Rainbow Rowell

Rainbow Rowell

Rainbow Rowell is only very good at two things – reading and writing, in that order.

People who are good only at reading and writing, and who also want health insurance, usually study journalism. Rainbow earned a journalism degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in 1995 and at, 24, became the youngest-ever – and first female – columnist at the Omaha World-Herald. (Which maybe won’t sound like such a big deal to you, but she was pretty proud of herself at the time and celebrated with lots of Carlo Rossi Paisano.)

Though her first novel, ATTACHMENTS, is set in a newsroom, it couldn’t be less of a true story. She met her husband in junior high and can hardly get him to read her column, let alone her email.

Her second novel, ELEANOR & PARK – sort of an East Omaha Romeo & Juliet – comes out in March 2013. (If you liked Attachments, you might like this one, too. The stakes are higher. And there’s more kissing.)

Her third book, FANGIRL, another love and geek and family story, also comes out next year.

When she’s not writing, Rainbow is reading comic books, planning Disney World trips and arguing with people about things that don’t really matter in the big scheme of things. She has two sons, and if God hears her prayers, they will grow up just as nerdy and true-hearted as the protagonists of her books.
