Biography

Kat Falls

Kat Falls lives in Evanston, Illinois with her husband, theater director Robert Falls, their three children and a whole slew of pets. She grew up in Silver Spring, Maryland, attended Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute as an undergrad and went on to receive an MFA from Northwestern University where she now teaches screenwriting.
 
Kat came up with the idea for her debut novel, DARK LIFE (Scholastic Press, May 2010), during a writing exercise. Knowing that her 11-year-old son loved reading about the ocean, Wild West pioneers and, of course, the X-Men, she combined his interests and created a story premise that kept her up nights plotting and world-building. Today, DARK LIFE has deals in eighteen international markets and is in development for film at Disney with the Gotham Group producing. Named an ABC New Voices pick for outstanding debuts of 2010, DARK LIFE was featured on The Today Show in July 2010 when it was selected by Al Roker for “Al’s Book Club for Kids.”  Dark Life has been nominated for children’s book awards in ten states and in 2011, Kat was awarded a Juvenile Literary Award by The Friends of American Writers’.
 
The sequel, RIP TIDE, was released by Scholastic Press in August, 2011. Each book has been designated as “A Junior Library Guild Selection.” Currently, Kat is working on a YA scifi-adventure trilogy, INHUMAN, acquired by Scholastic Press for publication beginning in Fall 2013.
