Siobhan Vivian attended an art program very much like the one in SAME DIFFERENCE, during the summer before her senior year of high school. It was there that she discovered she was bad at drawing and good at writing. But she still keeps a sketchbook anyway.

Upon the publication of A LITTLE FRIENDLY ADVICE, Siobhan’s first novel, Kirkus Reviews proclaimed “Vivian is clearly an author to watch,” calling the book “at once uplifting and heartwrenching.” For more information about Siobhan and her books, visit
