I'm Cecilia Vinesse, and I'm the author of two books about teenagers who wander cities and fall in love: Seven Days of You and The Summer of Us.
I was born in France, raised between Japan and South Carolina, and I then moved to New York City where I attended Barnard College and, eventually, worked in children's book publishing. After that, I got a job in the cold and snow of northern Japan and, from there, headed to Scotland where I earned my master's degree in creative writing at the University of St Andrews.
Now, I live in a small Edwardian house in England where I spend most of my time writing in my sky-blue office, daydreaming in coffee shops, and holding late-night marathons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
A pug named Malfi and a Renaissancist named Rachel are my favorite things in the world. And also books. I should probably mention the books again.
