Would you like a signed copy of The Thing About Jellyfish or The Next Great Paulie Fink? Place an order with Water Street Books. At checkout, there will be an opportunity to include a note. This can be used to request personalization. I’d want to know the individual’s name, but also anything specific about the person receiving the book.

If it’s about a potential book project, please start with my agent, Mollie Glick at Creative Artists Agency.

You can email me at [email protected] Please put “WEBSITE” in the subject line. Please understand that if I’m writing or editing, I won’t be able to respond right away, but I will periodically search my inbox for messages that have “website” in the subject line.

Kids: if you’re looking for information for a report, please head over to the FAQs page; chances are, you’ll find the information you need there. 

Teachers: please, please do not make a child’s grade contingent upon whether an author personally replies to their message. Please. I’ve seen this a few times; it’s unfair to both child and author. Thanks for understanding.
