Ellen Hopkins        

New York Times Bestselling Novelist

Elle Hopkins began her writing career in 1990. She started with nonfiction books for children, including "Air Devils" and "Orcas: High Seas Supermen."

Hopkins has since written several verse novels exposing teenage struggles such as drug addiction, mental illness and prostitution, including "Crank," "Burned," "Impulse," "Identical," "Glass," "Tricks," "Tilt" and "Fallout." "Glass" is the sequel to "Crank," and "Fallout," the third and final book in the series, was released on September 14, 2010. "Perfect" was released on September 13, 2011, and is a companion novel to "Impulse." Ellen Hopkins's book, "Tilt," was released September 11, 2012, and is a companion from the point of view of the teens mentioned in "Triangles." Hopkins explained she feels they needed their own story after the release of "Triangles."

Her second adult novel, "Collateral," came out in the fall of 2012. It is about military deployment and how the families that are left behind are affected. Hopkins wants us to remember that as our men and women return from the Middle East, they come home profoundly changed. Coping with that transformation can be challenging for the soldiers and for their loved ones. This book may help readers open their minds and hearts to the new lifestyles they will be living.

In 2013, she released the sequel to her bestselling book "Burned," "Smoke," and later announced her book "Rumble," about a boy questioning his faith after his brother commits suicide, "Tangled," about a woman who falls in love with a sociopath, and "Traffick," a sequel to her bestseller "Tricks."
