Amy Tintera started writing novels as a kid during her middle school science classes, which probably explains why she has always been very bad at science. She is the author of several teen novels, and her first book for adults, LISTEN FOR THE LIE, was an instant New York Times Bestseller and a Good Morning America Book Club pick. 


She has a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Texas A&M and a master’s degree in media arts/screenwriting from Emerson College. She worked as a talent agency assistant in Hollywood before becoming an author. Raised in Austin, Texas, she frequently sets her novels in the Lone Star state, but she now lives in Los Angeles, where there's far less humidity, but not nearly enough Tex-Mex.
