Writing vs Re-Writing

on April 18, 2023

FAKE DATES INSPIRED BY ROM-COMS

on August 18, 2020

By Pintip Dunn I adore rom-com movies. In fact, for an all-too-brief period, my husband and I had the tradition of celebrating our dating anniversary by watching a rom-com at the theaters. (Lucky for us, our anniversary is Valentine’s Day, so there was no shortage of romantic movies!) We saw My Best Friend’s Wedding on… Read More

Pintip Dunn

Pintip Dunn

A first-generation Thai American, I grew up in a tiny town in Kansas. I went on tograduate from Harvard University, magna cum laude, with an A.B., and to receive her J.D. at Yale Law School.

I'm a two-time RITA award winner and aNew York Timesbestselling author of young adult fiction. My books have been translated into four languages, and I've been a Junior Library Guild selection and have received a starred review from Kirkus. In addition, my books have been nominated for the following awards: the Grand Prix de l'Imaginaire; the Japanese Sakura Medal; the MASL Truman Award; the Tome Society It list; the Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Award; and a Kirkus Reviews Best Indie Book of the Year.

I'm obsessed with penguins, and my childhood dream was to marry someone whose last name is "Gwynn" --- so that my name could be "Pin Gwynn." Alas, I got stuck with Dunn instead, but my husband and three children are worth the sacrifice.

We all visit Thailand yearly in order to stay connected with my family.
