Author Bio: Kiersten White

Author Bio: Kiersten White

Kiersten White is the New York Times bestselling author of the Paranormalcy trilogy, The Chaos of Stars, and the psychological thriller Mind Games. Although originally meant to be the story of a femme fatale, Mind Games and Perfect Lies quickly turned into the story of two sisters and impossible choices. This may be because Kiersten has three sisters, none of whom she has killed for, but all of whom she has considered killing at one point or another. Kiersten lives in San Diego with her family.
