I was born in Van Nuys, CA in 1986. I grew up in Encino with a nice family, mom, dad, two little brothers. My hobbies were reading and math and getting picked last in P.E.
I studied English and East Asian Studies in college, then went to law school, where I started writing fiction in earnest. I took the bar, but spent a year on my parents’ couch revising and shopping Follow Her Home, which I sold it to St. Martin’s Minotaur in the summer of 2011. FHH came out on April 16, 2013. My second book, Beware Beware comes out August 12, 2014. Third book TBA. I publish other things here and there, primarily freelance book reviews and food writing for the Los Angeles Times. I have a day job. I split my time between writing and working as a temp attorney.
I live in Los Feliz with my husband Matt and my basset hound Duke. I read a lot, 99% fiction. I have a very active GoodReads page, so if you want to know what I’m reading, you can follow along here: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/6457876.Steph_Cha.
