I was a child writer-dreamer who never strayed far from that path. Today I’m the award-winning author of sixteen books—dreaming my way toward more by night, while running a boutique marketing communications firm by day. I'm privileged to teach creative nonfiction at the University of Pennsylvania in spring semesters. Always and most importantly, I am privileged to be a mom. Look for GOING OVER, my seventeenth book, from Chronicle next April. My work has been or is being translated into sixteen languages. All content Copyright 2007-2013 Beth Kephart Books.

This is sort of amazing to me (sort of! who am I kidding?) but Small Damages has just been named to the Armchair BEA Central Best of 2012 list, along with The Fault in our Stars and Defiance. I'm pretty darned sure this is the first time my book has ever been mentioned in the same breath as the work of John Green or CJ Redwine, and, well, yes, of course I'm the gonzo underdog here, but...> It would be so cool if you voted. It just would be so cool.
You can vote for this category and many others here. Voting ends May 13.
I am so, well, grateful! Truly grateful. Is there another word?
