Katie Finn is the pen (and middle!) name of author Morgan Matson.  She was born in New York City and grew up there and in Greenwich, Connecticut. She has a brother, Jason, who is now a lawyer and who would like her to go on record as saying he is nothing like the brother characters in her books.

She attended Occidental College (not a dental school) and then The New School (actually very old) where she received her MFA in Writing for Children. She also received a second MFA (because, why not) in Writing for Film and Television from USC.

She is the author of the Top 8 trilogy – Top 8, What’s Your Status, and Unfriended.  These books follow Madison MacDonald and her group of friends through Facebook-hacking mysteries, prom heists, and social-media vengeance plots. 

She is also the author of the Broken Hearts & Revenge Trilogy. The first book in the series, Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend drops May 2014.

She has never plotted revenge on anyone (who didn’t deserve it). She lives in Los Angeles, with her dog Murphy, in a house she wishes was a lot closer to the beach.
