Hen&ink Coop: Ann Jacobus

About Ann Jacobus

Ann Jacobus’s debut YA thriller, Romancing the Dark in the City of Lights, (Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martin’s Griffin, 2015) won the 2016 Housatonic Book Award for Young Adult Literature. The Coldest Winter I Ever Spent is forthcoming in 2023. She’s published short fiction, essays, and poetry in magazines and journals in the U.S. and the U.K. She graduated from Dartmouth College and earned an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts. San Francisco is where she writes, teaches, volunteers on the crisis line at San Francisco Suicide Prevention and presents in high schools, and feeds her family crock-pot meals of canned soup, fowl, and whatever’s in the fridge.

She’ll be participating in an author panel on mental health in children’s literature at the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) conference in Louisville, KY, in November 2021. Find her on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and @annjacobus on Instagram.
