Molly Kasperek graduated from the George Washington University in 2013 with a B.A. in Political Communication. She graduated again in 2016 from Syracuse University with an M.A. in Television-Radio-Film. She sought both degrees because she watched entirely too much of The West Wing during her formative years and couldn’t decide if she wanted to write speeches or screenplays. It turns out she wanted to write books.

Over the years, Molly has worked at the concession stand of her local pool, in law libraries, on the sidelines of sporting events with a camera in hand, and behind the scenes in television development and production. She has written and edited essays and recaps of popular TV shows for Off Color TV and The Televixen. In 2017, her YA contemporary novel was selected for Pitch Wars. She grew up in both Alabama and Ohio but her favorite place to live is Washington, DC. She loves YA books, college football, black coffee, Captain America, and oxford commas. Molly currently resides in Pittsburgh where she works as a children’s library assistant.
