Shusterman’s books for teens, including The Schwa Was HereEverlost, and Unwind, have won numerous national awards. His latest book, Antsy Does Time, is a companion title to The Schwa Was Here.


Neal Shusterman was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. Though he had lots of interests and aspirations in high school, he credits his ninth-grade English teacher, who challenged him to write a story a month for extra credit, with nurturing his sense of himself as writer.

No years of toiling in anonymity for Shusterman — within a year of graduation from college at UC Irvine, he had landed both a book deal and a job working on a movie script, and his life as a full-time writer — of young-adult literature, TV shows music, stage plays, short films, even games — had begun.

Shusterman’s books for teens, including The Schwa Was Here, Everlost, and Unwind, have won numerous national awards. His latest book, Antsy Does Time, is a companion title to The Schwa Was Here.

Shusterman lives with his family in Southern California.
