R J Palacio lives in NYC with her husband, two sons, and two dogs. For many years, she was an art director and book jacket designer, designing covers for countless well-known and not so well-known writers in every genre of fiction and nonfiction. R J always wanted to write, though. She kept waiting for the perfect time in her life to start writing, but after more than twenty years of designing book jackets for other people, she realised that the perfect time would never really present itself. It's never the perfect time to start writing a book. So she decided to just go for it. Her first novel was the internationally bestselling Wonder, which was the UK’s biggest children's debut hardback of 2012 and continues to be a No.1 New York Times bestseller. She also recently published The Julian Chapter, a digital e short and 365 Days of Wonder, a companion book to Wonder.
