Graci Kim is a MG/YA author of Korean-Kiwi extraction, currently living in Middle Earth, aka New Zealand. She has an insatiable interest in all things supernatural (witches and ghosts never get old), and writes contemporary fantasy novels about girls who are full of dreams and hungry for magic. She grew up wishing she could read books about girls who looked like her, so now she’s committed to putting her diversity onto the page.

When she’s not writing, you can find her knitting aesthetically-challenged scarves, eating all the things, and probably asking for directions. She also believes most of our daily problems can be solved by hugging a dog (or ideally, many). Graci is represented by Carrie Pestritto of Laura Dail Literary Agency.
