P. J. Vernon was born in South Carolina and has been called “a name to watch in the thriller genre” (Booklist). Library Journal and Book Riot compare his acclaimed Gothic debut WHEN YOU FIND ME to Gillian Flynn’s SHARP OBJECTS. Vernon’s next thriller, BATH HAUS, pitched as “Gone Girl with gays and Grindr” is forthcoming in 2021 from Doubleday. Vernon is represented by Aevitas Creative Management and United Talent Agency (TV/film). He lives in Canada with his partner and two wily dogs.
