About The Author

Neal Shusterman

Neal Shusterman (author of Unwind, Bruiser, Skinjacker series and more) is a popular and successful American author of Young Adult literature.

Shusterman’s inspiration for writing first came in ninth grade, when his English teacher, seeing a spark of creativity in his writing, challenged him to write her a short creative story. He has stated that his teacher’s short challenges not only helped him improve as a writer but also allowed him to get better at other skills, such as time management and work ethics.

Neal has made his mark as a successful novelist, screenwriter, and television writer. As a full-time writer, he claims to be his own hardest task-master, always at work creating new stories to tell. His books have received many awards from organizations such as the International Reading Association, and the American Library Association, as well as garnering a myriad of state and local awards across the country.

Wherever Neal goes, he quickly earns a reputation as a storyteller and dynamic speaker. Much of his fiction is traceable back to stories he tells to large audiences of children and teenagers — such as his novel The Eyes of Kid Midas. As a speaker, Neal is in constant demand at schools and conferences. Degrees in both psychology and drama give Neal a unique approach to writing. Neal’s novels always deal with topics that appeal to adults as well as teens, weaving true-to-life characters into sensitive and riveting issues, and binding it all together with a unique and entertaining sense of humor.

Neal Shusterman lives in Southern California with his children Brendan, Jarrod, Joelle, and Erin, who are a constant source of inspiration!

Scythe
Book #1 in Arc of a Scythe Series
By Neal Shusterman

You know what I like about Neal Shusterman? The fact that he challenges his readers with every new concept, new world, new book he writes. He takes the humanity out of the humans, he moulds it and twists it and puts it inside the souls of his characters. You think it’s not the same, that you are safe because this is fiction, …

Book #2 in Unwind Dystology Series
By Neal Shusterman

A few years ago I read my first dystopian book (Unwind) and it really blew my mind. The world settling, the characters, the storyline, everything was perfect and in that moment I wished for the book to be part of a series. My wish came true:  a sequel (for one of the most emotional stories) …

Unwind
Book #1 in Unwind Dystology Series
By Neal Shusterman

Unwind has been my first dystopian story (if I remember well). To be honest, I could go back and underrate so many books I’ve read over the past years, because after re-reading this one I know for sure: there is no place for them on the same shelf as ‘Unwind’. It totally blew my mind – then and now.
