Barry Lyga

Barry Lyga has published seventeen novels in various genres in his eleven-year career, including the New York Times bestselling I Hunt Killers. After graduating from Yale with a degree in English, Lyga worked in the comic book industry before quitting to pursue his lifelong love of writing. In 2006, his first young adult novel was published, The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl which was soon followed Boy Toy, Goth Girl Rising, I Hunt Killers among others. Lyga lives and podcasts near New York City with his wife, Morgan Baden, their nigh-omnipotent daughter, and their preternaturally chill son. His comic book collection is a lot smaller than it used to be but is still way too big.
