Rainbow Rowell



Rainbow Rowell. Author, music-lover, mother, Nebraskan, and the first female first female columnist at the Omaha World-Herald.

Rainbow (yes, her real, actual first name) writes no two books alike, but all her books involve hearty servings of talking and romance. In person, she comes off as quirky and delightful as the stories she writes.

She is also a music lover—it’s a big part of her writing process. The Mountain Goats and a song by Wild Beasts was her muse while writing one of the more climactic scenes of Eleanor & Park. She even did a book signing alongside The Mountain Goat’s main man John Darnielle (which brought on some teary eyes). Another notable favorite of Rainbow Rowell is the theme song for Taxi (right).

She enjoys comic books, and started reading them when a boy on her bus shared them with her (just like Park does in Eleanor & Park, in case you were wondering).

Cath has some problems with college. Her world—her sister, her dad, her cherished fandom and fanfiction writing—are slipping away from her while anxiety slides in amidst new classes, new people, and new situations.


As Magician Simon Snow starts his last year at the Watford School of Magicks, deadly monsters and more await. From the fake fantasy series in Rowell’s Fangirl, Carry On is part self-aware Harry Potter spoof and part magical journey all its own.

Eleanor and Park don’t meet on the best terms. Forced to share a bus seat, these two resent each other… until they share comics and mixtapes. A blunt, back-and-forth romance with more cutting wit than sap, this read is hot-to-the-touch, adorable, alarming, and grabs you till the last page.

Eleanor & Park

Rainbow Rowell's favorite book as a teen was The World According to Garp by John Irving. It took her around 7 or 8 years to finish her first novel, Attachments, so before she became an official author, she worked as a newspaper columnist.
