Bill Konigsberg

Bill Konigsberg's many identities include (not in order of importance): full-time writer, part-time candy-maker, former sports journalist, pretty decent softball player, injury-prone racquetballer, exasperated Labradoodle-wrangler, adequate karaoke performer, and occasionally cloying husband. He is the author of Out of the Pocket, which won the Lambda Literary Award for young adult fiction, and Openly Straight, which was named to the YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults list and won the Sid Fleischman Award for Humor. Bill lives in Chandler, Arizona, with his husband, Chuck, and their Labradoodles of Truth, Mabel and Buford.
