Rainbow Rowell Biography


Type: Writer

Born: February 24, 1973


Sometimes she writes about adults ("Attachments" and "Landline"). Sometimes she writes about teenagers ("Eleanor & Park" and "Fangirl"). But she always writes about people who talk a lot. And people who feel like they're screwing up. And people who fall in love. When she's not writing, Rainbow is reading comic books, planning Disney World trips and arguing about things that don't really matter in the big scheme of things. She lives in Nebraska with her husband and two sons.

I want someone whose heart is big enough to hold me.. Rainbow Rowell
I want someone whose heart is big enough to hold me.

Every woman wants a man who'll fall in love with her soul as well as her body.

The first time he'd held her hand, it felt so good that it crowded out all the bad things. It felt better than anything had ever hurt.
