I'm Kody Keplinger, and I'm the author of four novels for kids and teens: The DUFF (Designated Ugly Fat Friend), Shut Out, A Midsummer's Nightmare, and The Swift Boys & Me.
I grew up in rural western Kentucky and began writing at a very early age. When I was seventeen, I wrote the first draft of The DUFF, which was later released during my sophomore year of college. I currently live in New York City with my German shepherd, Corey (or Cordelia, if you're feeling fancy) and continue to write.
I also have YouTube channel where I post new videos every Thursday. You should check it out!
