About the Author

Born in Buffalo, New York, Catherine Ryan Hyde moved to New York City shortly after graduating from high school.

Hyde moved to a small town on California s Central Coast in the mid-1980s. After coming to terms with alcohol and drug addiction, she realized she needed to write and hunkered down. She s been clean and sober for over twenty-five years and is the author of thirty books and numerous short stories, which have won literary accolades throughout the world. Hyde s bestselling novel Pay It Forward was adapted into a major motion picture and translated into more than two dozen languages for distribution in over thirty countries.
