Chris Hernandez (HarperCollins Children’s Books/HarperTeen) is a children’s book author and editor. After nearly eight years in industry, he’s had the privilege of working with such stellar talents as Newbery Medalist Katherine Applegate, National Book Award winner Thanhhà Lại, and #1 New York Times bestselling author Pittacus Lore. His current list includes Jaye Robin Brown’s critically acclaimed young adult novel Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit, the action-packed middle-grade series Going Wild by Lisa McMann, a hilarious middle-grade series by Tyler Whitesides called The Wishmakers, and the adorable forthcoming picture book Good Dog by Cori Doerrfeld. He enjoys books with multi-layered humor, well-crafted mysteries, thrilling adventure, witty voices, magic right next door, or a unique twist on something familiar. Even better if it’s some combination of those. When Chris is not editing, he loves to write everything from cover copy for his authors to birthday cards with a well-thought-out pun—and sometimes even a book or two.
