Who is Colleen Hoover?

Colleen Hoover (born December 11, 1979) is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of eleven novels and five novellas. Her novels fall into the New Adult and young adult categories.Hoover published her first novel, Slammed, in January 2012. Since then, all of her full-length novels have become New York Times Best Sellers. Her book "it ends with us" is categoried as her overall highest selling-and wellread book. Early life and career Colleen Hoover was born on December 11, 1979, in Sulphur Springs, Texas, to Vannoy Fite and Eddie Fennell. She grew up in Saltillo, Texas, and graduated from Saltillo High School in 1998. In 2000, she married Heath Hoover, with whom she has three sons. Hoover graduated from Texas A&M-Commerce with a degree in social work. She worked various social work and teaching jobs until starting her writing career.In November 2011, Hoover began her first novel, Slammed, with no intention of getting published. She was inspired by a lyric, "decide what to be and go be it", from an Avett Brothers song, "Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise." Because of this, she incorporated Avett Brothers lyrics throughout the story. After a few months, her novel was reviewed and given 5 stars by a major book blogger, Maryse Black. After that, sales rapidly increased, and Slammed and its sequel, Point of Retreat, both made the New York Times Best Seller list. Bibliography Slammed Hoover self-published her debut novel, Slammed, in January 2012. It first made the New York Times Best Seller list on July 22, and peaked at #8 in e-book fiction on August 5. Atria Books picked it up and republished it on August 10. Point of Retreat Hoover self-published Point of Retreat, the sequel to Slammed, in February 2012. Point of Retreat first made the New York Times Best Seller list on July 29 and peaked at #18 on August 5. Atria Books picked it up too and republished it on August 10. This Girl Atria Books published This Girl, the third and final installment in the Slammed series, on April 30, 2013. It made the New York Times Best Seller list on May 19, peaking at #9. A Father's Kiss A Father's Kiss is a short story and a follow-up to the Slammed series. Hoover published it as part of an anthology, The Kiss: An Anthology of Love and Other Close Encounters, on January 15, 2014. Hopeless Hoover self-published Hopeless in December 2012. On January 6, 2013, it debuted on the New York Times Best Seller list at #19. On January 20, it peaked at #1 and remained there for three weeks.

Hoover sold the paperback rights to Atria in January 2013, and the paperback released on May 7. Hoover still owns her e-book rights. Hopeless is about a girl who was home-schooled all her life before finally going to public high school.

Losing Hope Atria published Losing Hope, the POV companion novel to Hopeless, on July 8, 2013. It debuted and peaked at #6 on the New York Times Best Seller list on July 28. Finding Cinderella Finding Cinderella is a free novella that Hoover published as a thank you to her fans for their support. It is a spinoff of Hopeless and Losing Hope and features several of the same characters. Originally, neither Hoover nor Atria intended to offer Finding Cinderella in paperback form, because the intention was to offer the book for free. But overwhelming demands from Hoover’s fans led Atria to publish a paperback complete with several bonus features, such as a new epilogue and Hoover’s own "Cinderella story".
