About A.V. Geiger

Option3 headshotA.V. Geiger is a former epidemiologist turned author of YA thrillers. Her academic interests include women’s psychiatric and reproductive health, and she spent 10 years employed as a public health researcher with the NYC Department of Health & Mental Hygiene.

Her non-academic interests? Fangirling, following people back, photoshopping the heads of band members onto the bodies of unicorns… and writing scary stories about all of the above! Thus was born her second career as an author. Her original teen fiction has received millions of hits online, posted under the Wattpad username @adam_and_jane, with over 300,000 followers and counting. Her YA romantic thriller, Follow Me Back, was the #1 ranked Mystery/Thriller on Wattpad in 2015.

In 2017, A.V. made her debut as a traditionally published author with a revised and expanded version of Follow Me Back (Sourcebooks Fire, 2017), which went on to be translated and published in over 10 languages. She followed up this smash international success with a sequel, Tell Me No Lies (Sourcebooks Fire, 2018), and her third novel Scared Little Rabbits (Sourcebooks Fire, 2019).

She lives in New Jersey with her husband and two children.
