I’m Corinne Duyvis, award-winning author of science fiction and fantasy.

My debut YA fantasy novel Otherbound (2014) received four starred reviews, won the Bisexual Book Award, and was a Junior Library Guild selection.

My apocalyptic YA sci-fi novel On the Edge of Gone (2016) received three starred reviews, was a Kirkus Best Book of 2016, and won the Neukom Institute Literary Arts Award.

My most recent release is a YA fantasy novel titled The Art of Saving the World (2020); all three are published by Amulet Books/ABRAMS.

I’m also the author of Guardians of the Galaxy: Collect Them All (2017), an original prose novel set in the Marvel universe.
