Margie Gelbwasser has written for many magazines including SELF, Ladies' Home Journal, Parents, New Jersey Monthly, and Girls' Life. She's had two YA novels published by Flux. Inconvenient (2010) was named a 2011 Sydney Taylor Notable Book for Teens, and Kirkus called Pieces of Us (2012) “suspenseful, disturbing, and emotionally fraught.” Her next YA, Violent Ends, is a collaborative novel edited by Shaun Hutchinson and contains sixteen authors, including Brendan and Neil Shusterman. It will be published by Simon Pulse in Fall 2015. She also writes middle grade books, under the name Margaret Gurevich. Chloe by Design: Making the Cut is her first middle grade novel, with the sequel, Balancing Act, coming out in Fall 2015. The Chloe by Design books are billed as a "Project Runway for teens" and have received praise from VOYA, Booklist, Kirkus, and School Library Journal.
