Jeff Zentner came to writing through music. He started his creative life as a guitarist, eventually becoming a songwriter, and releasing five albums. He has appeared on recordings with Iggy Pop, Nick Cave, Warren Ellis, Thurston Moore, Debbie Harry, Mark Lanegan, and Lydia Lunch, among others and has given a TED talk on creativity. His first novel, The Serpent King won the 2017 American Library Association's William C. Morris YA Debut Award which celebrates impressive new voices in young adult literature. As the book continues to grow a wider fanbase of readers and admirers, Jeff Zentner returns to the heart of teenage lives with his next YA novel Goodbye Days (2017) about loss and friendship, described by NY Times best-selling author Nicola Yoon as ‘gorgeous, heartbreaking, and ultimately life-affirming’. Jeff Zentner lives in Nashville, Tennessee with his wife and son.
