Tyler James Smith

Tyler James Smith was born and raised in Royal Oak, Michigan. He attended Western Michigan University, where he was fortunate enough to live with people much funnier and more creative than himself. He's worked in restaurants, at a bookstore, in the schools, as a mailman, and one time as an extra in a zombie movie. His debut YA novel, UNSTOPPABLE MOSES, is forthcoming from Flatiron Books in fall 2018. Tyler lives in Chicago with his significant other and an old Australian Cattle Dog named Dioji.
