My Young Adult Contemporary Fantasy Debut GUMIHO is due out from Putnam Books for Young Readers/Penguin in 2019 (with a sequel in 2020)!

A fresh and addictive fantasy-romance set in modern-day Seoul.

No one in modern-day Seoul believes in the old fables anymore, which makes it the perfect place to for Gu Miyoung and her mother to hide in plain sight. Miyoung is a gumiho, a nine-tailed fox, who must eat the souls of men to survive. She feeds every full moon–eating the souls of men who have committed crimes, but have evaded justice. Her life is upended when she kills a dokkaebi, a murderous goblin, to save the life of a human boy. But after Miyoung saves Jihoon’s life, the two develop a tenuous friendship that blooms into romance and starts them on a path that forces Miyoung to choose between her immortal life and Jihoon’s.
