Garth Stein

Best-selling Author of "The Art of Racing in the Rain" & "How Evan Broke His Head and Other Secrets"

Garth Stein Biography

Garth Stein’s newest novel is "A Sudden Light," published by Simon and Schuster in September, 2013. He is the author of three previous novels: "Raven Stole the Moon," "How Evan Broke His Head and Other Secrets," and "The Art of Racing in the Rain." The Art of Racing in the Rain has sold more than 4 million copies in 35 languages, and spent more than three years on the New York Times bestseller list. It has inspired a Young Reader edition as well as a children’s picture book adaptation (2014), a stage adaptation by Book-It Repertory Theatre in Seattle, and is currently in development with Universal Studios for a major motion picture.

Garth is also the author of a full-length play, "Brother Jones," which had its premiere in Los Angeles at Theater of Angels in 2005, and was described as “brimming with intensity,” by The Los Angeles Weekly. Brother Jones served as inspiration for Garth’s latest novel, A Sudden Light.

Before turning to writing full-time, Garth was a documentary filmmaker, directing, editing, and/or producing several award-winning films, including The Lunch Date, winner of the Academy award for live action short in 1990, and The Last Party, starring Robert Downey, Jr.

Garth is co-founder of Seattle7Writers, a non-profit organization dedicated to energizing readers and writers and their communities by providing funding, programming, donations of free books to those in need, and generally inspiring enthusiasm for reading. In 2010, The Novel: Live!, a Seattle7Writers event conceived by Garth, brought 36 authors together to write a novel in 6 days before a live audience at Seattle’s Richard Hugo House. The writing marathon was simulcast on the Internet, drawing a global audience. Designed as an entertaining fundraiser with an educational component, the result of TN:L! was published by Open Road Media in 2011 as "Hotel Angeline: A Novel in 36 Voices," and continues to sell as an e-book and paperback. One hundred percent of the authors’ proceeds is donated to literacy.
