Annameekee Hesik- Author of The You Know Who Girls Series

Annameekee Hesik came out when she was fifteen and has since been obsessed with rainbows. After successfully surviving high school in Tucson, AZ, she went to college for five years and changed her major four times and she finally earned her BA in English Lit from UC Davis and her MA in Education from UC Santa Cruz. She now lives in Northern California, and when she isn’t teaching her amazingly inspiring students, she writes books that she hopes will help lesbian and questioning teens feel like they’re not the only you-know-who girls in the world. Her debut YA novel, The You Know Who Girls: Freshman Year is a Benjamin Franklin Independent Publishers award winner and its sequel, Driving Lessons, is in stores now and Curve Magazine calls it “jaunty and smooth, with the swish of a basket that’s nothing but net.” To learn more about Annameekee and her work and what the heck her name means, visit her website:, say hi on Facebook and send her a tweet @youknowwhogirls.
