Neal Shusterman is an acclaimed American author and novelist, best known for producing works based around young-adult fiction.
Neal was born on November 12, 1962 in Brooklyn, New York, to a working class American family, and from the very beginning had developed a liking for reading books. At the age of 8, he ended up writing to the famed author E. B. White, asking him to write a sequel to his popular book Charlotte’s Web. White replied to his letter telling him that the book was fine as it was and didn’t need any sequel. This encouraged young Neal to take up writing, but it wasn’t until some years after that he took it up seriously.
