Kiley Roache is a master’s student at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism. She is the author of FRAT GIRL and THE DATING GAME, two young adult novels published by Inkyard Press, a division of HarperCollins. Kiley grew up in the suburbs outside Chicago, and has been writing since the 7th grade. She signed with a literary agent days before graduating high school.
She is a graduate of Stanford University where she studied Political Science. She authored both her books while she was still a college student, and once got up early to look at copyedits before painting her face for a tailgate.
Kiley is also a journalist, and her bylines are in the Chicago Tribune’s teen publication The Mash, San Francisco Chronicle and The Wall Street Journal, among others. She has also blogged for Huffington Post Teen. In 2018, she wrote an op-ed for The New York Times’s “On Campus” series entitled “The Future of Frats” arguing that fraternities should go co-ed. It was the lead story in the Times’s “The Edit” newsletter that week.
She now lives in New York City where she is looking for a job for after graduation, and also for the best bagel in town.
