About Elin Hilderbrand
Hilderbrand was born July 17, 1969 in Collegeville, Pennsylvania. She grew up in a small town with her four loving siblings, with her parents divorcing when she was around five years old. She spent many happy summers on nearby Cape Cod, enjoying the weather, exploring different sports and collecting fun and shiny objects off the beach until her father died in a plane crash when she was 16. She had to work tirelessly in a factory for several summers after that tragedy. It was at this time that Hilderbrand became determined to once again fully experience and enjoy her summers.
Hilderbrand went on to be a successful graduate of John Hopkins University with a degree in Creative Writing. Hilderbrand worked a short time at a publishing press but quit within a year and moved to New York City to start teaching. She spent a summer in Nantucket, Massachusetts in 1993 and was thrilled with island life and the people there. She met Chip Cunningham and married him shortly after in 1995. She had a brief fellowship at the University of Iowa Writers' Workshop but didn't enjoy her time and felt like she didn't belong. She also spent time working at a local paper writing ads, which ultimately lead to her publishing her first novel The Beach Club in 2000.
Hilderbrand has steadily produced exciting summer reads since her first successful books. Her sixth novel Barefoot was a bestseller that shot Hilderbrand's name into worldwide reading clubs. Her first few books were published by St. Martin's Press until she switched to Little, Brown and Company. She has been successfully exploring new genres and characters ever since. In her personal life, Hilderbrand separated from her husband in 2015. They have three children together including Maxx, Dawson and Shelby. This author was tragically diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014 and underwent a double mastectomy that same year. She is now happy, healthy and always positive about her life and circumstances.
Hilderbrand has recently stated that she intends to wrap up her writing career and move toward movie or television adaptations of her work by 2024.
