Stephen David Hurley

Writer. Teacher. Believer in Young People

Hi, my name is Stephen David Hurley, and I’m the author of Cease & Desist, a YA thriller. Welcome to my new website. I do hope you’ll make yourselves at home here. At the moment, I’m teaching and coaching at independent schools in San Francisco and writing A  Long Line of Strong Girls, my new YA novel. It should be complete by the end of 2017. Stop by my blog for updates on my life in the classroom, my opinions on all things young adult, and what’s really going on in the world.
