Gae Polisner is the author of The Pull of Gravity and numerous other yet-unpublished manuscripts. As a child, Gae was always reading and writing, two constants in a sea of revolving short-lived hobbies: gymnastics, acting, and mostly trying to dance as well as her older sister (who eventually landed on Broadway).
As a child, Gae wrote poems and short stories, taking creative writing classes through high school and college before attending law school and spending the next decade practicing law and starting her family. It was only upon the birth of her second son that Gae returned to her first love of writing. She strives with her young adult fiction to create character-driven stories filled with love and longing, heartbreak and family drama, reminiscent of those books she loved reading as a teen by the likes of Judy Blume, S. E. Hinton, and Paul Zindel.
Gae is still a practicing divorce lawyer and mediator. She lives on Long Island with her husband and two awesome boys. When not writing, she can be found swimming in the open waters off Long Island, and holds out hope that her wetsuit will one day turn her into a superhero.
