Chnnya Clugston self portrait

Chynna Clugston is an American comic book creator and a multiple Harvey and Eisner Award nominee. She is a big fan of British Culture, including mod fashion, Britpop, and slang. If she didn't think of California as the coolest place in the world, where she was born and raised, she'd probably be living it up in London. Chynna's artist influences include Evan Dorkin, Dan Clowes and Rumiko Takahashi. She has been brainstorming book ideas since she was a teenager in high school.

Some of Chynna's creations include the popular Blue Monday and Scooter Girl comic series. Chynna has also worked on Buffy the Vampire Slayer comics and Marvel comic series.

Chynna's first title for Scholastic's Graphix imprint is Queen Bee. Queen Bee tells the story of Haley Madison, the new girl in town. Haley spends the summer reinventing herself-and trying to control those problematic little secret powers of hers. She soon meets another new girl, Alexa Harmon, and they soon find out they have much more in common than they ever thought.

Chynna Clugston is currently living in San Diego, California.
