Seanan McGuire lives and works in Washington State, where she shares her somewhat idiosyncratic home with her collection of books, creepy dolls, and enormous blue cats. When not writing--which is fairly rare--she enjoys travel, and can regularly be found any place where there are cornfields, haunted houses, or frogs. A Campbell, Hugo, and Nebula Award-winning author, Seanan's first book (Rosemary and Rue, the beginning of the October Daye series) was released in 2009, with more than twenty books across various series following since. Seanan doesn't sleep much.

Praise for the Ghost Roads series
"Hitchhiking ghosts, the unquiet dead, the gods of the old
American roads--McGuire enters the company of Lindskold and Gaiman
with this book, creating a wistful, funny, fascinating new
mythology of diners, corn fields, and proms in this
all-in-one-sitting read!" --Tamora Pierce, #1 New York Times
bestelling author "Seanan McGuire doesn't write stories, she gifts
us with Myth--new Myths for a layered America that guide us
off the twilight roads and lend us a pretty little dead girl to
show us the way home." --Tanya Huff, author of the Blood books
"McGuire is a writer to be reckoned with, landing stone-cold
emotional blows in quick succession while simultaneously
stringing laugh-out-loud moments alongside lush
descriptions, knife-sharp badinage and quickfire action
sequences." --Strange Horizons "This stunning, richly imagined
story of love and destiny features an irresistible heroine and is
one of the accomplished McGuire's best yet."
"The author takes a deliberately lyrical tone with this series, making the story feel like a folk song. She has a gift for putting her heroines in danger and finding creative ways to return them to see them out of it." --Library Journal "The first volume of McGuire's Ghost Stories is an evocative and profoundly creative work that instantly wraps around readers' imaginations.... This emotional, consistently surprising collection of adventures is also a striking testament to the power of American myths and memories." --RT Reviews (top pick) "If you've read any of McGuire's previous books, then you'll know she has a penchant for wit and humor; it's on display here as well. As with the myths she uses to create the world, it's all blended together quite impressively." --Culturess
