Sylvia Izzo Hunter was born in Calgary, Alberta, but now lives in Toronto with her husband and daughter and their slightly out-of-control collections of books, comics, and DVDs. When not writing, she works in scholarly journal publishing, sings in two choirs, reads as much as possible, knits hats, and engages in experimental baking. Her favorite Doctor is Tom Baker, her favorite pasta shape is rotini, and her favorite Beethoven symphony is the Seventh. She is the author of The Midnight Queen.
Praise for The Midnight Queen
"The history of her world is not the usual stuff...inventive."--Marie Brennan, Author of The Memoirs of Lady Trent "A stunning story of magic, scholarship, and true love. Elegantly written, fast-paced and highly original...A remarkably assured debut."--Juliet Marillier, National Bestselling Author of Dreamer's Pool "Transported me back to those days when I discovered Anne McCaffrey, Robin McKinley, and...Tamora Pierce."--TheBookPushers.com
