Since its publication in June 2011, this offbeat blend of supernatural fantasy and vintage photography has dominated the YA best-seller lists-and with a Tim Burton adaptation arriving in 2016, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children shows no sign of slowing down.
Ransom Riggs grew up in Florida. His hobbies include wreck diving and collecting vintage photography. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, bestselling author Tahereh Mafi.
