Seanan McGuire lives and works on the West Coast, where she does her best to bother all the frogs while avoiding all the weather. She is currently locked in a battle of wits (and talons) with the owl outside her bedroom window. When not writing, Seanan spends an unreasonable amount of time in haunted houses, haunted corn mazes, and the occasional haunted theme park. Her first book was released in 2009; since then, she has released more than twenty volumes through traditional publishers, thus proving that she doesn’t really sleep.
