Meg Cabot - Royal Wedding and From the Notebooks of a Middle School Princess

I can’t believe it’s been a decade and a half since we first metthat so not-ready-for-royalty princess, Mia Thermopolis, andsix yearssince we last saw a book about about her!

And now they’re here at last:Royal Wedding, the first adult installment in the series that so many readers have been waiting for (and those who aren’t familiar wi...

Happy Holidays!


If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you know I’m pretty honest. There are some things I can’t say online because I try to be princessy, and princesses aren’t rude (to people’s faces).


But I think we can all agree that 2014 was a pretty terrible year. Borrowing from kids’ book author Megan McDonald, I started calling Summer of 2014 the Bummer Summer.


Amidst all the many national and global tragedies that occurred, He Who Shall Not Be Named In This Blog lost his father, and we...

Every year teachers let me know that the post below about my experience living in Manhattan a few dozen blocks from the World Trade Center on 9/11 has become part of their classroom curriculum, so I continue to post it annually.

I think it’s especially important to post this year given the fact that the other day I overheard some guy ask: “Why should we care if a few Westerners want to join ISIS? What’s the worst that could happen?”

I’d like to think this guy is just some random butthole, bu...

You: “Hey, Meg, why don’t you have any books coming out in 2014?”


Me: “Because I’ve been so busy on a couple secret projects!”


Thanks to this exclusive story from the Wall Street Journal, they aren’t so secret anymore.


2015 is a special year for me. It marks the 15th Anniversary of the publication of The Princess Diaries, Volume 1, and Shadowland, Book 1 in The Mediator series.To celebrate this, in Summer 2015, I’ll be releasingthree new books: two in thePrincess Diariesseries, andone in theMedi...
