About this author

Scorpio Richelle Mead is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of urban fantasy books for both adults and teens. Originally from Michigan, Richelle now lives in Seattle, Washington where she works on her three series full-time: Georgina Kincaid, Dark Swan, and Vampire Academy.

A life-long reader, Richelle has always loved mythology and folklore. When she can actually tear herself away from books (either reading or writing them), she enjoys bad reality TV, traveling, trying interesting cocktails, and shopping for dresses. She's a self-professed coffee addict and has a passion for all things wacky and humorous.

I honestly think the problem was that a lot of the VA fan base is teens--who don't have the means to raise money like adults. (The Veronica Mars fan base was people my age--with jobs!). I don't know if there's anything that can be done to make the sequel. It's not something I'm a part of, but I know the producers are really passionate, and if there's a way to do it, they'll find it! From the very beginning, they've had a lot of obstacles to work against since so many investors think vampires are "over." It's been an uphill battle, with a lot of work behind the scenes that fans aren't aware of. Keep your fingers crossed! :)(less)

“You can't force love, I realized. It's there or it isn't. If it's not there, you've got to be able to admit it. If it is there, you've got to do whatever it takes to protect the ones you love.”
Richelle Mead, Frostbite

“I’d said it before and meant it: Alive or undead, the love of my life was a badass.”
Richelle Mead, Blood Promise

“Do you think I'm pretty?
I think you're beautiful
Beautiful?
You are so beautiful, it hurts sometimes.”
Richelle Mead, Vampire Academy
