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 got many rejections from literary agents before I signed with one. Also keep writing. While I was trying to get an agent for the first book I finished, I was writing a second and different book. My first one didn't catch on with anyone, but my second book (Succubus Blues) did. That's what got me an agent and began my publishing career. Years later, when I was more established and also more experienced at writing, I was able to get that first book into shape and get it published. It became Gameboard of the Gods. It's definitely a tough process, but don't give up! I really recommend working with literary agents and can't imagine my career without one. Because they do reject so many authors, you know that when you do get one, it's because they really, really love your work--and that's exactly the kind of person you want to work with. Good luck!(less)

Silver Shadows is here! And in case you haven't been out on social media, people are freaking out about it--in a good way. If you haven't picked up your copy, make sure you do soon. Big, big things are coming!

I've had a really great time this week talking to fans about the book. On Tuesday, I kicked off SS's release at University Book Store in Seattle, sharing all sorts of stories:

“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.”
