About this author

Sherry Thomas writes both historical romance and young adult fantasy.

On the romance side, she is one of the most acclaimed authors working in the genre today, her books regularly receiving starred reviews and best-of-the-year honors from trade publications. She is also a two-time winner of Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA® Award.

On the young adult fantasy side, there isn't much to say yet, as her debut book is not scheduled for publication until September 2013.

Sherry writes in her second language. She learned English by reading lots of romance and science fiction--every word Isaac Asimov ever wrote, in fact. She is proud to say that her son is her biggest fanboy--for the YA fantasy, not the romances. At least, not yet...

Jenny,

Think about how fast 2010 disappeared. 2012 will be here before you know it. :-)

And to everyone else who left comments,

I'm so sorry. I had no idea folks were leaving comments on my profile--until my husband changed the settings on GoodReads for new comments etc to show up in my inbox earlier this year. Thank you for all your kind words and happy reading!
