About this author

Hi! I'm Seanan McGuire, author of the Toby Daye series (Rosemary and Rue, A Local Habitation, An Artificial Night, Late Eclipses), as well as a lot of other things. I'm also Mira Grant (www.miragrant.com), author of Feed and Deadline.

Born and raised in Northern California, I fear weather and am remarkably laid-back about rattlesnakes. I watch too many horror movies, read too many comic books, and share my house with two monsters in feline form, Lilly and Alice (Siamese and Maine Coon).

I do not check this inbox. Please don't send me messages through Goodreads; they won't be answered. I don't want to have to delete this account. :(


Morning, all.

I just logged into this account to check some book info, and discovered that I had messages in my inbox (wtf?). I won't be answering them, because that would be committing to coming back to check for replies, and I can't do that right now. I'm sorry.

My general policy is that I read all email that comes through my website contact form (http://seananmcguire.com/contact.php), and repl... Read more of this blog post »

“The turtle couldn't help us.”
Stephen King, It

“There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, where the sea's asleep and the rivers dream, people made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there's danger, somewhere there's injustice and somewhere else the tea is getting cold. Come on, Ace, we've got work to do.”
Sylvester McCoy

“Behold! For now I wear the human pants!”
Mike Krahulik

“The true secret in being a hero lies in knowing the order of things. The swineherd cannot already be wed to the princess when he embarks on his adventures, nor can the boy knock on the witch's door when she is already away on vacation. The wicked uncle cannot be found out and foiled before he does something wicked. Things must happen when it is time for them to happen. Quests may not simply be abandoned; prophecies may not be left to rot like unpicked fruit; unicorns may go unrescued for a very long time, but not forever. The happy ending cannot come in the middle of the story.”
Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn

“Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.”
Stephen King
