Kami Garcia is the #1 New York Times & USA Today bestselling co-author of the Beautiful Creatures novels & the Dangerous Creatures novels, and the author of the instant New York Times bestseller & Bram Stoker Award nominated novels UNBREAKABLE & UNMARKED in the Legion Series. Her contemporary romance THE LOVELY RECKLESS releases on October 4th (Imprint/Macmillan).


Kami grew up outside of Washington DC, wore lots of black, and spent hours writing poetry in spiral notebooks. When Kami isn't writing, she lives to bake, watch bad disaster movies, and listen to Soundgarden. She lives in Maryland with her husband, son, daughter, and their dogs Spike and Oz (named after characters from Buffy the Vampire Slayer).

I started out in college as a fine arts major. Even though I ultimately ended up being a writer, I still see the world in pictures.


When I’m building a new story, images allow me to physically see the characters and the places the way I visualize them in my mind. Inspiration boards are also a great way to get the feel for the mood of the book, or a particular scene.

“I'm just the librarian. I can only give you the books. I can't give you the answers.”
Kami Garcia, Beautiful Creatures

“His eyes softened. I thought maybe he pitied me, but it was something else. "Ultimately, it will be your burden to bear. It's always the Mortal who bears it. Trust me, I know."

"I don't trust you and you're wrong. We aren't too different."

"Mortals. I envy you. You think you can change things. Stop the universe. Undo what was done long before you came along. You are such beautiful creatures." He was talking to me, but it didn't feel like he was talking about me anymore. "I apologize for the intrusion. I'll leave you to your sleep.”
Kami Garcia, Beautiful Creatures

“A story has its purpose and its path. It must be told correctly for it to be understood.”
Marcus Sedgwick

“There's always a third choice in life. Even if you think you're stuck between two impossible choices, there's always a third way. You just have to look for it.”
Marcus Sedgwick, Revolver
