About this author

At the age of sixteen, Michelle Hodkin lost the rights to her soul in a poker game with pirates just south of Natchez. Shortly thereafter, she joined an acting troupe and traveled the world performing feats of wonder and mischief. She has been seen on stages nationwide and earned rave reviews for her one woman performance of Titus Andronicus before writing the New York Times bestselling Mara Dyer Trilogy. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and its sequel, The Evolution of Mara Dyer are available now, and the third book in the trilogy, The Retribution of Mara Dyer, hits shelves on November 4th, 2014. Michelle lives with her three rescued pets and may or may not be a reliable narrator of her own life.

I love this question.

I love Noah's shamelessness. That he isn't embarrassed by anything--not his history, not his obsession with Mara, not the reasons behind it. He knows how flawed he is and doesn't really care--he never wanted to be perfect, so he doesn't bother pretending to be.

And I love Mara's ferocious loyalty. She will do anything--maim, murder, whatever--to protect the people she loves. She'll defend first and apologize later (or not at all).(less)

I will be in Atlanta! At the Decatur Book Festival and Dragon*Con! And I am excited beyond reason. I've been to Decatur once before, before my book even came out, as a panting fangirl in a horde of panting fangirls just excited to be able to listen to authors I admired say smart things on panels. I expect this year to be no different, except for the fact that I am on a panel myself. I can't pro... Read more of this blog post »

Kellie Hi Michelle! Thank you for accepting my friend request. Your books are always so exciting. I cannot wait to read Book 3 :)


Danielle Hi Michelle, thank you so much for accepting my friend request. The Mara Dyer Trilogy is one of my most favorite book series in the world. You're actually one of my inspirations to become a writer one day, hopefully! The way you wrote Mara Dyer inspired me in ways words can not comprehend. I'm just sad to see it end! Anyway, thanks again for accepting my friend request, it means so much, thanks! P.S. If I may ask, how did you come up with Mara Dyer in the first place?

Kat I'm so excited to see you! See you on January! <3

Olivia Hi Michelle, thanks so much for accepting my friend request!! Your books are without a doubt some of the best I've ever read oh wow please don't ever stop writing! <3 I'm like preparing myself mentally for retribution because I can only imagine the madness in that book! I don't want it to end!! I love Mara and Noah so much :)) Love from good ol New Zealand <3 x


message 69: by Karla

Karla Ortiz Hi Michelle,thank you so much for accepting my friendship request,I totally love the Mara Dyer Trilogy, it's definitely one of my favorites series, I can't wait for the final book to come out, I am really exited but I don't want it to end.
I have so many questions, Do you hear music while you were writing?, What was your inspiration to the Mara Dyer Trilogy?, Do you have any plans to write another story?.
I'm really driving crazy for the wait, I recommended my friends to read Mara Dyer and now they want to kill me because they are going to have to wait to the final book to come out.
I hope you keep writing.
LOVE FROM MEXICO <3 !

I've always liked reading a lot but The Unbecoming Of Mara Dyer got me back into reading much more. I loved the plot, adored the characters and the writing is outstanding! I love Mara's voice. And can I just say that I need Noah in my life haha? Needless to say I already preordered my copy of Retribution and I'm so excited that you're going to be signing all preorders. Can't wait!
