Librarian note: AKA Jenny Carroll (1-800-Where-R-You series), AKA Patricia Cabot (historical romance novels).

Meg Cabot was born on February 1, 1967, during the Chinese astrological year of the Fire Horse, a notoriously unlucky sign. Fortunately she grew up in Bloomington, Indiana, where few people were aware of the stigma of being a fire horse -- at least until Meg became a teenager, when she flunked freshman Algebra twice, then decided to cut her own bangs. After six years as an undergrad at Indiana University, Meg moved to New York City (in the middle of a sanitation worker strike) to pursue a career as an illustrator, at which she failed miserably, forcing her to turn to her favorite hobby--writing novels--for emotional succor. She worke

Thank you so much to everyone who helped make the launch of Enchanted to Meet You such a success!

You’ve all kept the staff at Books and Books in Key West busy with signed/personalized orders. I love that so many of you are supporting indies!

And I love that so many of you are supporting witchy romance! I love witches and witchy media all year round, not just during the Spooky Season–and I love that

message 40: by mj

mj I just finished Royal Wedding and absolutely loved it! I'm not ready to let go of Mia yet. Will you be writing anymore books related to the Princess Diaries series?

(I'm so glad Remembrance is available. I'm still reeling from finishing Royal Wedding)

Shayla Hi Meg!! Thank you so much for accepting my friend request! :) The Princess Diaries really started my love for reading so thank you so much for writing them!! Mia is my spirit animal!

message 38: by Cat

Cat SamLos Hi Meg! I guess I'm a late bloomer when it comes to your books but I'm almost done with all of your collections.. I'm currently reading the Mediator Series. I love it though I don't know why you stopped calling the three stepbrothers Snow White nicknames in the last two books. I really find it funny every time Suze would accidentally call David - Doc or Jake - Sleepy. Anyway, I'm halfway with Twilight and I have to stop because I don't want it to end. Should have read it more slowly I guess. More power!
