Maggie Ann Martin hails from Des Moines, Iowa but moonlights as a New Yorker. She earned a BA in English and Journalism from the University of Iowa, the most welcoming literary community in the world. When she is not writing, you can find her binge watching TV shows or passionately fangirling over fictional characters on the Internet. Her two young adult novels, The Big F and To Be Honest are available now from Swoon Reads (Macmillan).

“You're the queen of pushing people away before they can say they like you. The queen of rejecting first so you can't be rejected.”
Maggie Ann Martin, To Be Honest

“It was like they sent out a beacon that screamed “I’m incredibly datable,” and I sent out a beacon that screamed, “Look at the two other options right next to me.”
Maggie Ann Martin, To Be Honest

“Because you don't give them a chance! You shut them down, talk about being great friends, and even talk about how you're going to be alone forever in front of them. That's not really an open invitation to ask someone out, is it?”
Maggie Ann Martin, To Be Honest

“Sometimes I feel that I am destined always to be offstage whenever the main action occurs. That God has made me the victim of some cosmic practical joke, by assigning me little more than a walk-on part in my own life. Or sometimes I feel that my role is simply to be a spectator to other people's stories, and always to wander away at the most important moment, drifiting into the kitchen to make a cup of tea just as the denouement unfolds.”
Jonathan Coe, The Rotters' Club

“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”
Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey

“You could rattle the stars," she whispered. "You could do anything, if only you dared. And deep down, you know it, too. That’s what scares you most.”
Sarah J. Maas, Throne of Glass

“Libraries were full of ideas—perhaps the most dangerous and powerful of all weapons.”
Sarah J. Maas, Throne of Glass
