When Maria V. Snyder was younger, she aspired to be a storm chaser in the American Midwest so she attended Pennsylvania State University and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology. Much to her chagrin, forecasting the weather wasn’t in her skill set so she spent a number of years as an environmental meteorologist, which is not exciting...at all. Bored at work and needing a creative outlet, she started writing fantasy and science fiction stories. Over twenty novels and numerous short stories later, Maria’s learned a thing or three about writing. She’s been on the New York Times bestseller list, won a dozen awards, and has earned her Masters of Arts degree in Writing from Seton Hill University, where she is now a faculty member. H ...more

I chose to use 3rd for Valek and Janco for a couple reasons. One - I think staying in first person between characters is really difficult to do well (and without jarring the reader) - I've read a few books that stay in first and I didn't like them. Two - I'm not ready to do a first person male POV - I'm not male and I don't know if I can "pull it off." I'd like to practice more before attempting it in one of my novels. Three - I liked the bit of mystery 3rd person keeps. I read a book where the main male protagonist was hard to read and he was mysterious and seemed dangerous, but then in a follow-up book the writer wrote this character in first person and that sense of mystery disappeared and it ruined it for me! So I wanted Valek to keep a bit of that mystery (don't know if I pulled it off or not). So that's why :).(less)

Maria V. Snyder is starting Shadow Study: Yes, I know I'm reading my own book. Actually re-reading it because I've forgotten many of the little details of what happened. I'm planning to write a bunch of new short stories with these characters and I needed to get back into their heads and world before I can write them.

If you haven't read this one - read ICE STUDY - it's a short story that's a prequal to this book. You can find it for free on my website.

“Yelena, you've driven me crazy. You've caused me considerable trouble and I've contemplated ending your life twice since I've known you." Valek's warm breath in my ear sent a shiver down my spine.

"But you’ve slipped under my skin, invaded my blood and seized my heart.”

“That sounds more like a poison than a person,” was all I could say. His confession had both shocked and thrilled me.

“Exactly,” Valek replied. “You have poisoned me.”

“Everyone makes choices in life. Some bad, some good. It's called living, and if you want to bow out, then go right ahead. But don't do it halfway. Don't linger in whiner's limbo.”

“Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration.”
Thomas A. Edison

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
Calvin Coolidge

“Nothing says you care for me better than offering to torture my enemies."

He grinned. "No sense doing things halfhearted. And to think, some girls have to endure listening to poetry.”

'I’m serious,' Belen said.

Kerrick gave him a tight smile. 'You mean I'm not omnipotent?'
'You're not even semi-potent.'
'Is that even a word?' Kerrick asked.
'He probably means you're impotent,' I offered.”

TaleTerror Loving the Australian covers of your Healer series! (Trying to get my hands on the re-released Touch of Power cover) Just as I still love the Study series covers! Can not wait until Taste of Death, how far along are you writing that?? And when are you going to start writing book 4, for the Study series?! I'm not the kind of girl to flip out and cry for the things I love but there was definitely some skipping around the house with a big smile on my face when i read your newsletter with that tid bit of news :)


Snuggles  with Rainbows Thanks for accepting my request! I just read Poison Study and I am speechless.

I'm honored to be your favorite author. And I'm happy to hear my books stand up under multiple readings. Back when I started, I just hoped people would read and finish my book - I never considered they would re-read it! Good thing, or I would have been really nervous :)

Deedee I <33 you! You are my favorite author. I really love Healer Series! Don't even get me started on Study series, I can't express how much I love that series. I have been rereading it every month. I love your writing style and how you portray the characters. I know you spend a lot of time on them because they come out to be flawless.


Rainenoelle Hi Maria,

I just wanted to express to you what an impact your Study series has made on me. From the first time I read Poison Study (just last week), I knew from that point on you shot up to the top spot as my favorite author. I seriously have not been so obsessed with a series since reading Harry Potter back when it first came out. I can't wait to read your other books!

Your talented writing has totally "poisoned" me!

Keep those great books coming

You're welcome...I think ;> I had a flashback to the book Misery by Stephen King - and the movie was very scary as well! I know you're kidding and I'm glad to hear that you've enjoyed my books so much. Have you read the Insider books yet? Inside Out and Outside In, you might like them as well and perhaps Trella would be added to your list of heroes :)

You are the most amazing author... I could just kidnap you and force you to write stories just for me... Jokes, but you really are. The Study series I have read over and over, and A Touch Of Power is just a well written!!

Yelena, Avry and Opal are my heroes. If only they were real...

Thanks for accepting my friend request! I can't wait for the next story in the healer series!!! <3

(P.S. I'm not as mad as I sound in this...)
