Makiia is the author of historical fiction and historical fantasy for young adults. She grew up on the Pacific Island of Guam (not too far from the equator), and has degrees in journalism and library science from the University of Oregon and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Her debut novel, A Death-Struck Year, was called a "powerful and disturbing reading experience" by Publishers Weekly. It was a finalist for Germany's top book prize for children, the Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis, as well as Japan's Sakura Medal, and was named an ABC Best Books for Children Selection by the American Booksellers Association.

Her second novel, Isle of Blood and Stone, will be available in Spring 2018.

Book cover's on the way, but in the meantime, Isle of Blood and Stone has a delightful new map! My daughter sketched the original back in the fifth grade, and this final version was created by the immensely talented Leo Hartas. Look! Sea monsters!

“What I would give right now, to feel nothing.”
Makiia Lucier, A Death-Struck Year

“I’m not afraid of these ghosts, Cleo. I have enough of my own to keep me company.”
Makiia Lucier, A Death-Struck Year

“The rain came before I'd gone a block. A few drops at first, and then a downpour. I didn't turn back. I tipped my face to the sky. Welcomed the coolness on my skin. In this world of mine, it was the rain, it was the rain alone, that made sense.”

“I know who I am; I know what I can and can't do. I know what I will and won't do. I know what I am capable of and I don't agree to do things that I don't think I can pull off.”
