Isabel Bandeira grew up surrounded by trees and lakes in Southern New Jersey, right on the edge of the Pine Barrens. Her summers were always spent in Portugal, where the cathedrals, castles, and ancient tombs only fed her fairy tale obsession. Between all those influences and her serious glitter addiction, it wasn’t a surprise when she started writing stories of her own.

Isabel lives in New Jersey with her little black cat, too many books, and a closetful of vintage hats. She is represented by Carrie Howland of Donadio & Olson. BOOKISHLY EVER AFTER is her d

I can't say who is book 3's main character yet, BUT, every book theme: Bookish, Dramatic, Practical, mirrors the main character's most dominant personality trait, sooooooo.... *blinks coyly at the camera*(less)

Hi Kaitee!
It is a coincidence! I wish I could say it was planned--there are a few things in Bookishly that hint at Dramatically, but that wasn't one of them. Genevieve in Dramatically was a nod at a side character in Amy Plum's Revenants series, who also happens to be an immortal, just not the same kind as the one in Phoebe's "book." The camper names, on the other hand, were courtesy of a list of top baby names from their year of birth. Pretty names were very trendy that year!(less)

“I'm supposed to push a loose strand of hair out of your face, then let my hand linger on your cheek, or isn't that how, like, every other kissing scene in those books you read goes?" He gently tucked that piece of hair behind my ear and let his fingers slide down to tilt my chin up until my eyes met his. "Well?”
