Raised in the Midwest, Greer Macallister earned her MFA in creative writing from American University. Her debut novel THE MAGICIAN'S LIE was a USA Today bestseller, an Indie Next pick, and a Target Book Club selection. Her novels GIRL IN DISGUISE (“a rip-roaring, fast-paced treat to read” - Booklist) and WOMAN 99 (“a nail biter that makes you want to stand up and cheer” - Kate Quinn) were inspired by pioneering 19th-century private detective Kate Warne and fearless journalist Nellie Bly, respectively. Her new book, THE ARCTIC FURY, was named an Indie Next and Library Reads pick, an Amazon Best Book of the Month, and a spotlighted new release at PopSugar, Libro.fm, and Goodreads.

The life of a writer can be daunting on so many levels -- the writing itself, for one thing, and then the business of getting published and getting your book into the hands of readers. You need a tough skin and a willingness to keep tackling the hard tasks, the hard questions, even when you don't feel like it. And having fellow writers with you along the way -- a trusted beta reader, a critique group, an online forum -- makes the journey possible. Ups and downs are both better when you can share them.(less)

But I still wish her life were better documented. It would be great if more people knew about her, and the people whose stories are written down just have a natural advantage in history. Thanks for the great question! (less)

“Life is always better than death. Always. No exceptions.”
Greer Macallister, The Magician's Lie

“You want to set me free? Do it. You want to turn me in? You can do that too. You're the only one with the choice. And that bullet in your back doesn't mean you've got any less choice than you ever did. Live free of fear if you want to. We all carry something inside us that could kill us; yours just has a name. You want to change your life? Change it. You have no less of a right to be happy than the rest of us.”
Greer Macallister, The Magician's Lie

“I chose not to care. And if it scared me at first how easy it was to make myself feel differently about something by simply deciding it, I decided I could ignore that too.”
Greer Macallister, Girl in Disguise
