She lives in rural Virginia, USA, with her husband and their two young children.

Maggie Stiefvater on Maggie Stiefvater:
All of my life decisions have been based around my inability to be
gainfully employed. Talking to yourself, staring into space and coming
to work in your pyjamas are frowned upon when you're a waitress,
calligraphy instructor or technical editor (all of which I've tried),
but are highly prized traits in novelists, musicians and artists (I've
made my living as one of these since I was 22).
I now live an eccentric life in the middle of nowhere, Virginia, with my charmingly straight-laced husband, two small kids, two neurotic dogs, one criminally insane cat and a 1973 Camaro named Loki.
I'm an avid reader, an award-winning coloured pencil artist and play several musical instruments, including the Celtic harp, the piano and the bagpipes. I also make great cocktail party conversation.
The stunning companion novel to the bestselling and acclaimed Shiver, Linger and Forever trilogy is the book that every Maggie Stiefvater and paranormal romance fan has been waiting for!

But most importantly there will be love. And no one does love like Maggie. For all those new to Maggie Stiefvater's world then don't worry, Sinner can definitely still be read without having read the trilogy. A Message from Maggie Stiefvater “For me, finishing the Shiver trilogy was a bittersweet moment — I knew that I wouldn’t be returning to Mercy Falls once Sam and Grace’s story was over. But Cole and Isabel still lurked in the back of my mind. Both of them were only half-fixed at the end of the trilogy, and I wanted to know if they could be fixed the rest of the way.”

A ‘Piece of Passion’ from Scholastic Children’s Books Senior Fiction Editor Zoe Duncan:I have always felt privileged to work with Maggie Stiefvater. She is immensely talented and all her books have been absorbing, brilliant and completely impossible to put down. When I was first sent The Scorpio Races, I was so excited. Here was a brand new story that Maggie had put her soul into. I stayed up all night and I wasn’t disappointed. In fact, I was blown away. The Scorpio Races is exceptional. It’s exhilarating and special. It will make your heart race. In creating the savage water horses, the cappaill uisce (pronounced COPple Ooshka), Maggie has brought to life dangerous yet beautiful creatures. As they gallop along the beach you can smell the sea and hear the waves. You understand why the sand is soaked with blood. One of Maggie’s many talents is her ability to make you fall so completely for her characters. Her heroes in The Scorpio Races feel incredibly real. They are fascinating and complex. I wish I was half as brave as Puck. I wish everyone had Sean’s silent strength and honest goodness.The Scorpio Races is an adventure, a fantasy, a heart-wrenching ride, but more than anything it’s a love story. And no one writes love like Maggie. You can also hear from Maggie herself. Click here to read a very special letter from Maggie Stiefvater about her new book.

October 2009 Book of the Month. Julia Eccleshare's view... A touching and chilling love story with a difference, set in a small town that is haunted and terrified after a boy is killed by a pack of wolves. But Grace is drawn to the wolves despite their power and to one wolf in particular – the one with yellow eyes. And then Grace falls in love with a boy who also has yellow eyes. Is he her wolf? Grace has to use the power of her love to save the boy from becoming all wolf. Lovereading comment: Shiver is a haunting, breathtaking and original supernatural love story that will have you hooked from the very first page. Told with two narrative voices, we follow the inner thoughts and feelings of both Grace and Sam throughout their extraordinary romance, right to the chilling twist. Sam lives two lives; for a few precious months in the summer he is human whilst in the winter his home is the frozen woods. For Grace she is fascinated by the wolf pack and by one yellow-eyed wolf in particular, until that is she meets a yellow-eyed boy who is somehow very familiar. The quality of the writing makes this a novel that will stand out in the crowd. The author’s literary influences for Shiver were Crow Lake and The Time Traveller’s Wife ‘because they tell quiet, bittersweet love stories.’
