Seanan McGuire

Seanan McGuire writes things  It can be difficult to make her stop, although she’s easily distracted by swamps, corn fields, and traveling carnivals.  She was once lost on a carnival midway for six hours, only to be found happily operating the Ferris wheel.  Her books have been translated all over the world, and she has been the recipient of the Alex, Campbell, Hugo, and Nebula Awards.  Sometimes she remembers to tell people this.  Because one name is never enough, she is also Mira Grant.
