Additionally, the former University of California, Berkeley student loves horror movies, comic books, reality TV, and musical theater. The voracious reader counts names like Terry Pratchett, Stephen King, and Tanya Huff among her favorite writers.

Seanan was a creative child. She thinks she lost some of the magic over the years because of all the constraints adulthood placed on her. As a child, she would enact elaborate adventures with her friends.

The author would also fill her notebooks with descriptions of the fictional worlds in which the adventures took place, providing backstories for the characters, explaining the politics, and more.

By the time she was seven, the author had transitioned to essays, songs, and short stories. Because computers did not exist, Seanan did most of her writing on an electric typewriter. The device made too much noise, and the author made things worse by choosing to write at 3 in the morning.

At the tender age of 11, Seanan’s mother blew the author’s mind when the woman bought ‘The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction.’ This was a twenty-year run. She found it at the flea market.

Seanan remembers sitting under her favorite tree and reading the volume’s numerous stories during the summer. She couldn’t wait to grow up and replicate the success of her favorite authors.

At the time, she had no idea that an incident at Golden Gate Park would inspire her to write ‘Rosemary and Rue.’ The author was having a lovely time with her friends when she reached the top of the Moon Bridge and found that she couldn’t move.

Her friends tried to coax her down, but their words couldn’t reach her. Seanan was ready to spend the rest of her days on the Moon Bridge. But then she looked down, noticed the koi in the water, and an interesting line came to her.

The line stuck with her, and she kept pondering it. Finally, Seanan had to get down. The desire to go home and write the story whirling in her imagination overcame the author’s fear.

Initially, she wrote the short story out of curiosity. And once it was done, she was more than happy to discard it before moving on with her life. But one of the friends that read the short story started nagging her.

She wanted Seanan to write a novel, and the author finally acquiesced, turning the short story into a book which, in turn, morphed into a full-fledged series.

Seanan McGuire Awards

Seanan has won a Nebula Award. She has also received John W. Campbell and Hugo Award nominations.

Best Seanan McGuire Books

The author has written novels under the ‘Mira Grant’ and ‘A. Deborah Baker’ pen names. Seanan’s best books include:

Every Heart A Doorway: Eleanor West helps lost children. People send kids to her home because they are troubled. Eleanor’s charges claim that they discovered new worlds, realms beyond the imagining of rational minds, places where magic is real. But when they return, no one believes them.

Eleanor is different. She isn’t lying when she tells the parents that she can help their children. However, those parents don’t realize that Eleanor has visited those magical realms.

She knows they exist. More importantly, she understands the sadness that follows when one returns to the real world. Eleanor’s sanctuary creates space that allows kids to express themselves truthfully because they know that Eleanor believes them.

Down Among The Sticks And Bones: Jack and Jill were twins, but the siblings couldn’t have been more different. Jacqueline’s mother wanted a princess, and that is what she had created. Jack was polite, quiet, and well dressed. She understood the purpose her mother’s strict upbringing served.

Jillian’s father wanted a boy. But Jill was a suitable alternative. The tom-boy was adventurous. Like Jack, she never questioned her father’s determination to mold her into the perfect daughter.

But then the girls turned 12, and everything changed. They walked down a staircase and discovered an impossible world filled with magic and mayhem.

This dark and eerie fairytale is the second book in the Wayward Children series.
