New York Times best selling author Shannon Hale started writing books at age ten and never stopped, eventually earning an MFA in Creative Writing. After nineteen years of writing and dozens of rejections, she published THE GOOSE GIRL, the first in her award-winning BOOKS OF BAYERN series. Her standalone book for young readers, BOOK OF A THOUSAND DAYS, won a Cybils award. The Newbery Honor winner PRINCESS ACADEMY was followed by bestseller PRINCESS ACADEMY: PALACE OF STONE. She is writing a third in this series as well as the first three EVER AFTER HIGH novels. Her most recent young adult novel, DANGEROUS, is a superhero adventure.

Her books for the adult crowd are AUSTENLAND (now a major motion picture starring Keri Russell), MIDNIGHT IN AUSTENLAND, and THE ACTOR AND THE HOUSEWIFE. With her husband Dean, Shannon wrote two graphic novels for young readers: RAPUNZEL'S REVENGE, an Eisner nominee, and its acclaimed sequel, CALAMITY JACK, as well as an early chapter book series beginning with THE PRINCESS IN BLACK (fall 2014). Shannon spends her days corralling four young children near Salt Lake City, Utah.
