Full Name: Victoria E. Schwab
Born: July 7, 1987


I am the product of a British mother, a Beverly Hills father, and a southern upbringing. Because of this, I have been known to say "tom-ah-toes", "like", and "y'all". I also suffer from a wicked case of wanderlust, made worse by the fact that wandering is a good way to stir up stories. When I'm not haunting Paris streets or trudging up English hillsides, I'm usually tucked in the corner of a coffee shop, dreaming up monsters.

My first YA novel, THE NEAR WITCH, a dark original fairy tale, debuted with Disney*Hyperion in August 2011, and is now out in paperback.

My next YA novel, THE ARCHIVED, is the first book in a new supernatural series about a world where the dead are shelved like books, and it hits stores January 2013, also with Disney*Hyperion.

My first adult novel, VICIOUS, about two brilliant and highly disturbed pre-med students who set out to generate their own superpowers and end up mortal enemies, is out in hardcover from Tor September 2013.

I have more books coming out in 2014, but I'll get to those later.

These days, when someone asks me what I do when I'm NOT writing, I just kind of laugh nervously. But in truth, on the odd occasion I'm not typing away, I'm probably baking cookies, or watching BBC shows, or wandering. (See how we came full circle, there?)
