The marvellous Maggie Stiefvater, author of YA paranormal romances that transcend the genre with their literary style and complexity, is appearing for three talks in the UK soon–in London, Manchester, and Glasgow. Stiefvater is the author of the excellent Wolves of Mercy Falls werewolf novels, which both Kaja Franck and I have forthcoming chapters on. Shiver, the first book of this series, is a core text on Sam’s Generation Dead YA Gothic undergraduate module. She has also written The Scorpio Races (involving kelpies) and two brilliant dark faerie romances, Ballad and Lament. These talks are to promote the magical Raven Boys series.
