      • bioText:

        In suburban Kansas City, I began as a child poet and grew into a journalist. I was the editor of my junior-high and high-school newspapers. I went on to study journalism at the University of Kansas and law at the University of Michigan Law School. Along the way, I had a ton of jobs. I worked as a popcorn popper at a movie theater, a cashier at a gas station, a waitress at a Mexican restaurant, a switchboard operator for a bank, a telemarketer, and a receptionist for a small law firm. I served as a reporting intern for various small-town papers and the Dallas Morning News as well as a marketing intern for a greeting-card company in Kansas City, an oil company in Oklahoma, and a non-profit organization in Topeka. I also held summer/semester clerkships at a judge's office in Kansas, a small women's-rights firm in Michigan, and a legal aid in Hawaii.

        After graduation I moved to Chicago, where I worked briefly in the law office of the Department of Health and Human Services. But after six months (and a long talk with some ducks in Lake Michigan), I quit my day job to write full time. I eventually relocated and settled in Austin, where I live with my husband and sometimes co-author, Greg Leitich Smith, and four dedicated writer cats.


        I love to literally plunge into my fictional world.

        For Tantalize, I went house shopping for my characters, confessed my intentions to the realtors, and walked away with floor plans and photos. At the local coffee shop, I tapped hirsute folks on the shoulder and asked if I could take pictures of them to use as models for shape-shifters. I also made a point to dine at every Italian restaurant in Austin.

        For the New York Times best-selling novel Eternal, I walked every Chicago street that my characters did, trying to see the landscape anew through their eyes. I made notes on the sounds, the smells, the chill in the air. The ink in my pen froze on Navy Pier, and I ended up cutting that scene anyway.

        What I love most about being a young adult author is hearing from young adult readers! I'm happy to answer questions about my novels and to recommend additional books by other authors.

        Three Things You Might Not Know About Me:

        1. I live in a haunted house.

        2. I saw Star Wars: A New Hope (back when it was just called Star Wars) 370-plus times in the theater.

        3. My phobias are: heights, enclosed spaces, children under three, flying monkeys, and lettuce. (It's not the lettuce itself; it's what may be lurking inside the lettuce.)

fullDescription

With a wink and a nod to Bram Stoker, New York Times best-selling author Cynthia Leitich Smith unites the casts of Tantalize and Eternal in a delicious dark fantasy her fans will devour.

(Ages 14 & Up)

"You'll try to fight it. But you'll only be fighting your true self. It's done. It's destined. In time, you'll come to accept it." He pulled back his sleeve to reveal two dress watches. "In time, you'll come to me."

Quincie P. Morris, teen restaurateuse and neophyte vampire, is in the fight of her life — or undeath. Even as she adjusts to her new appetites, she must clear her best friend and true love, the hybrid werewolf Kieren, of murder charges; thwart the apocalyptic ambitions of Bradley Sanguini, the seductive vampire-chef who "blessed" her; and keep her dead parents' restaurant up and running. She hires a more homespun chef and adds the preternaturally beautiful Zachary to her wait staff. But with hundreds of new vampires on the rise and Bradley off assuming the powers of Dracula Prime, Zachary soon reveals his true nature — and a flaming sword — and they hit the road to staunch the bloodshed before it's too late. Even if they save the world, will there be time left to salvage Quincie's soul?
