Meet the Author

Meg Cabot was born in Bloomington, Indiana. In addition to her adult contemporary fiction, she is the author of the bestselling young adult fiction series, The Princess Diaries. More than 25 million copies of her novels for children and adults have sold worldwide. Meg lives in Key West, Florida, with her husband.

Biography

Meg Cabot knows that one of the best cures for feeling gawky and conspicuous is reading about someone who sticks out even more than you do. Her books for young adults invariably feature girls who have extraordinary powers that carry extraordinary burdens. Cabot's Princess Diaries series offers up the secret thoughts of Mia Thermopolis, who discovers at age 14 that she is actually the princess of a small European country. This revelation adds significantly to her extant concerns about crushes, friendships, school, and other matters falling under adolescent scrutiny.

Cabot, a native of Indiana weaned on Judy Blume and Barbara Cartland, was already a successful romance novelist (as Patricia Cabot) before she began writing for young adults; her alter-alter ego, Jenny Carroll, began a new series shortly after The Princess Diaries debuted. The Carroll books are divided between the Mediator series, starring a girl who can communicate with restless ghosts; and the 1-800-WHERE-R-YOU books, in which a girl struck by lightning acquires the ability to locate missing people.

Cabot writes her books in a conspiratorial, first-person style that resonates with her readers. She has obviously kept a grip on the vernacular and the key issues of adolescence; but what makes her books so irresistible is the mixing of the mundane with the fantastic. After all, who wouldn't like to wake up and be a princess all of a sudden, or a seer? Cabot takes such offhand notions and roots them firmly in the details of average, middle-class American life. She has also tiptoed into mystery and paranormal suspense with other YA novels and series installments.

Cabot continues to write adult novels under various permutations of her given name (Meggin Patricia Cabot): from 19th-century historical romances to contemporary chick lit. And, as with her books for teens, these romances have earned praise for their lighthearted humor and well drawn characters.

Good To Know

Some interesting outtakes from our interview with Cabot:

"I am left handed."

"I hate tomatoes of any kind."

"I really wanted to be veterinarian, but I got a 410 on my math SATs."

"Writing used to be my hobby, but now that it's my job, I have no hobby -- except watching TV and laying around the pool reading US Weekly. I have tried many hobbies, such as knitting, Pilates, ballet, yoga, and guitar, but none of them have taken. So I guess I'm stuck with no hobby.

Read an Excerpt

Chapter One

London, 1810

"Oh, Nicky." The Honorable Miss Eleanor Sheridan sighed. "I would give anything to be an orphan, like you. You are so lucky."

Miss Nicola Sparks, far from taking offense at her friend's remark, looked thoughtfully at her own reflection in the great gilt-framed mirror before them.

"Aren't I, though?" she agreed.

Eleanor's mother let out an indignant harrumph. "Well, I like that!" the Lady Sheridan said as she handed a pile of Eleanor's undergarments to the girl's French maid to pack. "I'm terribly sorry your father and I have been so unobliging, Eleanor, in not perishing in a more timely manner."

Eleanor, who stood behind Nicola at the dressing table, examining her chestnut brown curls in the mirror with the same critical eye Nicola was applying to her glossy black ones, rolled her eyes.

"Oh, don't be tiresome, Mama," Eleanor said. "You know I don't wish you and Papa dead. It's only that lucky Nicola gets to pick from a horde of invitations where she'll go now that school's finished, while I have no choice in the matter at all. I've got to spend the rest of my life -- until I'm married, in any case -- with you and Papa and wretched Nat and Phil."

"I can arrange for you to spend the rest of your life with your great-aunts in Surrey," Lady Sheridan pointed out dryly, "if our household is so offensive to you. I am sure they would love to have you."

Eleanor's hazel eyes widened, and she spun from the dressing table to face her mother. "Surrey!" she burst out. "What in heaven's name would I do in Surrey?"

"I'm sure I can't say." Lady Sheridan closed the first of herdaughter's many trunks, then moved to the second. "But I can promise you'll find out if you don't start showing a little more sense. Nicola, lucky to be an orphan, indeed!"

Nicola, roused by this remark from an examination of her new, upswept coiffure -- the first she'd ever been allowed by Martine, her own very strict French maid, who did not believe it was proper for girls younger than sixteen to wear their hair up -- turned around on the tasseled stool upon which she sat, and said to her friend's mother with some gravity, "But I am lucky, Lady Sheridan. I mean, it isn't as if I ever actually knew my parents, so you see, I cannot miss them. They died a few months after I was born. And though their deaths were tragic, at least they perished together. . . ."

"So romantic," Eleanor said with a sigh.

"I hope that when I die, it is like Nicky's parents did, drowning in the river Arno after a sudden storm."

"And though Father hadn't any money to speak of," Nicola went on calmly, as if Eleanor hadn't spoken, "he did leave me the abbey, which provides me with some income -- not much, of course, but enough for a maid and school and new lace for a bonnet now and then, anyway."

Nicola turned back toward her reflection, which, though by no means the prettiest one at Madame Vieuxvincent's Seminary for Young Ladies -- Eleanor surely had the distinction of being the most beautiful girl at school -- no one, with the exception perhaps of Nicola herself, would dispute was anything but pleasing. Nicola found the fact that her nose bore traces of a powdering of freckles, left over from an injudicious river expedition the summer before with neither hat nor parasol, a dreadful shortcoming.

Still, freckles notwithstanding, she was forced to admit, "So really, Lady Sheridan, Eleanor is right. I am lucky. At least I have been, up until now. What shall happen to me next . . ." Nicola bit her lower lip, and watched in themirror as it turned a deep scarlet. Rouge was strictly forbidden at the school -- as, unfortunately for Nicola's freckles, was powder -- and so the girls were forced to resort to pinches and bites if they hoped to achieve the effect of blooming health, though Nicola, with her ivory complexion and ebony lashes and hair, usually managed quite well without such tricks. "I haven't the slightest idea. I suppose now that I'm finished with my schooling, I shall be blown about by life, like a thistle in the wind."

"Well, if you should ever tire of being a thistle," Lady Sheridan said, shaking out one of her daughter's sadly crumpled shawls before handing it to Eleanor's maid, Mirabelle, to press between sheets of tissue, then fold into the trunk before them, “you are always welcome to stay with us, Nicola, for as long as you like."

"As if she would want to," Eleanor cried, turning away from the sun-filled window she'd gone to stand before. "Why, Nicky's had invitations to come and live with some of the richest girls at school! Sophia Dunleavy's asked her. Oh, and Charlotte Murphy. Even Lady Honoria Bartholomew's asked her. Her parents have a town house on Park Lane, and Lady Honoria's got her own curricle . . . not to mention an entire wardrobe copied straight from the fashion plates of La Belle Assemblée, just for her first season out. And her father's an earl -- the Earl of Farelly -- and not a measly viscount, like Papa."

"Good Lord." But Lady Sheridan was not, as one might have thought, commenting on the grandness of Lady Honoria Bartholomew's lineage. "I can't imagine what Lady Farelly could be thinking, inviting a girl like Nicola to stay during her own daughter's first season out. The woman must be mad...

    Nicola and the Viscount

    I am not going to lie, this was my least favorite of the Avon True Romances, but it was still a good book. Its largest flaw is that the story is nearly identical to that of Victoria and the Rogue. I liked Victoria and the Rogue better because in that one the two got to spend more time together and share more.. intimate moments than in Nicola and the Viscount. In Nicola, they don't confess their love until the very, very end. i hate it when that happens. But despite its many flaws, Nicola and the Viscount is still a very good book. Read it if you have a chance, but don't put it on your priority list.

    Cover ¿ The cover of this edition is not anything particularly e

    Cover – The cover of this edition is not anything particularly eye catching. I do appreciate the continuity of the background scenery onto the back cover. This cover is made mainly of pastels so nothing stands out to me except for the author’s name. I do however like the text and font on this cover, as it is shiny and contrasts nicely with the backdrop image. I do not think that this book cover however would appeal to the audience reading this novel. I personally would not pick up this book but I adore Meg Cabot so naturally I recognized the author, ultimately leading to my purchase.
    Initial Thought/Predictions – I have already read the companion novel Victoria and the Rogue and thought it was okay, I will probably rate this a four out of five star book. I love the character interaction and gender dynamic that usually occurs in historical romance.
    Summary – Nicola and the Viscount is a historical romance by Meg Cabot. Set in the 1810 it follows Nicola Sparks and her first year out in society. Nicola thinks she has fallen for Lord Sebastian but is he honestly who she thinks he is? With the accusations from the handsome Nathaniel Sheridan, Nicola begins unraveling the truth.
    Review – To begin, I picked up this book and its companion novel, Victoria and the Rogue, from a used bookstore and couple months back. Meg Cabot is a favorite author of mine as I enjoy most of her work. As we begin the story and the male leads are introduced, I immediately took a disliking for Lord Sebastian, whereas I liked Nathaniel automatically. This is obviously what the author intended. As a whole this book is predictable and I was not shocked by any of the plot twists, and I expect most other readers will feel the same. Throughout the novel I found that I was not rooting for Nicola but for Nathaniel and hers relationship. Nicola as well as many other female characters were hard to like and grow attached to. I also got aggravated by the period vernacular, as at times it came across as very forced. Although in contrast at certain points it was well done. The last point that stood out to me was Nicola’s insistence on referring to Lord Sebastian as “the God”. I find this to e childish and somewhat elementary. It also became confusing because Nicola had nicknames for practically everybody. But on a better note. Nathaniel had great character development as did some of the other characters with the exception of Nicola. Nicola remained the same and failed to grow from any of her experience through the novel until the last three pages, in which she became a completely different person. With that said, I did guilty still enjoy the book. With both the critical standpoint and personal standpoint in mind I have given this novel a 3 ½ out of 5 star rating.

    A Great Read!

    This book takes place in the 1810's. My first thought was that I wouldn't be able to understand it and it would have too many big complicated words and stuff. But no. If you like weird twisted stories, then this is the book for you. I thought it would be this great "love story". It is but in a really weird way. It's like this huge love triangle (well square). Nicola is taught to be a "lady" and yet she manages to piss people off and get in a huge amount of trouble. Oh yeah... And there's hot guys. This book will keep you guessing till the very end! Must read!

    Cute and Funny!!!

    I really enjoyed Nicola and the Viscount by Meg Cabot. The style of writing is silly, but refreshing. If the characters seem under-drawn, the witty dialouge and interesting plot make up for it. Not quite as good as Meg Cabot's previous historical novel, but good.

    it pleasantly surprised me

    I feared, by the description on the back, that it was going to be too much like Princess Diaries, the fact that she falls in love with her best friend's brother. I enjoyed it a lot with it's twists, humor and romance

    Loved it

    I'm a fan of romance novels, however, I usually find it difficult to find a truly good one. This one wasn't simply a fluff book. It has a touch of romance thrown in with lots of humor and action. This book develops the characters well and makes you fall in love with them. Nicola is real, making her easy to relate to. It's a light, fun read without being mindless fluff.

    Very Well Written!!

    Nicola and the Viscount was a very fun read. There were so many dynamics in it that made it fun but also a little mysterious. Nicola reminds me a lot of myself, so it was easy to relate to her feelings in the book. I enjoyed it very much and I would recommend it to anyone that enjoys a good read!!!

    Nicola and the Viscount- A Must-Read!

    Tired of those boring old English books that constantly talk of nothing but silly old gossip then does Meg Cabot have the book for you! This book is historical with a nice amount of vocabulary but it is so good! A true romance with an action-packed mystery! I thought that after Nicky and Lord Sebastian broke up that the book would end happy ever after with Nicky marrying Nat but boy was I wrong! Anyways you will love this book!

    I really liked this book its the 7th avon true romance i have read and its one of my favorites. I usually don't like it when the ending is when they 'confess their love' but Meg Cabot makes it worth the wait.

    Totally AWESOME!!! I loved the way that Meg Cabot made it seem that the viscount was the right love for Nicola but the ending was so surprising and better than i thought it would ever be! i never would have expected that the viscount was a user and that Nicola falls in love with someone she's learned to hate! i would give this book infinite stars if i could but alas i can only give five. I loved this book so much and i would recommend this book to anyone!!!!!

    Best Book EVER! 1,00000,00000,0000 Stars!

    OH MY GOD! I love this book! It's so EXCELLENT! By the way, did you know that it's actually based in Georgian times? Victoria came to the throne when she was 18 in about 1837. Anyway, yes. Sebastian is a total and utter BOUNDER! (Yes, I got that off Nat. He's totally right, though.) He's SO vain! Nicola is quite classic, actually. She's just graduated from Madame V's, and so is anxious to act like a proper lady. But Nathaniel Sheridan is the best character. He's like the Georgian male version of me! We both love reading, both are very smart (if I may say so myself, har-har), both have a sister, both have brown hair & hazel eyes, both are very tall, neither of us ugly (again, as I may say so myself, hee-hee), both hate poetry and Operah, both like plays, both can finish a thick book in an evening, both enjoy making dens out of chairs and 'Mother's' best table clothes, both mischevious, both love Maths & Science... Highly recommend this book to ANYBODY, as it is the BEST BOOK EVER!!!!! P.S. I love Nathaniel. I am SO jealous of Nicola.

    FINE PERFORMANCE OF THIS HAPPILY-EVER-AFTER

    Want a little romance in your life? Do you have a yen for happy-ever-afters? Then lend an ear to 'Nicola and the Viscount' as stunningly read by Amanda Root. Having shared the stage with such luminaries as Joan Plowright, Glenda Jackson and Ralph Fiennes, Root has an outstanding background. She's well known to BBC audiences and delivers a blockbuster performance in this reading of Nicola and the Viscount. Raised as an orphan, Nicola longs for love, true and lasting love. She believes she's found it with an incredibly good looking viscount, Lord Sebastian. Surely, she dreams he will soon propose. Well, her dream may come true but there are also clouds on the horizon in the form of hints from Nathaniel that her viscount might not be all that he appears or claims to be. Of course, Nicola is infuriated by such disparaging remarks, but she's also curious. You know what curiosity did to the cat - will it also kill Nicola's romance?

    Perfect Romance

    I thought it was sooo sweet, you knew it was going to work out somehow and when it did it was so nice. The characters act like real girls do, worried about what they look like and all that.
