About the Author
Shanna Swendson earned a journalism degree from the University of Texas and used to work in public relations but decided it was more fun to make up the people she wrote about, so now she's a full-time novelist. She's the author of the contemporary fantasy Enchanted, Inc. series and Fairy Tale series and the young adult steampunk fantasy Rebel Mechanics, which was named one of VOYA's best science fiction, fantasy, and horror titles of the year and which has been included on the Lone Star Reading List by the Texas Library Association. She's also contributed essays to a number of books on pop culture topics. She's a frequent guest at writing conferences and science fiction conventions, where she gets to talk about books and television and consider it "work." When she's not writing, she's usually discussing books and television on the Internet, singing in or directing choirs, knitting, taking ballet classes, or attempting to learn Italian cooking. She lives in Irving, Texas, with several hardy houseplants and too many books to fit on the shelves.
