Reviews from Goodreads

Seanan McGuire; read by Cynthia Hopkins

SEANAN McGUIRE is the author of the Wayward Children series, beginning with the Hugo, Nebula, Alex, and Locus Award-winning Every Heart a Doorway, the October Daye urban fantasy series, the InCryptid series, and other works. She also writes darker fiction as Mira Grant. Seanan lives in Seattle with her cats, a vast collection of creepy dolls, horror movies, and sufficient books to qualify her as a fire hazard. She was the winner of the 2010 John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer, and in 2013 she became the first person ever to appear five times on the same Hugo ballot.
