Seanan McGuire is an American author living and working in the Pacific Northwest, where she shares a rambling house with far too many cats and sufficient books to qualify her home as a library. When not writing, she plays far too much Overwatch, and is primarily a and Mercy main. Seanan's books have been released globally, and translated into well over a dozen languages. In 2013, she became the first person ever to appear five times on the same Hugo ballot. Seanan is very fond of corn mazes, haunted attractions, and wandering into swamps.
