Bio

Melissa Marr, a former literature teacher who lives in Virginia, is the author of young adult fantasy novels. Her first, the New York Times bestseller Wicked Lovely, was published in 2007. It was followed by Ink Exchange, Fragile Eternity, Radiant Shadows, Darkest Mercy, Stopping Time and Old Habits.

Her Faery Tales & Nightmares is a collection of stories for young people. A manga series also is set in Marr's Wicked Lovely fantasy world.

Marr's first book for adult readers was Graveminder, which Publishers Weekly called "a quirky dark fantasy" about fate, free will and zombies. Marr also co-edited her first anthology Enthralled, published the e-book Lovestruck and published her non-series young adult novel, Carnival of Souls.

Marr teamed up with fellow young adult author Kelley Armstrong to edit Shards and Ashes, a collection of dystopian stories publishing in February 2013. The duo also collaborated on a trilogy called The Blackwell Pages. The first title in the trilogy, Loki’s Wolves, is expected in Spring 2013.

Marr, who is married and has a daughter, says her favorite authors include William Faulkner, poet Christina Rossetti and novelist and poet Neil Gaiman. For fans who want to read more about faery lore, she recommends Welsh and Celtic folklore, The Lion and the Unicorn and Marvels and Tales as a starting point.
