Windy Con Author Guest of Honor: Seanan McGuire


Seanan, also known as Mira Grant, is the author of the October Daye series of urban fantasies, the first seven of which have been purchased by DAW Books; the InCryptid series of urban fantasies, the first two of which have been purchased by DAW Books; and the Newsflesh trilogy, published by Orbit under the pseudonym "Mira Grant."

She's working on several other books, just to make sure she never runs out of things to edit. Her short fiction has appeared in multiple anthologies, and she was a 2010 Universe Author for The Edge of Propinquity.

In her spare time, Seanan writes and records original music. She has three CDs currently available. She is also a cartoonist, and draws an irregularly posted autobiographical web comic, "With Friends Like These...", as well as creating a truly ridiculous number of art cards.

Seanan was the winner of the 2010 John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer, and her novel Feed was named as one of Publishers Weekly's Best Books of 2010.

She is so amazing that she has Two web sites! One as Seanan McGuire and one as Mira Grant. Make sure you check them both out!
