Biography

Stephanie Burgis grew up in East Lansing, Michigan, but now she lives in Wales with her husband (fellow writer and ebook cover designer Patrick Samphire), their two sons, and their crazy-sweet border collie mix. Her first historical fantasy novel for adults, MASKS AND SHADOWS, was published by Pyr Books in April 2016, and her second, CONGRESS OF SECRETS, will be published in November 2016. She is also the author of a trilogy of funny Regency-era fantasy novels for ages ten and up, published by Atheneum Books in the US and Templar Books in the UK, and a new MG series to be published in both countries by Bloomsbury, beginning with THE DRAGON WITH A CHOCOLATE HEART (2017).
