About The Author

Marissa Meyer

Marissa Meyer lives in Tacoma, Washington, (home of Almond Roca and Stadium High School, which was made famous when Heath Ledger danced down the stadium steps in 10 Things I Hate About You) with her husband and three cats.

Marissa fell in love with books as a child, devouring such classics as The Chronicles of Narnia, The Lord of the Rings, and Goosebumps. She’s a fan of most things geeky (Sailor Moon, Firefly, color-coordinating her bookshelf . . .), and has been in love with fairy tales since she was given a small book of them when she was a child. She immersed herself in young adult literature as a teen and has yet to grow out of it.

She may or may not be a cyborg.
Cinder is her first novel.

Q: Which of your characters is most like you?

A: “I wish I could say that I’m clever and mechanically-minded like Cinder, but no—I can’t fix anything. I’m much more like Cress, who makes a brief cameo in CINDER and then takes a more starring role in the third book. She’s a romantic and a daydreamer and maybe a little on the naive side—things that could be said about me too—although she does find courage when it’s needed most. I think we’d all like to believe we’d have that same inner strength if we ever needed it.”

Where's the next book?!…

Book #2 in Lunar Chronicles Series
By Marissa Meyer

I need to give a very big thanks to Marissa for this wonderful story, as it made my ‘sick in bed’ day not only bearable, but quite great considering the situation… You really can’t imagine the immensity of addictiveness that comes with this story… I’d give a cyborg foot to have the next book now, LOL!…

Book #1 in Lunar Chronicles Series
By Marissa Meyer

Do you believe in love at first.. read? From time to time I like to read a fairytale – about princes (on white horses) and princesses (in their beautiful castles) and lost slippers and magical kisses that lead to happy endings. But don’t be fooled, as this is no fairytale.. Still this is one of the most…
