About The Author

Victoria Schwab

Victoria is the product of a British mother, a Beverly Hills father, and a southern upbringing. Because of this, she has been known to say “tom-ah-toes,” “like,” and “y’all.” She also tells stories. She loves fairy tales, and folklore, and stories that make her wonder if the world is really as it seems.

Her first YA novel, THE NEAR WITCH, a dark original fairy tale, debuted with Disney Hyperion in August 2011, and is now out in paperback. Her next YA novel, THE ARCHIVED, is the first book in a new supernatural series about a world where the dead are shelved like books, and it’s been in stores since January 2013, also with Disney Hyperion.

Victoria’s first adult novel, VICIOUS, about two brilliant and highly disturbed pre-med students who set out to generate their own superpowers and end up mortal enemies, is out from Tor.

Absolutely wonderful! Incredibly touching! “The Archived” tells a story of terrible loss – not necessary by the nature of it, but by the echoes…
