Stephanie Burgis

Fantasy writer, history addict

I'm an American-born writer who lives in Wales with my husband, fellow writer psamphire, our two young sons (known here as "Mr Darcy" and "Toddler X") and our sweet old border collie mix, Maya. My trilogy of Regency-era fantasy novels for kids was published as the Kat, Incorrigible series in North America and The Unladylike Adventures of Kat Stephenson in the UK. My next book will be an adult historical fantasy novel, Masks and Shadows, which will be published by Pyr Books in April 2016, followed by Congress of Secrets in November 2016, and then a new MG fantasy series that will begin with The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart (published by Bloomsbury in the UK and US).

Book One of the Kat, Incorrigible series was published as Kat, Incorrigible in the US and A Most Improper Magick in the UK, where it won the Waverton Good Read Children's Award for best début children's novel by a British author.

My second book was published as Renegade Magic in the US and A Tangle of Magicks in the UK.

My third book was published on October 1, 2012 in the UK as A Reckless Magick, and on April 2, 2013 in America as Stolen Magic.

A final, linked YA romance novella , Courting Magic - Kat at eighteen, fighting magical crime and falling in love! - was published as an ebook (and as a printable PDF file) on August 12, 2014.

I've also had over 30 short stories for teens and adults published in a variety of magazines and anthologies.

You can also read the story of how writing the Kat trilogy quite literally saved me during the worst time of my life.
