Maggie Stiefvater is kind of a phenomenon. She’s the author of many bestselling YA novels including the Shiver trilogy, The Scorpio Races, and the Books of Faerie. She’s also an incredibly talented musician of multiple instruments and an astonishing visual artist. Her latest series The Raven Boys debuts this week.
