Laini Taylor

“Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there’s no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic.”  from Daughter of Smoke and Bone

Laini writes books for, in her own words, “youngish people, but they can also be read and enjoyed by oldish people, aka grown-ups. You know grown-ups? They tend to be a little bigger and hairier than kids. But not always.”
She lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband, illustrator Jim Di Bartolo, and their daughter.
