About the Author

Kami Garcia, Margaret Stohl

Kami Garcia is a teacher and reading specialist with an MA in education, and leads book groups for children and teenagers.

Margaret Stohl has an MA in English and studied creative writing under poet George MacBeth at the University of East Anglia, Norwich.

They both live in Los Angeles, California, with their families.

Kami and Margaret talk about being a writing team and introduce their books.....

Kami Garcia...

I grew up outside of Washington DC, but it always felt like I had one foot in the South. By the time I was thirteen, my family moved in with my grandmother and great-grandmother, and we had four generations of women living under the same roof – two born and bred in North Carolina. I grew up drinking sweet tea, eating vegetables cooked with a little bacon grease, and biscuits made from scratch. I mean, didn't everyone's great-grandma know how to skin a chicken, tat lace, and make dresses without a pattern?

I have an MA in education, and taught in the DC area until I moved to Los Angeles ten years ago. In addition to writing YA fiction, I am a Reading Specialist and continue to teach and lead book groups for children and teens, part-time. I have learned more from my students than I ever learned in school. I still live in LA, with my husband, son, and daughter. I'm very superstitious and have lots of charms. I love disaster movies, and I could easily live on pizza and Diet Coke.

Margaret Stohl...

Writing has gotten me in and out of trouble since I was 15 (back then, mostly just in trouble.) I have written everything from video games and video game manuals to live action screenplays, as well as poetry in the UK & the US. For 10 years, I designed &/or wrote for lots of video games, one of which was nominated for 'Most Innovative Game Design,' but I lost to a rapping onion. If you know games you get why my two bad beagles are named Zelda and Kirby.

I live in Santa Monica, CA, with my family, most of whom were enslaved into working with me in one form or another on my forthcoming YA book for Little, Brown. I'm not kidding; when my daughters wanted to go to school I said 'Why are you so selfish? Get back in there and edit,' and by said I mean yelled and maybe threw things, it's all a haze. I have a writing partner named Kami and she is why we ever get anything done. (Well, K and the daughter-slaves…)

And so we wrote a book this year, and it's going to come out in lots and lots of countries in a few months. And I am really, really hoping there is no hot title about a rapping onion coming out at the same time.
