About Cherie Priest:
Cherie Priest is the author of nearly two dozen books and novellas. Recent projects include the modern horror project Brimstone, the haunted house thriller The Family Plot, and the hit young adult project I Am Princess X. She is perhaps best known for the steampunk pulp adventures of the Clockwork Century, beginning with Boneshaker. She has been nominated for the Hugo Award and the Nebula Award, and won the Locus Award for Boneshaker.
Cherie has also written a number of urban fantasy titles and composed several pieces for George R. R. Martin’s shared-world universe, Wild Cards. Her short stories and nonfiction articles have appeared in such fine publications as Weird Tales, Publishers Weekly, and numerous anthologies. Her books have been translated into nine languages in eleven countries.
Although she was born in Florida on the day that Jimmy Hoffa disappeared, for the last twenty years Cherie has largely divided her time between Chattanooga, TN, and Seattle, WA — where she presently lives with her husband and a menagerie of exceedingly photogenic pets. Her most recent non-writing project is the loving restoration of a late mid-century modern named Rockford Place (because she loves James Garner).
