Margie Fuston grew up in the woods of California where she made up fantasy worlds that always involved unicorns. She’s still in the woods, but now she spends all her time wrangling a herd of cats and helping her nephews hunt ghosts, pond monsters, and mermaids. Her debut novel, VAMPIRES, HEARTS & OTHER DEAD THINGS, comes out August 24, 2021 with Simon & Schuster/McElderry. Her second novel, CRUEL ILLUSIONS, comes out in 2022.
