About the Author

Ransom Riggs grew up in Florida but now makes his home in the land of peculiar children--Los Angeles. Along the way he earned degrees from Kenyon College and the University of Southern California's School of Cinema-Television, got married, and made some award-winning short films. He moonlights as a blogger and travel writer, and his series of travel essays, "Strange Geographies," can be found at mentalfloss.com or via ransomriggs.com. This is his first novel.
