Maggie Stiefvater, an American musician, artist and author came to school to talk about her writing career last month. She was really enthusiastic about her books and you could really tell that she loved life. She talked about what inspires her and about her style of writing. She wrote the best-selling Shiver trilogy and the novel The Scorpio Races.
The Shiver Trilogy spent more than 40 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List. In 2010, Linger debuted at the number one spot on the New York Times Bestseller List. Her most-recent book, The Raven Boys, is the first in a series of four that will follow Blue Sargent, daughter of the Henrietta, the town psychic, as she becomes involved with the lives of four students at the local boys' private school who call themselves the Raven Boys.
Maggie was full of enthusiasm and she was very funny. She gave us all advice about never giving up and although it may be a lot of hard work, it is always worth it in the end. I thought she was very inspiring as she was not afraid to be who she is and she always believed in following her dreams and never giving up. - Grace Lovell (L5)
