Shelby Bach

Shelby Bach grew up reading every book she could find and writing stories in battered notebooks. She also rarely came home with a clean shirt and had a lot of accidents that ended with a hunt for Band-Aids. Nowadays, she writes on her laptop rather than in a notebook, but not much else has changed. She is the author of the Ever Afters series, which includes OfGiants and Ice, Of Witches and Wind, Of Sorcery and Snow, and Of Enemies and Endings. She lives in Portland, Oregon.

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Written on the cover of my journal: "I go to seek a Great Perhaps." - François Rabelais (via John Green)

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. I have a temper like a volcano. No activity above the surface for eons, but when I finally erupt, it causes a natural disaster.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?


A sunny day, a cup of coffee, a comfy armchair, and a book or notebook in my hands - with an adventure just finished up (or right on the horizon). 

Or an exceptionally tasty meal with good friends and/or family. 

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. MACARONI & CHEESE! With a really tart green apple on the side. :-)

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. My mom (Yes, I know everybody says this, but I do.)
