YELENA BLACK is a recent MFA graduate of Columbia University. In "Dance of Shadows" Vanessa Adler isn't so sure she really belongs at the School of American Ballet. But dance runs in her family. It's been a part of her life for as long as she can remember. Her grandmother and mother were prima ballerinas, and her older sister Margaret was, too. That is, until Margaret mysteriously disappeared from school three years ago. The infamous choreographer, Josef, isn't just ruthless with his pupils, he guards a sinister secret, one in which the school's dancers-prized for their beauty, grace, and discipline-become pawns in a world of dark, deadly demons. Black currently resides in New York City and is a full-time writer. She has a keen interest in dance and all things devilish.
MEGAN MIRANDA was a scientist and high school teacher before writing her first novel "Fracture", which came out of her fascination with scientific mysteries—especially those associated with the brain. Megan has a BS in biology from MIT and spent her post-college years either rocking a lab coat or reading books. "Hysteria", due out February 5, is her second novel. Megan lives near Charlotte, North Carolina, where she volunteers as an MIT Educational Counselor.
In ROBIN BENWAY's forthcoming novel "Also Known As" (February 26, 2013), there are some drawbacks to being a 16-year old safecracker, daughter of spies, and member of a Robin Hood-esque organization that fights corruption. On the list: never getting to stay in one place long enough to have friends or a boyfriend, being the only spy ever to have a 10 p.m. curfew, and being sent on assignment to Russia. In the winter. For Maggie Silver, the major perk thus far has been the avoidance of high school, and the accompanying cliques, bad lunches, and frustratingly simple Masterlocks on the lockers(If it’s three digits or less, why even bother?).
