Meg Cabot is a #1 New York Times bestselling author of books for both adults and tweens/teens. Born and raised in Bloomington, Indiana, Meg also lived in Grenoble, France and Carmel, California (the setting for her bestselling Mediator series) before moving to New York City after graduating with a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from Indiana University.

After working for 10 years as an assistant residence hall director at New York University (an experience from which she occasionally draws inspiration for her Heather Wells mystery series --- two new books in the series will be out in 2012 and 2013), Meg wrote the Princess Diaries series, which was made into two hit movies by Disney, sold over 16 million copies, and has been translated into 38 languages.

Meg also wrote the 1-800-Where-R-You? series (which has been reprinted under the title Vanished and was made into the Lifetime series called Missing), as well as numerous other award-winning, bestselling stand-alone books and series, including All-American Girl and Avalon High (on which an original Disney Channel movie was based), and several books told entirely in emails and text messages (BOY NEXT DOOR/BOY MEETS GIRL/EVERY BOY'S GOT ONE).

Meg’s newest series include the tween hit Allie Finkle’s Rules for Girls, the YA trilogy Airhead, and Abandon, the first book in a new paranormal series for young adult readers (the sequel, UNDERWORLD, will be in US stores in spring 2012). INSATIABLE, Meg’s first paranormal romance for adult readers, was followed by a sequel, OVERBITE, in July 2011.

Meg Cabot (her last name rhymes with habit, as in “her books can be habit forming”) currently lives in Key West with her husband and two cats.

But when she’s hired as a guidance counselor at her alma mater, she stumbles across a decade-old murder, and soon ancient history isn’t all that’s coming back to haunt her. Old ghosts as well as new ones are coming out of the woodwork, some to test her, some to vex her, and it isn’t only because she’s a mediator, gifted with second sight. From a sophomore haunted by the murderous specter of a child, to ghosts of a very different kind --- including Paul Slater, Suze’s ex, who shows up to make a bargain Suze is certain must have come from the Devil himself --- Suze isn’t sure she’ll make it through the semester, let alone to her wedding night.

Worse, a scheming politico is trying to force Mia’s father from the throne.
