Fiction author for young adults
Fantasy, Mystery and Suspense
I'm Maurissa Guibord. I'm a writer who lives on the coast of Maine.
Hmm...something about me?
I love stories. Usually ones with happy endings, but not always. Mostly I love stories that make me think I'm in the story, that magical, exciting or spooky things are happening to me and I can't wait to turn the page and see what happens. Because, well, it's about me, right?
Maybe I'm weird that way but I don't think so. I bet there are a lot of us!
Anyway that's how I got to be a writer- by being a weird, insatiable story addict since the 7th grade when I got completely hooked and bedazzled by The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas. It took a lot of reading before the idea ever occurred to me that I might be able to write a story like the ones I loved.
Years and years.
And soon my first novel will be published. It's a young adult fantasy called Warped and will be released in 2011 from Delacorte Press. Warped is romantic and a little scary and slightly funny.
