Mudville Dames presents Maria V Snyder and special guests J. Daniel Batt, Christina McKnight, June Gilliam, and Angelique Anderson for a very special Q&A and book signing. This will be the first time Maria has been to California since 2006.
Maria V. Snyder switched careers from meteorologist to novelist when she began writing The New York Times best-selling Study Series (Poison Study, Magic Study, and Fire Study) about a young woman who becomes a poison taster. Born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Maria dreamed of chasing tornadoes and even earned a Bachelors of Science degree in Meteorology from Pennsylvania State University. Unfortunately, she lacked the necessary forecasting skills. So, she worked as an environmental meteorologist until boredom and children drove her to write down the stories that have been swirling around in her head.
Come meet local authors in the author lobby before and after the event:
