ABOUT MAILE MELOY

Maile Meloy grew up in Helena, Montana, and was always a reader. She was an English major in college, and then worked as a river ranger in Utah, and on a political campaign in Montana. When she moved to Los Angeles, she taught swimming lessons and then became a development assistant at Disney Direct-to-Video Animation. She played on the U.S. women’s kayak polo team for four years. She writes short stories and essays, and has published award-winning books of fiction for adults. Her first novel for kids, the New York Times bestseller The Apothecary, combines historical fiction and fantasy and won the E.B.
