Holly Black

An avid collector of rare folklore volumes, Holly spent her early years in a decaying Victorian mansion where her mother fed her on a steady diet of ghost stories and faerie tales – an upbringing with eerie similarities to the settings in The Spiderwick Chronicles. She also writes for the older teen audience with her faerie fantasy novels, Tithe and Ironside. Holly lives in Massachusetts with her husband and a spooky doll collection.
