  • 5 stars across 7 books
    Stephanie Burgis grew up in East Lansing, Michigan, but fell in love  with Regency England when she discovered the novels of Jane Austen and  Georgette Heyer. Her book A MOST IMPROPER MAGICK won the Waverton Good  Read Children's Award. It was also chosen by Booktrust for its 2012  Bookbuzz book-gifting scheme for Year 7 students across the UK. In  addition, it was longlisted for the Branford Boase Award and for the  British Fantasy Award for Best Fantasy Novel. Stephanie decided to be a  writer when she was seven and sold her first short story when she was  fifteen. She lives with her husband - fellow writer Patrick Samphire -  their son, and their dog in Wales. Visit her at  or on Twitter: @stephanieburgis.
