Maggie Stiefvater (b. November 18, 1981) is a bestselling American author of young-adult/urban fantasy novels. She currently lives in Virginia. She attended Mary Washington College, graduating with a B.A. in history. After graduating, she worked as a portrait artist, specializing in equestrian art.; her art was collected internationally. At 16, Stiefvater legally changed her first name from Heidi to Margaret. She is married with two children.
Except being a wonderful artist and writer, Maggie also plays on several different instruments. She played the highland bagpipes competitively while in college, and began a Celtic band, Ballynoola, that toured on the eastern seaboard. Stiefvater wrote music scores for all of her books, which she also performed herself along with her sister Kate Hummel. The songs are used in the trailers of the books (also made by Maggie herself).
