It's always a pleasure to spend time with Maggie Stiefvater. She's one of the most fan-engaged authors I know, and she writes books that get read, talked about, and passed along among friends. She wrapped up her Raven Cycle series last year and recently published a stand alone novel, All the Crooked Saints. This novel has something a little different--Stiefvater is venturing into magical realism and she does it well.
All the Crooked Saints tells the story of a small desert town where people go to seek miracles from the special few who can perform them and we learn that there can be a fine line between what we most desire and what we most fear... When Stiefvater visited our office we talked about the book, what she most wants and fears, and building a music studio. You'll find it all in the short video below.
