So honored to be the bookseller for Cat Winters' launch at one of our favorite venues!
A portion of this evening's sales goes to support The Poe Museum. Thank you for contributing with your purchases!
Cat Winters is a critically acclaimed, award-winning author of five novels for teens: In the Shadow of Blackbirds, The Cure for Dreaming, The Steep and Thorny Way, Odd & True, and a forthcoming novel about Edgar Allan Poe's teenage years, The Raven's Tale (available 4/16/19). She has been named a Morris Award finalist, a Bram Stoker Award nominee, and an Oregon Spirit Book Award winner, and her young adult novels have appeared on Kirkus, School Library Journal, and Booklistbest-of-the-year lists, as well as numerous state lists. She is also the author of two novels for adults, The Uninvited and Yesternight, and she contributed to the young adult horror anthology Slasher Girls & Monster Boys.
Winters was born and raised in Southern California, near Disneyland, which may explain her love of haunted mansions, bygone eras, and fantasylands. She received degrees in drama and English from the University of California, Irvine, and formerly worked in publishing. She currently lives in a suburb outside of Portland, Oregon, surrounded by forests that offer ample inspiration for her Gothic, atmospheric tales.
