Gail Carriger writes comedies of manners mixed with paranormal romance (and the sexy San Andreas Shifter series as G L Carriger). Her books include the Parasol Protectorate, Custard Protocol, and Supernatural Society series for adults, and the Finishing School series for young adults. She is published in many languages and has over a dozen NYT bestsellers. She was once an archaeologist and is fond of shoes, octopuses, and tea.

RT Book Reviews (Prudence)"A character-driven romp with great world-building and delicious rapier wit that recalls Austen and P.G. Wodehouse." io9.com (Soulless)"This genre-bender will introduce fans of Ally Carter's Gallagher Girls and Jennifer Lynn Barnes' The Squad to a world of mechanical maids and flying machines while bringing a spy-school romp to readers of the weightier worlds of Cassandra Clare and Scott Westerfield."
