More About the Author

In real life, I'm the mother of a teenage steampunker and the slave of two Corgis and two cats. I am also the chief attendant of five Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches. Alas, MHC Betty recently departed this earthly terrarium for Cockroach Heaven.

In my amazon life, I'm the New York Times bestselling author (with Debbie VIguié) of the Wicked series (Wicked 1, Wicked 2, and Wicked: Resurrection) as well as our new series, Crusade. Both series are marketed as young adult, but we have a lot of "old adult" fans, too. We have also sold a third series called The Wolf Springs Chronicles to Delacorte (Random House.) All three of these series are available in the UK, or will be soon.

Wicked has been optioned by DreamWorks, and Debbie and I are very excited about that.

I also write the young adult horror series, Possessions. There are three books in the series: Possessions, The Evil Within, and The Screaming Season.

I have written a lot of episode guides, novels, and short fiction for such "worlds" as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Smallville, Hellboy, and other TV shows and films. I've written for Harlequin, Nancy Drew, and a lot of material under house names. I love working on fairy tale retellings. By my count, Prince Charming has been married three times at least. In addition, I write comic books and pulp fiction. I've received four Bram Stoker awards for my supernatural fiction. I'm a frequent contributor to anthologies edited by the English horror editor, Stephen Jones.

My two passions in life are Richard Dean Anderson in his Stargate years and the vocal stylings of Anthony Stewart Head.

I teach at the Stonecoast Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing Program at the University of Sourthen Maine. I'm a theme park junkie and dreamt of going to Robin Hood Land in Nottingham, but was recently informed of its demise. I am bereft. Like any good Californian, I also love going to Renn Faires and the Dickens Fair, held in the sumptuous Cow Palace near San Francisco. I'm also a Maker Faire-goer and there's a great annual Dr. Who convention up in L.A.--about two hours from my house by car unless there's traffic, and then it takes about a week or two unless I get the keys to the Tardis.

I love the fact that it's similar to the TV series. It's easy to link the two together. But there are slight changes from the TV series which I love because you can't always tell what's going to happen next so you can't stop reading.

Definitely worth a read if you've seen the series as helps explain a bit more about the relationship of hate between Derek and Kate Argentina

Wasn't Impressed 19 Jan. 2013
By Megan - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
There are a few things that I didn't care for about this book. But the main problem I had is that Nancy Holder takes events out of the chronological timeline. The first chapter clearly states that the book begins at the end of the fifth episode of season one, "The Tell." However in Chapter Four on page 41,
"Maybe they could flush out the Alpha by observing him. If only she could figure out who the second Beta was. Maybe the sheriff's kid. Maybe the one with the werewolf claw marks on his neck. What was his name-Jackson?"

Kate isn't even introduced to Jackson OR notice the marks on his neck until the ninth episode of season one "Wolfs Bane".

Also, on page 10.

"Stiles had on his bull's-eye T-shirt, and it kind of freaked Scott out when he wore it. As if it meant that Stiles was a target. They both knew the Alpha wanted Scott to kill him, to cement Scott's acceptance that he was a member of the Alpha's pack."

During the point this book takes place they should not know that information. It isn't until the end of the seventh episode "Night School" that Scott realizes this.

The writing wasn't horrible, however all of the exposition explaining the storyline was difficult to get through. Yes, it made the story easier to follow for someone who isn't familiar with the show or it's storyline. But for those who are familiar, it made the story repetitive and, in my opinion, bland. Also, as has been mentioned before, there wasn't enough Stiles for me.

Perhaps I am merely too picky a person, but my recommendation would be to search your local libraries for a copy of "On Fire" before you decide to purchase it.

Just a couple of examples as to why I wasn't impressed with this novel.

Good for avid fans, but an average read 24 Dec. 2012
By Karen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This read like an average piece of fan-fiction to me. I'd recommend it to anyone who is desperately attached to the show, as I think it's nice to get a glimpse of some things that went down before the show began (re: the Hale house fire). The writing wasn't particularly strong, and the plot was a little ridiculous, but I enjoyed it overall. The real question now is whether or not this can be considered canon. If so, it'll be nice to (hopefully) see some of this played out on screen in season 3.

atrocious writing - an insult to fans and readers 2 July 2013
By S.K.Roark - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This author could not have passed an 8th grade English exam... in a second-rate public school. I have read some of her other work (all regurgitated rip-off material from TV shows) so I knew not to expect much, but one of the reviews mentioned that this book included some information that revealed more of the show's mythology and character history. It does not. The author and publisher should be punished for insulting the intelligence of fans of the show and abusing the rules of grammar and punctuation.

A Great Book for Teen Wolf 4 Aug. 2012
By Michael Loring - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Fans of Teen Wolf absolutely will love this book, because it holds all of the elements of the show with a literary twist. It was a bit difficult to start it off, as it attaches itself to a former episode in season one and trails off from there. But once you get into it it's hard to get out.

My favorite parts were the chapters from Derek's perspective. In the show he's such a mysterious character and we don't get to see too much into his head, but in this book we see much more than we could have hoped. With flashbacks to Derek's past leading up the the fateful fire that killed his family we see a side to Derek Hale we never saw in the show.

There were parts I wished the author would have capitalized on. One of them being Stiles. His character is no doubt the funniest in all of the show, and I feel he was tossed aside a little too carelessly in this novel. The parts he was involved in were spectacular, but they were too far in between all of the Derek angst and the Scott and Alison kissing.

This was definitely a great book, and I highly recommend it to all Teen Wolf fans!

Awful story 4 April 2013
By Margaret - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Huge Teen Wolf fan here and I knew this was going to be an awful read going into it, but just had to anyway. I was not disappointed in how bad it is. Most fanfiction has a better developed writing style and I can't even begin to articulate just how bad the plot in this is. And for the record, there's no way this is canon. No possible way. Parts of it go directly against what has been stated in the show or against what Jeff Davis has said during panels. It's a pretty quick read if you're curious anyway.
