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.

Personally i don't think this book was as great as the other Sabrina books I've read. It seemed to drag a bit, although i really like the idea of Salem perhaps turning into a mummy... i'll say no more or I'll ruin it. P.S. (I like the fact that all the 'people' are cats!)

Is Salem destined to become a mummy? 10 Oct. 1999
By Mary Proehl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
After a magical vacation to the Egyptian pyramids, Aunt Vesta brings Sabrina a super souvenir. The ancient charm is suppose to help the teenage witch with her cat chores, but instead it transports Sabrina, Salem and Valerie back in time to ancient Egypt!
Salem is thrilled. After all, the Egyptians really knew how to treat their feline friends-they worshipped them as gods. But when the cat Goddess Bast falls hard for the fast-talking black cat, she puts him under a love spell & locks his traveling companions in the maze of the Great Pyramid. As Sabrina & Valerie wind their way through the life-sized puzzle, they enlist the help of some magical figures-and a handsome young pharoah on hiatus from his sarcophagus. But can they bring Salem to his senses before Bast morphs him into a mummy?

My review of Scarabian Nights 1 Oct. 2001
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I think Scarabian Nights is a pretty good book. It's basically about Aunt Vesta's gift to Sabrina, an "Ushabti," a little doll kind of thing. Sabrina wishes she could go back in time with her friend Valerie since she's bored. But she really doesn't mean to wish that. But the Ushabti really takes her back in time with Valerie and Salem, her magical talking cat. Queen Bast, the ruler there, likes Salem, and says she wants to marry him. But then Sabrina finds out the chilling secret: She sees cats turned to stone on the walls of Queen Bast's kingdom. Queen Bast had turned all the cats she was about to marry into stone! What can she do to protect Salem and get out of Queen Bast's kingdom with Valerie and back home!? I'm not going to give away the ending, but I can tell you a series of adventures happen when Sabrina tries to save Salem and get them all back home!
This book sort of drags on in the middle of the book, but except for that, this book is so interesting I couldn't put it down!

A really good book 2 Sept. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is one of the best Sabrina the teenage Witch books [actully I am a very big Sabrina fan and I think that all the books are great and so is the show]This book is about when Sabrina, Valerie,and Salem get sent to Ancient Egpt.When Bast falls for Salem she puts Salem under a spell and locks Sabrina's powers in the love mirror of Iris. When Salem looks in the love mirror of Iris he will forget about everything but Bast.But the problem is that If she ends up not liking Salem she will turn him into a cat statue. I won't to tell you any more because I don't want to ruin the end for you. This is a great book. All you Sabrina Fans out there you just have to read this book!
GOOD 4 April 2002
By Sashie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I stopped reading the Sabrina series a while ago due to the last 5 or so books not been very good, but then I decided to give it one more chance and began my 25th Sabrina book "scarabian nights". I have to say that I was very impressed, I realy liked this one and was glad to see that Valarie was involved and its not about Sabrina and her family as that has got real old. I would go as far as saying this is one of the best Sabrina books, so read it! If you like it I also recomend "showdown at the mall", "Prizoner of cabin 13" and "sabrian goes to Rome". ENJOY!
