Sherwood Smith is the author of the Inda series, the Crown & Court series, and co-author with Rachel Manija Brown of the brilliant YA series Change.

She’s a brilliant writer who creates memorable characters and intricate worlds. She’s also been workshopping for years, and teaching at the Viable Paradise science fiction and fantasy writers’ workshop.

Sherwood Smith began her publishing career in 1986, writing for adults, young adults and middle grade. To date she’s published over forty books. She’s also written short fiction, screenplays, media tie-ins, and collaborated with several authors, including Andre Norton. One of her books was an Anne Lindbergh Honor Book; she’s twice been a finalist for the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award and is a Nebula finalist. Sherwood Smith earned an M.A. in history, and worked for several years in film and tv production in Hollywood before becoming a teacher for twenty years, working with children from second grade to high school.
