I wrote THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD AND EVIL because of my irrepressible love for female villains. What is it that makes a wicked woman so much scarier than a man?
As I began to build my brand new school, I began to see the witch is nothing without the princess. We put them in opposition, expecting one to win out, but in their search for identity and security, for happiness outside of themselves, for a life worth living...
Aren't a princess and a witch the same?
Like the fairy tales of old, THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD AND EVIL is a trilogy that will appeal to kids and adults alike and will be turned into a series of movies by the producer of ELLA ENCHANTED and TUCK EVERLASTING.
Early Praise for THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD AND EVIL:
"A wild and dangerous fairy tale ride... I loved this book." RL Stine, Author of GOOSEBUMPS
"Invention in overdrive...a writer primed to shoot to the head of the class." Gregory Maguire, Author of WICKED
"The racing energy of Roald Dahl's language and the existential intensity of J.K. Rowling... Startles, enchants, and keep us turning its pages..." Maria Tatar, Author of THE CLASSIC FAIRY TALES
