Patricia Briggs

Patricia Briggs, the #1 New York Times best selling author of the Mercy Thompson series, lives in Washington State with her husband, children, and a small herd of horses. She has written over 20 novels to date.

Briggs began her career writing traditional fantasy novels, the first of which was published by Ace Books in 1993. In 2006, she shifted genres slightly and moved into urban fantasy with Moon Called, the first book in her #1 New York Times bestselling and signature series about Mercy Thompson, a VW mechanic who can shape-shift into a coyote.

Briggs also writes the Alpha and Omega series, which are set in the same world as the Mercy Thompson novels.
