Richelle Mead is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of urban fantasy books for both adults and teens.
Before becoming a writer, she considered a few different career paths. She received a liberal arts degree from the University of Michigan, an MA in Comparative Religion from Western Michigan University, and a Master in Teaching (Middle and High School English) degree from the University of Washington. In the end, she decided writing was the way for her but believes all of her education prepared her for it.
She currently lives in Seattle, Washington with her husband and four cats.
Guest 4 years agoThe books are so much better than the movie. The movie left out so many important parts. If anything they show do a tv series so that they can squeeze in the important parts istead of taking it out. I also need a dimitri and rose wedding, I love them so much it hurts
Guest 4 years agoIf they decide to make it into a movie or show * instead* I really should have edited this before commenting
Guest 4 years agoI'm a new fan of this author and the vampire academy series but how do I know what order to read them in? can anyone help.
Guest 4 years agoThe main series starts with Vampire Academy. There are 6 books in that series.
Then a spin off series starts. It's about Adrian and a few characters from the first series BUT NOT the main characters. It has it's own characters and story line.
Then there are several Vampire Academy short stories that Richelle Mead has written too.
Sunshine, this is where Lissa's parents meet and fall in like/love.
The Turn and The Flame, this is when Christian's parents choose to turn Strigoi and go on a killing spree. They "Turn" and the "Flame" is how they're defeated.
The Meeting, is the first chapter of Vampire Academy, book 1, from Dimitri's point of view (POV)
Hello, My Name is Rose Hathaway, is about a festival that is in the fall between Vampire Academy and Frostbite. It's funny and lighthearted and a lovable story to read.
Adrian's Lost Chapter, this takes place on Adrian's birthday, August 3. This is the day that starts the Bloodlines's series.
Homecoming, is where Dimitri and Rose go to Russia to tell his family some good news.
Richelle Mead is currently working on a new story for the VA world but hasn't officially given any dates or news as to what the story will be about or when it will come out. It's just a new idea she's working on.
Most of the short stories are online free, but they are also in books if you want to read find them to read.
Guest 4 years agoI absolutely love all of her books!!! I just wish she would write more.
Guest 4 years agoShe told someone in July that she is working on something new for the VA world. It was talked about on the Vampire Academy FB page.
