Kiera Cass is the New York Times Bestselling author of The Selection Series.
Kiera Cass grew up in the 1980s as an an awkward teenager and wanted to perform, but wasn't sure what she wanted to do. She tried all methods of performing from acting, to singing, to dancing, but eventually realized that she loved storytelling over performing, which led her to become an author.
She began writing after a local tragedy in 2007, releasing the self-published book The Siren in 2009 while she was pregnant with her son. Two years later, she got HarperTeen to take on The Selection, which came out on April 24, 2012. The second book in the series, The Elite, was released on April 23, 2013. The latest book to the series, The One, was recently released on May 6, 2014. A new book, The Heir, about the selection of Eadlyn Schreave (Maxon's and America's daughter), will be released on May 5, 2015. The last book, still untitled, will be released on May, 2016.
Along with her books, she wrote two companion novels to The Selection: The Prince and The Guard, plus The Selection Stories, a combination of the two digital novellas. She is writing more novellas: The Queen, released on December 2, 2014, about Queen Amberly's selection. All already published novellas and new ones will be released in an illustrated hardcover October, 2015. She also announced on October 10th 2014 that The Siren will be re-released by HarperTeen around Winter 2016.
Also, Kiera has planned on starting a new series, wherein the very first book has no name, cover or release date, but has a simple description.
