Author of the Month: Patricia Briggs

 UTC is kicking off the new year with one of our absolute favourite UF and fantasy authors, Patricia Briggs! Patricia is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Mercy Thompson series!

Briggs has made her name with her hit UF series, Mercy Thompson, which follows a smart and very likeable Volkswagen mechanic living in the Tri-cities area of Washington. Mercy is able to shift into a coyote at will and, making the world more interesting is the fact that she is surrounded by vampires, werewolves and fae! You know it's going to be a good time with all those supernatural beings in one place!

Briggs also writes a paranormal romance series in Alpha and Omega. This series is set also in the Mercy Thompson world, however it follows different characters on a slightly different timeline. Note that this series is more sweet, rather than steamy.

Don't forget that Briggs started her writing in the fantasy genre and has written and revisited some of her earlier works, such as Masques. Stay tuned because we will be bringing you plenty more on Patricia Briggs and her books. Watch out for interviews, giveaways, special features and reviews all on our favorite author of January!
