Ryan Graudin: LUMINANCE HOUR


My first completed story was the incredibly misspelled The Evetchers of White Wolf, which I scribbled into my father’s tax notebook at the age of six. Though I had many other hobbies— horseback riding, synchronized swimming and backpacking across as many continents as possible—writing was the one I pursued with all my heart. It eventually paid off in the form of my agent Alyssa Eisner Henkin (Trident Media) who found my novel LUMINANCE HOUR a wonderful home at HarperTeen. Expect to see in on the shelves in Summer 2013.

When I’m not building worlds in front of a computer screen, you can find me browsing thrift stores, helping my husband photograph weddings or biking the streets of my native Charleston, SC. I'm also out and about in the online world. You can find me on my blog, Twitter and Goodreads.

About the book: A partying prince falls in love a Kate Middletonesque fae, who has been protecting the British royal family for centuries, and who must make an impossible choice amidst a backdrop of a Buckingham palace murder and paparazzi mayhem.

Favorite Superstition: Down here in the South we have a lot of Gullah superstitions. One of my favorites is haint blue—people paint the trimmings of their windows and doorways a beautiful, bright blue color to keep away evil spirits. It makes for some very colorful residences!

  1. I love the title of your book. The story sounds so fun! Can't wait to read it. And I never heard of that superstition before--it's a pretty one!
