Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments series, epic urban fantasy set in a richly imagined world of shadowhunters, vampires, werewolves, fairies, and more, has captured the imaginations and loyalty of hundreds of thousands of YA readers. Originally a trilogy ("City of Bones," "City of Ashes," "City of Glass"), the series has extended to six titles, plus a prequel trilogy, the Infernal Devices, and a planned sequel series, the Dark Artifices. A feature film is planned for 2013.
"Shadowhunters and Downworlders," edited by Clare (who provides an introduction to the book and to each piece), is a collection of YA writers on the series and its world.

Her first book, "City of Bones," was a 2007 "Locus" Award finalist for Best First Novel. Her books have been translated into 32 languages. She lives in Massachusetts with her husband and two cats.
