Soman Chainani belives in fairy tales even more than the
children of Gavaldon do. While studying at Harvard, he practically
created his own 'fairy tale' major and wrote his thesis on why evil
women make such irresistible fairy-tale villains.
Soman is also an acclaimed screenwriter, whose films have played at more than 150 film festivals around the world, winning more than 30 jury and audience prizes.
When he's not telling stories or teaching in New York City, Soman is a die-hard tennis player who never lost a first-round match for ten years. Then he started writing The School for Good and Evil. Now he loses all the time.
