Casey McQuiston grew up in the swamps of Southern Louisiana, where she cultivated an abiding love for honey butter biscuits and stories with big, beating hearts. She studied journalism and worked in magazine publishing for years before returning to her first love: joyous, offbeat romantic comedies and escapist fiction. She now lives in the mountains of Fort Collins, Colorado, with a collection of caftans and her poodle mix, Pepper. Red, White & Royal Blue is her first novel.
Casey McQuiston recommends
Felix Ever After (2020)
"A firecracker of a book from an author with a powerful point of view, Felix Ever After is refreshingly realfull of queer kids who live and breathe and swear and love and make messy mistakes. Teens need this one."
Make Up Break Up (2021)
"A delightful, clever enemies-to-lovers romcom full of Menon's trademark sunshine with a bit of extra heat, Make Up Break Up will make you swipe right."
Some Girls Do (2021)
"Earnest, wistful, romantic, and real, Some Girls Do captures butterflies-in-your-stomach, most-important-thing-ever first love and still finds room to explore the messiness of coming out and coming of age queer."
Don't Hate the Player (2021)
"Refreshingly voice-y, wildly smart, and genuinely hilarious."
With Teeth (2021)
"With Teeth took me to a seedy Florida lesbian bar, handed me a flat beer with lipstick on the rim, and told me a story I couldn’t walk away from even if I tried. An exquisitely unsettling, brilliantly layered, darkly funny novel that’ll make you question your own perceptions."
The Witch Haven (2021)
Sasha Peyton Smith
"Smith opens a trick door between bruising history and glittering fantasy, to a place that will leave you drunk on secrets and dreaming of magic (and murder). The Witch Haven is spectacular, singular, and spellbinding."
