C.M. Waggoner wrote her first uncomfortable third-person bio in 2019, when it was attached to her debut novel, Unnatural Magic. Her second book, The Ruthless Lady's Guide to Wizardry, came out in January 2021. Publishing on September 24th, 2024 is The Village Library Demon-Hunting Society, which is what happens if someone who watched Buffy the Vampire as a teen went down a Murder She Wrote-shaped wormhole mid-pandemic and spent way too much time thinking about why, exactly, an adorable little New England town would be afflicted by quite so many murders.


Currently bubbling away in the WIP cauldron: a novella about a handsome prince raised as a humble villager reclaiming his rightful throne with predictably disastrous results; an utterly bonkers novel involving perfumery, magical peacocks, and several weird alternate dimensions; and a graphic novel about an amoral undead murder victim turned extremely reluctant superpowered vigilante. 

If you're so moved, this website has all of the links you need to purchase or pre-order a book, so your humble author will be able to afford the really fancy ramen with three different seasoning packets in it. Alternatively, get in touch if you’ve got any comments, questions, scathing criticisms, or just want to say hi. The world is a weird place: you might as well talk to strange fantasy novelists on the internet*.

*Your correspondent can't guarantee that she will respond to every email, but she CAN promise to feel very guilty about all of the emails that she doesn't respond to, which is practically just as good.

“The most unique, haunting, magical, treacherous, romantic, combative novel I’ve read in a long time. Action, betrayal, peoples at war, strange magic and stranger love–a whole new take on fantasy!”
