Short biography
Kelli Stanley lives in San Francisco. When she’s not writing or wandering in the fog, she can be found at bookstores, speakeasies and classic movie palaces.

CITY OF DRAGONS [Indie Next Pick, February, 2010]—a dark, sweeping story of 1940 San Francisco—is a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, and was nominated for the Bruce Alexander Memorial Historical Mystery Award as well as the RT Book Review's Best Historical Mystery award. Lee Child praised this highly acclaimed noir historical as "Beautifully imagined and beautifully written--this book does everything great fiction is supposed to."

Kelli’s debut novel, Nox Dormienda (A Long Night for Sleeping), won the Bruce Alexander Memorial Mystery Award, and initiated a new genre: Roman noir. The sequel, THE CURSE-MAKER, was published by Thomas Dunne/Minotaur Books in February 2011 to critical acclaim.

Kelli's next book is CITY OF SPIDERS, the sequel to CITY OF DRAGONS and second book in the Miranda Corbie series. It launches September 13, 2011; the CITY OF DRAGONS trade paperback releases August 30, 2011.
