Audrey Niffenegger (born June 13, 1963) is an American writer, artist and academic.
Niffenegger's debut novel, The Time Traveler's Wife, was published in 2003. A film adaptation was released in 2009.
She has written a graphic novel, or "novel in pictures" as Niffenegger calls it, called The Three Incestuous Sisters. This book tells the story of three unusual sisters who live in a seaside house. The book has been compared to the work of Edward Gorey.
Another graphic novel, The Adventuress, was released on September 1, 2006.
The 2004 short story 'The Night Bookmobile' was serialised in 2008 in 'Visual Novel' format in The Guardian.
In March 2009, Niffenegger sold her second novel, a literary ghost story called Her Fearful Symmetry, to Charles Scribner's Sons for an advance of $5 million.[2] The book was released on October 1, 2009 and is set in London's Highgate Cemetery where, during research for the book, Niffenegger acted as a tour guide. Though not as huge a commercial juggernaut as The Time Traveler's Wife, this book got generally more positive critical reviews and cinched Niffenegger's reputation as a leading novelist of ideas and atmosphere.
Niffenegger collaborated with Wayne McGregor on a balletic fable, Raven Girl (2013), performed at the Royal Opera House in London in 2013, 2015.
