Alice Hoffman

Alice Hoffman Picture

Alice Hoffman wrote her first novel when she was 21 and a Mirrielees Fellow at the Stanford University Creative Writing Center. She has since written over 30 books for adults, young adults, and children.  Regarding Alice's latest novel The Rules of Magic, Kirkus Review writes, “The Owens sisters are back—not in their previous guise as elderly aunties casting spells in Hoffman’s occult romance Practical Magic (1995), but as fledgling witches in the New York City captured in Patti Smith’s memoir Just Kids… No one’s more confident or entertaining than Hoffman at putting across characters willing to tempt fate for true love.”
