Crystal Smith


Crystal Smith is the author of the young adult BLOODLEAF series, the first title of which is now available from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and is in development for a TV series. She works as a wedding photographer and graphic artist, and she is an unabashed love story enthusiast. When she’s not ordering wedding clients or fictional characters to kiss, she can be found re-watching Jane Eyre or reading ghost stories with all the lights on. She lives in Utah with her husband and their two children.





what others are saying

"The plot is breathlessly fast, complete with creepy spirits, a satisfying romance, and complex but clear political twists and turns....Political, romantic, magical, timely, yet also traditionally appealing."


"Debut author Smith explores the power of sacrifice in this darkly romantic reimagining of the Brothers Grimm’s The Goose Girl."

Publishers Weekly

“Enchanting, visceral, and twisty, Bloodleaf is a phantasmagorical wonder that will keep you guessing until the very last page.”

Laura Sebastian, New York Times bestselling author of Ash Princess
