Author Meg Cabot

So I’m a little behind, but Happy birthday, Meg Cabot! Meg Cabot is the author of The Princess Diaries series from which Disney produced two super cool movies, The Princess Diaries and The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement.

Your average, everyday nobody in the good ol’ USA, Mia Thermopolis is shocked to learn from her father that she is next in line for the throne in the country of Genovia.

Disney made a few adjustments to the story when transferring it to film. One pretty big change is that Disney kills off Mia’s dad. Big surprise there, right? No. Not at all. Disney has a certain affinity for disposing of royal parents often when princesses are involved. At least Mia’s mom still gets to stick around to help her through the trials of becoming the proper princess.

Meg Cabot’s birthday is February 1. She provides great reads for teens and adults. Follow her on Twitter for updates and musings here.
