Audrey Niffenegger

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. In 2005, she wrote a graphic novel, or "novel in pictures" as Niffenegger calls it, titled The Three Incestuous Sisters, telling 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 serialized 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. 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.

She is currently working on a novel called The Chinchilla Girl in Exile.

Art and academia

Niffenegger is a professor in the Department of Creative Writing at Columbia College Chicago, and the founding member of T3 or Text 3, an artist and writer's group which also performs and exhibits in Chicago. She is an alumna and board member of the Ragdale Foundation.

Personal life

Niffenegger is married to cartoonist Eddie Campbell.


Niffenegger describes herself as "somewhere in the spectrum of agnosticism and atheism" and ascribes her disbelief to her Catholic background.
