It is always fun to meet the people who write the books you enjoy and find out what they are really like. It's just as much fun for them to meet you and find out what you think of their stories and characters. The Mukilteo Library is hosting four wonderful authors for teens on October 18 at 4 pm and you're invited to join us, talk to the authors, even buy their books and get them autographed. Who's coming?
Kendare Blake, the author of Anna Dressed in Blood and its sequel, Girl of Nightmares. Cas Lowood is spending his teen years getting rid of the murderous dead--until he meets Anna, a very unusual ghost. I don't even like horror stories, but I liked these!
J. Anderson Coats, the author of The Wicked and the Just. Cecily and Gwenhwyfar live in medieval Wales, but their personalities and conflicts feel as fresh as today. Wouldn't it be great if all historical fiction were this good?
Daniel Marks, author of Velveteen. Velveteen may be dead, but she's still looking for the serial killer who murdered her. You may have to keep the lights on after you read this one!
Jennifer Shaw Wolf, the author of Breaking Beautiful. Allie is a mess both physically and emotionally when her boyfriend Trip dies, but it's not just grief--she's dealing with his abuse, too. Just a gripping mystery--and it's set in Washington!
