We learned that this bestselling author (Shiver, the first book of her YA trilogy, was on The New York Times bestseller list for more than 25 weeks in hardcover) i
s also a bagpipe-playing, Camaro-owning, cake-baking mother of two who wrote more than 30 novels before getting published (and she's only 30!). Did we mention she was really nice?
Her new novel, The Scorpio Races, out this week from Scholastic, promises to have cross-appeal for lovers of YA, fantasy, horse stories, romance and action-adventure. Reviewers are using words like “dazzling,” “masterful” and “heartstopping.” We've got two signed hardcover copies and a paperback advance reading copy. We'll mail them to the first people we hear from who comment on this post. Oh, yeah, and we'll throw in her recipe for some November Cakes!
