My name is Kelly, and I am an elementary school librarian. I spent five years as a high school librarian, and that is where I developed a true and abiding passion for young adult literature.
I love to read, and I spend as much time doing that as I possibly can. I especially enjoy young adult literature, but I’ll read almost anything except hardcore horror, westerns, and nearly any book written by Charles Dickens.
My favorite authors are Jane Austen, J.K. Rowling, Cassandra Clare, Rick Riordan, William Goldman, and lots and lots of others. Some of my favorite books include (but are not limited to): Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books, Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices series, The Princess Bride by William Goldman, all of Rick Riordan’s YA/middle grade mythology-related novels, The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins, and too many others to name.
Here is a picture of me with Alane Ferguson, author of the YA forensic mysteries The Christopher Killer, The Angel of Death, The Circle of Blood, and The Dying Breath. (I’m the one with glasses.)
