Name That Author! Special Edition: June 12, 2012

This special edition of Name That Author! is sponsored by The Reckoning by Alma Katsu.

Alma Katsu delivers the highly anticipated follow-up to her haunting novel about an immortal woman learning firsthand that the heart wants what the heart wants…no matter how high the stakes. Fans of The Taker can finally indulge in their next juicy fix with the second book of the trilogy, The Reckoning. In this gripping, pulse-pounding supernatural sequel, discover what happens to Lanny, Luke, Adair—and Jonathan. The Reckoning picks up where The Taker leaves off, following Lanny on her path to redemption—and creating a whole new level of suspense.

Here we go:

1. An English scientific organization issued me a letter of apology for their sexism….100 years after the fact.

2. Unable to find a publisher for my first book myself, I sent it, with my own illustrations to family and friends. One of those friends eventually sent it to a publishers. And now, a century later, young children all over the world still read my books.

3. I had many childhood pets and spent many hours learning to draw them. 

4. Perhaps unsurprisingly, two of my favorite childhood books were Alice in Wonderland and Brer Rabbit.
