Name That Author!: September 13, 2012

This installment of Name That Author! is sponsored by Glass Heart by Amy Garvey.

Wren Darby can do things that other people only dream of. Make snow fall on a clear, crisp day. Fly through an abandoned tunnel. Bring people back to life.

Wren learned the hard way that her abilities are tinged with danger, but she can’t resist their intoxicating rush. And now that she’s with Gabriel, someone who knows what she can do-what she has done-she finally feels free to be herself.

But as Wren explores her simmering powers, Gabriel starts to grow wary, telling her the risks are too high. And by the time she realizes he may be right, it could be too late to bring him back to her side.


You can submit your guess using the form below after any clue, but if you’re wrong, you’re out for the week. So you’ve got to pick your spot. Too early and you might be wrong; wait until you’re sure, and you might get scooped. We have 5 copies of Glass Heart by Amy Garvey to give away today. The first player to buzz in correctly will win a copy, along with 4 other randomly-selected correct guessers.

**Be warned: if you Tweet your guess or leave a comment with your guess, you’re not only disqualified for this week, but for the rest of the month.**

Here we go:

1. I first proposed to my eventual wife’s older sister. She refused.

2. Eliot’s “The Wasteland” came out a little while after my most breakthrough collection and has overshadowed it ever since.

3. I will eat your plums when you aren’t looking. 

4. I wrote at night and spent my days practicing medicine.

When you participate, you agree to the following: I acknowledge that should I be a lucky soul who wins free swag, my free swag should arrive in a couple of weeks. The sponsor will fulfill the free swag in their preferred format. The format may be a scroll or a hardback, an ebook or an audiobook, or a download directly into my brain. Regardless, I acknowledge that it is free swag, and I’ll be happy because life is too short to be sad about free swag.
