I was thrilled this year to receive a City Artist Grant from The City of Seattle. For the final presentation of the chapters I was supported to write this summer…I will be reading from my second, not-yet-released novel, Starbird Murphy and the World Outside at Cheap Coffee & Young Adult Fiction on September 27, 7pm at Richard Hugo House.
And that’s not all. I somehow convinced three of Seattle’s hottest YA authors to read with me. The event is FREE, ALL AGES and promises to be amazing. Just check out the talent I have talked into reading…
Sean Beaudoin is the author of The Infects, a zombie novel released mere days ago and now shambling it’s way toward you. His other books include Fade to Blue, which is about a girl who gets run over by an ice cream truck, and You Killed Wesley Payne, which is fairly self-explanatory. He almost always ends his bio with a ironic comment.
Kevin Emerson is the author of the OLIVER NOCTURNE SERIES and CARLOS IS GONNA GET IT. His next novel, THE LOST CODE, the first book in the Atlanteans series, comes out in May 2012 with Katherine Tegen Books. His next middle grade novel, THE FELLOWSHIP FOR ALIEN DETECTION, comes out in January 2013 with Walden Pond Press. Kevin is also a musician. His current project is THE BOARD OF EDUCATION, where he writes imaginative, poppy songs about elementary school and life in the spirit of Schoolhouse Rock.
Lish McBride was raised by wolves in the Pacific Northwest. It rains a lot there, but she likes it anyway. She spent three years away while she got her MFA in fiction from the University of New Orleans, and she liked that too, although the hurricane did leave much of her stuff underwater. Her main goal in going to college was to become a writer so she could wear pajamas pretty much all the time. She enjoys reading, movies, comics, and preparing herself for the inevitable zombie apocalypse. Currently, Lish lives happily in Seattle where the weather never actually tries to kill you, with her family, two cats, and one very put-upon Chihuahua. She is slowly building her garden gnome army.
