I'm celebrating the work of Patrick Carman this month, and in the process of typing this post I'm looking after an abandoned 5 week old kitten.
*scratching at keyboard*
I first discovered Patrick's work in 2003 with his debut novel The Dark Hills Divide, a series called The Land of Elyon. We're a read-it-aloud family, and enjoyed the memorable characters and adventures.

A few years later, I was delighted with his series, Skeleton Creek, a book-online video combination. It was the first of its kind, and has just the right amount of scare for my taste.
*purring and pawing at bottle held by my daughter*
You can find out more about him here, along with his other books...
39 Clues (one of several authors)
Thirteen Days to Midnight and
Trackers (another book-online video combination)

Additionally, Patrick is giving the keynote address at the ALA Conference in New Orleans at the end of this month.
Have you read any of his work?
*OUCH! He's biting my elbow*
