I asked my kids what kinds of books the following authors write, and here are their entertaining answers...What does she write? *very sure* Fantasy, for YA. She looks pretty, and pretty/young go with romance authors, but her hair doesn't say romance, and she doesn't look weird enough to be a science fiction author, or mean enough to write horror. Here, I am thinking twice because my daughter knows enjoyed writing a short horror story recently. Hm. Anyway, this is Kate Messner, the author of middle grade novels The Brilliant Fall of Gianna Z and Sugar and Ice.
*I show her the picture* Ooooooooo, um...romance. YA.Why's that?Because she looks like a magazine cover and people who write romance sometimes do. This is Cynthea Liu, author of the middle grade novel Paris Pan Takes the Dare, which I haven't read yet, but it's on my TBR. I wonder if this MG has romance. Cynthea also helps aspiring authors through her book Writing for Children and Teens.
How about this one. What does she write?Hm. I don't know. Let's go with autobiography.Why?I bet she...would write a book about herself, *laughs* because she took time to go to a portrait studio to take a picture of just her with that blue lighting, black shirt, and her hair set just so. Good one. This is Katherine Hannigan, author of Ida B, one of my all time, favorite middle grade stories. I guess it could be a secret autobiography, you know? Did Katherine put a lot of herself into Ida B? I wonder.
And last, but most surely not least...How about this guy? *laughs* Horror, for adults, *waits, scrunches face* but the way his eyebrows go up, I'm unsure 'cuz that's what a nice guy would do - not horror. He could be a mystery writer. Think of the Clue game. I can imagine one like him smoking a cigar. Does one of the Clue characters actually smoke? I'd have to get it out to see. We all know this guy!
