Author Spotlight: Jaclyn Moriarty

I haven't done one of these in a while, and I just saw Jaclyn Moriarty's new book come in, A Corner of White. Seems like a great time to highlight her past work and help her gain some new readers!

Jaclyn Moriarity is an Austratlian writer with a ton of fun books under her belt. And if you don't believe me that she's fun, take a look at her blog. Just read the title. "I have a bed made out of buttermilk pancakes." A non-fun person would never be able to come up with such a phrase. (To be fair, it's also the title of one of her novels.)

Many of her books have an epistolary feel to them. (Epistolary novels are books written in letters and emails and such.) They read quickly and quite a few have interchangeable characters. Like, you might find a character from The Year of Secret Assignments popping up in The Ghosts of Ashbury High. In fact, you definitely will because they're part of the same series.

Her latest, A Corner of White, is the beginning of another series. It's realistic with a magical twist and might be just what you're looking for to get you out of your reading rut.

Take a look at the M's in the teen section and give Jaclyn Moriarty a chance!
