Tamora Pierce loves Scars!

Oh my GOSH! Tamora Pierce, one of my favorite authors, named SCARS as one of her favorite YA books of 2011! (beaming and beaming) It’s such a thrill when an author whose work you love, loves your work as well! I am floored. Thrilled!

And I’m also in a list with a bunch of other authors I love and admire, including Laurie Halse Anderson, Gail Giles, Nancy Garden, Pam Bachorz, Eva Ibbotson, Jackie Morse Kessler, Melinda Metz, and, and, and!


By the way, if you like strong girl characters and fantasy, and you’ve never read Tamora Pierce’s Song of the Lioness series with Alanna, or The Immortals series with Daine, you need to pick them up. They rock.
