It’s such a feel-good thing to have my book recognized! For any author to have that happen. (grinning)

In the ages Fourteen and Up category, I am in the absolutely fantastic company of authors Sara Zarr and Tara Altebrando (Roomies), Andrew Smith (Winger), David Levithan (Two Boys Kissing), Holly Black (The Coldest Girl In Coldtown), Alex London (Proxy), Rainbow Rowell (Eleanor & Park, and Fangirl), Adele Griffin (Loud Awake and Lost), Erin Bowman (Taken), Patrick Ness (More Than This), Bill Konigsberg (Openly Straight), Cal Armistead (Being Henry David), and many, many others. Some of my favorite authors and books are on this list! I hope you’ll check it out to find many more great reads that you might not have read yet. I know I will be.

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
