About this author

I suppose I have always been enamored with story and character. My mother tells me I could be the most annoying little kid, waking up each day as a new character. Every morning she would have to ask me "who" I was for that day, because unless properly addressed I refused to answer anyone.

One time when I was about four years old, my parents were out shopping at Sears. They each thought the other had me by the hand when in fact I was exploring my own aisle (translation: I was lost!)

“Some things aren't meant to be known. Only believed.”
Mary E. Pearson, The Adoration of Jenna Fox

“My timing is off. But I had to get it out. Some things you have to tell, no matter how stupid they may sound. Some things you can't save for later. There might not be a later. ”
Mary E. Pearson, The Adoration of Jenna Fox

“Pieces.
A bit for someone here.
A bit there.
And sometimes they don't add up to anything whole.
But you are so busy dancing.
Delivering.
You don't have time to notice.
Or are afraid to notice.
And then one day you have to look.
And it's true.
All of your pieces fill up other people's holes.
But they don't fill
your own.”
Mary E. Pearson, The Adoration of Jenna Fox

Kathryn hi, I just read your book "addoration of Jenna Fox" and I loved it!
I just have one question that has been bugging me ever since I finished reading the book. Dane, what's his role in this book?
First I thought he was like Jenna but I'm not sure.. I'm really confused.
