Genre


J. Anderson Coats has dug for crystals, held Lewis and Clark’s original hand-written journal and been a mile underground. She has a cool surgery scar unrelated to childbirth, she reads Latin, and she's been given the curse of Cromwell on a back-road in Connemara. On a clear day, she can see the Olympic mountains from her front window. On the foggy ones, she can smell the Puget Sound.

J writes historical fiction set in the middle ages that routinely includes too much violence, name-calling and petty vandalism perpetrated by badly-behaved young people. THE WICKED AND THE JUST (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2012) is her first book.

J. Anderson Coats isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but she does have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from her feed.

The PNW launch for A TYRANNY OF PETTICOATS was a blast! Marissa Meyer, Leslye Walton, and I had a lot of fun answering questions about inspiration, the creative process, and the writing life in general. Also, there was cake, which makes everything that much better. A big thank-you to the University Bookstore in Bellevue for hosting us, and to everyone who helped make this event awesome!
