About this author

Courtney King Walker grew up Walnut Creek, California building rocket ships and rafts out of cardboard just so she could go to the moon and Niagara Falls. But a trip across the border to Tijuana was as exciting as it ever got.

After being banned from the kitchen after a few too many catastrophes, she discovered a love for writing, music and art, and eventually earned her BFA in graphic design at BYU.

She has lived in St. Louis, Chicago and San Francisco, and now resides in Salt Lake City with her husband and four children where she continues to pursue all things creative, including writing, designing, composing music and baking, with an emphasis on making a killer piecrust.

This is a beautifully written story about learning to let go when we don't want to but need to, while at the same time finding the strength to hold on to the things that matter. I loved how Teresa tied everything together in such an understated but s ...more

This was fantastic! Loved every word. I'm convinced anybody who gave this book anything less than 4 stars is not a true fan. Just sayin'.

I loved how Cary's affection for the cast and crew of The Princess Bride remains so strong - how he still speaks

This started with a bang and didn't ever stop! Lindsay's story pulls you in from the get-go and keeps you going with a dark, intense, grisly story. Great debut!

“Nothing could be purged without a body—no crying, no exertion, no pills to take away the pain or calm me down. Nothing. Instead, something ballooned inside me until I felt like I might explode. All I could do was sit there and drown in it, wondering why Claire affected me so much, wondering if she always would.”
Courtney King Walker, On the Fringe

“I had the strange desire for a giant butterfly net to catch whatever was out there, as if it could be captured so easily.”

“You know, there are good reasons to learn how to read. Poetry isn't one of them. I mean, so what if two roads go two ways in a wood? So what? Who cares if it made all that big a difference? What difference? And why should I have to guess what the difference is? Isn't that what he's supposed to say?

Why can't poets just say what they want to say and then shut up?”
Gary D. Schmidt, Okay for Now

“I almost cried. But I didn't, because if you're in seventh grade and you cry while wearing a blue floral cape and yellow tights with white feathers on the butt, you just have to curl up and die somewhere in a dark alley.”

Courtney Thanks Jillian! Waiting for a debut release is eerily similar to being pregnant for 9months - except this is more like a 12-month baby. I'm hoping to get some ARCs before the end of the summer. Keep the great posts coming - we all benefit from "thinking" a little more deeply and a little more carefully.


message 2: by Lani

Lani Woodland On The Fringe is coming out soon. I'm excited to read it. :)


Courtney Thank you Lani! It's getting exciting. I'm anxious to read Indelible, too!
