About this author

Adrienne Kress is a Toronto born actor and author who loves to play make-believe. She also loves hot chocolate. And cheese. Not necessarily together.

She is the author of two children's novels: ALEX AND THE IRONIC GENTLEMAN and TIMOTHY AND THE DRAGON'S GATE (Scholastic). Her debut YA novel, THE FRIDAY SOCIETY, launched in the Fall 2012 from Dial, Penguin and her first ever quirky YA paranormal romance, OUTCAST, comes out June 4th, 2013 with Diversion Books.

Because I'm feeling guilty that I haven't blogged in a bit after being so excited to be back (why must life be so . . . life), I thought I'd just do a quicky blog post today to make up for my bad behaviour.

“There they go, my friend, right into the sunset. And even though it happens to be overcast at the moment, let's pretend it isn't, because it's just that much nicer.”
Adrienne Kress, Alex and the Ironic Gentleman

“Aw, man. I’d just shot an angel in the face.I made my way into the foyer and sat down on the stairs. I glanced up at the big old grandfather clock. It was going on ten. My folks would be home soon.
“How was your evening, honey?”
“Killed an angel.”
“Well, isn’t that nice.”
That wasn’t happening. Daddy never liked guns in the first place, Mother just pretended to. I was so grounded.”
Adrienne Kress, Outcast

“Note to self: Never leave home without glitter.”
Adrienne Kress, The Friday Society

Ange (MarmaladeLibby of Libby Blog) Schmelzer I wish there was a countdown widget for The Friday Society to grab and place on my blog. Am I missing it somewhere?

Adrienne Kress You are most welcome, I really did mean what I wrote. :)

Also can I point out how excited I am to have my very first comment?? Huzzah!

Wendy Darling Hi Adrienne, thanks so much for the friendvite and for your lovely note. The whole debacle has been pretty disheartening, but I'm definitely glad to have made so many new friends because of it. :) Look forward to chatting!
