YA author Kelly Coon (GRAVEMAIDENS, Oct. 29 2019 Delacorte Press, sequel 2020) is an editor for Blue Ocean Brain, a member of the Washington Post Talent Network, a former high school English teacher, ACT test prep book author, and a wicked karaoke singer in training. She adores giving female characters the chance to flex their muscles and use their brains, and wishes every story got the happy ending she's living near Tampa with her three sons, brilliant husband, and a rescue pup who will steal your sandwich.

I love cooking soooooooo much. I always want to sign up for cooking classes and rarely use recipes when I'm making dinner. There's something kind of magical about grabbing ingredients from the fridge and pantry and throwing something together that's delicious. I'd love to broaden my horizons with cuisine, and maybe one day I will. =)(less)

You are so sweet! =) This was an accidental author photo. My brother-in-law, who is exceptionally talented, took the photos of me for my website. He snapped this one when I was laughing, and out of every one, we thought it was the best. I love it because it's a reminder of how happy I was that day even thinking that I had an author website to take photos for.

Regarding the title....no! GRAVEMAIDENS was what my lovely agent Kari Sutherland came up with after I'd literally been through every title I could possibly think of with her and my family and my friends and even my editor. When I first submitted my ms to her it was SOULS OF DEAD GIRLS, and when we went out on sub, it was JERICHO ROSE. So....it's definitely been through some changes! (less)

Q&A With Bedford Junior High School

Have I ever told you that teaching is one of my all-time favorite things I’ve ever done? Now, don’t get me wrong. Teaching middle school and high school is not all candy canes and lollipops. There was a whole lot of “Hey, I really don’t wanna wake up at 5:15 and haul my butt to a classroom with bleary-eyed teenagers while we review the underpinnings of benevolence in Romeo and Juliet.”

Just finished Sara Faring's THE TENTH GIRL, and holy horseflies, nobody is ready. Probably one of the most mind-bending books I’ve ever read. Wildly imaginative and complex. Dark with frightening children. Well done, Sara, you evil overlord.
Gravemaidens by Kelly Coon
"The cover of this book is just as beautiful as the story telling inside of it. GRAVEMAIDENS follows the story of a healer's apprentice, Kammani, who must heal the dying king to save her sister and discover whoever's poisoning him to save a kingdom..." Read more of this review »
