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)

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)

“The Boatman's Refrain

The river is wide
The river is deep
I take their souls to earn my keep

The end of day
Is the start of night
I bathe in horror, bask in fright

Three queens of beauty
Maidens fair
I'll hide their souls within my lair

For the river is wide
The river is deep
I take their souls to earn my keep”
Kelly Coon, Gravemaidens

“There wasn't a choice, though. Family was family. It was a message that was my mother's constant reminder: No matter what, you take care of what's yours. No matter what, you stay strong and you take care of those closest to you.”
Kelly Coon, Gravemaidens

“Is that what love is to you? A burden? I think love is bliss and happiness and joy. It is like the syrup on top of a honeycake.”
Kelly Coon, Gravemaidens

“Ever Tried. Ever Failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.”
Samuel Beckett
