Katie Jane Gallagher is the author of Specter and the serialized YA fantasy The Gold in the Dark. She is a life-long writer, and her stories feature relatable, realistic characters who get swept up in extraordinary events. An avid reader of YA and genre fiction, she has a self-proclaimed affinity for the best sorts of trash.

Born and raised in Illinois, Katie currently lives in Connecticut with her stupendous, half-human half-neanderthal husband and their dopey boxer dog. She graduated magna cum laude from Connecticut College in 2012, with a bachelor’s degree in Chinese language and literature and a minor in history.

Interview with a Cover Designer!

Who hasn’t bought a book based solely on the cover design? Go into a bookstore and it’s almost like entering an art gallery. Covers entice us into the book, acting as alluring seductresses, promising us adventure or scares, inviting us to new worlds.

John Perrone Good Morning. It is 6 degrees here in Delaware/Canada. A bit nippy.Watched a movie last night, Sicario, decent but sort of left it hanging. Can anyone say series! Well the previews for up coming flicks are shown up front. 2 years ago read a novel by Mayberry called "Patient Zero". It rocked. Virus infected zommie, flesh eating, move like the flick "War World Z" and just a great read. Well....heard through IMDb and the like that a flick was coming out. It is in the can and saw the trailer last night. Stoked for seeing it.Lord of the Rings is a great series. Should read"The Hobbit". It sets it all up. But your choice. Keep Reading! Be Happy.
