Ali Cross, USA Today bestselling author of young adult fantasy, has always had a flare for the dramatic. As a child, she organized backyard performances of classic plays and musicals and even hosted tea parties for invisible friends and pets dressed in doll clothes. Her teens were a haze of boys, real-life drama, and music, so it really shouldn’t surprise anyone that the girl her family called a dreamer, ended up writing drama—with vampires, demons, and other supernatural creatures thrown in for fun.

Thanks for your question! I started writing in October, 2002. I remember when it was I started writing books exactly because we were on our way to enjoy a family weekend in the mountains. On the long drive up there, I said to my hubby, "Ya know, I've always wanted to write a book like The Fionavar Tapestry." I swear I didn't KNOW I wanted to do that until the words came out of my mouth, but I knew they were true! LOL (I'm an extrovert, and tend to do most of my thinking with my mouth, lol.) So right then, I knew I wanted to be an author, and I knew I had to be a GREAT author (like Guy Gavriel Kay, the author of the Fionavar Tapestry) because I wanted to move people like he does. I love you for asking a question! Thank you! <3 <3 (less)

Camp Legend is Legendary!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I absolutely loved this book! It's been a while since I read a middle grade, but after all the intensity and seriousness of adult books, it was refreshing to read something different. I wish I was better at remembering lines I loved, because there were many in this book. I loved the little lessons taught and learned, I loved the humor, just...a Read more of this blog post »
