Patty Blount grew up quiet and a bit invisible in Queens, NY, but found her voice in books. Today, she writes smart and strong characters willing to fight for what’s right. She’s the award-winning author of edgy, realistic, gut-wrenching contemporary and young adult romance. Still a bit introverted, she gets lost often, eats way too much chocolate, and tends to develop mad, passionate crushes on fictional characters. Let’s be real; Patty’s not nearly as cool as her characters, but she is a solid supporter of women’s rights and loves delivering school presentations.

Patty is best known for her internet issues novels, SEND, a 2012 Junior Library Guild Fall Pick and TMI, a 2014 Watty winner, and her #MeToo novels, including SOME BOYS, a 2015 C

Hi, Jerica,

I love to write, too! The best advice I can give you is to read everything you can get your hands on. That always inspires me. I frequently come up with my ideas after reading something and saying to myself, "Wouldn't it have been cool if..." and then writing that IF part myself. Write the stories that scare you, write the stories you want to read. Join a writing group, too. It's an essential skill for authors to know how to accept critique feedback. (less)

It's Banned Book Week!

I am completely against book bans in any form. Parents have the right to determine what's appropriate for THEIR and only THEIR children to read, not all of us.

SOMEONE I USED TO KNOW was banned in a Florida school district and it just tortures me. I've had so many readers -- male readers, too! tell me how the novel helped them understand a complicated issue a bit more clearly.

I hope you'll join m Read more of this blog post »

Not a comedy yet there were some truly funny lines throughout Tawna Fenske's latest novel. In fact, I'd say this book has it all. Hot hero, suspense, a mystery whose culprit was not who I expected it to be, romance, and emotion in truck loads.

SEP never fails!

There’s just something special about her novels and I’d love to tell you what it is so I could put it in my own novels, but I can’t.

It’s magic. Susan Elizabeth philips is pure magic.
