Amy Trueblood grew up in Southern California only ten minutes from Disneyland which sparked an early interest in storytelling.

Her debut, Nothing But Sky was a Spring 2018 Junior Library Guild selection. Her second novel, Across a Broken Shore, also a JLG selection, was recently selected by ALA as a 2020 Best Feminist Book in Children’s Literature and won the Gold Medal for Historical Fiction in the Independent Publisher Book Awards and the Moonbeam Children's Book Awards.

Fueled by iced tea and a good Spotify playlist, you can often find Amy settled in a quiet corner at her local coffee shop plotting her next book.

Usually if I give myself a little space, things will click into gear and I'll figure out why the scene isn't working. (less)

There is nothing better than having a small nugget of an idea and slowly letting it build until it is a full blown story. It's amazing to me how something so small can build into something beautiful.

Quite The Query – LAKESEDGE by Lyndall Clipstone (YA Fantasy)

 

 

In today’s Quite The Query, Lyndall Clipstone shares the query for her upcoming YA Fantasy, LAKESEDGE. I love the use of language in this query to set the dark tone and the opening lines grabbed me immediately.

There are few things eighteen-year-old Violeta Graceling fears— not even Rowan Sylvanan, the so-called Monster of Lakesedge. She doesn’t believe the superstitious rumors that he kil

The infant woke his mother at 4am and refused to go back to sleep. His mother was resigned to being awake all morning, but when she opened the cabinet, she discovered the coffee tin was empty.
Amy answered a question about Across a Broken Shore:
Across a Broken Shore by Amy Trueblood
Yes, there is a slight bit of romance. It is appropriate for readers 15+ due to some graphic medical content.
