C. A. Pack is the author of the episodic YA fantasy seres, The Library of Illumination and can usually be found wandering around inside her imagination looking for fun things to write about. Some people may think that's a stupid place to hang out, but for her it's really quite pleasant.

But putting my own books aside, I would love to visit "The Great Gatsby" and experience one of the lavish parties at Gatsby's mansion in "West Egg." I would eavesdrop on the conversations, take note of women's fashion, and dance the night away—after I break away and take an unauthorized tour of the house. (less)

Chronicles The Library of Illumination (The Library of Illumination #1-5) by C.A. Pack Second Chronicles of Illumination by C.A. Pack
