Biography (from her website): Kelly is an author, teacher, and mom. She has written several short stories for grown-ups, and thirteen high-interest nonfiction books for children. Prior to her life as a writer, she worked as a waitress, a teacher, a secretary, a park ranger, an activist, a janitor, a coffee barrista, and a phone book delivery girl. The sum of these experiences has prepared her for exactly nothing - aside from building stories, which she has been doing happily for the last few years. She lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with her three brilliant children, architect husband, and emotionally-unstable dog.

Iron Hearted Violet
Signed by the author on the title page. Ages 8 and up. Princess Violet is plain, reckless, and possibly too clever for her own good. She and her friend Demetrius find a forbidden book in a hidden room, telling the story of the Nybbas, an evil being imprisoned in their world. The story can't really be true - but then the whispers start. Violet and Demetrius, along with an ancient dragon, may hold the key to the Nybbas' triumph - or its demise. After all, stories make their own rules.

It's up to Jack to figure out why - but to do that, he'll have to believe that magic is real, and has something to do with him.
