Books by Kelly Barnhill


 
 

If you'd like to order signed copies of her books, please mention that in the Special Instructions when you check out. (Please note: the individual book listings below indicate whether we have signed copies or not. If it doesn't say signed, we do not have signed copies of that particular title.)

Biography (from her website): Kelly Barnhill writes books. It is a strange job, but, to be fair, she is a strange woman, so perhaps it makes sense. She is a former teacher, former bartender, former waitress, former activist, former park ranger, former secretary, former janitor and former church-guitar-player. The sum of these experiences have prepared her for exactly nothing - save for the telling of stories, which she has been doing quite happily for some time now.

She has three completely fabulous children, an astonishingly talented husband (his name is Ted Barnhill and he designs beautiful and sustainable houses - including the one where her family lives - and he generally rules). She also teaches, freelances, volunteers, runs, canoes, camps, gardens (though badly), and hikes into the wilderness for days and days. She also bakes pie. It's a pretty good life, actually.

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.

The Mostly True Story of Jack
Signed by the author on the title page. Ages 8 and up. When Jack is sent to Hazelwood, Iowa, to live with his eccentric aunt and uncle, he expects a summer of boredom. But the people of Hazelwood have been waiting for him for a long time. He makes friends. The town bully beats him up. And the richest man in town begins to plot Jack's imminent demise. 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.
