In 2009 I had just finished this little verse novel of mine and was finding my way around the children’s literature community on-line. I came across a post about a new author named Bridget Zinn. In the course of one week, she’d signed with agent Michael Stearns, gotten married, and been diagnosed with stage four colon cancer.
In 2010, I learned Bridget was also an Apocalypsie, a debut author whose book was slated to come out in 2012. And in May 2011 I read these words from Michel Stearns.
Last month, I learned her novel POISON, was finally ready to release. I’m happy to join in the celebration, honoring a person who, though I never met personally, has been a light in my writing life these last four years.
Here’s to you, Bridget! So glad this day has come.
Sixteen-year-old Kyra, a highly-skilled potions master, is the only one who knows her kingdom is on the verge of destruction—which means she’s the only one who can save it. Faced with no other choice, Kyra decides to do what she does best: poison the kingdom’s future ruler, who also happens to be her former best friend.
