Grow Wings: Laini Taylor
Laini Taylor, the author of Faeries of Dreamdark: Blackbringer. I loved this book, the story of Magpie, a kick-ass faerie living among crows and fighting a terrible devil to keep the dark from swallowing the world.
Two new books releasing :
Faeries of Dreamdark: Silksinger (available September 17, 2009)
Lips Touch (available October 2009)
In addition to writing, Laini is also a talented artist and the inventor of Laini Ladies. The collection consists of assorted ornaments, cards, and bookmarks adorned with beads, ribbon, and wire featuring quotes designed to inspire and motivate. (I have the Books Lady with the Louisa May Alcott quote hanging by my computer.)
Laini is also a new mom. Little Clementine was born on August 9, 2009. She has reddish-brown hair like her dad (from what I can tell from the pictures) and not the bright pink of her mom's lovely locks. Maybe the pink will grow in when she's a little older.
