Author Crush: Julie Kagawa

Crushed on by Shannon, on September 6, 2012, in Author Crush / 0 Comments

Some books you read and they are good but you put them back on the shelf and don’t think much about them again. Other books you devour, immediately tell your friends about, and stay up to the wee hours of the morning until your eyes cross over in a desperate attempt to get to the last page. That was what happened when I first read the Iron King by Julie Kagawa. I stumbled upon the book randomly having not heard anything about the series previously. I just knew I wanted something different after all the vampire heavy books that had been filling up my i-pad. Well, I was instantly hooked on this fae filled masterpiece.  So who is Julie Kagawa besides the clever creator behind one of my favorite series? It turns out she is also an avid book lover and passionate animal lover, having turned her love of animals into a profession as a dog trainer while waiting for her writing career to take off. In fact, Julie’s own menagerie of pets include two dogs and one cat! In addition to a love of animals, Julie is also a self professed gamer and blogger.  Julie currently lives in Kentucky with her husband and beloved animals. Her latest release, a post apocalyptic vampire tome called The Immortal Rules is out now and most excitingly recently had the film rights optioned by Palomar Pictures.
