Author Appreciation Week: Maria and Laura!

15 March 2010

Author Maria V. Snyder is one of my most favorite authors because of her amazing Poison Study trilogy! I've been extremely privileged to have already interviewed her, check out out interview here!
About Poison Study:
Choose: A quick death or slow poison ...
On the eve of her execution for murder, Yelena Zaltana is offered an incredible reprieve - on the condition that she becomes the food taster for the military leader of Ixia, Commander Ambrose. Avoiding poison is the least of her troubles, however ... General Brazell, father of the man she killed, has vowed bloody revenge; she's beginning to have feelings for her captor, Valek; and someone is plotting the downfall of the current regime. In a desperate race against time, Yelena must learn to control the growing magical talent withinn her and master the demons of her past. The Commander's life, the future of Ixia and all those she loves depend on it ...

My favorite cover art! Australians, you have talent!

I've also been privileged to have already had Laura Resau visit! Here's the interview I did with her!
I enjoyed her book, Red Glass, very much!

One night Sophie, her mother, and her stepfather are called to a hospital where Pablo, a six year old Mexican boy, is recovering from dehydration. Pablo was carrying the business card of Sophie's stepfather - but he doesn't recognize the boy. Crossing the border into Arizona with seven other Mexicans and a guide, Pablo and his parents faced such harsh conditions that the boy is the only survivor. Pablo comes to live with Sophie, her parents, and Sophie's aunt Dika, a refugee from the war in Bosnia. Sophie loves Pablo - her Principito, or Little Prince - but after a year, Sophie's parents are able to contact Pablo's extended family in Mexico, and Sophie, Dika, and Dika's new boyfriend and his son must travel with Pablo to his hometown so that he can make a heart-wrenching decision. Sophie has always been afraid of everything: car wrecks, cancer, becoming an orphan herself. But traveling with Dika, Pablo, Mr. Lorenzo, and Angel - people who have suffered losses beyond Sophie's imaginings - changes her perception of danger. Sophie feels a strong connection to Angel, but she fears losing him almost as much as she enjoys their time together. When a tragic accident forces Sophie to take a dangerous journey, she recognizes that life is beautiful even in the midst of death - and that love is worth the risk of losing.
