Announcing Robin Wasserman author of THE WAKING DARK to #ATBF13! Check out our exclusive interview with our Teen Press Corp.
In your opinion, what is the greatest mystery of all time?
I would kill to know what happened to the Roanoke Colony
What is one book that you wish you had written?
THE MIXED-UP FILES OF MRS. BASIL E. FRANKWEILER by E. L. Konigsburg
Do you want to ride a mechanical bull while you visit Austin?
Thanks to an adolescent case of scoliosis, I am technically now the bionic woman, and steel spinal rods don’t mix well with mechanical bulls. Otherwise (easy for me to say), that would be a loud and unabashed (and surely ill-advised) YES.

About THE WAKING DARK:
They called it the killing day. Twelve people dead, all in the space of a few hours. Five murderers: neighbors, relatives, friends. All of them so normal. All of them seemingly harmless. All of them now dead by their own hand . . . except one. And that one has no answers to offer the shattered town. She doesn’t even know why she killed—or whether she’ll do it again.
Something is waking in the sleepy town of Oleander’s, Kansas—something dark and hungry that lives in the flat earth and the open sky, in the vengeful hearts of upstanding citizens. As the town begins its descent into blood and madness, five survivors of the killing day are the only ones who can stop Oleander from destroying itself. Jule, the outsider at war with the world; West, the golden boy at war with himself; Daniel, desperate for a different life; Cass, who’s not sure she deserves a life at all; and Ellie, who believes in sacrifice, fate, and in evil. Ellie, who always goes too far. They have nothing in common. They have nothing left to lose. And they have no way out. Which means they have no choice but to stand and fight, to face the darkness in their town—and in themselves.
Mark your calendars for September 28th and join us at the Austin Convention Center!
