About Peni

I write books for young people and live in San Antonio in a house I hope to have fixed up in my lifetime. The 12 books I've published in the last 20 yeras are primarily mystery and fantasy, with a couple of contemporary outliers. A state award or two, a few genre nominations; I do all right; but you're only as good as your next book.

Peni, I wanted to leave this message on your blog, but am always stopped by the Google sign up/in line. I don't know if I have a Google account separate from my Google check-out account (for selling my e-writing book.) Oh, here's the message. It's past my bedtime.
Exciting! I wish I could... more

LOL!!! Peni, your comment on the Hunger Game series is hysterical! (And you've made me so happy that I've waited. )

Now, let me ask you about the Queens Thief series. Did you like the first book better than the following ones, or vice-versa?
Comment by Pam T on 3/30/2010 at 1:02 PM:
Let me know what you think about "Conspiracy of Kings", Peni. (And I didn't read Catching Fire yet. Waiting until right before "Mockingjay" comes out)

Hi Peni! Thanks for the NYT cheers. I was so incredibly shocked. And yes, progress in fresh directions and all that. Keep in touch!
