Aprilynne Pike / Okay! I'm frickin' Here!!:D
« on: June 05, 2009, 05:12:23 PM »
Look! Look! I finally got my act together and an internet connection to boot and am introducing myself!


Okay, I am the female alter-ego of Brandon Sanderson!!!

Not really.:)

Okay, I'm Aprilynne Pike (although I do KNOW Brandon ;)) and I write YA fantasy, specifically, a series about faeries beginning with my debut, WINGS, which was released last month and has spent four weeks on the NYT Bestsellers list so far. (Come on, you know I HAD to throw that part in.;)) I currently live in Phoenix, AZ with my husband and three kids, aged almost 2,4, and 6. My husband just graduated from law school so when we go to parties we tell people, "Hi, we're the Pikes, he's a lawyer, she's an author, which means that one of us makes up fantastic tales for a living and the other one writes books." (Yes, thank you, thank you, I'll be here all night.;))

Hmmm, what else? I am a voracious reader. I read a bit of everything, but since I write YA I do read that genre more often than anything else. I'm quite a gym rat and love singing, especially Broadway music. I'm also a doula and childbirth educator and wear a pendant of a pregnant woman that everyone always thinks is a penguin.

Yeah, that's pretty much me. I just barely moved and released a book all at the same time which is why I've been so absent, but I should be around more now.:)

Thanks for having me!
