Meet YA Author – Mindy McGinnis

Today on Paws 4 Thought we welcome Mindy McGinnis, eclectic YA author and kitty-lover!

Hi Mindy, so happy to have you here today. Tell us a little bit about yourself:

Mindy

I write across multiple genres – everything from post-apocalyptic survival to fantasy to contemporary and mystery. I have lived in Ohio my whole life and absolutely love it here.

So when did you first start writing?

I wrote when I was a child, experimentally. I never finished a novel until I was in my mid-20s.

Who are your favorite authors?

I grew up reading Stephen King. Some of my more recent favorites would be Frances Hardinge and McKenzie Lee.

What inspires you to write? 

I’m fortunate in that ideas just seem to fall out of the sky. They can occur out of nowhere, and I don’t question that.

Which is favorite title you have published so far and why?

Sea  Earth

Probably my fantasy titles, GIVEN TO THE SEA and GIVEN TO THE EARTH. Fantasy is by far the hardest genre I’ve ever tackled. The world building is key, and I found that executing that took every ounce of talent I have.

If you could hang out with one of your characters who would you choose and where would the two of you go?

Probably Lynn from NOT A DROP TO DRINK and we would just hang out in the woods.

Drink  Dust

What are you currently working on?

I’m in between books, having just turned in the copyedits for my Winter 2019 release, HEROINE.

What do you like to do to relax?

It’s so rare for me to get to do so, but… reading.

Tell us about your kitties? I hear you have quite a few?

Kitty3

I have NINE cats, if you can believe that. I had the normal amount of cats (four) until one of the farm kitties abandoned a litter and I ended up bottle raising a group of five. You can’t do that and then “find a good home.” So yeah… now I have nine cats.

Friday Fiction – Cecilia’s Tale

SuperciciResized

The tiny kitten mewed in the clutches of the evil Dogzilla the Dastardly. He had given up all hope of ever seeing his food bowl again.

But what was that? Flying through the air was Super Cici to the rescue. Faster than a speeding furball, she swooped down and scooped up the kitten from Dogzilla’s terrible jaws.

Yet another amazing rescue by the fabulous Super Cici.

Cecilia yawned. She opened her eyes and stretched. That had been an awesome dream, but now she was hungry.

N is for Night and No Place Like Earth – Blogging from A to Z

n

Hi everyone,

Did you have a good weekend? Debbie had an exciting one as she got to go see Hamilton this weekend with her son, Joey at the Fabulous Fox Theatre in St. Louis.

Today we’re celebrating the letter N with two awesome books. The first features a word that is dear to my heart, Earth. In NO PLACE LIKE EARTH by Lori Fettner and illustrated by Michael Fettner, we follow a child’s dream on a journey through space.

41tcfgvkyhl

The child looks for a place to land while exploring each planet, but some are too hot, some are too cold, and some are just made of liquid and gas. Only planet Earth is just right.

Fun rhyming text introduces children to each planet and basic facts about it. The text is accompanied by stunning images of a rocket traveling through the solar system, interspersed by close up images of each planet in order.

While each planet is amazing in its own way, there is only one we can call home. If parents choose, this can be the start to a conversation about how we can take better care of our planet.

Pick up your copy on Amazon in Kindle or paperback. 

Next up we have SHIMMER: SONGS OF NIGHT by Raven Howell  (Author) and‎ Carina Povarchik (Illustrator).

Love the kitty on the cover here. They’re obviously a fantastic artist as the moon painting this awesome NIGHTtime scene.

For a child, the time between sundown and sunup can be an enchanting world of mystery and fun, a time when fairies dance, night creatures creak and hum, and stars reign over all. What are a child’s thoughts when he or she hears the evening’s first cricket, has a sleepover with friends, or looks up at the stars and wonders, “What’s up there?”

Pick up your copy in hardback or paperback on Amazon.

Come back tomorrow when we’ll meet a space explorer called OLLIE and an ORANGUTAN.

See ya,

Adana
