One of my favorite authors Robin LaFevers is wearing two hats these days. Up to now, she’s most well known for the middle grade Theodosia series and Nathanial Fludd, Beastologist series. These are great books for the middle of the middle grade readers.
But in April her latest book, a YA, will be released. His Fair Assassin, Book 1: Grave Mercy, is a story about assassin nuns, no less!
I’ve always thought that MG and YA are totally different beasts, even though they are often lumped together in that infinitely amorphous MG/YA category. The readers in each age group are so completely different that it takes two different head-spaces to write for them.
I’m so impressed how Robin can switch hats. She talks a bit about writing GRAVE MERCY here:
Grave Mercy debuts in April and I can’t wait!
The other thing I should mention is that Robin does collage as part of her process (I love collage). You can see her collage for GRAVE MERCY here.
