Author Trivia - Lee Hyat

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am thankful for all the authors and readers who support this blog and with that in mind, I thought I'd do a fun Author Trivia contest.

I'm going to share some information about an author. If you can guess her name and the title of her book, please email me at totebag[at] with your answers and be sure to put Author Trivia in the subject heading.

At the end of this month, I'll pick 3 winners from everyone who answers correctly. The prize for each winner is a copy of the book. And everyone's entitled to play - even authors. (You were readers before you were authors so for my contests, it's all fair!)

Here are your clues:

1 -This author was born in the San Fernando Valley in California.

2 - She studied British Literature at Pomona College

3 - At one point in her life she volunteered as an archeologist

4 - She earned her MA from Claremont Graduate University

5 - She's travelled around the world to places like India and Zimbabwe.

6 - She was a public high school teacher for six years.

7 - Her agent is Anna Ghosh.

8 - Her July 2007 release is a hardback historical fiction best seller.

9 - The title of her book consists of just one word.

10 - This is her debut novel.

Please don't post your answers here - it would ruin the fun for eveyrone else. Just email them to me at totebag[at]

Good luck!
