Hi, this month's author trivia is about an author I've only just recently discovered and everything I know about her personality so far, I really like. Her books are pretty amazing too but I like the author because she makes me laugh. And that's always a good thing. :)
So, here are my clues:
* She grew up in Pasedena, CA.
* She graduated from John Muir High School.
* She dropped out of college
* Her latest book is out in the UK this month (April 08)
* Her first book (2005) was inspired by Lucky Charms cereal, non-fat milk and SHAPE magazine.
* The first book she ever read cover to cover was Alice Walker's THE COLOR PURPLE.
* She's attending the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books
* Her current book is about a pastry chef who is the daughter of a living legend novelist...
Can you guess the author and the title of her latest book?
