Author of Keeper of the Lost Cities and the Sky Fall series
Bio: Shannon Messenger graduated from the USC School of Cinematic Arts where she learned--among other things--that she liked watching movies much better than making them. She also regularly eats cupcakes for breakfast, sleeps with a bright blue stuffed elephant named Ella, and occasionally gets caught talking to imaginary people. So it was only natural for her to write stories for children. She's the bestselling author of the middle grade series, Keeper of the Lost Cities, and the Sky Fall series for young adults. She lives in Southern California with her husband and an embarrassing number of cats.
