Once upon a time, Alexis was your typical high school outcast: pink hair, bad attitude, unapologetic loner. Until the day her little sister Kasey made friends with the wrong ghost, and Alexis had to step up and do battle with an evil supernatural force. That set in motion a series of events that would forever change Alexis’s life–and the lives of the people she loves–as she learned that, no matter how bad they seem… things can always get worse.
BAD GIRLS DON'T DIE:
FROM BAD TO CURSED:
AS DEAD AS IT GETS:
Katie Alender (rhymes with “calendar”!) grew up in South Florida, where she attended high school at the Palm Beach County School of the Arts, studying Communication Arts. After graduating, she studied film at the Florida State University Film School, and then moved to Los Angeles, where she worked in TV development and production for several years, including a long stint producing dog shows for Animal Planet.
In her spare time, she enjoys writing, reading, sewing (especially quilts), practicing yoga, photography, visiting friends’ blogs, and hanging out with her family.
Her first brush with publication was in high school, when her article “So You Want to Live On Mars?” was published in Sassy magazine. In 2009, her first book, BAD GIRLS DON’T DIE, was published by Hyperion, followed by two sequels.
She is represented by Matthew Elblonk of DeFiore and Company and is a member of SCBWI (the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) and ITW (International Thriller Writers).
She does not like scary books or movies, but apparently the books she writes are considered scary by many people. She is also a huuuuge fan of talking about herself in the third person.
