April 2017~ Guess what? I’m now the author of more than one YA fantasy series! Here’s the announcement from April 20th’s Publishers Weekly:

“HarperCollins/Katherine Tegen has bought Kathryn Purdie’s new YA fantasy adventure series, Bone Grace—in which star-crossed lovers Ailith, a magical siren and soul-ferrier, and Bastien, her soulmate who’s hell-bent on avenging his murdered father, are fated to kill one another. Book one is scheduled for fall 2019.”
