Sarah Rees Brennan was born in Ireland by the sea, where she spent her schooldays secretly reading books rather than learning Irish. That paid off, as she is now the author of the Demon’s Lexicon trilogy, a series about attractive troubled brothers and all the fierce ladies and evil magicians they know. The first book in the series, The Demon’s Lexicon, received three starred reviews, was an ALA Top Ten Best Books of 2009, and was long-listed for the Carnegie Medal. Her next book, cowritten with Justine Larbalestier, comes out in 2012. For more information, visit Sarah at http://sarahreesbrennan.com.
