Weekly Geeks No. 23

This week’s theme: Fun Facts About Authors.

Since I'm currently reading The Truth About Forever, I have decided to choose Sarah Dessen as the writer about whom I'll post.

(Collage from a post on Dessen's "latest news" blog.)

  • Born June 6, 1970.

  • Lives in North Carolina.

  • Graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill, with a degree in English.

  • Mother of Sasha Clementine, who was born September 2, 2007.

  • Her ninth YA novel to be released June 2009.

  • Enjoys shopping at The Gap.

  • Fan of UNC basketball.

  • Voted for Barack Obama in the recent election.

  • Official site.

Other Weekly Geeks' author fun facts:


  1. another new author for me today - thanks for the links

  2. One of the 9th graders on the retreat I was helping lead this weekend was reading Just Listen. Funny to come home to your post on the author I was going to look into when I got home!

  3. I have heard of this author, but not read anything by her!

  4. I agree - it is great to surf around the pages of other Weekly Geeks and find new authors. I have not heard about this one either, and I don't read much YA, but that can easily change I guess. Thanks for an interesting post.


  5. I've not heard of this author but thanks for sharing with us! Will have to check out her books. :)

  6. I really need to read something by her! Thanks for the reminder. :)

  7. I've seen this author but not read her. Great montage!
