Maureen Johnson was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Like a lot of people who end up writing books, she was always reading. This paid off in the end, but also resulted in her not playing any sports, so she is spectacularly uncoordinated, and is easily injured by harmless household objects, like endtables.She studied writing and theatrical dramaturgy at Columbia University. Before she could spend all her days writing, Maureen served up hamburgers in the company of mad scientists and talking skeletons in New York, tended bar in Piccadilly Circus, nervously worked alongside live tigers in Las Vegas, and once got mixed up with the entire cast of a major West End musical.Maureen lives in New York City, and when she is not writing, spends her time in a relentless pursuit of the perfect cup of coffee. If you know where it is, get in touch with her at once.

Maureen Johnson has been on my radar for a couple of years now, ever since I read this manifesto post that she wrote about NOT BEING A BRAND. I read it and thought, yeah, this chick is awesome. I should read her books. Cut to: three years later. Better late than never, yes? Unfortunately, I don't ...

The Name of the Star is the final book I had to read for this year's Bood Magic Challenge. That means I read, or at least attempted, 12 books that you all voted for me to read last year. Woot. I have not read Maureen Johnson before this, though I have shelved her books for many years. To be honest ...
