About the Author


Annette Curtis Klause is head of children's services at the Aspen Hill Community Library in Maryland. Born in Bristol, England, she now lives in Hyattsville, Maryland, with her husband and their cats. When she was young, Annette's daddy sat her on his lap and told her the plots of the best old horror movies. This seems to have made a strong impression. Annette Curtis Klause holds a BA in English literature and an MLS from the University of Maryland, College Park, but when excited, she still has a tendency to howl.
