Writers and Dinosaurs: Jennifer Ziegler

Jennifer Ziegler walks Picotyrannus, a small, plush relative of Tyrannosaurus rex.
Jennifer Ziegler is the author of ALPHA DOG and HOW NOT TO BE POPULAR, a 2009 Texas Lone Star book.  Her newest novel, SASS AND SERENDIPITY, available in July 2011, is a story of sisterhood and sibling rivalry, with a bit of Jane Austen.

Jennifer was born in Temple, Texas and spent most of her early childhood in Anchorage, Alaska.  She came to Austin to attend the University of Texas and never left.

For the 2011-2012 school year, Jennifer and Cynthia Leitich Smith (author of the Tantalize series) are offering a joint presentation titled "From Classics to Contemporary."

The authors will discuss how they were inspired by Jane Austen and Bram Stoker, respectively; how Stoker's and Austen's themes are still relevant to teens/YAs today; the ongoing conversation of books over the generations; and much more.
