|Annette Curtis Klause
Annette was born in Bristol, England and moved to the United States when she was a teenager. She daydreamed constantly while growing up, and she turned some of those fantasies into stories and poems. Her first novel The Silver Kiss was inspired by vampire poems she wrote when she was fifteen years old. Annette’s other novels are Alien Secrets, Blood and Chocolate, and Freaks: Alive, on the Inside! Blood and Chocolate was turned into a movie by MGM. Her most recent short story, “Elf Blood” appears in Welcome to Bordertown, edited by Ellen Kushner and Holly Black. Annette, a retired children’s librarian, currently lives in the Maryland suburbs with her husband and five cats.
