Cynthia Leitich Smith

Cynthia Leitich Smith's website had been redesigned. Click over and take a look! I'd forgotten just how much good content Cynthia has at her site. I think my favorite part of the site is the Bibliographies, including everything from Asian American children's and young adult books to grandparents in books to war and peace.

Can you guess my problem with these lists including Cynthia's favorite YA reads?

Yep, you're right. I get sidetracked with me, me, me and begin counting how many I read and then wanting to put the others on hold. (If I counted correctly, Cynthia has 102 titles and I've read 34 of them.)

Why I like this website: well, it has everything an author website should. There is information about Cynthia and her books, including contact information and information on visits and talks. Because Cynthia blogs (see below), there is also always up to date information on authors and books and Cynthia herself. Finally, Cynthia also has great resources for children's and young adult literature.

Other links: in addition to the website, Cynthia has two blogs, cynsations ("quirky, thoughtful, angsty, joyous musings on all things life and book from a writer who finds her heroes in the sunshine and in the shadows", which is where you can find some amazing interviews with authors) and spookycyn ("author Cynthia Leitich Smith on the fangs-friendly side of gothic fantasy, horror, comedy, mystery, romance, suspense and all blessings Texana").

The new website was designed by Lisa Firke of hit those keys.
