Bernadette Lamb is an author and illustrator based in St. Louis, Missouri. Her work for young people often deals with relational healing, the fantastical, and the complicated business of growing up. Like the keeper of a lighthouse, she wants to guide her readers to shore. When she’s not telling stories, you’ll probably find her re-watching The Incredibles or in a thrift store searching for the latest addition to her library.
Featuring short story UNFAMILIAR STARS:
Once upon a time, Beauty met a Beast. Only this time, they’re stuck on a spaceship together.
Almost-seventeen-year-old Trin didn’t sign up to be kidnapped. In the far reaches of the Korez system, she is forced by her captor, Mildar, to find a cure for his deadly disease—but unfortunately she is only a junior scientist, and he is an enemy of her people.
Months from home on a ship without a warp drive, Trin must find a way to escape or risk die trying...that is, if she doesn’t fall in love first.
