The author I chose this quarter for my IR assignment is Claudia Gray. I picked this author because i enjoyed reading one of her books, which was “Defy The Stars”, and i wanted to read the sequel and write an essay on it. I’d have to say that their primary work would be the entire “Defy The Stars” series. It didn’t really impact my decision of doing this author. I kinda had it set in my mind that she was the author I wanted to write my essay on. I’ve only read the two books that are in the Defy The Stars series (the third one hasnt come out yet), so these are two of the interesting books i have read, and an interesting looking book i haven’t read from her yet would be “A Thousand Pieces Of You”. What’s most interesting about all of these books combined is that they’re always breaking stereotypes and cliches. About Claudia gray, i know that shes still alive, and that she has worked on a few Star Wars novels.
