About the Author

Karri Justina Shea is a writer, teacher, and author of the upcoming novella The Con, a tale of love and wizard rock for YA readers. Her geek cred includes authoring the popular Starship fanfic Learning to Dance, though she is definitely not cool enough to be in a wizard rock band. Karri has travelled the world seeking stories and magic and currently lives in Prince Edward Island, Canada with her soon-to-be family of three. Karri’s first full-length novel, Bent, will be released in 2013.

Karri Justina Shea writes with flair and colour. It's a wonderful book about a genre that is not well enough known. I personally love wrock and it's a really fun storyline, but what I love most about it is that you don't really have to understand the fandom references to follow the plot, and the characters are all so original and relatable and generally amazing.

This is a fantastic book for both old and new readers of Ms. Shea's work. I often cannot find books that talk about subjects like fan conventions and wizard rock, both subjects close to my heart. While people who do not know about or like these topics will find the story confusing a little as there are a multitude of references that you must either already know or Google to find out about, the plot past that is quite enjoyable. I usually do not like novellas because I feel the length can not flesh out multi-dimensional characters and a good plot, but I ended up loving the book. The characters are complex and you can quickly and easily emphasize with them. "The Con" is equal parts emotional, humorous, romantic and set in the crazy, amazing, nerdy world of fandoms.

I absolutely adore Karri Justina Shea's writing. She definitely caters to the more geeky crowd, but even non-geeks would enjoy her writing. Entertaining and really just lovely.
