Author Love #15: Courtney Allison Moulton

Author Love is a meme we came up with. There are so many authors and books out there that we love so much and want the world to know about them. If you want to play along all you have to do is pick one of your favorite authors. Write what you like about them and/or their books. You can also include an author bio and synopsis of their book if you want.

My pick this week is: Courtney Allison Moulton

Bio from website:
I was born in Austin, Texas on August 18, 1986 and grew up in Michigan. In the first few years of my life, my family bounced around several states until we finally settled in mid-Michigan. I was a Girl Scout who dabbled in gymnastics and volleyball until I discovered horseback riding and it quickly consumed my heart and soul. When I discovered the Goosebumps books in the third grade, I decided I wanted to be RL Stine when I grew up. I own a horse (a Swedish warmblood mare named Pia) and my passion is hunter/jumpers. My other passion is photography, and if you don't see me on a horse, you will probably see me with a camera in my face. I collect 1980's My Little Ponies and Breyer model horses, own over 400 movies, love playing Pokemon and MarioKart, and dream about sneaking into the polar bear exhibit at the zoo some day. When I was sixteen, I wrote a one-act play about violent vampires for my creative writing class that became my first novel. For NaNoWriMo in November 2008, I wrote ANGELFIRE and signed with literary agent Elizabeth Jote of Objective Entertainment in February of 2009. In November 2009, we sold the trilogy to Katherine Tegen Books, an imprint of HarperCollins. I am now represented by Rosemary Stimola of the Stimola Literary Studio.

I chose Courtney Allison for author love this week for many reasons. First her books are amazing. I could reread Angelfire and Wings of the Wicked again and again (or just the cute parts which I do read again and again) and I can't wait for Shadows in the Silence. Second she's hilarious. In vlogs, at the signing I went to, on Twitter, even her writing makes me laugh out loud. Third her obsession with horses is pretty cool because horses are awesome. Lastly curly girls for the win :). All in all Courney Allison Moulton is one of my favorite authors and I hope she continues to write after the Angelfire series so I can read all of her books.



  1. I remember not even knowing about Courtney Allison Moulton when I went to her signing, but now I love her so much! <3 I really need to pick up Wings of the Wicked, it looks really great! And I NEED to know what happens next. Fabulous pick Marissa! <3

    1. I know right!? I had seen her books before but I didn't plan on reading them and now I don't know what I was thinking. I loved Wings of the Wicked even more but at least the wait will be less for you. Thanks Aneeqah :) -M
