Here's a funny little coincidence: The letters in "P.W. Catanese" can be rearranged to spell "Want escape?" And that's why people read books like these, isn't it?
Hello there, you wonderful readers. I'm P.W. Catanese, the author of the supernatural adventure "Donny's Inferno," the epic fantasy trilogy "The Books of Umber," and fairy tale-inspired novels including "The Thief and the Beanstalk" and "The Mirror's Tale."
If you're looking for stories that are exciting, sometimes scary, occasionally monstrous, and frequently funny, I'm your guy. I also like to include some thoughtfulness along with all the twists and surprises. If you're into that sort of thing. Officially my books are for ages 9 to 14 but I hear from readers of all ages, and I'm happy to say that teachers enjoy using my books in classrooms as well.
I love to hear from readers, so look me up on Facebook and Twitter and ask away. And remember, the kindest thing you can do for an author you enjoy is to recommend his or her books to a friend. Now grab a flashlight, get under the covers, and start reading.
