About K.N. Steuber
Kirsten Steuber is an author, illustrator, and lover of the silly and improbable. She was a staff writer for the college humor site, The Blacksheep Online, while attending the University of Virginia. There, she performed on the improvisational comedy team, a passion she continues to pursue to this day. The wild paths of the Blue Ridge mountains have inspired countless adventures in her own mind, one of which she is pleased to share in Adventures in Mangia: The Quest for the Elder Taco, her first novel. She currently lives in Philadelphia with her husband and two dogs, Merlin and Gwen.
Steve and his loyal jalapeno, Peno, must go on a quest to the Peaks of DeGallo, where legend tells of an ancient, marvelously fresh protector, The Elder Taco, who might be Mangia's only hope. Will they find the Elder Taco before it's too late, and Mangia and all its foodsfolk are rotted forever?
This fully illustrated novel is the first in a series, The Adventures in Mangia, which introduces readers to the epic battle of fresh versus foul that is baked into the fate of the entire island of Mangia. Ancient powers will collide as the Elder Foods aid their beloved citizens in a quest to defeat the foul Cuisines of Corruption, who won't stop until they've rotted everything and everyone in their path.
