Beschreibung bei Amazon Alex Flinn is a renowned American writer of science fiction, romance, fantasy, and young adult novels. She is popular for writing the Breathing Underwater series, the Kendra Chronicles series, and several independent books.
So far, she has penned 12 books and an original e-book. They have been translated into more than 20 foreign languages. She credits her upbringing for influencing her interest in stories about witches.
When Flinn was 5 years old, her mother suggested her to become an author. Considering the numerous poems she wrote in her school days, she thinks that she was destined to find this path. All the poems she wrote as a child were sent to Cricket or Highlights magazine and each one of them received rejections. Flinn had collected as many rejection slips at the age of 7 as any other aspiring author at that time. At a very early age, she learned to read. She used to lag far behind the other students in her class.
It was her 2nd-grade teacher, who helped her to read and motivated her to keep trying to succeed. The teacher also gave Flinn an Ellen Tebbits novel, which made her even more excited. When Flinn graduated to middle school, her family relocated to Miami. Moving to a new location made it hard for her to make new friends. So, she used to spend most of her time reading books and writing stories.
However, she never completed any of her stories. The experience helped her become a keen observer. And by the time she reached high school, Flinn had made some good friends and was also involved in numerous arts programs. For some time, Flinn even studied opera in her college days. After college, she joined law school. It was her time at the law school that helped her finish her first book, Breathing Underwater, that deals with the dating violence problem.
Flinn based this novel on her own experience when she was an intern at the Office of the State Secretary and volunteered with battered ladies.
She conducted a survey during her internship and found that 27 percent of the girls were hit by their boyfriends.
Flinn made sure that she told their stories in her book in order to save other teenage girls from this common problem.
When the book came out, it attracted a lot of teenage readers and it made Flinn quite happy to know that she was able to influence a lot of readers through her writing.
She had already begun writing an early version of the book when she was in college. Flinn was able to get back to it only after she had her first daughter named Katie. Author Flinn is a self-taught writer. She visited the library and went through the books of her favorite young adult authors.
Over a period of time, Flinn honed her writing skills and chose to write her first full-length story when she became confident enough. Usually, Flinn writers her first drafts long-hand and then types them. She believes that she writes all her novels keeping in mind the young adult readers because she thinks she never got over with the idea of being a young adult.
In her mind, she still sees herself as a year-old girl. As of today, Flinn resides in Palmetto Bay, Miami. She loves to spend time with her loving husband named Eugene and beautiful daughters Meredith and Katherine. Flinn also has a great love for pets. She has several cats and dogs at her house.

Beastly (eBook, ePUB)
Plot[ edit ] Kyle Kingsbury is rich, handsome and popular; he is also selfish, shallow and cruel. He plays a mean practical joke on an outcast girl in his class. The girl is really a witch named Kendra in disguise. The witch then curses him for his cruelty. He is turned into a beast; however, because he performed a small act of kindness shortly before his transformation when he gave an unwanted rose corsage to a girl working a ticket booth, she gives him two years to break the spell, or remain a beast forever. The only way he can turn back to normal is if he truly loves a girl and gets her to love him in return, proving the love with a kiss.
