Corina Quinn put down roots in New Orleans, where pretty strings of beads dangle from the oak trees; the sweltering air is full of real magic called joie de vivre; and you never know what might happen next. When a turn of fate sent her to the Netherlands for a spell, she became a NOLA girl at large and a fish out of water. She enjoys eating ice cream, collecting curiosities, and spending time with horses, but more than anything else, she loves to tell a good story. THE FIRE-BREATHING SEA SNAKE OF JELLYFISH BAY is her middle grade debut. She wrote it with a splash of sea magic and a sprinkle of starfish wishes. When you meet her, be sure and ask if she has a seashell in her pocket. The answer will be yes.
