Kirkland Ciccone has taken the Teen Reads Scene by storm, with his larger-than-life personality and punk rock-fuelled pop-art style giving him the edge he needed to grab attention. A favourite with librarians and teen readers for his anarchic live events, Kirkland is in much demand. But what he does best is writing twisty, weird YA fiction for the freaks/geeks/punks/teens who want to read something a little bit quirkier than the usual fare. His fiction is crammed with memorable characters, spiky dialogue, and Kirkland's own observations. YA fiction gives Kirkland a chance to speak out about the world. His latest title is Glowglass - a tale about cults, poison and porridge!
