C. J. Milbrandt is a mildly eccentric lady with a houseful of books and a headful of stories. She’s an author with more than a decade of experience. And while she’s always been an old-fashioned gal, she’s not afraid of new things … or zany plans. Meadowsweet began as a personal writing challenge. In fact, the entire Galleries of Stone trilogy was written on the fly, posted to her other blog in three hundred and sixty-six daily installments during 2012. Completely crazy. Entirely satisfying.

  1. Hello,

    This is Rebecca Bussey over at Harmony Elementary. I am getting contacting you about the Author’s Fair. Is there anything I can relay to the 4th and 5th grade teachers to help your day go smoothly. Please let me know. I am also getting the exact number of students and should send that to you be the end of today. However, we roughly have about 180 4th and 5th graders.

    Thank you
