Meet Poison Author Bridget Zinn


Typically, when we host a book of the month, we ask the author for an exclusive Q&A or a guest post. Sometimes both. Sadly, we’re unable to do that with Poison, because author Bridget Zinn passed away in 2011 — two years before her book’s publication. However, we still want you to get to know a bit more about Bridget.

Here is more information about Bridget from her website, which is maintained by her husband, Barrett:

About Bridget Zinn

bridget zinnBridget grew up in Wisconsin. She went to the county fair where she met the love of her life, Barrett Dowell. They got married right before she went in for exploratory surgery which revealed she had colon cancer. They christened that summer the “summer of love” and the two celebrated with several more weddings. Bridget continued to read and write until the day she died. Her last tweet was “Sunshine and a brand new book. Perfect.”

poisonBridget wanted to make people laugh and hoped readers would enjoy spending time with the characters she created. As a librarian/writer she loved books with strong young women with aspirations. She also felt teens needed more humorous reads. She really wanted to write a book with pockets of warmth and happiness and hoped that her readers’ copies would show the watermarks of many bath time reads.
