  1. Kelly Meding’s new work sounds great. The name Marie Lu sounds familiar – would it be a pen name for an already established author?

  2. Hi Tez–wow, thank you so much for mentioning LEGEND in your blog! 🙂

    (This is a really late reply–but for Mardel, maybe you heard of the name ‘Marie Lu’ from a brand of animal crack-like cookies? I’ve had quite a few people tell me that…. 🙂 )
