Meet AMA-CON 2013 Panelist A.G. Howard

Anita G. Howard
Anita Grace Howard is the author of “Splintered,” and will be part of the “Twist on the Classics” panel with David Wenzel and Orpheus Collar.  “Splintered” is a popular YA novel inspired by “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” with a dark twist.

Anita lives in the Texas panhandle, and is most at home weaving the melancholy and macabre into settings and scenes, twisting the expected into the unexpected. She’s inspired by all things flawed, utilizing the complex loveliness of human conditions and raw emotions to give her characters life, then turning their world upside down so the reader’s blood will race.
