Cornelia Funke (International)

Cornelia Funke started as a children’s book illustrator, but started writing when she discovered that telling her own stories was more fun than illustrating other people’s. Cornelia is the internationally best-selling and award-winning author of the Inkheart fantasy trilogy, as well as more than 40 other books. The Inkheart trilogy was named by the US National Education Association as one of the 100 best books for children. Her most recent books, Reckless and Fearless, are for older children and teenagers. A native of Germany, she lives in Los Angeles with her family and a crazy dog named Luna.
