Fierce Reads winner & trivia

Congratulations the winner of the Fierce Reads giveaway...

won signed copies of Birthmarked, Prized, & Promised by Caragh M. O'Brien; The Shadow Society by Marie Rutkoski; Crewel by Gennifer Albin; & Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

And now, because I know you're all curious as to which of the author trivia was false...

(1) Caragh O'Brien came in third place in a state fencing competition.
(2) Leigh Bardugo almost died from being dared to eat an entire calla lily when she was 7.
(3) Gennifer Albin is afraid of going down escalators, especially with luggage.
(4) Marie Rutkoski has large sections of dialogue from The Princess Bride memorized.

It was the factoid about Leigh! She did not eat an entire calla lily and almost die, specifically when she was 7 years old. I was rather surprised by how many of you doubted Caragh's brief fencing background or Gennifer's fear of escalators. I think this just goes to show what good storytellers these ladies are...
