Someone's Secret (Guess Who!)

Wanna hear a secret? Critically acclaimed YA authors are spilling their guts all this month at Bildungsroman. Today's guest says:

"I was never supposed to be a writer. In fact, growing up, I thought I hated reading and English class and generally anything to do with language -- except for French. Instead, I was math and science girl. I was going to be a marine biologist or an environmental biologist or a doctor or a veterinarian. Even a lawyer, an architect, or a school teacher. But never, ever a writer."

So who surprised herself by becoming a writer? Here are two hints:
* Her newest book stars a teenage mermaid.
* Her initials create a well-known acronym. So does the title of her first book.

Think you know who it is? Leave your guesses in the comments below! Then bookmark the schedule of secrets and check back throughout the month to learn her identity and discover more secrets from other authors.

Identity revealed! More than one of you guessed correctly: It's Tera Lynn Childs, aka TLC. Her new novel, Forgive My Fins, is narrated by a teenage mermaid. Oh. My. Gods. (aka OMG) was her first novel, followed by the sequel, Goddess Boot Camp.
