Lana Krumwiede began her writing career by creating stories and poems for publications such as Highlights, High Five, Spider, Babybug, The Friend, and Chicken Soup for the Child's Soul. Her first novel, Freakling (Candlewick, 2012), tells the story of Taemon, a boy who lives in a society where everyone has telekinetic powers. Lana has attempted telekinesis many times, particularly when it comes to household chores, but she could never make it work. Freakling was named a finalist for SCBWI’s Crystal Kite Member’s Choice Award and an honor book for the International Reading Association’s Intermediate Fiction Award. Taemon’s story continues in subsequent books in The Psi Chronicles, Archon (2013) and True Son (2015). Lana lives in Richmond with her husband and daughter.
