Adrienne Kress

"With a crisp, engaging voice and sharp wit, Adrienne Kress is always a treat to read." - Kelley Armstrong, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

Adrienne Kress is a Toronto-born actor and author who loves to play make-believe. She also loves hot chocolate. And cheese. Not necessarily together.

April 2016 saw the release of HATTER MADIGAN: Ghost in the H.A.T.B.O.X., an exciting collaboration with NY Times bestselling author Frank Beddor (set in the same world as his Looking Glass Wars YA books). And next April she releases the first book in her new Middle Grade series: THE EXPLORERS (Delacorte, Random House).

And later this year her essay will appear alongside work by the likes of Margaret Atwood and Mariko Tamaki in the non-fiction anthology THE SECRET LOVES OF GEEK GIRLS (Dark Horse Press).

She is also the author of the award winning and internationally published children's novels ALEX AND THE IRONIC GENTLEMAN and TIMOTHY AND THE DRAGON'S GATE (Scholastic). Published around the world, ALEX won the Heart of Hawick Children's Book Award in the UK and was shortlisted for the Red Cedar. The sequel, TIMOTHY, was shortlisted for the Audie, Red Cedar and Manitoba Young Readers Choice Awards, and was optioned for film.

She has also published two YA novels: OUTCAST (Diversion Books), her quirky paranormal romance, and the Steampunk adventure THE FRIDAY SOCIETY (Penguin), released to a starred review from Quill and Quire and was shortlisted for The Quill Awards.

Adrienne is also an actor with an honours BA in theatre from the University of Toronto and is a graduate of LAMDA's post-graduate classical acting programme in the UK. Some of her recent theatre roles include Connie in COME BLOW YOUR HORN (Classic Theatre Festival), First Lady in A MASKED BALL (Canadian Opera Company), Alisa in SWOON! (nation.theatre), Ellie Powers in DUEL OF AGES (True Edge Productions), and Lady Capulet in ROMEO AND JULIET (Tempest Theatre Group). She can also be seen in the horror flicks THE DEVIL'S MILE (Grover's Mill) and WOLVES (directed by David Hayter), as well as the television shows AMERICAN GODS and LOST GIRL.
