Life is a musical with Kalynn Bayron

| E:8

New York Times bestselling author Kalynn Bayron is a theater nerd to her very core. She was raised in a house of musicals, having been introduced to the likes of Sweeney Todd and Phantom of the Opera early on in her life (perhaps too early!)

In this chat, Adam and Kalynn chat about their shared obsessions with musicals, talk about their own experiences growing up with them, and the ones they still adore today.

Kalynn Bayron is the New York Times and Indie bestselling author of the YA fantasy novels CINDERELLA IS DEAD and THIS POISON HEART. Her latest works include the YA fantasy THIS WICKED FATE and the middle grade paranormal adventure THE VANQUISHERS.
