Steven Parlato, Uncommon YA Author Blog Hop Stop

This is my first blog hop experience and I thank Steven Parlato for letting me um, hop on in on it. On April 14th will be my turn, so stay tuned! Now you should go check out Steven’s post here.
The Namesake

Here’s his bio and his handsome pic:
Steven Parlato is a writer, illustrator and Assistant Professor of English at Naugatuck Valley Community College in Connecticut. An occasional actor, he’s played roles including MacBeth, The Scarecrow and Bambi’s dad, the Great Prince of the Forest. Steve’s poetry appears in journals including MARGIE, Borderlands, Freshwater, CT River Review and Peregrine. His debut YA manuscript, winner of the 2011 Tassy Walden Award for New Voices, was released January 18, 2013 by Merit Press as The Namesake. Recently, Kirkus called the novel a “memorable, disturbing story, carefully wrought.” Represented for fiction by Victoria Marini of Gelfman-Schneider Literary Agency, Steven is at work on his next YA novel. He’s a member of a YA author collective, Uncommon YA. Find him online at or on Twitter: @parlatowrites
