Kathleen Peacock spent her teen years crushing on authors and writing short stories about vampires.

She has a diploma in graphic design, was a failure at photography, and lives in Atlantic Canada.

Dream Debutante Dress -  Alexander McQueen! Peacocks! Mad hair!

Notes from a YA Debutante

*trips over shoes**falls down staircase* I’m alright! I’m alright! While I sit in the corner and wait for the room to stop spinning, here are seven facts about me. Someone please come get me when it’s time for the cotillion. *whips out fan*

1) I have a tendency of talking like an episode of The Gilmore Girls. It takes me three times as many words as it should to say anything, and every third sentence has a pop culture reference. 

2) I was teased mercilessly over my last name in elementary school—so much so that I came very close to using a penname after the book sold.

3) I was voted “Most Bashful” of my high school graduating class.

4) I was obsessed with vampires as a teen. I used to carry around a copy of The Anne Rice Trivia Book. This did not seem to make me cool.

5) Swordfights are awesome! 

6) I do not know how to swordfight.  

7) I once started working on a dystopian book in which most of the clothing was inspired by Alexander McQueen and Andrew Wyeth paintings.


Bookie's Note: Kathleen is our second debutante of July! Kathleen, you're such a hipster, YOU LIKED VAMPIRES BEFORE IT BECAME MAINSTREAM TO LIKE THEM! And Peacock is a lovely last name! I would trade you :D And sword fights are awesome, I used to want to fence and then I realised how dangerous it was for someone like me who lacks coordination so I gave that dream! Well everyone, please come back tomorrow for the second part of Kathleen's feature and a giveaway!

Badass Bookie xx


  1. THAT DRESS!! It's is just so beautiful! If I could wear something like that I don't think I'd ever take it off... I'd go grocery shopping in it and everything :)
    And yes, swordfights are awesome! I wish I knew how to wield a sword! :)

  2. EEEEEEEEEE! Oh my goodness... I kind of maybe thought it WAS a pename, but that's Kathleen's real surname? AWESOME!

    AND OMFG. ANNE RICE. I LOVE. I remember reading Interview With The Vampire, like, 10 or 12 years ago and being FLOORED. AMAZING. I NOW LOVE HER EVEN MORE!

  3. It's Kathleen! Hello! *waves*
    Just recently read Hemlock and LOVED it! Such a great book.
    And swordfights! Gotta love them ;)

  4. I'm still obsessed with Vampires!!! lol

  5. I would not have teased her over that name. Peacock is awesome!

  6. Aww, Anne Rice is one of my favorite authors! In my opinion the trivia you carried around, definitely made you cool! ;)

  7. Man, that dress is amaaaazing! And fitting! See, having a name you can match your clothes to isn't so bad, now is it? ;) I LOVE Gilmore Girls, I wish I could find a Lorelai to be best friends with! Ahem, in a non creepy way.

  8. that dress is beautiful... :)

  9. Now that is a debutante dress! Much better than the white one I had to wear, and it goes with your name too : ) I think it's pretty cool you carried around an Anne Rice trivia book. I wasn't into Anne Rice, but I was known to carry around a Buffy trivia book from time to time :P Also, one can never have too many pop culture references!!
