Biography

Iva-Marie Palmer

Iva-Marie Palmer grew up in Chicago’s South Suburbs, and — despite her educators’ best efforts — she could never remember what Casimir Pulaski did to get a holiday until she researched it for her first book, THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT (available now on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo and iTunes).
 
Now she lives with her husband and son in Los Angeles, where there are no three-day weekends for Mr. Pulaski, but since there are also no -11 degree days (before wind chill), she makes do. She loves books, Disneyland, food sold off carts and trucks, John Hughes movies and Joss Whedon everything, books, old movie palaces, shiny shoes, crossword puzzles, drivers who do the little wave thing when you let them in your lane of traffic, vending machines that sell odd items (or just really good candy), books, non-life threatening adventures and roadside attractions. You can find her online on Facebook and Twitter (follow her @ivamarie) and right here. Come visit, and she’ll wish you a happy Casimir Pulaski Day.
