About Author

  1. I suppose I have always been enad with story and character My mother tells me I could be the most annoying little kid, waking up each day as a new character Every morning she would have to ask me who I was for that day, because unless properly addressed I refused to answer anyone One time when I was about four years old, my parents were out shopping at Sears They each thought the other had me by the hand when in fact I was exploring my own aisle translation I was lost Two salesladies found me and sat me on the counter, asking me my name so they could page my parents I remember their consternation when I would only answer Little Red Riding Hood They couldn t shake my real name out of me no how, no way I knew the value of persistence even then My parents say they nearly fell over, when over the loud speaker they heard, Would the parents of Little Red Riding Hood please come claim their child They knew exactly who was lost These days I mostly wake up as myself, though I do seem to hang out with a lot of characters during the day.Usually when people mention their education in their bios they only mention their college degrees, but to me, it is just as important what happened way before that Wow second grade I will never forget Mrs Alsenz Boy, could she tell a great story She would make them up and pretty soon have a classroom of wiggly kids exuberantly telling stories right along with her And then there was Mrs Bonsey in fourth grade She always praised my writing and made a shy little girl feel like she might actually excel at something And finally in twelfth grade came Mr Kirk, crusty on the outside with a heart of gold on the inside, who loved the English language and taught his students to do the same Hey, Mr Kirk, do you see me waving at ya Later I went on to get a BFA from Long Beach State University in art I worked for a time as an artist then started the most challenging job of my life motherhood Holy smokes, no one told me there would be no coffee breaks But it is the most rewarding job I have ever had watch out I ll start dragging out the pictures Still later, I went to San Diego State University where I received my teaching credential I went on to teach many different grades but it was my second grade students who pushed me back into writing During Writing Workshop I would sit with them and write, loving the process, loving the stories, and lo and behold deciding I would love to return to my first love That s a whole lot of lovin going on and luckily for me I was able to do just that Not that writing is easy I have a huge stack of rejections to prove it, but I still have enough of that Little Red Riding Hood persistence in me to keep on going.Now I write full time from my home in San Diego My books to date are The Adoration of Jenna Fox, A Room on Lorelei Street, Scribbler of Dreams, and David v God More are definitely on the way.

One thought on “Scribbler of Dreams

  1. On a small planet, where minute follows minute, day follows day, year follows year, where tradition marches on with a deafening, orderly beat sometimes the order is disturbed by a dreamer, an artist, a scribbler sometimes the beat is changed one person at a time.Scribbler of Dreams is one of those few books that I was able to read in one sitting UNPUTDOWNABLE It made me feel a mixture of emotions from anger to sadness back to rage and ultimately resolve Mary E Pearson s writing is execeptional a [...]

  2. Good Lord, where do I begin This is hands down one of the worst YA books of all time The plot is a rip off of Romeo and Juliet, which was not a turn off at all and was probably the number one reason I decided to read this Big mistake because Pearson relied so heavily on RJ that she failed to really set up any kind of plot that makes sense The story starts off with Kaitlin Malone telling us, I hate the Crutchfields The Crutchfields being the family of her Romeo, a young lad named Bram Crutchfield [...]

  3. I m really glad this was not the first Pearson book I d ever read I don t know based on this one, if I would have read any of the others I would have missed out on Jenna Fox and The Miles Between, but it wasn t my favorite either I m beginning to wonder if she wasn t just a one hit wonder Scribbler borrowed just a little bit much from Romeo and Juliet It was un original and un compelling All the twists and turns were very obvious The characters were not very likeable The love story was decent, b [...]

  4. The very first time I read this book I ordered it from a book fair when I was in middle school I have reread it times than I can count since, and it was one of the first stories I was so desperate to finish I did almost nothing else No, the story is not original, but guess what It says that it s a Romeo and Juliet tale on the back of the friggin book What are you expecting So amazing new tale that s never been done So NO, do not go into this book thinking it s going to have a bunch of twists an [...]

  5. I really really really enjoyed this book The book was kind of a romance book, but it also had a bit of mystery to it I loved how the author made up the story of how they met, and that they both were artists of some kind It was really cool that Bram and Kaitlin connected in that way I think others would enjoy the book Scribbler of Dreams because it is a story about two lovers who in the end try to bring their two different families together.

  6. My friend lent me this book to read back in November or 2008 I never read it because I m not very big on romances But I read the back last night and got somewhat interested I read it and quickly became amazed by this book It s a romance but not the typical type Kait has a huge hate for his family and Bram has a hate for her own So she hides her identity from him They fall in love But all this time she s been feeding him lies and pretending to be somebody that she is not And when he finds out it [...]

  7. The story was very Romeo Juliet Complete with cathartic ending I can t remember all the details, but I remember thoroughly enjoying it.

  8. I really enjoyed this book It is mainly about a teenage girl and this boy she met at school and about their relationship This was a great book and I think just about everybody would like this book.

  9. Maggie Crutchfield makes one small mistake, having a baby without the presence of a husband,and her sister Amanda Crutchfield Malone absolutely shuns her and refuses to ever speak to Maggie again This is how the Crutchfields and Malones began to hate each other and create their feud Five generations later Kaitlin Malone and her sister, Abby, are starting a new high school with their mother s maiden name, Hampton This school just so happens to be owned by the very wealthy Crutchfield family The h [...]

  10. the only plot is the romance When there were other conversations, or activities the main character was doing, it was just summed up really quick in a paragraph So you didn t get to know other characters It also seems like rushed romance She saw him, they talked like twice then were suddenly in love her friend said she had the hots for him and she says no it s not like that its REAL which sounds so lame because the only reason she did start hanging out with him is because he was hot she lied to h [...]

  11. This book is Amazing to say the least I read this book 2 years ago and the plot is etched in my brain I remember reading this book and staying up just to finish it The book itself, I couldn t put down and the next day, going to school with bags on my eyes, I went to the library to check out another book by Mary Pearson and they didn t have any.This book reminds me a lot of Romeo and Juliet Two families The Crutchfields and The Malones, sworn enemies, countless arguments, and a continued hate tow [...]

  12. I totally fell in love with Scribbler of Dreams I don t know if I would say it s a Romeo and Juliet type story even though it is , but the family feud reminded me of the Hatfields and McCoys with a love story Either way, it was amazing.Kait Malone hates the Crutchfields for everything they ve done She s forced to transfer to a Crutchfield school, Twin Oaks There, she meets Bram, the quiet artist who has an eye for beauty The only drawback Bram s name is Crutchfield.It was so adorable, their rel [...]

  13. GOSH I just bought this book yesterday september 25,2011 and I was surprised to myself that I actually had finished this book today I love the story super love the story is really fascinating about family, hate, love, lies, and regret this book only shows that love can conquers everything even a generation hate of two families reading this, I felt like I had also felt every feeling of Kaitlin Malone I was tickled in pink,I laughed, I feel nervous, and I cry yes, I cry It s weird but I really bee [...]

  14. Katelin Malone has been trained since birth to hate the Crutchfield family However, when her father ends up in jail for a murder he did not commit, she doesn t have to rely on her years of training to hate them any Until Bram Crutchfield comes along and changes everything for her Now she s torn between a love she s not supposed to feel, and a past she doesn t know if she believes in any .I picked this book up at the Warehouse sale for 1 and that s the only reason I bought it However, I m so glad [...]

  15. A retelling of Romeo and Juliet staring the Hatfields and McCoys or at least Malones and Crutchfields in this book A decent retelling and Kaitlin and Bram seem to know each other even though there is some love at first sight going on The only problem I had was the ending It was too neatly done and not all of my questions were directly answered I think I would have prefered a blow out fight verbal of course between the families to see who was telling the truth and who was lying there was a lot of [...]

  16. This book is geared toward a much younger audience Kimberly had just finished reading it so I picked it up and ended up reading it too Two HS Seniors meet and fall in love The problem is their families have disliked each other for generations This book is about opening your mind enough to see beyond your own point of view to trying to understand anothers Henry Wadsworth Longfellow is quoted before the story even begins as saying, If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we should find [...]

  17. I read this book for the first time when I was in 8th grade I apparently loved it, and kept my fond feeling for this book with me for years Okay, so I found this book at a garage sale, and was absolutely excited to read it again My thoughts upon reading this book for the second time represent how drastically someone can change and grow I read this book with a permanent feeling of rolling my eyes at the entire situation It was as if everything that I now hate about books was rolled up into a nove [...]

  18. The book really catches your attention as soon as you start, it s suspenseful The author made all the emotions in the story feel real You would always be anxious to know what s going to happen next, so you have the urge to keep reading it And I don t usually read suspenseful book, but this one was well worth opening.

  19. I really enjoyed this book It s not just about the relationship between the main character and the boy she loves and how she feels about him and herself when she s with him It s about the depth of the hatred between the two families and the consequences of generational hatred and revenge.

  20. This was the first and only book I have read in one night because I could not put it down It got to me at the end and actually made me cry a few times It was Ridiculously good to my 16 year old self.

  21. First non school assigned book I ever read I picked it up on a whim when the annul mobile library came to our school This book marked my love for storytelling I ve read it countless times and remains one of my favorite books to this day Highly recommend.

  22. this book was RLY good the ending was kindan endingish it didnt rly resolve the problem of the whole book but i guess it brought the 2 together again in the ende cover of the one i read was a lot better looking 2

  23. This was a sort of contemporary Romeo and Juliet I really enjoyed this one, especially the poetry Beautiful

  24. I first read this around 1999 2002 when I was in junior high I thought it was intense, emotionally charged, and poetic back then.Re read 2017 Why I Recommend Bumping This DOWN On Your TBR It s purely entertaining The moral isn t life altering I might even argue that it s not important at all The protagonist continues to lie throughout the book, hurting multiple people, and this is never resolved outside of her saying at the end that lying is harmful This is a sad portrayal of love, and Bram s be [...]

  25. I first read this book when it published way back in 2001 and I was still in high school I can t remember if my sister gave it to me or if I got it a book fair at school, but I do remember loving it I pulled it off the shelf tonight for a familiar read, and it just made me so happy It s or less a sort of modern day take on Romeo Juliet, without all the murder Well, there is a sort of murder but not really haha What I mean is that they aren t teenagers who kill themselves in the throes of passio [...]

  26. This book was amazing The writing style was so beautiful and the secrets with the two families What I did not enjoy very much was the pase of the relationship between Kaitlin and Beam It was two fast but I know it was a Romeo and Juliet retelling so it was bound to have instalove Overall I thought the story was great and I would consider reading it again.

  27. I read this book years ago, and it still plays in my head as one of my favourites Unfortunately I haven t been able to find it again but it d led me to her other work which I fell in love with as well Yes, it is based on RJ, but for that sucker that loves a good YA love story, this one is one to grab

  28. Not my usual reading style, but a nice change of pace A quick read just to pass the time I still have a few unanswered questions, but overall decent story and good writing.

  29. This book was my favorite find at my school book fair when I was younger Modern at the time Romeo and Juliet.
