About the Author

He is an advocate for kids' comics, having cofounded the organization Kids Love Comics, which works to promote comic books and graphic novels as a valuable tool for literacy and education in schools, libraries, and at home. He lives with his wife Karen and their twin daughters, Stella and Anna, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.


"Gownley's first new Amelia Rules! material in two years is just as full of preteen/tween angst and humor as ever. . . . Amelia fans will love it, and new readers can enjoy it, too." "--BOOKLIST"

"Gownley deftly combines humor and realism to create a thought-provoking story guaranteed to resonate with readers, who also will appreciate his wonderfully drawn illustrations." -"Scripps Howard News Service"

"The author's insightful observations of daily kid life are allowed to shine. . . . Gownley's mimicry and comic allusions are again on display. . . . Engaging characters and lively art should capture readers new and old." --"Publishers Weekly"
"Amelia McBride . . . is a comic genius. . . . As the first new Amelia book in two years, this volume should get quickly devoured by the younger set, and with good reason. It's a hoot." "--"GraphicNovelReporter
"Haven't read comics before? This is where you'll want to start. . . . Whether she's battling a new teacher with light sabers dressed as a Jedi, or on the news having photos taken with Paris Hilton, readers will have a fun time getting lost in [Amelia's] imagination." "--""GIRLS LIFE"
"Amelia McBride returns in an all new, hilarious adventure. . . .The dialogue is effortless and evokes laughter on every page. That alone is reason to read the book, but Gownley's ability to give his heroine such earnestness and thoughtfulness is what sets this story apart." -"SLJ"
