Adam Shaughnessy is an author and educator. He received his BA in English from Connecticut College and is currently pursuing his MA in children’s literature from Hollins University.  His debut novel, The Entirely True Story of the Unbelievable FIB, was selected for the 2015 Middle Grade Buzz Panel at BookExpo America, and was chosen by the American Booksellers Association for both the Indies Introduce list and the Indies Next list. In Shaughnessy’s follow up to his debut, The Unbelievable FIB 2: Over the Underworld (Algonquin Young Readers), it’s been a year since friends ABE and Pru joined Mister Fox’s Fantasy Investigation Bureau–otherwise known as the Unbelievable FIB–to save their hometown from an invasion of Viking gods and giants. Life has been incredibly ordinary ever since. But that’s all about to change when the Norse Allfather, Odin, appears with terrible news: Baldur, his favorite son, has been murdered. It’s the first step in a fated chain of events that leads to Ragnarok–the end of the world. ABE and Pru outrun trolls, explore Asgard and the Viking underworld, and try to outsmart the Queen of the Dead herself to change fate, save the world–and survive seventh grade.
