Disambiguation Notice

Ms. Cashore is a fairly new novelist as of this writing (October 2009), having only two novels, and Graceling frequently gets referred to as her "first book". However, she has been writing in-house type educational publications for several years; those nonfiction early readers in topics such as history, politics and biology are written by the SAME Kristin Cashore who authored (novels) Graceling and Fire. Please do not split the author!
