April 8, 2020
Today's spells were written by a friend of mine, Kayla Cagan -- a great writer, playwright and a thoughtful observer of the world we live in.
 
Kayla Cagan’s first book, PIPER PERISH received universal praise, was selected as an Amazon and Barnes & Noble Best Book of the Month, and was a Spirit of Texas High School Reading Program 2018 pick. Her second book, ART BOSS, was called “an engaging portrait of the artist as a young woman” by Kirkus Review and "a great read for any artist aspiring to greatness" by the American Library Association's Booklist. Her short plays and monologues have been published by Applause Books and Smith and Kraus and are performed in high schools across the country. She has contributed comics and essays to assorted collections, including Girl Crush Zine, Womanthology, and Unite and Take Over: Stories Inspired by the Smiths.
