K.A. Applegate
« on: June 24, 2009, 01:49:01 PM »
I have been reading Animorphs for years now, and I was thinking recently, "Whatever man wrote these books must be one hell of an intelligent guy." However, something has been nagging at me lately, since on the books, the author's real name is never shown, just "K.A. Applegate" and I have a nagging suspicion that "K.A. Applegate" is NOT a man...


Does anyone know the identity of this K.A. Applegate?

HER name is Katherine. I was a bit confused while I was reading the series as well. But I eventually found out her first name.

So what's the problem here? Just to keep the thread going, could you explain yourself better? Which books do you plan on burning/never reading again?

Come on. Spill. ;D

I like the Harry Potter books even though I know a woman wrote them (but I dont know her official name, just that its "J.K. Rowling")

Then I just don't understand how the sex of the author matters?

One thing to note is that after book 20, most of the books were ghostwritten. So it's possible that some later books were written by men. Thruthfully, KA only wrote about half of those books, at the most. Though she says she looked over the ghostwritten books, I'm unsure just how much.
