The Purple Girl by Audrey Kane
Illustrated by Tory and Norman Tabor
CAUTION! Violet lives within the pages of this book. And her purple spreads to everything she touches…
Violet lives behind garden walls. Is she magical? Is she the devil’s child—or simply cursed? When the lonely thirteen-year-old embarks on a dangerous journey to find the one boy that dared to befriend her, she travels at night…in the dark…to keep people from seeing her purple skin. But no one is more surprised than Violet when she unlocks her mysterious gift.
About the Author
As a writer, and also a designer of tapestries with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Georgia, it is only natural for Audrey to weave visual stories. When she is not designing tapestries, she is busy conjuring up characters that find themselves in extraordinary situations. Between carpools and design work, she is plotting, scheming, writing, and revising. She lives in North Carolina with her husband, their three children, and her unruly dog, Rascals. Audrey’s favorite time to write is in the early morning while her family sleeps. With Rascals sprawled out snoring beside her, it only takes one oversized cup of coffee to get her mind moving.
Audrey is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators. She loves traveling, museums, and blackberry-apple pie. Actually, she loves all kinds of pie. And she especially loves her family. They have put up with Violet and Waxy for a long time. You can visit her at: www.audreykane.com or on Facebook.
The Purple Girl by Audrey Kane is a surprisingly mysterious story. It’s fun and it really grabbed my attention right away. Violet is just that: violet! Her parents don’t know why she is purple. Many of the people in town are afraid of her or make fun of her. Violet’s story is interesting and unique. I thoroughly enjoyed it! I would love to read more of her adventures.

It would be amazing to design tapestries. I hope we get to see some.
Good Morning, Mary. I love the process of designing something…whether it is a tapestry or a story. My creative energy is always looking for an escape! (And now I’m thinking I should add a photo of one of our tapestries to my author website. You are not the first to want to see one. What do you think?)
Sounds like such a cute story to share w/my granddaughter.
Thanks you, Elise-Maria. It is a story meant to be shared!

Audrey…I wonder if we’ve crossed paths? I spent a year in Athens (GA) as a Governor’s Teaching Fellow and now live in NC (in Wilmington).
Seems like our paths should have crossed, Catherine. I miss those milkshakes and burgers at The Grill…
