About The Bone Knife

Title: The Bone Knife Author: Intisar Khanani Genre: YA Fantasy, Short Story Blurb: Rae knows how to look out for family. Born with a deformed foot, she feigns indifference to the pity and insults that come her way. Wary of all things beautiful, Rae instantly distrusts their latest visitor: an appallingly attractive faerie. Further, his presence imperils the secret her sister guards. But when the local townspeople show up demanding his blood, Rae must find a way to protect both her sister’s secret and their guest. Even if that means risking herself.

Author Bio

Intisar Khanani grew up a nomad and world traveler. Born in Wisconsin, she has lived in five different states as well as in Jeddah on the coast of the Red Sea. She first remembers seeing snow on a wintry street in Zurich, Switzerland, and vaguely recollects having breakfast with the orangutans at the Singapore Zoo when she was five. She currently resides in Cincinnati, Ohio, with her husband and two young daughters. Until recently, Intisar wrote grants and developed projects to address community health with the Cincinnati Health Department, which was as close as she could get to saving the world. Now she focuses her time on her two passions: raising her family and writing fantasy. Her approach to writing reflects her lifelong love for stories from different cultures. Her next project is a companion trilogy to her debut novel Thorn, with Rae as her new heroine.

  1. Hi Eustacia -

    Thanks so much for featuring The Bone Knife's release day party on your blog! It's great to be back :)

    I noticed you're planning on trying NaNoWriMo this year. This will be my sixth one, though I'm planning on...innovating a bit this time. I have too many unfinished NaNos to take on a whole new project. So this NaNo I plan to try to complete the unfinished portions of at least three projects, all of them YA fantasy. What will you be working on? Good luck with it!


    1. Hi Intisar! You're always welcome here(:

      Oh, my NaNo is.... very unplanned :p I have the characters, but only a vague plot. I'm hopping that the already bossy characters will start directing the plot come November.


    2. Sometimes those are the most fun--you never know where your characters will take you next! And the forums often have great ideas for plot additions when you're running out of words (those have saved me a couple times). If you'd like to find me on NaNo, my id is "I. Khanani". Happy writing,



I really do appreciate all comments, and I'll try my best to reply within 24 hours!
