Meet Kami Garcia, author of this dark thriller to find out why millions of people became obsessed with The X-Files.

Kami Garcia presented her new work in conversation with The Nerdy Bird blogger and online celebrity, Jill Pantozzi. It was a great conversation with many nuggets about the book and what’s to come. X-Files Origins: Agent of Chaos is a great read as Kami’s engrossing and simple writing style meets her love for Fox Mulder and the X-Files series.

As we learned, her research was meticulous to generate an authentic background for a teenage Fox Mulder showing his budding skills in clue solving not to mention dramatic tension as he stumbles onto a case eerily similar to what he experienced when his sister disappeared years earlier. It is a journey of discovery and self-discovery that leads him along a trail shadowed with chaos.
