Meet the Author

Gennifer Albin holds a master's degree in English literature from the University of Missouri. During her student years she served as an editor for Pleiades and The Missouri Review, and since then she's founded the tremendously popular blog the connected mom.

Elizabeth Fama is the author of Overboard, an ALA Best Book for Young Adults. She lives with her family in Chicago, Illinois.

Lish McBride was raised by wolves in the Pacific Northwest. It rains a lot there, but she likes it anyway. She spent three years away while she got her MFA in fiction from the University of New Orleans, and she liked that too, although the hurricane did leave much of her stuff underwater. She enjoys reading, having geek-laden conversations about movies, comics, and zombies with her friends, and of course trying to wear pajamas as much as humanly possible. Currently, Lish lives happily in Seattle where the weather never actually tries to kill you, with her family, two cats, and one very put-upon Chihuahua. She is slowly building her lawn gnome army.

Marie Rutkoski is the author of The Kronos Chronicles,including The Cabinet of Wonders. She is a professor at Brooklyn College, where she teaches Renaissance Drama, children's literature, and creative writing. She lives in New York City.

Ann Aguirre is a national bestselling author whose first novel for young adults, Enclave, was praised as "for fans of The Hunger Games" by Publishers Weekly. She lives in Mexico with her husband, two children, two cats, and one very lazy dog.

Since earning an MA in Writing Seminars at John Hopkins University, Caragh O'Brien has been a high school teacher, a published author of romance novels, and now a novelist for teens. Her novels BIRTHMARKED and PRIZED were named YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults.

Lish McBride grew up in the Pacific Northwest. It rains a lot there, but she likes it anyway. She spent three years away while she got her MFA in fiction from the University of New Orleans, where she managed to survive the hurricane. She enjoys reading, having geek-laden conversations about movies, comics, and zombies with her friends, and of course trying to wear pajamas as much as humanly possible. She lives happily in Mountlake, WA, with her family, two cats, and one very put-upon Chihuahua. Her debut novel, Hold Me Closer, Necromancer was named an American Library Association Best Book for Young Adults and was a finalist for the YALSA William C. Morris Award.

Rutkoski is currently a professor at Brooklyn College, where she teaches Renaissance Drama, children’s literature and creative writing. She lives in New York City with her husband and cat.
Ann Aguirre has been a clown, a clerk, a savior of stray kittens, and a voice actress, not necessarily in that order.

The post-apocalyptic novel Enclave is her first book for young adults. She also writes the romantic science fiction series about Sirantha Jax, starting with Grimspace, as well as urban fantasy and paranormal romance. As Ava Gray, she writes paranormal romantic suspense.
