My cover!

Speaking at San Francisco Writers Conference!

Calling all writers!

I'm thrilled to announce I'll be a panelist at the upcoming San Francisco Writers Conference President's weekend with fellow YA authors authors C.J. Omololu (DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS) and N. H. Senzal (SHOOTING KABUL).

The theme of our talk is:

Capturing the Hearts of Teenage Readers: Crafting Young Adult Fiction


and I'll discuss my journey crafting SEA --turning a real-life event the 2004 tsunami, into a story teenagers would be interested in reading--as well as my contributions to both The Visitor's Guide to Mystic Falls and my upcoming short-story contribution to the anthology TRUTH & DARE (coming May, 2011). TRUTH & DARE will be published in the UK and here in the U.S. If they ask about the #sexahmagicbooks, I'm sure I'll talk about them too. :)

Following our talk, we'll take questions and sign copies of our published works. For me, copies of SEA and Visitor's Guide to Mystic Falls will be available for sale.
