Lydia Kang is a physician who caught the writing bug several years ago and does not want the antidote, thank you very much. She is also the author of A Beautiful Poison, Quackery: A Brief History Of The Worst Ways To Cure Everything, and the young adult novels Control, Catalyst, and forthcoming Toxic. She lives with her family in the Midwest.
Kristen Simmons is the author of the Article 5 series, The Glass Arrow, Metaltown, and the upcoming Pacifica. She has worked with survivors of abuse and trauma as a mental health therapist, taught Jazzercise in five states, and is forever in search of the next best cupcake. Currently she lives in Cincinnati, Ohio with her husband, where she spends her days supporting the caffeine industry and chasing her delightfully rambunctious son.
Tiffany Schmidt grew up in Massachusetts, where she split her childhood between the library and the time out chair. She is the author of several popular young adult novels, including Send Me a Sign, >Bright Before Sunrise, the Once Upon a Crime Family series and the upcoming >Bookish Boyfriends series (May 2018). A former sixth grade teacher, she lives in Pennsylvania with her impish twin sons, their rascally baby brother, a pair of spoiled puggles, and her very saintly husband. Find her online at TiffanySchmidt.com, or on Twitter and Instagram @TiffanySchmidt.
Jessica Leake is the author of the adult novels Arcana and The Order of the Eternal Sun, both with Skyhorse. She worked for years as a psychotherapist, but even though she loved her clients, she couldn’t stop writing. She lives in South Carolina with her husband, four young children, lots of chickens, and two dogs who keep everyone in line. Beyond a Darkened Shore is her YA debut. Visit her at www.jessicaleake.com.
