(My favorite Young Adult authors)
- Charles de Lint because he creates fantastical worlds that are believable.
- Carrie Jones because she writes great books and is one of the sweetest people I know.
- Nancy Werlin because of her fascinating plots.
- Lisa Yee because of her quirky characters.
- Libba Bray because she makes me laugh and she makes me think.
