University of Central Florida Book Festival Is Happening This Week!!




This Saturday, April 5, 2014 I'll be at the UCF Book Festival in Orlando with lots of amazing authors. If you are in the Orlando area I hope you'll head over to the CFE arena and check out all of the activities and panels.

I'll be doing a panel that I'm so excited about with Christy Farley and Kristen Simmons called "Saving the World with Young Adult Authors" at 10am. You can check out where and how to get there in the festival program. It should be awesome as these lovely ladies are two of my favorite people to hang out with!

You should come hang out with us too. Hope to see you there.

Authors joining me: Christina Farley, Anna Banks, Jessica Brody, Jessica Khoury, and Lucienne Diver (agent/author--which means I guess SIX author and one agent since she's both!)
