I’ll be at BinderconLA this weekend on the YA panel


I am in the writing cave, working on a new, secret project that I’m excited about. It’s not a Starters book, but something new. However, I was asked to be on the “Tense and Sensibility” Panel, “Ways to Tackle Tragedy in Young Adult Literature” at BinderconLA. With a title like that, how could I refuse? It’s the only YA panel at this special convention where the focus is on women helping women so I crawled out of my writing cave for this good cause.

LA Weekly gave our panel a nice shout-out here. 


Our moderator is Lilliam Rivera (the upcoming The Education of Margo Sanchez) and the panel was her brain-child. I’ll be with the amazing  authors Brandy Colbert (Pointe) and Elizabeth Ross (Belle Epoque) and Isabel Quintero (Gabi, A Girl in Pieces) and we’ll talk about writing and publishing and diversity and all kinds of things.  If you’re signed up for this conference, don’t miss us. I look forward to meeting lots of smart, motivated writers  this weekend, so please don’t hesitate to say hi to me either at the panel or at the events.
