Greetings from the NoVA Teen Book Fest!

NoVA Teen Fest!I’m back from the first annual Northern Virginia Teen Book Fest and all I can say is: WOW!!! Thanks to all who came out for a day of bookish fun–I loved meeting you all! And I had a blast hearing my fellow writers dish on their brilliant books! The day at a glance?: I caught up with pals (Claudia Gray! Meg Medina! Hannah Barnaby!) and met folks I’ve been dying to meet (Jon Skovron! Jessica Spotswood! Sarah Guillory!)


Bad Boys panel! I got to co-moderate an awesome panel on YA Bad Boys (best topic ever!) with the fabulous Elisa Nader featuring the amazing trio of Elle Cosimano, Erica Cameron and Victoria Schwab (these ladies rock–read all of their books! Now!)




Phyllis & Elle!AND I had MAJOR fangirl moments meeting the incredible Marie Lu and the legendary Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. Phyllis actually ended up on a panel with Elle and me at the last minute and it was all I could do to keep from gushing like crazy. She’s so inspiring and such a tremendous writer and storyteller, I couldn’t help but be in awe. (Kind of love that we were color-coordinated too!)


NoVA Signing Cheers to the folks at One More Page Books for launching this amazing event and a HUGE thank you to all of you who came by! Can’t wait for next year! (And thanks to my fab sis, Karen, for snapping all these shots!)
