A.E. Rought
What's great fiction without a healthy dose of reality thrown in? Well, I walk in both worlds. I'm married to a real life sword-swinging, gun-toting hero, and I totally farm our two teens for their wit, wonder and all around fabulousness for my YA stories.

I write adult fantasy and contemporary romance, and YA paranormal romance. You can check out my backlist on my website and follow my randomness on my blog. I'm represented by Gina Panettieri of Talcott Notch Literary Services. My YA novel BROKEN, a modern riff on Mary Shelley's Frankenstein will publish January 2013 through Strange Chemsitry.

J.A. Souders
J.A. Souders was born in the heartland with an overactive imagination and an over abundance of curiosity that was always getting her into trouble.  She first began writing at the age of 13, when she moved to Florida and not only befriended the monsters under the bed, but created worlds for them to play together. 

Because she never grew up, she decided she’d put her imaginary friends to work and started writing.  She still lives in the land of sunshine and palm trees with her husband and their two children and is an active member of the RWA, CFRW, YARWA, SCBWI and the SFWA.

Her debut book, RENEGADE, a YA dystopian thriller that takes place in an underwater utopian society, is surfacing Fall 2012 from Tor Teen/Macmillan.

She is represented by Natalie Lakosil of Bradford Literary Agency. Foreign rights Taryn Fagerness of the Taryn Fagerness Agency.  Please feel free to check out her personal blog or website and connect with her on Facebook, or Twitter and of course, you can always email.

Jessie Harrell
Jessie is a wife, mother of two and an appellate attorney.  Her novel, DESTINED, debuted Nov. 17th.  It is a YA retelling of the Greek myth of Cupid & Psyche.  In one sentence:

When Psyche destroys the one relationship she can't live without, she must journey alone through ancient Greece, and confront the goddess who wants her dead, for a chance at reclaiming an immortal love.

I've also co-authored a Greek myth-based paranormal YA novel, BENEATH THE SURFACE, with Nikki Katz.  It's currently looking for a home.

Please feel free to check out my personal blog or my website. You can also follow me on twitter, like me on facebook, friend me on goodreads, or you're welcome to send me an e-mail.

Larissa Hardesty
Larissa writes paranormal young adult novels when she's not teaching preschool, conducting for a handbell choir, making scrapbooks, or taking care of her three children.

You can follow her personal blog, or on twitter or goodreads, and feel free to send her an email.
