Janet B. Taylor, author of THE DIM, held her very first author event at Southern Arkansas University in Magnolia, Arkansas. Twenty student teachers came to see her speak about writing, being an author, and how important it is to encourage kids to read and write. They had a reading, a Q&A, and (of course) cupcakes.

Kali Wallace, author of SHALLOW GRAVES, sold a short story to Clarkesworld Magazine called “Fatima’s World”. Her story will appear in the December issue.

Jennifer Maschari, author of THE REMARKABLE JOURNEY OF CHARLIE PRICE, has been chosen to teach a class at the Thurber House in Columbus, Ohio. She will be working with fourth and fifth grade writers in a class she designed called Do You Believe in Magic? Young writers will learn how to incorporate magic into their own stories.
