Kristina McMorris is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Sold on a Monday. Inspired by true personal and historical accounts, her novels have garnered twenty national literary awards. A frequent guest speaker and workshop presenter, she holds a BS in international marketing from Pepperdine. She lives with her husband and two sons in Oregon.

Jennifer Coburn is the author of the mother-daughter travel memoir We'll Always Have Paris, as well as four contemporary women’s novels, and a contributor to five literary anthologies. She is a former employee and spokesperson for Planned Parenthood, and she has published hundreds of articles about reproductive rights, racial justice, and family relationships in newspapers and magazines, including The Washington Post, Miami Herald, The Philadelphia Inquirer, and San Diego Magazine. She lives with her family in San Diego.

Eden Robins loves novels best, but they take forever, so she also writes short stories and self-absorbed essays. She co-hosts a science podcast called No Such Thing As Boring with an actual scientist, and produces a monthly live lit show in Chicago called Tuesday Funk. Previously, she sold sex toys, wrote jokes for Big Pharma, and once did a stand-up comedy set to an audience who didn’t boo. She lives in Chicago, has been to the bottom of the ocean, and will never go to space. When Franny Stands Up is her first novel.

Mary Webber O’Malley is a writer and a Virtual Bookseller for Skylark Bookshop in Columbia, Missouri, reading and blurbing books across many genres. She is also the Author Liaison and Scheduling Producer for A Mighty Blaze, and co-host of the Blaze Boudoir. When not reading or writing, Mary and her husband love spending time with their grandchildren and tending their little suburban homestead outside Chicago, Illinois.
