Young Adult author panel

Baltimore County Public Library

Featured authors are F.M. Boughan, Meg Eden, Christina June, Kathy MacMillan, Sharon Huss Roat and Katy Upperman.

F.M. Boughan is a bibliophile, a writer, and an unabashed parrot enthusiast. She can often be found writing in local coffee shops, namely because it’s hard to concentrate with a cat lying on the keyboard and a small, colorful parrot screaming into her ear. Her work is somewhat dark, somewhat violent, somewhat hopeful, and always contains a hint of magic. Cinderella, Necromancer is her YA debut, a dark fantasy retelling of the classic tale.

Meg Eden's work has been published in various magazines, including Rattle, Drunken Boat, Poet Lore, RHINO and Gargoyle. She teaches at the University of Maryland. She has four poetry chapbooks, and her novel Post-High School Reality Quest is published with California Coldblood, an imprint of Rare Bird Books.

Christina June is a school counselor by day and writes young adult contemporary fiction by night. She is a voracious reader, loves to travel, and hopes to one day be bicoastal–the east coast of the US and the east coast of Scotland. She lives just outside Washington, DC with her husband and daughter. Her second novel, Everywhere You Want to Be (a companion to It Started with Goodbye), will be published in 2018.

Kathy MacMillan is a writer, American Sign Language interpreter, consultant, librarian, signing storyteller, and avowed Hufflepuff. Her debut young adult novel, Sword and Verse, explores questions of power and prejudice in an epic fantasy setting. Kathy serves as the co-Regional Advisor for the Maryland/Delaware/West Virginia Region of the Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.

Sharon Huss Roat is the author of HarperTeen novels Between the Notes and How to Disappear. She grew up in Lancaster County, PA, and now lives in Delaware with her husband and two children. She writes and reads and cooks and gardens and drives to music lessons and dance rehearsals and takes naps (naps are big), and she loves to hear from readers.

Katy Upperman is a graduate of Washington State University, a former elementary school teacher, and an insatiable reader. When not writing for young adults, Katy can be found whipping up batches of chocolate chip cookies or exploring the country with her husband and daughter. Kissing Max Holden is her debut novel.
