Meet the Sisters:
Brittany (the baby sister): Brittany is an aspiring YA Writer represented by Marisa Corvisiero of the Lori Perkins agency! Hopefully she'll be able to recommend her own book, The Keeper, to you soon along with other people's books. When she's not writing, she's teaching theatre, reading, working on her MFA in Creative Writing for Children and Young Adults at Vermont College of Fine Arts, and probably obsessing over something. If you want to know more about her writing life, visit her at her website.
Oh, and Harry Potter > air. :)
Brittany reviews YA and NA books.
Amy (the big sister): Amy is a stay at home wife & mother of 3 amazing but crazy kiddos. She has a degree in education with a concentration in English from the University of Texas, hook 'em! She tends to be a tad obsessive especially when it comes to Classical Education and literature. She likes her YA boys troubled and broken, so she can fix them! her husband in real life is absolutely wonderful and perfect, so she never gets to practice her mad fixing skills! Her YA obsession began in 2005 when Baby Sister Brittany finally talked her into reading Harry Potter 4. After that, She never looked back! So she owes her new hobby (which is a little too light of a word) to both of them! Thank you JK & Britt!
Amy reviews YA and NA books.
Jenn( the middle sister): Jennifer is a stay at home wife and mother of an adorable 8 month old baby boy. She has a degree in Communication Studies with an emphasis on Rhetoric and Persuasion and a minor in English Literature from Texas Tech University. She has a house full of animals (3 dogs and 3 cats)--all that is missing is a hamster, but thanks to a rather tramatic incident with her childhood hamsters, Milo and Otis, she vows to never own one again. She loves the mysterious, broody, and dark YA guys--in fact, she tends to fall for the bad guys most of the time. The first YA book she ever read was Harry Potter (she was the first in the family to read it, even if it was for a literary criticism competition), and she has loved the genre ever since! She is currently writing her own YA paranormal novel and hopes to follow in her little sister's footsteps and get an agent when the book is finished.
Jennifer reviews YA, NA, and Adult novels (only ones where the covers are still PG rated).
Marylee (honorary sister): Marylee is an actress, avid reader, & a super-Aunt. She loves the art of story-telling in all it's forms, but of literature especially. She enjoys long walks on the beach with the I'm-a-tough-guy-on-the-outside-but-inside-I'm-a-teddy-bear-type of man. (Fictional only please!) Her life is crazy but awesome & she loves her friends & family more than you (or they) could ever imagine!
Beth (honorary sister): Beth is a stay at home mom to three wonderfully beautiful daughters. She followed her great-grandmother's advice and married the nerd of her dreams. She graduated from Wheaton College with a degree in Communications which basically qualified her to talk and write a lot about very little. She now lives her hometown of Edmond, Oklahoma where she reads, writes, and chats about YA books (and Robert pattinson) whenever possible.
Sarah (honorary sister/ sister-in-law): Sarah loves her life. She's married to her best friend in the whole world. She gets to stay home with her precious new baby boy (who, might we add, is cute to boot)! She enjoys housekeeping, cooking, musical theatre, and reading anything and everything interesting that she can get her hands on!
Bethany (Honorary sister): Bethany works in the publishing industry in New York at a fabulous house, W.W. Norton & Company. While she’s currently working with “big-kid” books, she aspires to work with children’s and YA books in the future. Until then, she’s reading all the YA books she can, and calling it “field research.” Bethany frequently sacrifices sleep and grocery money in favor of this research. When she’s not reading, she enjoys going to the theatre, hunting for a great chai latte and heckling tourists.
