Christie mostly writes picture books, but also has a few other manuscripts up her sleeves. #dandelionsareawesome
Marcie Colleen has been a teacher, an actress, and a nanny, but now spends her days writing children's books! She is represented by Susan Hawk at Upstart Crow Literary and enjoys reading, long distance running, watching baseball, and eating ice cream, but not all at the same time! Although she will always be a Brooklynite at heart, Marcie now lives in San Diego with her husband.
Kristin Smith is a bestselling YA author who hails from a small town in southern Virginia. The moment she knew she wanted to be a writer was when she would come home every afternoon in fifth grade and typed out her first "book" on an old typewriter. Nowadays, her stories are a little easier to record, thanks to her trusty laptop that goes everywhere with her!
Jeni Chappelle is a freelance editor, member of SWCBI and Editorial Freelancers Association, co-founder and editor for Twitter pitch event Revise & Resub (#RevPit), and featured editor for #P2P16, #ShoreIndie, and the inaugural Suffolk Mystery Authors Festival. She considers herself a hobbit and lives in an itty-bitty town in North Carolina with her family and way too many pets.
