Things here are on fire getting ready for York Book Expo, Saturday, October 15 from 11 am-4 pm at the fairgrounds of York Expo Center. If you’re an author and haven’t had a chance to sign up as a vendor yet, there are still a few spaces left. Grab your registration form HERE.
This year I am super stoked to announce International best-selling author Maria Snyder as our featured guest. Maria switched careers from meteorologist to novelist when she began writing the New York Times best-selling Study Series (POISON STUDY, MAGIC STUDY, and FIRE STUDY) about a young woman who becomes a poison taster. She now has a dozen best-selling books, with her newest NIGHT STUDY.
Born and raised in Philadelphia, she worked as an environmental meteorologist until boredom and children drove her to write down the stories swirling in her head. Writing proved to be more enjoyable than meteorology, and she now teaches and mentors writers in Seton Hill University’s MFA program.
