Christopher Pennell, author of Mysterious Woods of Whistle Root

Catherine Jinks, author of How to Catch a Bogle

(The New York Times Book Review says about How to Catch a Bogle: “The book, which is part Great Expectations, part Ghostbusters and a little bit Vindication of the Rights of Woman, mixes monster murder with work ethics and the importance of a girl being able to make a living for herself. . . . For all its grime, Jinks’s world is rich.”)

Catherine Gilbert Murdock, author of Heaven is Paved with Oreos
