JC Peterson - Lola at LastJC Peterson is the author of contemporary YA rom-coms Being Mary Bennet and Lola At Last. She lives in Denver, CO, with her husband and two children. When not dreaming of funny one-liners for her characters or signing up for way too much for her kids, she loves fancy tea parties, exploring the Colorado mountains, and planning new adventures.


Ellen O’Clover - Seven Percent of Ro Devereux  - Ellen O’Clover writes stories about finding your people, falling in love, and figuring it all out (or trying to, anyway). She grew up in Ohio and studied creative writing at the Johns Hopkins University before moving west to Colorado. When she’s not writing, you can usually find her reading fiction about big feelings, trying new recipes with mixed results, or hiking in the Rockies. She lives in Denver with her rocket scientist husband and a perfect bulldog.


Meg Long - Swift the Storm, Fierce the FlameMeg Long is the author of YA sci-fi novels, including COLD THE NIGHT, FAST THE WOLVES. When not writing, she’s kicking things at her Muay Thai gym with her boyfriend, playing video games, or working at her day job as a content designer for Netflix. She can be found online at and across socials as @heeeyitsmeg.


Jessie Weaver - Live Your Best Lie - Before writing about flawed, funny teens with big hearts, Jessie Weaver spent ten years teaching them English. She completed the Stanford University online novel writing program in 2019. Though she’s an East Coast girl at heart, originally from Baltimore, MD, she currently lives just outside Denver, Colorado with her husband and two daughters. Live Your Best Lie is her first novel.


Jenna Miller - Out of Character  - Jenna Miller (she/her) writes Young Adult books about fat, queer, nerdy girls who deserve to be seen and have their voices heard. When she’s not obsessing over words, she can be found making charcuterie boards, befriending people online, cross stitching, or adventuring in the Minneapolis area.


This event is free and open to the public.
