Jennifer Nielsen

New York Times Bestselling author, Jennifer Nielsen, was born and raised in northern Utah, where she still lives today with her family, a dog that won’t play fetch, and a cat that hallucinates. She is the author of The Ascendance trilogy, beginning with THE FALSE PRINCE; the TRAITOR’S GAME series, RESISTANCE, A NIGHT DIVIDED and the forthcoming historical WORDS ON FIRE. She loves chocolate, old books, and lazy days in the mountains

Cory Anderson

Cory was born in Idaho and grew up an outdoor girl in the wild Middle Rockies, where her father—a Forest Service ranger—encouraged her to explore the woods and find “what beauty there is” in the world. She now lives in the Wasatch Mountains, where she spends countless hours writing, sometimes in the woods with just a pencil and paper. Cory is represented by Lindsay Auld at Writers House, and her debut YA thriller What Beauty There Is is set for publication in 2020 by Macmillan Publishers.

Marion Jensen

I'm Marion Jensen. By day I'm a mild-mannered instructional designer at Discover Financial Services. By night, I put on a cape and write superhero books. Books that will make you laugh, cry (but only because you're laughing so hard), and then hopefully laugh some more.


In my spare time I enjoy running, board games, cooking, and reading. I'm also a board-certified, synchronized Pez-dispenser.

My first book ALMOST SUPER came out in January, 2014 with HarperCollins.

She is the mother of four children and lives in Northern Utah.
