Camp YA Team

Stephen – The Major

Publisher by day Quiz master by night Stephen puts the EVENT in events (and is not ashamed to state that publicly). Always armed with a random fact or sassy comment he’s on hand to keep camp motivation high at all times. Twitter: @MyBookishLife

Demet – The Captain

Berlin born and raised, Demet is a big city girl with big city dreams and purple hair.
As an audio book connoisseur and all-round rebel, she also has the tendency to paint tiny book covers on her nails and to convince people to join her in crazy projects.                                Twitter: @Books_Polished

Melisa – Social Ninja

Dutch country girl moved to London to pursue her publishing dreams. Big time social ninja day and night. Both a workaholic and occasionally lazy. Can often be found perusing Netflix or with her nose in a book. Loves to quote either Disney or Harry Potter depending on what the situation calls for. Or both. Both’s good.

Lorna – The Apprentice

A smallish girl with biggish dreams, Lorna is Camp YA’s resident wordsmith. Originally Australian, the now fully integrated Londoner loves to read, write, perform, and lip sync badly to songs in the mirror. Twitter: @Lornathepoet

Stef – Editing Fairy

Journalist by day and multi-faceted nerd by night, Stef is the bilingual voice of reason and grammar in the Camp YA Team. If she’s not at work, twirling around a dance studio, or sitting in a theatre, she’s probably reading. Or knitting. Or learning another language. Or, realistically, having a nap.

Dani – Tech Witch

Dani is our team tech witch, originally from South Africa and usually based in London (but now in SA thanks to lockdown). By day, she works in the tech industry, but by night, she’s a reader, crafter, and gamer. She’s been blogging for over 5 years, mostly at DaniReviewsThings.com. Twitter: @dani_reviews

Jacky – Media Mermaid

Jacky is a Russian American author who lives in Berlin. She has a husky named Laika (like the space dog!) and she likes to spend hours on Pinterest pretending to be Martha Stewart. She co-authors sultry paranormal romance under the pen Caedis Knight, writes about dark boarding schools, and edits scripts for clients. Jacky is our resident media advisor.
