Booklovers Panel 2020

23 July 2020     The Camp YA Team     Event

From readers to authors, these book lovers unite to talk about the read they adored growing up and stories that influenced them as authors.

About Alys Arden

Alys Arden was raised by the street performers, tea leaf-readers, and glittering drag queens of the New Orleans French Quarter, an upbringing that fuelled her writing of the Casquette Girls series. Since then, she has worked all over the world, obsessively documenting what she sees.

About Ashley Poston

Ashley Poston is the ultimate fangirl - so much so that she’s written several books on the subject, which have been featured on both the Indie Next and the Rainbow List, as well as in the Goodreads Choice Awards. When not working on her books, Ashley still continues writing – in the form of fanfiction.

About J.R. Johansson

Hide behind your sofa and grab a blanket - J.R. Johansson’s in town. Or, well, camp. J.R. writes horrifying physiological thrillers (all credit towards her abnormal physiology minor) and lives in a sunny valley by the mountains with a hot tub named Valentino.

About Savita Kalhan

An extensive traveller and keen sportswoman, Savita Kalhan writes powerful YA contemporaries and gripping thrillers. When not scribbling in her writing shed, Savita wages war againest an army of slugs in her allotment.
