Proudly supported by Griffith University.
Australian author Lynette Noni studied journalism, academic writing, and human behaviour at university before venturing into the world of fiction. She is now a full-time writer and the #1 bestselling and award-winning author of The Medoran Chronicles, the Whisper duology, The Prison Healer and The Gilded Cage.
Kathleen Jennings is a writer and illustrator based in Brisbane. Her Australian Gothic debut Flyaway won a British Fantasy Award and was shortlisted for the World Fantasy Award and The Courier-Mail People's Choice Award, among others. Her illustrations have won a World Fantasy Award and been shortlisted for the Hugo Awards.
C.S. Pacat is the USA-Today best-selling author of Dark Rise, the Captive Prince trilogy, and the GLAAD-nominated graphic novels Fence.
Born in Australia and educated at the University of Melbourne, C.S. Pacat has since lived in a number of cities, including Tokyo and Perugia, and currently resides and writes in Melbourne.
A travel agent by day and YA enthusiast, writer and host by night, Samantha's combined interests keep her busy and addicted to coffee. After graduating from a journalism degree and starting a career in travel, she continues to explore her love for the written word by writing whenever she can and working on her own novels. Her favourite books are those that have her fully immersed in another world, and though she is a sucker for an enemies-to-lovers storyline, she will always love the YA classics she grew up with like Divergent, Percy Jackson, and The Hunger Games.
