Girls Gone SciFi in San Diego
Mysterious Galaxy, Friday, March 20, 2015 at 7:30pm
Jessica Brody Jessica Khoury Debra Driza Melissa Landers Claudia Gray
SciFi YA extravaganza in San Diego! Blast off for adventure with young adult authors Jesssica Brody (Unchanged), Claudia Gray (A Thousand Pieces of You), Jessica Khoury (Kalahari), Melissa Landers (Invaded), and Debra Driza (MILA 2.0: Renegade). Unchanged completes the thrilling SF trilogy started in Jessica’s Unremembered; fans are encouraged to check out the ebook short, “Unleashed,” as wel, for more insights into the mysterious Diotech Compound. Bestseller Claudia’s A Thousand Pieces of You is blurbed as “Orphan Black meets Cloud Atlas in the first book of this epic dimension–bending trilogy about a girl who must chase her father’s killer through multiple dimensions.” The Corpus Files that Jessica began with Origin in the depths of the Amazon rainforest and continued with Vitro in the South Pacific islands now takes readers to the wilds of Botswana with Kalahari. Linda’s review of Melissa’s Alienated reads, “Appealing to science fiction and YA readers, a plot with a forbidden love theme involving intergalactic exchange students allows Landers to discuss important issues such as teen romance, peer pressure, trust and acceptance of those a little bit different from ourselves.” The story continues in Invaded. The 2015 version of San Diego author Debra will captain the ride!

Teen Advisory Board's Teen Author Bash ~ June 6
Hicklebee's, Friday, June 6, 2014 at 7pm
Teen Advisory Board x Terrific Author Bash = TAB squared! June 6 @ 7:00
Hanging out in a room full of published authors, for a night of book talks and signings? Sounds like every bookworm’s dream come true. Nobody knows this better than the Hicklebee’s Teen Advisory Board…which is why we’re hosting our TAB squared Event, a bash for bookworms, their friends, teachers, and everyone who wants one-on-one time with awesome authors!
Bay Area favorites attending the bash will be Hannah Jane, Douglas Rees, Katherine Longshore, Stephanie Kuehn, Corrine Jackson, and Debra Driza.
Come to Hicklebee's for a chance to meet these fantastic authors, learn about the hottest summer teen reads, and win great prizes.
Please call or sign up here to reserve your spot so we have plenty of prizes and treats for you! 408-292-8880 Corrine Jackson Once upon a time, Corrine worked as a graphic designer before she switched to account management at one of the country’s top marketing agencies. She has a deep and abiding love for Anthropologie and intends to move into her nearest store when the employees aren’t looking and/or she can get her hands on a key (which she expects to find in one of their bins).
In my teens, I fell in love with theater. I wanted to act. On the stage. I loved the hush of the crowd, the sticky odor of pancake makeup and the dusty resin of wax on the stage floor. I loved to be able to look out over the audience, the flash of glasses reflecting the stage lights. I loved to hear their laughter. But mostly, I loved losing myself in a character made of words. To make that character live and breathe. Now, that is magic.
Douglas Rees Until I was six, I wanted to be a fireman. Between six and twelve, I wanted to be a paleontologist. When I was twelve, I decided I wanted to be a writer. I still haven't outgrown that.
I grew up in Berkeley, California, which is a quirky sort of a place with a ton of wonderful bookstores. My very first job was working in one of those bookstores, and I’ve been a freakishly avid reader for as long as I can remember. Back then, some of the books that had the greatest impact on my life were young adult novels, and now, as an adult, I’ve found my own passion in writing books for teens.
Hannah Jayne Hannah Schwartz lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and writes cozy mysteries, young adult fiction, chick lit, and grocery lists that she never seems to remember to bring to the grocery store. Hannah shares a house with two neurotic, feet-attacking cats and has Kryptonite-like weakness for donuts. Debra Driza is a member of the teen lit blogging groups the Bookanistas and The League of Extraordinary Writers, and a former practicing physical therapist who discovered tormenting her characters was infinitely more enjoyable. These days you can find her at home, adding random colors to her hair and wrangling one husband, two kids, and an assortment of Rhodesian Ridgebacks (most of them naughty).

Join us for an evening with some of your favorite YA authors, as they discuss and sign some of their latest books!
Shannon Messenger graduated from the USC School of Cinematic Arts where she learned--among other things--that she liked watching movies much better than making them. She's studied art, screenwriting, and television production, but realized her real passion was writing for kids and teens. Her middle grade series, KEEPER OF THE LOST CITIES, is published by Simon & Schuster (Aladdin) and her YA series, Let the Sky Fall, is published by Simon Pulse. She lives in Southern California with her husband and an embarrassing number of cats. Find her online at shannonmessenger.com.
Debra Driza is a member of the teen lit blogging group the Bookanistas and a former practicing physical therapist, who discovered tormenting her characters was infinitely more enjoyable. These days you can find her at home in California, adding random colors to her hair and wrangling one husband, two kids, and an assortment of Rhodesian Ridgebacks. MILA 2.0 is her first novel.
Amy Tintera writes novels for young adults. She grew up in Austin, Texas and graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in journalism. After receiving a masters in film at Emerson College she moved to Los Angeles, where she promptly discovered she didn't enjoy working in the film industry, and went back to her first love, writing. Her debut, Reboot, is out now from HarperCollins/HarperTeen, with the sequel to follow in 2014.
Kasie West, as a stay-at-home mom of four children, three of them girls, ranging in age from twelve to four, hears lots of melodramatic versions of large-than-life events. She graduated with a BA in liberal studies, with a strong focus on linguistics and psychology, from Fresno State University. She lives in Fresno, CA.
In order to have anything signed at a BookPeople event, a copy of the event book must be purchased from BookPeople. If you purchase your book from BookPeople in advance of the event, please save your receipt and present it at the event.

About the Authors:
Debra Driza is the newest member of blogging group YA Highway, and a former physical therapist who much prefers torturing characters.

MILA 2.0 is her first novel in a sci-fi thriller trilogy from HarperCollins.
Shannon Messenger has studied art, screenwriting, and television production, but realized her real passion was writing for kids and teens. She's the author of the middle grade series, KEEPER OF THE LOST CITIES, and Let the Sky Fall, the first in a new series for young adults. She lives in Southern California with her husband and an embarrassing number of cats. Find her online at shannonmessenger.com.
Amy Tintera grew up in Texas and now lives in Los Angeles, California. She has degrees in journalism and film and can usually be found staring into space, dreaming up ways to make her characters run for their lives. Reboot is her debut novel.
Kasie West lives with her family in central California, where the heat tries to kill her with its 115-degree stretches. She graduated from Fresno State University with a BA degree that has nothing to do with writing. She's the author of Pivot Point and The Distance Between Us.
