Speaker: Jen Fisher

Jen Fisher is a wife and homeschool mom who loves to read, write and bake. Known for her hot pink hair and witty banter, she’s been blogging for 4 years at Jenuine Cupcakes, which is also the name of her self-owned and recently incorporated business. When she doesn’t have her nose stuck in a book or frosting on her hands, she can be found discussing her latest YA finds with anyone who’ll listen, preferably over a cupcake.


Speaker: Hannah McBride

Hannah McBride is the owner and creator of The Irish Banana Review. Founded in February 2011, her blog focuses primarily on promoting and reviewing young adult novels, but also has a mix of middle grade, new adult, and adult fiction as well. When she’s not obsessing over books (and an unhealthy amount of TV), she is a Research Assistant in an asthma & allergy office. While she hopes of one day publishing her own novel, right now she enjoys devouring all the books she can get her hands on and getting others to fall in love with reading.


Speaker: Stephanie Sinclair

Stephanie Sinclair began reviewing books on Goodreads in 2010 and quickly gained a following, becoming a Best Reviewer of all time. Two years later she decided to plague the internet on a wider scale and co-founded Cuddlebuggery, a blog with a strong focus on Young Adult literature dedicated to corrupting the reading community with sinister shenanigans. She is also an editor at Young Adult Books Central and YA blogger at Tor.com where she co-writes The YA Roundup.


Speaker: Stacey

Stacey is the author of the Mortal Enchantment series, a former publicist, and of course, a book blogger. Her blog, Fantasy Book Addict, features fantasy, paranormal and science fiction books in young adult, new adult and adult genres. When not writing or blogging, she’s participated in panels for various book events such as Book Expo America and the Virginia Festival of the Book. She’s also taught publicity and social media courses through Savvy Authors and the Romance Writers Association.
