I'm thrilled to be a panelist for the YA fiction CYBILS award (see the official announcement ).

The mission of the CYBILS is "to recognize the children’s and young adult authors and illustrators whose books combine the highest literary merit and popular appeal". 

Nominations for your favorite YA books will be open to the public, October 1-15!  So if you have a favorite book of any genre, go here to nominate! 

I'm excited to work with this group of panelists who have a wealth of knowledge about YA books and a passion for reading!
