I’m super-excited about the group of writers that has come together to share what they know and love about writing — and about the Pacific Northwest.
Here’s who you’ll see when the book comes out this spring.
Mary Andonian, screenwriter: author of Bitsy’s Labyrinth and film coordinator for Willamette Writers
Patricia Briggs, novelist: New York Times bestselling author of urban fantasy books, including the Mercy Thompson and Alpha and Omega series
J. Anderson Coats, novelist: author of the debut historical young adult novel The Wicked and the Just
Sage Cohen, poet: author of The Productive Writer, a book I love
Cricket Daniel, playwright: writer of Couples Therapy and Helen on Wheels, living in Bend, Oregon, and has a serious love for sitcoms (like me)
Diane Raptosh, poet: former poet laureate of Boise, Idaho, and Eyck-Berringer Endowed Chair in English at The College of Idaho
Greg Rucka, graphic novelist: known for Whiteout and Queen & Country
L.J. Sellers, novelist: mystery writer in Eugene, Oregon, whose blog I’ve been following since it was titled “Write First, Clean Later”
Suzanne Williams, children’s writer: writer of children’s books, including the Goddess Girls, Heroes in Training, and Grimmtastic Girls series she co-authors with Joan Holub
Eric Witchey, novelist and short story writer: writing trainer who has given workshops for Willamette Writers and Pacific Northwest Writers Association, among many others. I’ve attended a couple of his workshops, and I recommend them without reservation.
