Bethany Griffin~ The author of the forthcoming novel, Handcuffs, which will be released in December. Yeah, I can't wait. Bethany is also an English teacher and the mother of two toddlers. We bond over our novels and the many ways that children dream up to torture their mothers. I'm psyched to see Bethany at RWA this summer.
Carmen Rodrigues~ Carmen is the author of Not Anything, which is available in stores right now, so go buy tons of copies. Originally from West Palm Beach, Florida (lucky girl!) she is now residing in North Carolina attending UNC.
These two women have meant so much to me during this crazy process of getting (and hopefully staying) published. They gave me confidence in my work when I didn't have any. They gave me courage to send my work out into the world. But most of all, they gave me friendship and a girl can never have enough of that!
