He won the Lambda Literary Award for his debut novel Boy Meets Boy. David's most recent book is the just-released 19 Love Songs. He lives in New Jersey where he works with other people’s words as a publisher and editor by day.

Juno Dawson is the multi award-winning author of 11 books, including the best-selling Clean and her recent adult memoir, The Gender Games. Dawson is a regular contributor to Attitude, GT, Glamour and Guardian. A School Role Model for Stonewall, Dawson also works with the charity First Story to visit schools serving low-income communities. Dawson grew up in West Yorkshire, writing imaginary episodes of Doctor Who. She later turned her talent to journalism, writing a weekly serial in a Brighton newspaper. She writes full time and lives in Brighton.

Ryan La Sala grew up in Connecticut, where studied Anthropology and Neuroscience at Northeastern University before becoming a project manager specialized in digital tools. He technically lives in New York City, but has actually transcended material reality and only takes up a human shell for special occasions, like brunch, and to watch anime. Reverie is Ryan’s debut novel.

Darren Charlton is a talented new voice in UK YA fiction. His first novel Wranglestone positively shivers with a chilling, creeping sense of disquiet, and the need to hold those you love close, against all odds. A wonderfully atmospheric and clever commentary on a society in survival mode, with themes of love and acceptance at its heart. He lives in London.
