Jaye Wells

After several years as a magazine editor and freelance writer, Jaye Wells finally decided to leave the facts behind and make up her own reality. Her overactive imagination and life-long fascination with the arcane and freakish blended nicely with this new career path. Her Sabina Kane urban fantasy series is a blend of dark themes, grave stakes and wicked humor. Jaye lives in Texas with her saintly husband and devilish son.

7:00pm - 9:00pm

Pseudonym: C.C. Hunter.

Photojournalist, Author and Speaker
Christie Craig grew up in Alabama, where she caught lightning bugs, ran barefoot, and regularly rescued potential princes, in the form of Alabama bullfrogs, from her brothers. Today, she is still fascinated with lighting bugs, mostly wears shoes, but has turned her focus to rescuing mammals instead of amphibians. She currently lives in Texas, with her four cats, her teenage son, and a prince of a husband, who for the record, is not a frog. She is an award-winning, multi-published novelist and writer whose non-fiction and photography have appeared in over three thousand national magazines. After selling four books in one day, she has gained a reputation for writing romance fiction that has both a witty humor and suspenseful, sexy tone.

11:00am - 3:00pm

Lunch in the French Room with Meg Cabot. Books will be sold and she's signing.

Pseudonym for Meggin Cabot.
Pseudonym: Patricia Cabot.

Meg Cabot was born in Bloomington, Indiana—the heart of America. Her childhood was spent in pursuit of air conditioning, which she found at the Monroe County Public Library. Here Meggin whiled away many hours, reading the complete works of Jane Austen, Judy Blume, and Barbara Cartland.

Armed with a fine arts degree from Indiana University, she moved to New York City, and got a job as the assistant manager of an undergraduate dormitory at New York University, writing on the weekends (and whenever her boss wasn't looking). The first of her many historical romance novels written under the name Patricia Cabot, Where Roses Grow Wild, was published in 1998, followed shortly after by its sequel, Portrait of my Heart. An Improper Proposal and A Little Scandal followed shortly thereafter.

In addition to her romances, Meg is currently working on several series of books for young adult readers, including The Princess Diaries, The Mediator (under the name Jenny Carroll) and 1-800-WHERE-R-YOU (also by Jenny Carroll).

Film rights to The Princess Diaries were sold to Disney, and a feature length film based on the book was released in August 2001, with Pretty Woman's Garry Marshall directing, and starring Julie Andrews, among others. Film rights to All-American Girl have also been sold to Disney and a script is being written. Television rights for The Mediator series have been sold, and 1-800-WHERE-R-U was recently optioned by Lions Gate Films.

Meg lives in New York City with her husband and their one- eyed cat, Henrietta.
