Donor Introductions: Day Nine!

Welcome back! We're nearing the end of our donor list and the buckets of awesome just keep on coming. 

Catherine McCall, author of Never Tell: A True Story of Overcoming a Terrifying Childhood, is also a regular blogger for Psychology Today Magazine. She has been a marriage and family therapist for 30 years, is a Clinical Fellow of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, a member of the Society for the Advancement of Sexual Health, and of the RAINN Speakers Bureau. She lives in a suburb of Atlanta with her husband.

DONATED PRIZE: First Chapter Critique

Nat writes books about teens who like to get themselves in trouble and then expect her to get them out of it. She's completely incapable of planning anything (books, vacations, weekend outings, lunch). She'd like to believe this incapability makes my work random and quirky because let's be honest, she had no idea that was going to happen either. She's represented by Brianne Johnson of Writers House, who can actually turn books into gold.

She love stories. All kinds. Especially ones with antiheroes and/or a tinge of something creepy. She's very interested in why good people are good and bad people are bad and what makes them that way. She likes reversed roles, rules, unexpected humor, sword fights, and puppy dog "Awww" moments.

Nat has also participated as a mentor in Pitch Wars.

DONATED PRIZE: Query Plus First Five Pages Critique

Joy is a middle grade writer represented by Sara Crowe of Harvey Klinger, Inc. She contributes to the group blog Project Mayhem, was a mentor for PitchWars, and works as an assistant to a NYT bestselling middle grade author. She works as a freelance writer and editor, homeschools two children, and eats ridiculous amounts of chocolate. Joy would love to critique any genre of MG or YA (and in a previous life she was an award-winning playwright with a degree in theater from Northwestern University, so if you happen to be writing a play, she would crit that too). Find her at @JMCwrites.

DONATED PRIZE: Full Manuscript Critique
Tune in tomorrow for the last of our illustrious donors!
