Donor Introductions: Day Six!

Hello all! Hope your weekends were all bright and shiny.

I'm happy to present to you the next batch of superb donors for next week's Writers For Hope Auction to benefit RAINN!

Ava Jae is a writer, artist and editorial intern represented by Louise Fury of The Bent Agency. She writes NA and YA novels because she loves writing about self-discovery and the complicated worlds of young people. Then she likes to take their emotionally ridden lives, rip them apart, and set them on fire. She also has an addiction to movies, but thats another matter entirely. You can find her weekly musings on her blog Writability, follow her on Twitter and tumblr or like her Facebook page.

DONATED PRIZE: Query and First Five Pages Critique

Brenda Drake, the youngest of three children, grew up an Air Force brat and the continual new kid at school until her family settled in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Brenda’s fondest memories growing up is of her eccentric, Irish grandmother’s animated tales, which gave her a strong love for storytelling. So it was only fitting that she would choose to write young adult and middle grade novels with a bend toward the fantastical. When Brenda’s not writing or doing the social media thing, she’s haunting libraries, bookstores, and coffee shops or reading someplace quiet and not at all exotic (much to her disappointment).

She is represented by Peter Knapp at Park Literary.
