While I could go on and on here about how awesome all these donors are, you didn't come here to read my incessant gushing - especially if you're someone who has spoken to me at any point in the past two weeks, because you've been listening to it nonstop - no, you're here to actually meet these fabulous people. So, I won't take up anymore of your time.
But they are all awesome.
There, I got that off my chest. Feeling much better. And now on to our donors!

Donation: Query Critique
Ronni Arno writes middle-grade and young adult novels, because she thinks kids are cool, and so are the books they read. Her debut, RUBY REINVENTED, publishes with Simon & Schuster/Aladdin in Fall 2015. Her second book, POPPY SEEDS, publishes with Simon & Schuster/Aladdin in Summer 2016. Ronni lives on the coast of Maine, where she stalks her kids for story ideas, kayaks and eats chocolate...but not usually at the same time.
