Here is a brief introduction to each of my fellow panelists:
Theresa Hupp is an independent author who has published three historical novels and an essay/poem collection. Her description of teaching herself to write novels was inspirational.
Jennifer Brown is a traditionally published author, most recently on my radar as a 2017 winner of the William Allen White Book Award. Though she is probably best known for her young adult novels, Jennifer also writes women's fiction under the name Jennifer Scott.
Jennifer Haskin is a former literary agent and author. She had a lot of good information about the publishing industry, in general.
It was a fantastic, two-hour event that honestly could have gone at least an hour longer. I have enjoyed exploring the websites and social media pages of my fellow panelists. I look forward to seeing where their writing journeys take them.
Many thanks to Chris Blocker and Miranda Ericsson for the fantastic programming they provide for Kansas authors.
