Julie Lythcott-Haims, bestselling author of How to Raise an Adult, served as dean of freshmen and undergraduate advising at Stanford University, where she received the Dinkelspiel Award for her contributions to the undergraduate experience. She holds a BA from Stanford, a JD from Harvard Law School, and an MFA in writing from California College of the Arts. She is a member of the San Francisco Writers’ Grotto, and resides in the Bay Area with her husband, their two teenagers, and her mother.

Maggie Shen King is the author of An Excess Male (Harper Voyager), one of The Washington Post's 5 Best Science Fiction and Fantasy Novels of 2017. She is Goodreads September 2017 Debut Author the Month. Her short stories have appeared in Ecotone, ZYZZYVA, Asimov’s Science Fiction, and Fourteen Hills. Her manuscript Fortune's Fools, won Second Prize in Amazon's 2012 Breakthrough Novel Award. She grew up in Taiwan, moved to Seattle at age 16, and studied English literature at Harvard College.

Julie Barton is the New York Times bestselling author of DOG MEDICINE, HOW MY DOG SAVED ME FROM MYSELF (Penguin, 2016). She has a B.A. from Kenyon College, an M.F.A. in Writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts, and an M.A. in Women’s Studies from Southern Connecticut State University. She lives, writes, and teaches in Northern California with her husband, two daughters, and a small menagerie of pets. You can find out more about her at byjuliebarton.com.

Paula Treick DeBoard holds an MFA from the University of Southern Maine and divides her time between writing and teaching. Her novels include The Drowning Girls, The Fragile World, The Mourning Hours and her most recent venture, Here We Lie (2018), which “particularly resonates now, in the throes of the #MeToo movement” (Booklist). She teaches in the Merritt Writing Program at UC Merced, and is a fiction faculty member at Go Deep, a yoga and writing retreat in the Sierra Nevadas. Following the mantra that truth is stranger than fiction, Paula considers all of life to be material for writing. She once painted the entire exterior of her home because someone told her she couldn’t, and in 2016 she was a guest on a horror and thriller writing panel at Comic Con in San Diego. She spends her spare time with her husband Will and two small dogs with surprisingly vicious barks.
