Name your Top 5 authors you’d like to meet?

Gail Carriger
Gail Carriger writes comedies of manners mixed with steampunk and urban fantasy (plus sexy queer romance as G. L. Carriger). Her books include the Parasol Protectorate, Custard Protocol, Tinkered Stars, and San Andreas Shifter series for adults, and the Finishing School series for young adults. She is published in many languages, has over a million books in print, over a dozen New York Times and USA Today bestsellers, and starred reviews in Publishers Weekly, Booklist, Kirkus, and Romantic Times.

Her debut made Audible’s Best list, was a Publishers Weekly Best Book, an IndieBound Notable, and a Locus Recommended Read. She has received the ALA’s Alex Award, the Prix Julia Verlanger, the Elbakin Award, the Steampunk Chronicle’s Reader’s Choice Award, and a Starburner Award. She was once an archaeologist and is fond of shoes, cephalopods, and tea.

L.G. Rollins
L. G. Rollins has always loved a heart-melting happily ever after. It didn’t matter if the story took place in Regency England, in outer space, beneath the Earth’s crust, or in a cobbler’s shop, if there was a sweet romance, she would read it.

​Life has given her many of her own adventures. Currently she lives in the Rocky Mountains with her best-friend, who is also her husband, and their four beautiful children. She still loves to read books and more books; her favorite types of music are classical, Broadway, and country; she’d rather be hiking the mountains than twiddling her thumbs on the beach; and she’s been known to debate with her oldest son about whether Infinity is better categorized as a number or an idea.
