Teen Fiction Cafe Welcomes 4 New Authors!!!

We at the Teen Fiction Cafe are beyond excited to announce that as of this week, we have 4 brand spankin' new contributors! If you are a regular reader (thank you!), you already know this is the place for some of the most exciting, thought-provoking, and heartfelt discussions in the blogosphere. And if you're a new reader, welcome! Don't be shy about jumping into the conversations. Now, without further ado, I'll answer the big question:


Who the heck are the newest TFCers?





Greg Logsted listens to all kinds of music but especially likes Miles Davis. He wants to be a rock star but needs to learn to play the guitar first. He loves pasta, owns a window washing company, and thinks His Excellency Nelson Mandela is one cool dude. Greg's motto is: "Write hard; live free."


YA titles: Alibi Junior High, Something Happened
MG titles: The Sisters 8 series (with his wife, Lauren Baratz-Logsted and their daughter, Jackie)
Greg will be introducing himself and answering some unique questions for us on Tuesday, so don't miss it!



Josh Berk is living proof that if two librarians breed, their offspring shall become librarians as well. But I have a feeling this ex-band dude (yes, he's one up on you, Greg dear) didn't inherit the quiet gene. Actually, this is obvious if you watch any one of his crazy (in a good way) videos. This is one of my faves: Click HERE And speaking of crazy, he's rocked some pretty outrageous hairstyles. According to Kay Cassidy, he deserves an entire museum devoted to his follicular adventures.

YA Title: The Dark Days of Hamburger Halpin
Come by on Wednesday to get to know Josh a little better!



Elizabeth Scott While Josh is proof that librarian plus librarian equals librarian, Elizabeth is the progeny of two teachers. She's held a wide variety of titles, from professional CD burner to pantyhose (don't you just *love* that word?) saleslady; but unless my journalistic abilities are lacking, she has never been a teacher (though she was in both her parents' classes growing up). Melissa Walker says that Elizabeth backed her up at her very first public reading in Durham, NC. Melissa read from Violet on the Runway and Elizabeth read from Bloom, her first YA novel.


YA Titles: Grace, The Unwritten Rule, Living Dead Girl, Something Maybe, Perfect You, Bloom, Stealing Heaven, Love You Hate You Miss You, ...
Elizabeth will be sharing some interesting tidbits with us on Thursday. See you then!




Jessica Brody Alyson Noel gives us the scoop about fellow California beauty Jessica: "She's a tofu eating, Spice Girls listening, Twilight loving, Good Karma spreading, all around awesome person!" She is also the founder of Free Book Friday, a professional singer (as well as other very cool things I can't wait to learn more about on our blog) and likes playing Guitar Hero. Hmm, would you put your money on Greg or Jessica?


YA Title: The Karma Club (Check out its book trailer featuring Deepak Chopra HERE.)
Jessica will be wrapping the week up for us!



As you can see, this promises to be an exciting week here at the Teen Fiction Cafe. Come by often to welcome and get to know Greg, Josh, Elizabeth, and Jessica!
