Jennifer Carney is a writer by way of New England, the Ozarks, and Southern California. Her accent is ridiculous. She’s currently the Features Editor for The Vinyl District, an international online music magazine with a cool indie record store finding app. When she’s not chatting up rock stars, she loves contributing to ATWN– almost as much as she loves the Red Sox.
Caitlin Rantala writes YA fantasy. She lives in Nashville and predictably works in the music industry. She drinks too much
Diet Coke and will stop you on the street if you walk by her with a Great Dane. Caitlin is repped by Carly Watters of PS Literary.
I’m a teen, sci-fi, and contemporary fiction author represented by Nicole Resciniti. I also post over at YA Stands, hang out on Twitter too much, and sporadically blog on my personal page. I love all things music and books. My two boys will tell you I’m an atrocious gamer but a decent baker. They’re right.

Josh Hewitt loves jazz music, drinking, and stories with unexpected endings. He lives in Tupelo, MS with his wife (a Disney-phile) and two kids, one a budding superhero, the other a soon to be nun. He also has an unhealthy obsession with self-important douches. He also hates soup with the fury of a million white hot suns. He also sometimes gets buddy Megan Whitmer to write his bios.

Besides being a short (five feet zero inches) aspiring YA author, Kristi is mom to one totally adorable kidlet, owner of one neurotic Boxer dog, and wife to one VERY patient man. She loves Red Sox baseball, snowboarding, hiking, all sorts of music, and of course, writing/reading anything she can get her hands on. If you ever meet her in person, there’s a good chance you’ll be hugged. Consider yourself warned.
Eleane is your average North American teenager apart from her not-so-secret obsession with music. If you read that as Elaine, you are so very wrong , but she will understand. Meet her muse, Leonardo DiCatrio.
She can’t even describe her excitement to be a part of the ATWN team. Eleane posts ATWN’s Music News Of The Week every Saturday.
Erica M. Chapman writes YA contemporary/thrillers at night and works for the man by day. Her writing is represented by Christa Heschke of McIntosh & Otis. She loves a good rock concert and has perfected the art of not getting pummeled in a mosh pit. She’s a lifetime Lions and Michigan football fan who LOVES alternative music, Foo Fighters, reading, and playing her guitar. She resides in Michigan where she sits quietly typing her next story on her macbook in a Detroit Lions Snuggie. In addition to All The Write Notes, she’s also a contributor to the YA Misfits blog.

Kelly Polark is the author of four picture books and one middle grade novel. Kelly is a busy married mom of three and a preschool teacher, but she still makes time to sing along at rock concerts now and then. She enjoys sharing celebrity book recommendations at Book Recs of the Rock and Famous and is happy being the newbie at All the Write Notes. Reading rocks!
Ashley Poston enjoys her coffee shaken, not stirred. She can quote The Princess Bride by heart. Fangirl is her middle name. Sometimes she sings in the the shower, sometimes she shatters windows. She attended the University of South Carolina where she went to one too many concerts and not enough classes. But it paid off in the end, because she gets to write about music for a living. Her debut, THE SOUND OF US, is a rockalicious NA fling out now from Bloomsbury Spark.
