Chencia C. Higgins is just a girl from Texas writing about sassy, southern women finding love. In 2019 she won an Emma award for her debut paranormal romance Janine: His True Alpha, and in 2022 her traditionally published debut D’Vaughn and Kris Plan a Wedding was named one of the best romances of the year by the New York Times. When she isn't daydreaming about imaginary people, Chencia can be found with her nose in a book (or two, or three), saving recipes on Pinterest for things she’ll never make, and dreaming of traveling even further south for the winter.

Karmen Lee is a lifelong Southerner living it up in Atlanta, Georgia with her kid, her cats, and humidity. When not packing lunches or working her nine-to-five, she can be found drinking coffee too late at night, watching House Hunters International and dreaming up ways to show her readers a good time.

Originally from Detroit, Frederick Smith is a graduate of the Missouri School of Journalism, Loyola University Chicago, and Loyola Marymount University. He lives in San Francisco. He is the author of In Case You Forgot (co-authored with Chaz Lamar Cruz), Play it Forward, Right Side of the Wrong Bed, and Down For Whatever. For this event, he'll be discussing his latest novel, One and Done, a Black, Queer, Higher Ed, Bay Area romance novel.

Ambassadors of real-life happily-ever-after, Fay and Karelia Stetz-Waters have been together for twenty-three years. They live in Albany, Oregon with their pug-mix Willa Cather and a garden full of dragonflies and hummingbirds. Their writing process involves many afternoons spent at local coffee shops and brewpubs outlining scenes, going over drafts, and high fiving each other.
