YAB Fest (the Young Adult Book Fest) is this Saturday (May 11) in Round Rock, Texas! I have the privilege of moderating the OUT OF THIS WORLD Panel, which is appropriately named because there are such amazing authors on it! (Also, our books all feature fantasy/sci fi worlds). My fellow panelists are so cool that I decided to feature one of them every day until the start of the festival. (Also, this is my first time moderating a panel. I’m slightly nervous about it, so I’ve decided to error on the side of overachieving).

Today’s featured OUT OF THIS WORLD Panelist is . . .

Isn’t she adorable?

Krissi is the author of the PHANTOM ISLAND Series, a YA fantasy series that I am an enormous fan of! There are four books in the series so far (WINDCHASER, WINDFALL, WATERCROSSING and WATERMARK) and there are more coming, so feel free to fall in love – you’ll have plenty of material to keep you reading! She also has many exciting projects forthcoming which I am not allowed to talk about too much (but trust me, there is lots of awesomeness coming from this girl!). Krissi lives in the Dallas/Fort Worth area with her husband Sam and their Yorkies. She is known on the Texas festival/conference circuit for her great writing, her fabulous hair, and her wonderful way with readers. Krissi and I have been on many panels together in the past, so I am really looking forward to bossing her around at YAB Fest, now that I finally get to be the Panelist-in-Charge!

For more on Krissi, explore her website! She has lots of cool features on there, including a wordcounter for her works in progress (so you can stalk her, like I do, to find out when the next Phantom Island book is going to be finished!), a Fan Headquarters where you can figure out which island tribe you belong to, a shop, and lots of other fun stuff! Krissi is also very active on Facebook and Twitter.

Come and see Krissi, her fellow panelists on the OUT OF THIS WORLD Panel, and all of the other amazing authors in attendance at YAB FEST this Saturday in Round Rock!
