The Chapter One Events team is extraordinarily excited to announce our fifth speaker for the 2018 Chapter One Young Writers Conference and inaugural Chapter Twenty-One Conference: Christine Lynn Herman!
Christine Lynn Herman wrote her first book at age six, about a squirrel who hibernated, woke up, and decided to go back to sleep. She has since learned that squirrels do not hibernate. Born in New York City but raised in Japan and Hong Kong, she subscribes to the firm philosophy that home is where her books are. She returned to the United States for college, where she traded out a subtropical climate for harsh, snowy winters and an Honors English degree at the University of Rochester. She now resides in Brooklyn, where she works in publishing by day and writes novels by night.
Her debut YA novel, The Devouring Gray, will release from Disney-Hyperion in Spring 2019, with a sequel to come the following year. She is represented by Kelly Sonnack of the Andrea Brown Literary Agency.
Christine will be co-leading writing workshops at both Ch1Con and Ch21Con, as well as speaking on Ch21Con’s young publishing panel and the conferences’ combined ask anything panel. In honor of Christine speaking at the conferences, we are thrilled to give away a $25 Barnes & Noble gift card!
