Welcome Debra Driza & Emilia Plater!

Hey everyone! We are so excited to welcome two additional YA Highway bloggers.

Emilia Plater 

Emilia Plater is returning to YA Highway after a 6-month hiatus (and is officially no longer a teen! *sob*). Emilia's currently a Sociology major at Vassar College. Her favorite things include baby animals, cheese, backpacking to random places, and planning for her future life as a crazy cat lady. Plus writing, but that's kind of repetitive, isn't it?

She's represented by Suzie Townsend of New Leaf Literary.

Debra Driza is brand spanking new, but a longtime close friend of many of us here at YA Highway. Deb is a former physical therapist who much prefers torturing characters. She's particularly fond of sweets, adding random colors to her hair, Rhodesian Ridgebacks, and teen TV. Please don't ask her to locate anything in her purse, aka "the black hole of doom."

She's represented by Taylor Martindale of Full Circle Literary. Her debut YA sci-fi thriller, MILA 2.0, was just published by Katherine Tegen Books.

Keep an eye out for Emilia & Debra's YA Highway posts -- both these girls are HILARIOUS!
