The Romance Bookie (theromancebookie) | 1 comments Hello everyone!
I'm Mandy, and I'm a closet writer!
I love YA books, however, it seems my stories all seem to have characters in their twenties (like me!).
Authors that inspire me:
Meg Cabot (!!! BIG TIME)
Sarah Dessen (I love her realism)
Simone Elkeles (love her characters!)
Jk Rowling (because even though I don't write Paranormal/fantasy, I find her journey to becoming an author inspirational)
Cassandra Clare (just because I LOVE her books)
Kody Keplinger (she is a month younger (21 in August) than me, and already on book #3!! If that's not inspirational I don't know what is!)

I also run a blog under the name The Romance Bookie, if anyone is interested in checking it out!
