NoVaTeen is a book festival put on every year in the DC area by One More Page Books and a couple of county libraries (there’s several counties all clustered together around here).

Annie Jackson is a young adult author. Occasionally a bit techie, often a geek and always a lover of stories. Sometimes in her day job she designs software. Once upon a time she made tv shows (not, you know, by herself obviously). But always, behind the scenes, no matter the job that paid the bills, stories were the real work. The fun stuff.
With two published novels and more on the way, Annie is beginning to pave her way in the publishing industry. Along the way she has explored the legacy of fairy tales (it’s not at all what you think), produced an audiobook that features a full cast and defied use of the Oxford comma.
Her blog explores the struggles of writing, lessons from tv shows, films and other books, perspectives on character and plot and rather random forays around the world.
