Introducing the A-Z Joyful Brigade

Monday, March 16, 2015

Today, I’m pleased to introduce my gang on the Joyful Brigade, so without further delay, please meet the team, who’ll tell you about themselves in their own words.

Sheena-Kay Graham
Sheena-kay Graham was never meant for a traditional job behind a desk. So naturally she decided to be a writer who writes from her bed. The love of the written word has always been with her, leading to stories, novels, poetry and way too much fan fiction. She mainly writes YA fiction and is ready to unleash her creativity to wow the masses. With her love for fantasy, magic and young adult novels, her first series is naturally contemporary and written in poetic prose. Her first book Where is Sarah? will be out June 15 and is part of The Missing Girls Series. Sheena blogs at Queendsheena.

Susan Oloier

I have been a part of the A to Z Challenge on and off since 2011. Outside of writing, I am a mom, a wife, and a writer of YA, Adult fiction, and memoir. During my day job, I work with kids in special education, and my younger son has a wide array of medical and special needs. 

I have independently published six books and a screenplay. I also have been published in Inside/Outside Magazine as a columnist, at The Fertile Source, in Cliterature Journal, and at The Daily Beast. My seventh and eighth books should be out later this year. When I have spare moment, I love to read, rock climb, and ride my bike.
