CHAZ BRENCHLEY (aka DANIEL FOX) - Chaz
Brenchley has been making a living as a writer since he was eighteen. He is the author of nine thrillers, most recently Shelter, and two major fantasy series: The Books of Outremer, based on the world of the Crusades, and Selling Water by the River, set in an alternate Ottoman Istanbul.As Daniel Fox, he first went to Taiwan at the millennium and became obsessed, to the point of learning Mandarin and writing about the country in three different genres. The result: the books Dragon in Chains, and Jade Man's Skin. Daniel Fox weaves the ancient myths and legends of feudal China into a fantasy world of brutal war and brittle passion,
immortal gods and mystical creatures.

MALINDA LO - a local author with one of the
most astonishing and remarkable debut novels out there, Ash. A beautifullywritten and fully realized retelling of Cinderalla...with a twist. Ash is a starred selection of the ABA's Rainbow List, it is a nominee for the Andre Norton Award, was a finalist for the 2010 William C. Morris Award, and was a Kirkus Best Young Adult Novel of 2009. Formerly an entertainment reporter, Malina was awarded the 2006 Sarah Pettit Memorial Award for Excellence in LGBT Journalism by the National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association. She is a graduate of Wellesley College and has master's degrees from Harvard and Stanford universities.

Each author will read a selection of their work, followed by Q & A moderated
by author Terry Bisson. Booksigning and schmoozing in the lounge
afterwards.
