Meet the 2016 Organizers: Melissa Wiley, YA Fiction Chair

Melissa Wiley fell in love with the Kidlitosphere before it even had a name and has been enthusiastically blogging about her family’s reading life atHere in the Bonny Glen since 2005. She is the author of more than a dozen books for kids and teens (including The Prairie Thief, the Inch and Roly series, and the Martha and Charlotte Little House prequels). In years past, Melissa has served as a first-round Cybils panelist in Fiction Picture Books, Graphic Novels, Book Apps, and YA Fiction. This year she is pleased to take up the mantle of YA Fiction Category Chair and looks forward to a lively Cybils season filled with harrowing, heartening, and humorous books. She is @melissawiley on Twitter and @bonnyglen on Instagram.
