About the Faculty

YA author, K.R. (KATE) CONWAY has been a writer since 1999 when several newspaper editors lost their minds and hired her as a journalist. She is best known, however, for her Urban Fantasy series, Undertow, which reads like a mash-up of Jaws and The Goonies. Awards, nominations, and features include Barnes and Noble’s Seven Terrifying Summer Reads for Teens (2015), Teen Ink Magazine’s Best Picks, Girl’s Life Magazine Cool Winter Reads, Indie Recon Live, YALSA, Cybil, Goodreads, IRDA, and others.

Conway, who is a member of SCBWI and a vlogger / writer for the Institute of Writers, lives on Cape Cod with her equally weird family and a strange assortment of critters. She carried a BA Cum Laude Psi Chi in Forensic Psychology from Mount Holyoke College. When not writing, Conway drives a forty-foot Loser Cruiser that smells like forgotten Pony sneakers from the 80s.

MICK CARLON: After three decades in the public school classroom, I am thrilled and honored that my three novels are now in the curriculum of 100+ schools across the country. The legendary Nat Hentoff says: “Mick Carlon’s novels are unique in the history of Jazz. Nothing like them had yet been attempted, and they are turning on countless young people to the glories and stories of our music.” My website is here: MICK CARLON.COM
