Writing for the YA Market: A Fangs Optional Workshop
Tutor Kaz Delaney
Award winning YA & children’s author, Kaz Delaney, and her alter ego, Kerri Lane have currently sold 72 books between them. Kaz’s current title The Reluctant Jillaroo (Allen & Unwin reader age 11-14) ) is a departure, being an Australian rural romance – the subgenre that’s become a firm favourite with both Australian and overseas readers. Her crossover novel Dead Actually, (A&U, reader age 14+) was the recipient of the ARRA Award for Favourite Paranormal, and the Aurealis Award for Best Young Adult Novel, and was long listed for a Davitt Award in the children’s/YA section. Lake Macquarie resident Kaz divides her time between teaching and writing.
