YARWA Members - A

Emily Albright


I'm a major bookworm, a lover of romantic movies, a Netflix junkie, a wife, a mother, and an owner of one adorable (yet slightly insane) cockapoo and one very tolerant cat. My debut young adult novel, THE HEIR AND THE SPARE, is coming from Merit Press in early 2016. I'm represented by the wonderful Jessica Watterson of the Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency.

Denise Alicea


Born to the great lively city of Manhattan, NY, and raised in quiet Connecticut. Denise started writing when drawing and painting were not enough. Deciding to try a new type of medium, she thought to start with poetry. After her first success and first reading at the age of fifteen. Her writing began to take on new life with her own worlds of fantasy, time travel, action, adventure and of course romance. She draws inspiration from her favorite childhood cartoons and experiences to her current day ones. When not writing, Denise loves technology, reading (romance, YA, anime, nonfiction, fiction) , blogging, watching movies and TV shows and of course volunteering for many RWA chapters. She also enjoys blogging at her personal blog and book review blog at The Pen & Muse.
