Annabelle Gurwitch
Annabelle Gurwitch
Actress and activist Annabelle Gurwitch is the author, most recently, of The New York Times Bestseller, I See You Made an Effort (Plume, March 2015). Kirkus Reviews named Effort in their 9 Books Guaranteed to Make You Laugh List, while NPR says it's “a seriously funny collection of essays...hilarious and laced with sharp wit.” Annabelle gained a loyal comedic following during her many years hosting Dinner and a Movie on TBS.
Melissa Cutler
Melissa Cutler
Melissa Cutler knows she has the best job in the world writing sexy, contemporary romances and romantic suspense for a variety of publishers, including Macmillan, Berkley, Kensington Books, and Harlequin. She was struck at an early age by an unrelenting travel bug and is probably planning her next vacation as you read this. When she's not globetrotting, she's enjoying Southern California's flip-flop wearing weather and wrangling two rambunctious kids.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the appearance of Anne Perry cannot be confirmed at this time
