Author Ashley Poston loves dread pirates, starry night skies, moving castles, and fanfiction. The self-described “nerdigan” has written several novels that draw from her charmingly nerdy background: Heart of Iron, Soul of Stars, Geekerella, and her latest book The Princess and the Fangirl. The second title in the Once Upon a Con series, The Princess and the Fangirl is a modern take on the classic story The Prince and the Pauper. It was hate at first sight for fangirl Imogen Lovelace and actress Jessica Stone, especially since they look quite alike. But when a script is leaked and Jessica is suspected of it, the two must step into each other’s roles to discover who the real script-leaker is, inexplicably discovering romance in the process. A cute and heartwarming young adult story, The Princess and the Fangirl shows that there is more than one way to live happily ever after
Ashley will be in conversation with fellow young adult writer Leah Thomas. Leah is the author of Because You’ll Never Meet Me, Nowhere Near You, and When Light Left Us. When not writing, she can typically be found teaching or cosplaying.
