LA Times Festival of Books

I love moderating panels.

No, seriously. Hang on. I know what you’re thinking: “Panels are TERRIBLE!”

Not when I do them. For real. I was b-o-r-n to moderate panels. It’s in the top five list of Things I Like To Do Most.

From 2007-2011, I worked with SCBWI as Director of Communications and found that I loved to moderate panels with authors, editors, and agents. Probably my acting experience has something to do with this, but mainly, I am passionate about the subject matter, and kicking ideas around in front of an audience.

In addition to events for SCBWI, each year since 2009, I’ve been the emcee for the Young Adult stage at the L.A. Times Festival of Books, and in 2012, moderated panels at WeHo Book Fair.
