Then came the day that she had to admit that she’d been consorting with metaphors, then later… characters and dialogue. She left accounting, threw away her watch (purely for the effect) and never looked back.
Both intimate and sweeping, Stay With Me is the story of Yejide and Akin, in love but torn apart by not only their own desire to have children, but the weight of expectation from their families and community. Adebayo s exploration of grief, motherhood and how sometimes you just can t stop loving someone is exquisite.

By fifth grade, Karla began branching out into more original material. She got her first big break writing the book for the class musical, Bytes of Conflict, a high-stakes drama about a missing floppy disk. Though her tragic tale garnered more laughs than tears, the experience ignited Karla’s interest in dramatic writing. She set about filling dozens of notebooks (and floppy disks) with skits, sketches, and full-length plays.
Burning Down the House by Jane Mendelsohn : The author of the 6995s bestseller I Was Amelia Earhart here focuses on a wealthy New York family beset by internal rivalries and an involvement, perhaps unwitting, in a dark underworld of international crime.

Jeff went on to attend Drew University, and despite taking writing courses in college he graduated and became a corporate lackey, doing a quick stint on Wall Street and spending late nights and weekends working on his writing craft, something that kept him sane. As time went by he felt his writing was becoming stronger but wasn’t sure if it was quite there yet. So, like many other fearless, aspiring television writers before him, Jeff chose the most expensive back up plan in the world and went to law school. While law school had many positive effects on Jeff’s writing (structure, lying…sorry storytelling), it also gave him the opportunity to continue to write over breaks, and during the week when he probably should have been studying.
Lauren was born in New York City one minute prior to her twin brother. They spent their early years fighting over what they should watch on TV. Luckily, they could both always agree on Nickelodeon. The twins spent many hours in their suburban living room pretending to be Reggie and Otto from Rocket Power, Cat and Dog from CatDog, Norbet and Dagett from The Angry Beavers, Ren and Stimpy from… you get the idea.
