Stephan Lee in conversation with Emma Lord
for the virtual launch of K-POP CONFIDENTIAL
September 15 at 4pm PST/ 7pm EST.
In celebration of the launch of K-POP CONFIDENTIAL (9/15/20), debut YA author Stephan Lee and Emma Lord, author of TWEET CUTE and the upcoming YOU HAVE A MATCH (1/5/21), will have a gabfest about discovering the fascinating world of K-pop, writing romance, using social media as a major plot device, and whatever else you’re curious about! So listen to some BTS and Blackpink, come with questions, and get ready to get REAL nerdy with Emma and Stephan.
Emma Lord is a digital media editor and writer living in New York City, where she spends whatever time she isn't writing either running or belting show tunes in community theater. She graduated from the University of Virginia with a major in psychology and a minor in how to tilt your computer screen so nobody will notice you updating your fan fiction from the back row. She was raised on glitter, grilled cheese, and a whole lot of love. Her sun sign is Hufflepuff, but she is a Gryffindor rising.
