The WWAT Crew is a critique group made up of M.M. Cox, L.M. Fry, Gretchen KaupJessica Toman,  and John Davidson.

Jessica Lyn Toman writes middle grade and young adult novels. She is a lover of the N.Y. Giants, learning, and cruising with her family. Her bookshelf is stocked with folklore, poetry and recently graphic novels. A former chemistry teacher; she loves colorful and stinky reactions. One day she hopes for a lab coat with her name and number on the back. She’d rock it with goggles and enter the room to Thomas Tolby’s She blinded me with Science. Jessica is mother of two and a proud military spouse. She bounces around the country ready for adventure and searching for inspiration.

Jessica is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Her short story, “Foundations,” earned tenth place in 2011 Scare the Dickens out of us contest put on by Dr. Eugene Clark Library in Lockhart, Texas.

John Davidson was born and raised in the middle of Oklahoma. After a stint of college baseball and playing musical majors (none of those involved music), he attended the University of Central Oklahoma where he received a BA in English and MA in Creative Writing. He traded one passion for another and put aside his love of creative writing to teach junior high and high school students before moving on to work in educational technology. He’s since returned to his first love, and hopes that his YA Contemp BRICKS, published by Anaiah Press in Feb of 2015 will be the first of a gazillion more. His most favorite books to write are YA and MG sci-fi and fantasy, and he’s recently tried his hand at writing funny stuff. He is an active member of SCBWI.

L.M. Fry’s passion in life is telling stories to her three children. Her first book, The Soulseer, was self-published in 2012, and she’s been writing ever since. Aside from her family, she loves reading, writing, and everything artsy. Although she’s lived in Oklahoma for the past 18 years, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada will always be home. She’s an active member of SCBWI and the Oklahoma Writer’s Federation, a blogger for WWAT, and co-founder of the Edmond Novel Writer’s Critique Group.

G.K. Kaup has enjoyed living most of her adult life in the Land of the Eagles, otherwise known as Albania. After nine years of teaching international middle schoolers and high schoolers every subject except math, she decided to take a break and return to the States.

 Currently she volunteers with No Boundaries International, a non-profit that raises awareness about human trafficking and mobilizes communities to bring change. When she’s not working in the food pantry, tutoring at the elementary school, or doing awareness programs with teens, then she’s writing. It was her students’ passion for current literature that motivated her to start crafting novels.

 She is an active member of SCBWI and the Edmond Novel Writers’ Critique Group, both of which have brought learning and encouragement.
