About the Panelists:

Rachael Rose (@officialrachaelrose) has a passion for literature which led to the writing of her debut novel, Gaslight, which has amassed over ten million reads on Wattpad and recently published with Wattpad Books. When she’s not writing, Rachael can be found teaching, candle-making, or watching quirky romance movies with her two cats.

Loridee De Villa (@summerbackthen) is the author of the Watty Award-winning How to Be the Best Third Wheel, her debut novel that has accumulated 1.6 million reads on Wattpad. She also wrote The Infinite Worlds of Ella Jane, which won the Shaw Rocket Fund Contest in 2020 and is being turned into a theatrical podcast by the film company Shaftesbury. When she’s not typing up a new chapter, Loridee spends her days drawing, sewing, and watching cartoons.

Romi Moondi (@romimoondi) primarily writes romantic comedies that make you laugh, activate your heartstrings, and maybe even make your eyes produce some salty discharge. Her novel 24 Hours in Paris has over two million reads on Wattpad and will be released by Wattpad's new women's fiction imprint, W by Wattpad Books in May. When she's not writing, Romi can be found dreaming up screenplays, watching Seinfeld and traveling.
