A huge thanks to those who work behind the scenes to make the Boise Book Fest such a success!


Priya Kanaparti is the Founder of Boise Book Fest. She lives in the beautiful city of Boise, ID.  Unlike what most believe about Idaho, it’s more than a sack full of potatoes. When she’s not writing, you’ll catch Priya reading YA and NA books, mostly romance, and enjoying time with her family. She is a proud CW TV addict.

The Dracian Legacy is her first YA paranormal romance series. She strongly believes that true love conquers all and that’s a common theme you’ll find within her novels.

She also write Mature YA and New Adult romance under the name Clara Stone. She is published through Reuts Publications.

Event Coordinator Event Coordinator

Michael Cluff is an incessant tinkerer and perfectionist who fills his non-writing time with things like editing, board game design, smoking BBQ, and corporate accountability. (Day job. Don’t ask.) A longtime freelancer and literary magazine editor, Michael is a sucker for classics, fantasy, and light science fiction, but has been on a big YA kick for the last few years. That doesn’t mean he is on the YA bandwagon, though that could be argued.

Social Media Coordinator

David is an authorpreneur determined to discover the natural evolution of digital storytelling. His published works span across all ages and several genres. Mostly, he enjoys exploding things. If you‘ve read for twenty pages and nothing has been blown up or shot, then David must be losing his edge. David’s influences include Frank Herbert, Roald Dahl, Cormac McCarthy, Orson Scott Card, Elmer Kelton, Sergio Leone, Joss Whedon and Ronald Moore. Enjoy the show!
