I am taking a YA Lit class and have a project coming up where I am researching cross over writers. I know a few- James Patterson, JK Rowling, and PC Cast. Can you help me with others? All genres are welcome and book titles would be a great help.

Gena Showalter has a few teen books out White Rabbit Chronicles and Everlife.

Rachel Vincent has Soul Screamers series.

Sherrilyn Kenyon has Chronicles of Nick series.

Those are the only ones I can think of right now.
