Atthys J Gage
Atthys Gage is a writer with a lifelong love for myth, magic, and books. His second real job was in a bookstore. As was his third, fourth, fifth and sixth. Eventually, he stopped trying to sell books and started writing them. He has always had a fascination for that cloudy borderline between the normal and the paranormal and spends a lot of his time thinking about flying carpets and sentient flecks of alien consciousness and other stuff like that. In the so-called normal world, he lives on the coast of Northern California with his long-suffering wife, strong-willed children, and several indifferent chickens.

Since then, YA has exploded into one of the largest markets in fiction with tens of thousands of new titles published every year.
In this quick essay, we explore how it a tiny niche-genre grew into a major marketplace phenomenon.
