Rachel Hawkins exposed as @YAWhispers bully

Both the @YaWhispers and @LadyHawkins accounts blocked us on Twitter after we contacted them. Ms. Hawkins own literary agent, Holly Root, also had not responded to our email before time of publication.

Hucksters can exclusively reveal that young adult fiction writer Rachel Hawkins is the person behind the infamous @YaWhispers account on Twitter who has been targeting various people in the literary industry, causing at least one self-professed Christian woman to be fired.

Hawkins, who quit her job as a teacher in Alabama to publish the popular series of fiction books known as Hex Hall, has spent the last several months using the account to badmouth dozens of literary agents that she apparently believes to be of poor quality; she has also used her (growing) audience to attack at least one one lesser-known agent, Colleen Oefelein, for simply having registered an account on the Parler and Gab social networks, despite her profiles there being completely devoid of content. Ms. Oefelein had briefly mentioned on Twitter weeks earlier that she was becoming frustrated with censorship on Twitter, however she appears to have continued using the platform to this day.

None of this seemed to matter to Hawkins, who publicly demonized Oefelein and her employer, Jennifer De Chiara Literary Agency a.k.a. JDLit; she later went so far as to accuse Oefelein of being a “white supremacist” and “neo-Nazi”.

Here are some of the thinly veiled similarities between her accounts:
