Hailing from suburban Chicago, David Pauly attended the same high school where they filmed the 80’s classics, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, 16 Candles, and the Breakfast Club. College at UW-Madison was awesome, and after law school, David relocated to sunny New Mexico. Practicing in the Land of Enchantment, David loved the Turquoise skies and spicy food, but was always drawn back to his childhood refuge of Fantasy Fiction.
Voraciously reading Fantasy and Sci/Fi books like Lord of the Rings, Chronicles of Narnia, and Dune, David always wondered what would have happened after these stories ended. So, one snowy night he let his imagination run free and began typing a few sentences of what would eventually become an epic fantasy novel. Ten years later after countless re-writes and edits, begging family and friends to re-read it all, David published his first novel, The Fourth Age Shadow Wars.
Currently busy with his law practice, and precocious 5 year old, David writes the sequel to Shadow Wars, Dark Shaman when he has time. Dreaming of having more time to write and cook, David soon hopes to put away his legal shingle for good, never having to answer the most frequent question asked by his clients “Am I going to Jail again?” with the response, “Yes, yes you are.”
Monique Singleton writes compelling stories that mix fantasy with realistic psychological suspense and unique insights into the mind of the main characters.
As the daughter of a British soldier and his Dutch wife, Monique was born in an English military hospital in Germany. The family toured the world where she was exposed to different cultures in many countries. Finally settling down in the Netherlands she pursued a career in Art and later in ICT.
About six years ago Monique started to put the scenes she had running around in her head, down to paper.
Scenes led to a story, the story to a book, and the first book to a series.
In addition to her writing, Monique still holds down a full-time job as a business consultant. She lives in a beautiful old farmhouse in the south of Holland with her two sloppy monster dogs, some horses, and a cat.
The cat is the boss.

War is a Cull. Usually humans are capable of starting wars themselves, sometimes they need a hand. I start wars, and it’s time for a big one.
Priest by day, writer at odd times of the day and night, I live with a small green parrot called Tilly because the upkeep for a dragon is beyond my current budget. Plus I'm responsible for making good any flame damage to church property. I love 'Doctor Who', landscape photography, single malt whisky, and my job, in no particular order. When I'm not looking after a small parish church in the Midlands (England) I like to go on far flung adventures to places like Peru, New Zealand, and North Korea.

Reading has always been one of my favorite hobbies, even as a little girl. When I was a toddler, my parents would read stories to me over and over. I would hear them so often that I had the books memorized and could recite the story word by word.
The past year, I started having stories stuck in my head and finally decided to start writing. My favorite genres are fantasy, paranormal, and contemporary romance. So of course that's what I'm inclined to write.
I have a husband, two young daughters, and a mini Australian Shepherd. I've lived in Tennessee the majority of my life and love the state.
I'm extremely addicted to caffeine and enjoy drinking coffee and lattes.
I am so pleased that you stopped by my page! Please feel free to contact me!
Mike has recently released the third book in his most recent YA/Teen fantasy series - The Alaris Chronicles, following his 2016 trilogy of The Cremelino Prophecy.
Mike was born in California and has lived in multiple states from the west coast to the east coast. He cannot remember a time when he wasn't reading a book. At school, home, on vacation, at work at lunch time, and yes even a few pages in the car (at times when he just couldn't put that great book down). Though he has read all sorts of genres he has always been drawn to fantasy. It is his way of escaping to a simpler time filled with magic, wonders and heroics of young men and women.
Other than reading, Mike has always enjoyed the outdoors. From the beaches in Southern California to the warm waters of North Carolina. From the waterfalls in the Northwest to the Rocky Mountains in Utah. Mike has appreciated the beauty that God provides for us. He also enjoys hiking, discovering nature, playing a little basketball or volleyball, and most recently disc golf. He has a lovely wife who has always supported him, and three beautiful children who have been the center of his life.
Mike began writing stories in elementary school and moved on to larger novels in his early adult years. He has worked in corporate finance for most of his career. That, along with spending time with his wonderful family and obligations at church has made it difficult to find the time to truly dedicate to writing. In the last few years as his children have become older he has returned to doing what he truly enjoys - writing!
J.J. DiBenedetto is author of the Dream Series and the Jane Barnaby Adventures and lives in Arlington, Virginia with the love of his life and a white cat who rules the roost.
His passions are photography, travel, the opera, the New York Giants, and of course writing.
Mr. DiBenedetto is devoted to writing books with a sense of mysticism to entertain and perhaps invite his readers to suspend belief in a way they might never have.
Since he was very young , he has always been intrigued with the supernatural and things that can't be explained rationally.
By always asking way too many questions, it piqued his interest to the point of setting his writing off and running when he grew up! All the curiosity building up all those years were finally getting put into words to captivate readers. And it hasn't ended. His main goal is to share all the stories he has inside, putting pen to paper. And that's how the Dream Series was born.
All the books are available as audiobooks, including a short story narrated by Doctor Who star Nicola Bryant!
Mr. DiBenedetto welcomes queries and feedback from his loyal readers.

Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon, is an author, artist and accountant. After she failed to become an airline pilot, she quit her ceaseless pursuit of careers that begin with 'A', and decided to concentrate on her writing. Since she has Project Completion Disorder, she is one of the few authors with NO unfinished novels.
Christy has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she's a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were.
She wants to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. She uses characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth.
Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad.

Like most folks I was born, but from then on things got strange. Raised on Vienna sausage, potted meat and fried bologna. At a young age I got exposed to high levels of southern-fried weirdness that forced me into using comics, fantasy & science-fiction novels and video games to self-medicate against the symptoms of reality.
I started writing while still developing as a fetus - I owe all that amniotic fluid swirling around my little naked body as being the greatest influence to my creative process.
Today I reside in the dungeon of a cardboard castle - with my wife and three step-sons - where I paste newspaper clippings to the wall with spit in order to create storyboards for novels of fantasy, horror, science-fiction, and sometimes homo-robotic fictional memoirs.
As an added extra bonus for the fans: The thing I fear the most are those paintings of the giant squid (Kraken) wrapping its tentacles around an entire ship. Thats' a freaky image, man.
Lita Stone writes unapologetic romances with tactful realism. Her books deal with dark but realistic hardships, flawed but authentic characters, and most importantly, her books tell stories of love--a love that is faltering but pure.
'Sweet romances' are not in Lita's spectrum. She lives with her characters in the real world, ie.....Smalltown, USA, where the beer is cold, the whiskey is Tennessean and the sex is hot.

"I've read Books One and Two back to back and I can't stop now! Great series. Nothing else like it."
"The character development from the first book is thought provoking with the characters questioning their moral values. The plot has continued to grow and develop. I can not wait for the next book. A must read!"
"I loved it! I know, it gets a little rough and rowdy sometimes, but that just adds to the overall feeling of the story. I'm a grandmother and I'm looking forward to reading the next book to find out what happens!"
That is what this is, adult and dark and disturbing. I was disturbed in ways I haven't been since opening my very first Stephen King back in high school. If that is what you are looking for, please pick this up. Good writing is getting hard to find."

I wrote my first novel in college at the University of Wyoming, played lead guitar in Pinky’s bar as a member of “Suzy Q and the Quad City Ramblers,” Got an English degree, then an engineering degree, worked a lot, got married to Traci (probably the best thing to ever happen), wrote several books with Raymond Dean White, retired recently from said engineering and started writing again.
Now I write cheerfully demented novels about con artists and overweight PIs, play guitar a lot (on a very well used and loved 1954 Martin D-18 (for those of you who have guitar lust—centerfold picture available on request) and generally am having the best retirement ever.

Nobody really cares that Sam Cheever is a USA Today Bestselling Author. Nobody cares that she's written a whole ton of fun and snappy books. Let's face it, the most interesting thing about Sam is the fact that she's a dogaholic. Yeah, there's no Dogaholic's Anonymous chapter that can help her. Believe me, she's looked. So Sam deals with her problem the best way she knows how. She digs into the mountains of personal experiences (mostly involving dog poo) to write GREAT dog characters.
Oh, and there are some people in her books too. She's also pretty good at those.
Want to ask Sam about her dogs...erm...books? You can connect with her at one of the following places. Just don't ask her why she has 16 dogs. Nobody in the whole wide world can answer that.

Intuition and mediumship was a natural part of my childhood and upbringing. My family assumes that interacting with spirit and trusting the intuitive information that comes to us is normal. We all are part of the of the non-physical world and the physical world at the same time. Awareness of both is true balance in life.
