Joleene Naylor grew up in southwest Iowa surrounded by soybeans, corn and very little entertainment – so she made her own. She has been writing and drawing since she was a small child, with a particular leaning towards fantasy, horror and paranormal. It is this love of all that goes bump in the night that led her to write the Amaranthine series.
In her spare time she is a freelance artist, book cover designer and photographer. Her current projects include the seventh novel in the Amaranthine series, a collection of Executioner short stories, and The Terrible Turtle Conspiracy, a web manga collaboration with writer Jonathan Harvey. Joleene maintains blogs full of odd ramblings and hopes to win the lottery. Until she does, she and her husband live near Bolivar Missouri with their cats and turtles. However, unless she starts buying tickets she may never actually win anything.

Verchiel is one of the best characters in this series, so it's fitting for him to have his own short story the Tales from the Island Collection. Verchiel always seems to be in someone else's business, oftentimes annoying them. He certainly manages to annoy multiple characters in this story alone. His humor and antics are invaluable to the series, and I enjoyed this story immensely.
