Angela Lockwood-van der Klauw was born in the Netherlands. She learned her trade as a jeweller and gemmologist at the Vakschool Schoonhoven before moving to Edinburgh as an apprentice jeweller. There she met and later married her husband Adam. Angela ran her own jeweller’s shop in Edinburgh for ten years before she and her husband moved to the south of France in 2011. Like Cameron, Angela prefers the climate there, but often thinks about the town she left behind and its people.
Cameron’s story was born in the spring of 2013, a very wet spring during which Angela found herself climbing the walls, frustrated that she couldn’t go out and have her usual long walks along the seafront. Seeing his wife’s frus ... read more

After about 20 years of a successful consulting career, I began learning about the Universal Law of Attraction and how we all have the power within us to design our ideal life. It is a process to find the limiting beliefs that fuel the fears that hold us back from success but once you identify them, you can learn the skills needed to attract everything you want in your life rather than just going through the motions of surviving life! These principles have been stifled for hundreds of years but now more and more people are accepting "non-traditional" methods of creating happiness - that are already within each of us! I decided to tap into my own power and help others find theirs. It starts with believing that t ... read more

Lucy King has been writing contemporary romance since 2009 and honestly can’t think of a better job to have. Creating swoon-worthy heroes, sassy heroines and heart-melting happy ever afters definitely beats the fund management and corporate fraud investigation she worked in before.
Originally from London, Lucy lives in south-west Spain with her family where she spends much of the time reading, failing to finish cryptic crosswords and trying to convince herself that the beach really is the best place to work.

He was raised in Chatham, New York, a small town in the Berkshires that looks like the setting for a Washington Irving story. He grew up surrounded by overgrown woodlands and tumbled-down, derelict farmhouses. He sensed the past, that most furtive but potent of powers, all around him. He now lives in Dallas with his patient, endlessly supportive wife, their witless terrier, and their unhinged cat. He is a teacher but writes fiction whenever he gets a chance. Sadly, he is capable only of crafting stories of the weirdest kind. His imagination—apparently corrupted in adolescence by Hawthorne, Bierce, Machen, Lovecraft, and assorted other misanthropes, weirdos, and purveyors of high strangeness—only seems capab ... read more

Besides a two-year stint as a missionary on the Canadian plains and a handful of month-long journeys across Germany and Europe, Utah County has been my life (something I'm very proud to claim).

I was born in Alberta, Canada, and I’ve lived here ever since. I attended the University of Alberta, choosing a ‘practical’ degree in health sciences, and married my husband, Jeff, along the way, just after my twentieth birthday.
At thirty I had three busy children and one busy husband. I decided it was time to take a break from my common sense career. Since I was chucking practicality anyways, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to write fiction. I’ve counted fictional characters among my best friends since my mother gave me Pierre Berton’s The Secret World of Og for my sixth birthday, but this was the first time I let myself invent my own characters and take them past the first few chapters.

Based in a leafy suburb of London, I took time out from my career in marketing and advertising to write my first fictional novel. The idea for the book had been with me for over a year, but the will or need to write a novel had followed me like an unfulfilled shadow since school days.
Well the shadow has not gone, it just wants to grow bigger. Hungry like a dark character from Dr Who.
The writing process was cathartic and fun. Being allowed to hole up in a public library and do what you like for two days a week should not be sniffed at. The book took around 13 weeks to write and then that again to self edit, self publish and proofread.
Now, without the aid of a publisher, came the hard part - getting the b ... read more
