D. Robert Landholt
Hello! My name is D. Robert Landholt and I am an author based out of the St. Louis, Missouri area.
Embers: The Foundation is my first novel, and although I have written a lot of articles for newsletters, websites, etc., the novel is a life's pursuit and a new experience. I loved every minute of the construction of the beginning of this story and I can't wait to keep going!
As I mentioned, I live in the St. Louis area in Jefferson County with my wife and daughter. Everything I do, I do with them in my mind. They are my driving force.
Like so many of you, I am a fan of self-published work and I love the direction the industry is headed. There are great authors out there that haven't been discovered yet.

M Joseph Murphy
Joseph Murphy was born and raised in Ontario, Canada. He earned his geekdom at an early age. He read X-Men comics from at the age of 8 and it only went downhill from there.
As a teenager he wrote short stories and wanted to be the next Stephen King. Instead of horror, however, he kept writing fantasy stories. After surviving high school as a goth with a purple mohawk, he studied English and Creative Writing at the University of Windsor.
When not writing, Joseph works as Lead Accounting instructor at Everest College. He also lectures to other businesses on outside-the-box marketing. He lives in Windsor, ON (right across the stream from Detroit, Michigan) with his husband, two cats, and shy-but-friendly ghost.

I was born and raised in Illinois. I migrated to the West several times and finally resolved to stay there, with the big mountains and clear rivers. I'm married to a beautiful, funny woman I don't deserve, and I'm a dad to two sons who certainly must have done something right in their previous lives to deserve such a generous, understanding, and doting father.
I’ve always been into writing, nature, and some form of carpentry. I grew up with lake houses, summer places where, as a small boy, I balanced my suburban life with a magical universe full of waves and seaweed and tadpoles and rowboats, and where all things that mattered existed.
Both my grandfathers were carpenters, and I inherited the gene, and have ... read more

Charlene Newcomb. Char. That's me.
Historical fiction and contemporary mainstream drama have me under their spell these days, but it wasn't always that way. When I was a kid, I wanted to be an astronaut. I ended up with a degree in U.S. History - math and physics were not my friends. I fulfilled my desire to walk on the moon and travel to distant planets by writing about adventures in space. And the SciFi stories I've published have spies, which I attribute to my 5-year career as a communications technician/voice language analyst in the U.S. Navy.
All of these influences carry over into my mainstream and historical fiction. My family saga, Keeping the Family Peace, centers on the lives of a Navy family in the ... read more

He explores our triumphs and our weaknesses, our fearless leaps and our hesitations, our attempts to become better people and our submissions to darker desires - and how every choice we make can change the paths of those around us. He is fascinated by the inner compass we all have, and how its needle can swing toward the ultimate truth when it is fed by hope.
Kurt Erkan believes that the best way to explore the inner world is by writing - namely via prose and poetry. The information discovered and riddles solved in these realms must be shared with other people who are on the same quest.
