Alicia Renee Kline
Alicia Renee Kline has been writing for as long as she can remember. Her work has evolved from scrawling story ideas in spiral notebooks in loopy, middle school handwriting (complete with scribbles) to more professional looking fare via her laptop. She is eternally grateful for the "delete" key, so that no one can tell that she doesn't get everything right the first time.
She resides in Northeastern Indiana with her husband, two daughters, two cats and two hamsters. When she isn't being an author, she works full time in the insurance industry.

I've been writing as a passion since I was a kid. Tried to make a career out of it during and after college, but abandoned that idea after struggling to pay bills and tuition. I kept writing as a hobby during my career in Financial Services, and now thanks to the self-publishing boom I am making my work available!
I have a wide range of favorite musicians, particularly those who are heavily influenced by the old-school rock era. My favorite of all time is Bruce Springsteen.
I hope you enjoy the book! Visit my website www.storytellerplace.com for free short stories and some other stuff. It is still being built out at the moment, but check back periodically.
I live in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.

At any given moment, I have a chapter for an upcoming book just screaming to escape my mind and make it on paper. Roughly 15 percent of the time it does. The other 85 percent is lost to caring for three children 7 and under; editing books, blogs, articles, and manuals part time; and basically accomplishing all that goes along with being a work-at-home mom. As I summon the muse to help me with the remaining 85 percent, you'll see some excellent non-fiction titles (like Milk Diaries) to help moms on their journey.

Daniel Medway (the real author of this chronicle) is the worthless scion of a proud old Mississippi family that sorely wishes he’d stop mentioning the relationship.
Declared “a waste of a placenta” by his daddy on the day of his birth — a prediction that proved eerily accurate as the years unfolded — Daniel will probably best be remembered for writing some poems that James Dickey (briefly) liked one night on a drunken tear, the Great Harpoon Incident, and the miles of microfilmed evidence the FBI once gathered on him.
Having squandered some early promise in the pursuit of Jim Beam, pretty women, and the perfect stereo system for his complete collection of the Fugs, Daniel recently unearthed a dog-ea ... read more
