I am an Anglo-Welsh author who loves all things weird and creepy. I currently live in Northern Italy with my husband and a very excitable beagle. I also work as an English teacher, but I’m not very good at it. (To paraphrase a popular advertising slogan: please DON’T remember me for your English-teaching needs.)
I grew up in an unbelievably boring part of the world. This proved to have its advantages when, in desperation, I took refuge in books. The progression from reading to writing seemed a perfectly natural one, and the result was a deluge of cringeworthy juvenilia, which has thankfully all been destroyed.
My first novel 'The Quickening', a psychological ghost story set in Victorian England, is availa ... read more

After years and years of reading Rachael found a book that was everything she was had ever been looking for. On the spine it had two simple words that changed her life forever ‘Contemporary Romance’. Since that first introduction to the world of Romance she has never looked back, reading hundreds of stories that have delighted her as much as that first book.
Rachael started penning her own romance stories when she discovered there were barely any out there with female athletes. Rachael is a keen sportsman, roping her husband into running their first marathon on their honeymoon. So far she has written two romance novels about female athletes and is looking forward to writing stories about her other pass ... read more

Gru Bo believes that Photography ain't just about clicking shutters. There's more to it. It's a process, a journey and years of understanding. He thoroughly enjoys the voyage of capturing moments and is equally thrilled to jot about it. He graduated in Photography from the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale, USA and has been framing stocks, stories and moments ever since. Before he started out on his walk through the lenses, he stacked experiences as a second shooter, assistant, grip, food runner and what not.
He lives in Nepal these days and travels frequently to explore culture, arts and human understanding through photography. You can find him babbling through his blog (www.neptour.blogspot.com) as well.

She lives in San Francisco. Voted by her friends as the woman they'd most want to stroll with down a dark alley, Kate's as likely to be spotted at the opera as she is doing tai chi in Golden Gate Park. Usually wearing black—in both cases.

Since I can remember I’ve wanted to be a writer which might explain why I spent most of my life working as a journalist. I didn’t have the guts or the know how to pursue my dream. Then life got in the way.
But before that I produced my first newspaper when I was nine (total readership: 12). I put together a project at school on the Cultural Revolution in China in 1968. I was 12. The Chinese embassy in London sent me a crate load of Mao Tse Tung’s ‘Little Red Book’ which aroused some ‘official’ curiosity!
My interest in creative writing was first roused by an English teacher in St Flannan’s College, Ennis. It was subsequently doused by another English teacher in St Paul’s College in Dublin.

Sitting around the kitchen table with her brothers and sisters, either drawing or painting the object that her father placed in the middle of the table, or writing stories together.
