His own father grew up in Coffeyville, Kansas, where the Dalton gang failed famously in their attempt to rob two banks at the same time.

I'm a Biker-nerd (The v-twin powered kind...not a fan of peddling) that happens to enjoy Science Fiction and Fantasy.
I have edited and contributed to Motorcycle Magazines, Blogs and short story sites about the Biker lifestyle. I have covered events, interviewed famous custom bike-builders and artists, as well as written hundreds of articles.
Since I have a smart-ass attitude and am creative, I was encouraged by "fans" to write novels as well. So I did, just not the ones they thought I would. My favorite books and authors are people like Jim Butcher and Frank Herbert, Modessit and Feist, Asimov and Gibson, Weber and Jordan (RIP). So I went with my second great love for subject matter instead of my first.

Louise Etheridge is an award-winning storyteller and would love to write serious, high-brow fiction. Unfortunately she is neither serious nor high-brow and therefore cursed with writing weird and witty short stories instead.
Louise is inspired by silliness, absurdity and things that make her laugh. Her favourite things to do include singing, dancing, hanging by her heels from the monkey bars in the park (despite the risk of subdural haematoma due to her advanced age) and writing bad pseudointellectual poetry.
Her middle name is Marguerite which is quite classy.

Like Butch Cassidy, I am a Utah native who eventually escaped to Bolivia--though I was there more briefly than he. And, I didn't commit any crimes (at least no major ones) while there. And, like Butch, I was a good Mormon boy who went bad. My guidebook, Butch & Sundance Sightseeing in Utah & Neighboring States, presents the results of more than 12 years of on-and-off research and writing. A companion volume, with Butch & Sundance sites in Bolivia (and neighboring South American Countries) is now in the works.

Grant Edward Costello was born in Western Australia (1980), before moving to Queensland where he began his education in Bundaberg. Avidly fascinated with all things otherworldly and make-believe, film and literature was a mainstay throughout his earlier years, and art quickly became the output for a growing wealth of inspiration and blossoming ideas. In the closing months of Grant's schooling, he put the paintbrush down in favour of literature, for within the written word he found a limitless playground, one where he could expand from static imagery to a broader medium of expression.
Grant's first story took the form of 'Aconite', a screenplay script that was faithfully recreated into a comic book format, and ... read more
