John D. Ayers
About John D. Ayers: As a gentleman, I truly appreciate and love everything from the regency period of Jane Austen. Mr. and Mrs. Darcy’s world is one that many of us have journeyed into often, where we lose ourselves within their story. It was and is a veritable escape from the harsh realities of current life. My words contained within this novel are expressed to move you, as my thoughts pour forth. Should the images and my feelings induce a shiver down your spine, or cause butterflies to engage within your very being, then I will consider myself highly successful in my venture. Words are powerful and can transport us all to a better time and place. This world, for me, is full of carriages, waistc ... read more

The youngest of four children, I was born in North Kent forty-something years ago and that is where I lived, on a council housing estate, for the first twenty-five years of my life.
When I was nine or ten years old, I was fortunate enough to encounter that precious thing, a wonderful teacher, who planted the seed of possibility that writing was something I could do. I caught the writing bug. It was a love that stayed with me throughout my childhood.
Unfortunately, where I grew up, work was in short supply and getting a job, any job, was the prime concern of most school leavers who wanted to make something of their life. I gave up all ideas of writing in favour of getting a "proper job" and started work in a ... read more

Well, I hail from the frozen north of Quebec, Canada. A wondrous isolated land where I spent many a chilly evening staring up at the sky dreaming of new worlds and adventures I would love to be having instead of freezing my butt off. Even from a young age I loved to spin a good yarn to anybody who would listen, though my parents told me I just loved to talk. I would make up songs, short stories and plays to entertain myself and my cousins during long summers at the fishing camps. I followed my dream and started working in the video game industry in Vancouver and it is during this time I found the inspiration to finally put my tall tales to virtual ink and began to write my childhood dreams.

I am a foreign news video producer. At age twenty-four, I left Australia on a journey, spending much of my life reporting war and civil strife. I’ve documented every major conflict since then, from Bosnia, Chechnya and Rwanda, through to today’s Arab Spring. Interestingly, I found it wasn’t the appalling events seen in war or, unfortunately, the death of colleagues that tormented me most, but matters of the heart.
In many intimate moments I learnt things I later didn’t want to know. This is where the real stories were – pillow talk and the profound two-o’clock-in-the-morning conversations with friends. The tragic fact is my fictional story is a watered-down version of the truth, because the truth w ... read more

I have enjoyed writing since I was a child. Born in Michigan, I spent much of my childhood in San Francisco, CA and have fond memories of going fishing with my father and brothers in a sleepy, spot across the Bay called Sausalito (quite the chic locale today!). Early on, I developed a deep appreciation and love for the natural world - nurtured by my father who took daily delight in that which most people ignore or take for granted - the flora, fauna, various species of animals, birds, trees, etc. that share this planet with us. Respecting the harmony of the universe has helped to enhance my understanding of the complexity of human behavior, the value of a higher state of being and the distinctive power to ... read more

If I am brutally honest I would say my writing style is unique. I probably break every grammar rule in the book as I like my stories to flow as if alive.
When I write a novel I structure it like I am building a house. First I begin with the foundations of the characters; I try to create them as human as possible with all the common frailties and traits that we all possess. Then I start on the frame, or the outline of the story and then it is a race to build the walls, plaster the walls, put in the electrics and gas and then CRASH! The house explodes into life.
