I grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia exploring the worlds of Terry Brooks, Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman, and David Eddings. A fan of video games as well I always felt myself drawn more to the ones that told a great story. Whether it was flying around fighting the alien Kilrathi in Wing Commander, fighting off an alien invasion in X-Com, or becoming a great hero in the Quest for Glory series, the stories and worlds I found in those games still bring me back to play them every now and then even today.
I would love to say that my educational background was heavy in English Composition and Creative Writing. While those skills would have made the writing process much easier, I actually studied Mathematics ... read more

International Bestselling author, Ashley Fontainne, is an avid reader of mostly the classics. Ashley became a fan of the written word in her youth, starting with the Nancy Drew mystery series. Stories that immerse the reader deep into the human psyche and the monsters that lurk within us are her favorite reads.
Her muse for penning this series was The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas. The revenge on all those who hurt and betrayed Edmond Dantes and the incredible roller coaster ride his journey takes you on intrigued her. Ashley’s love for this book is what sparked her desire to write her debut novel, Accountable to None, the first book in the trilogy, Eviscerating the Snake. With a modern setting to ... read more

S. J. Crown
Early on S. J. learned that in the world of fiction an underdog can win. One of his first favorite reads was a novel called THE KID WHO BATTED 1.000, a tale about a last-to-first-place baseball team. Plenty corny, but he still thinks it’s better than the movie ANGELS IN THE OUTFIELD. The clincher for his writing career might have been when he discovered alliteration, though he couldn’t have defined or even pronounced the word. In first grade he wrote a little tale entitled, ahem, “On Porpoise on Purpose.” He doesn't remember the details, except that his young male hero, riding the back of a big fish, performed some bold deed of great import. And no, Flipper wasn’t on TV yet. From there, he gathered en ... read more

I've loved erotica and the paranormal all my life, and I'm a voracious reader. And then one day I decided to create my own world and write a series in it.
And then I got an idea for another series. And remembered a story I'd written long ago. And I created some more worlds; I couldn't stop writing!
When I'm not writing I can be found gardening, making all sorts of herbal concoctions, creating art, brushing cats, reading, and/or knitting.
