I was born on an island in southern Louisiana and raised there. I had a fairly uneventful life up until this point, and the writing of a book is the most eventful thing I've done for the most part. I've got many hobbies such as knitting, crochetting, origami, and I want to try my hand at blacksmithing when I get the chance. I have an interest in older weaponry for some reason. Axes, swords, knives, daggers, everything of that sort. I guess that kind of shows through in my writing, since Will's arsenal is much bigger than Darrel's in my book "The Adventures of the Beard." That or I think of condensing when I think of the future. How many things can our phones do at this point? They can do anything a comp ... read more

My name is Penelope M. Fernandez. I am a native of Darjeeling, a little town in the foothills of the Himalayas. Hypnagogic Shifters: Superposition is my first novel and the second novel, a continuation of the first, is on its way.
Nothing in the material sphere is sanctioned exclusion from the bonds of interconnection, not even art. Thus the conjecture that art as much one would like to believe is crafted for the sake of itself is not quite true. Instead the purpose of art is the psychological metamorphosis of the observer. And what is literature but a form of art which strings words into coherent sentences holding the potential to transform lives. It is undeniable that the hull of literature is entertainment ... read more

I love horror, gruesome, creepy real horror that clenches your stomach and makes you look beneath the bed and inside the cupboard before you switch off the light at nights. I grew up on James Herbert and books such as The Rats started an obsession with stories that has continued throughout my life. Now I love authors like Matt Shaw, Jeff Menapace and other new writers that are pushing boundaries and giving us the scares that keep the imagination ticking over.

Quaint Magazine is strongly committed to publishing work from traditionally marginalized writers, and in exploring identity performance, particularly as it pertains to subverting the cultural cliche of femininity. Our aesthetic can best be described as politically aware subversive horror candy-coated and wrapped up in a ribbon. We like the visceral and the disturbing, particularly when its married to the cute and innocent. We love Arielle Greenberg & Lara Glenum’s concept of the Gurlesque . Some of the staff’s favorite writers are, in no particular order, Angela Carter, Shirley Jackson, Kathy Acker, Margaret Atwood, Kate Durbin, Lara Glenum, Joyelle McSweeney, Roxane Gay and Dorothea Lasky.

John Davison was born and bred in Wiltshire, England. School walking trips to Norway and Iceland (funded by a part-time job in a shop) started an enduring interest in travel, and John took a degree in geography at the University of London. It’s an interest which has stayed with him ever since.
John spent 30 years with the Metropolitan Police in London and was awarded a Queen’s Commendation for Bravery for arresting a man who stabbed him and three of his colleagues. The experience led him to research better ways of working and the result, now known as "officer safety training", is familiar to British police officers.

I'm a freelance writer of ebooks and blog articles dealing with travel, history, healthy living and art.

My theory is the more you know about a place besides its location, the more you see.
This is the same philosophy I bring to all the subjects I write about. My goal is to give readers a unique twist on each topic I address in hopes of offering a new way of looking at things that both challenges, and expands the perspective you arrived with.
