Raised and educated in what he describes as a town of narrow streets and even narrower minds, Leon Steelgrave was afforded plenty of opportunity to hone his acerbic wit. If he never looked back, he certainly spent a lot of time looking inward, a practice that has stood him in good stead, not least in his writing career.
At twenty-one he decided to try and earn a commission for writing one of a series of Judge Dredd novels then being published by Virgin Books. The commission proved beyond his youthful reach but he did keep the rejection letters, their content being such to persuade him that he might one day become a professional writer.

I write young adult fantasy. Originally from St. Louis, Missouri, I now live in Cedar Park, Texas, with my husband John Michael. I believe in freedom of speech, thought and religion.
I've been interested in Wales ever since high school. Two years ago I got the idea for a Welsh-themed trilogy. I started looking for a lake that my characters could visit and found Llyn Caerwych, and because of its location a whole new world opened up for me – Snowdonia, a beautiful national park in North Wales. Within walking distance from the lake was Bryn Cader Faner, a 4,000-year-old ring cairn, and I ran with it! That would be the portal to send Bridget and Celena back in time to 500 BC.

She combined her love of history, romance and a happy ending to write her first novel Cera's Place. She recently released a short story titled The Gypsy Casts a Spell.

James A. West
Author page of epic fantasy writer James A. West! If you like leaner, fast-paced fantasy, you've come to the right place.
When James was thirteen years old he read The Talisman, by Stephen King and Peter Straub, and a seed of an idea was planted that someday he, too, would create different worlds and realities.
After a stint in the US Army, a year as a long-haul truck driver, and a couple as a log home builder, he enrolled at the University of Montana. There, he majored in Psychology and, by chance, took a creative writing course that allowed him to revisit that old seed of an idea of creating worlds. Words started to flow, and worlds were born.
After college, he started a small woodworking business wi ... read more

Marcin R. Szymczak
Theoretically, we should try to glorify the Author’s person here. But because he lives in far Eastern-European country called Poland, we concluded there is no sense in doing that.
No one from you will ever meet him, so there’s no point in making any marketing efforts allowing you to see his character nicer.
Instead, we will briefly describe his random attributes.
At first, he is a little bit older than Jesus when unknown perpetrators killed him. And he has, like Jesus, a beard.
Unfortunately, we cannot find any more resemblances to any famous person.

Since I was a little girl I wanted to be a storyteller. At recess time I would gather some of my schoolmates and entertain them with stories—some of my own, others just summaries of books I read. When I retired, after a career as a professor of computer science at The University of Western Ontario, I reverted to my old passion. I took several e-courses on fiction writing and began putting down my plots. So far I have written eight novels, several short stories and co-authored a novella. The genre varies from romantic suspense (Mountains of Dawn, The Collage, Cross of Sapphires, Operation Woman in Black, The Red Manor) to thriller (The Jungfrau Watch, The Blackpox Threat, The Bricklayer).
