Sara Alva is a former small-town girl currently living in big-city L.A. with a husband, two cats, and an avocado tree. She recently discovered— after a year in her house— that she also has a fig tree in her backyard, which might mean she needs to get out more. But sometimes the stories waiting to be told demand more attention, and when she puts fingers to keyboard, it’s usually to write about journeys of self-discovery, heartache, personal growth, friendship and love. When she isn’t writing, she’s teaching or dancing.

I am an aspiring writer living in coastal North Carolina. I have written stories in many different genres, most of which favor surrealism and dramatic fantasy. I especially love stories depicting animals in such a way that it represents human culture (e.g. Aesop’s Fables). I have joined Smashwords in an effort to make some of my lesser known works available to the reading public. Also, you can read my blog at http://tkwadeauthor.blogspot.com/

S. M. White
S.M. White survives on a steady diet of Fantasy novels, sweet tea, and procrastination. He has no liking for cold weather or small arrogant animals.
In regards to his writings, he is quoted as saying, "I think I'm a swell writer, although I do tend towards the exceptional." Later, he rescinded the latter half of the quote in an effort to seem humble. But the damage was done.
Asked to describe himself in one word, Mr. White responded with, “Why?” After a moment of thinking, he said, “Damn, I should have said ‘inquisitive.’”
Once given a firm shake, Mr. White eventually ceases with the japery and hands over his thoughts on writing fantasy.

Brian J. Anderson grew up in Middleton, Wisconsin—spoiled rotten by a childhood filled with outdoor exploits and Midwestern warmth. Armed with a Biology degree from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, he has spent the last twenty-odd years in life science research, including stints in Agronomy, Microbiology and Biotechnology.
Brian had dreamed of writing a novel since the age of sixteen, and after innumerable false starts and dead ends—not to mention decades of simmering experience, patience and maturity—found a story that wouldn’t let him go. The Ascent of PJ Marshall is the culmination of this lifelong quest and the first chapter in his second act.

My primary career has been the entertainment business: - live theatre, live TV drama, TV series, shorts, commercials, and film. My first 'A' Movie was as a trainee assistant director on the Pinewood set of 'Cleopatra' in 1960-61. In the 70's I aided the British Government as a film consultant, conducting feasibility studies to reduce accidents at home, in the work place and in transit. The ensuing films were extremely successful and were exported to most industrial countries. In all I have obtained hundreds of production credits, of which two-thirds were as writer/producer/director.
