If anything defines me, its ideas. Stories. I’m fascinated with the goings on—just under the surface. Whatever it is about me, most times, I see things a differently than most. And who I am, isn’t really about what I’ve accomplished—it feels as if my life so far was just training, practice—preparation for my true purpose.
To quote John Mayer, I’d like to think the best of me is still hiding up my sleeve ;)
Writing is what best in me—I know it like destiny flowing from my fingertips. In the time its taken to put together this dream to make writing my reality, I’ve come to know spa-rk.com as part of that fate.
Maybe I’m crazy. I know I am—a little. I think we all have to be, to survive ... read more

I'm a single mother living in the southern US, where there's plenty of beautiful scenery to inspire my writings. My family consists of an amazingly intelligent 3 yr old son named Isaiah, who loves to spin long stories that usually involve the other member of our household: the Cat of Doom. Simon is a fluffy Maine Coon that is way too smart for his own good and not nearly as graceful. The two of them manage to keep me pretty busy when I'm not writing. I also love to cook, draw, and play video games.

Ia Uaro is an Australian author.
She was born in the beautiful and remote, world's widest tea plantation by Mount Kerinci in Sumatra where her dad was the plantation's accountant, her mum a teacher. Her dad died when Ia was 13, and Ia moved across the ocean.
She proceeded to become the busiest teen ever: playing in a drum band, tutoring maths, learning languages including English as the fifth language, and, at 17, a teen magazine published Ia's first fiction as a serial. Inundated by her fans' letters, the publisher printed it as a book, which was subsequently bought by the Indonesian Department of Education for high-school libraries.
Ia used the proceeds to help fund her university studies, during which ... read more
