Rachael H Dixon
Rachael H Dixon lives in the cold and windy northeast of England. She craves sunlight and warmth, and as such her skin is so white it's almost translucent. She's been writing ever since she could hold, albeit strangely, a pen. Her love for the macabre stems from reading James Herbert novels and watching Vincent Price films when she was small.
As well as writing, Rachael loves reading, walking her two whippets, drinking red wine and admiring Gil Elvgren art work. And she often wonders whether she's the only writer in the whole world who doesn't like coffee.
Her first novel, Slippery Souls, was short-listed for the Writing Magazine Self-publishing Award 2012.

Jan loves to travel. He's lived in four countries and travelled in 50. Most of the time he travelled on a budget. Since he was travelling to see the sights - not sleep in a bed - he always looked for budget accommodations. Remarkably, he could readily find places that cost a quarter of what others were paying. It just took some effort.
In Turkey he stayed in a hotel where the plumbing always leaked - but the price was rock bottom. (The plumbing always leaks in Turkey.) In Australia he slept in the "loft" of a Volkswagen Westphalia during a 3,000 km cross-country tour. In Canada and New Zealand he slept in hostels with 6 to a room. In the Philippines, he slept in a nipa hut some friends gave him. In Greece, h ... read more

A fan of science fiction, I started writing at the age of 15 with short stories and early attempts at novel writing. Humanity: Reunion first began in 2004, but due to circumstances it was put on hold until late 2011. A larger vision for the book began to surface and will eventually lead into a full series, including prequels and sequels.

Donya resides in Indianapolis, Indiana, with her husband and a small zoo of cats and dogs. In fact, her writing buddy, Lucky, might become more famous than she is, based on the feedback the ever-present feline receives on her Facebook page.
As a little girl, Donya always had a book in her hand. As she got older, the books became pens and notebooks, which she filled with stories and poetry. For as long as she remembers, she has been writing and dreaming up stories. Seems writing was her destiny.
Donya loves music and often finds inspiration for her stories in the wide range of music she listens to. Nothing like a little Korn to propel the angst in a scene, or Enya to evoke softer and more romantic storylines. ... read more

I write contemporary romance novels that stray a little bit outside of the genre. I've always had trouble coloring in the lines, so to speak. I published three full-length novels with Genesis Press: Love Out of Order (February 2010), The Davis Years (February 2011), and Holding Her Breath (July 2011). I am now venturing out into the self-publishing world, and I love it so far. My first novella, Pink Champagne, is available here at Smashwords and in most other places e-books are sold. I hope to publish two more novels by February 2013. Visit my website for updates about those.

I was born in a small town in the North of Sweden, where I also grew up. I used to walk to and from school and often see spectacular displays of Northern Lights. To me they were there, as part of normal life. It’s only now that I’ve realized how privileged I was and that many people travel to the North to see them. The darkest months of December and January, we lived in twilight from eight in the morning until two in the afternoon, when it got quite dark again, the sun never rising above the horizon. In sharp contrast the summer months of June and July never got dark at all. The Midnight Sun would shine at two in the morning, sometimes all night, a sun which never set.
