Started out as a musician, playing in punk bands in the late 70s/very early 80s, then traveling the world with the reggae band Boom Shaka. I retired from music when I was 30 years old and began writing a few years later. I am a better writer than musician, but I'm better at pretty much everything than I was at music. Writing is also much easier, considering there are no musicians involved. You really don't want to hang around that type if you don't have to.
My first collection of poetry and short stories, alternative man, was published in 1996 and it's available right here on Smashwords. Or if you're one of those ink-on-paper Luddites, on the mjpbooks.com site.

I work for GOD! I write many nonfictions that are really just scribing the history of HIS Stories. My tales are Christian based; at least one of those books points directly to HEAVEN. I explain how bad situations and good ones have the potential to bring hope and love along with stronger faith.
My favorite question during book interviews is: How did you get started? The short answer is that my mother died. Some people dream of being authors; my writing began as what could be described as a nightmare! HOWEVER- as she died, mom’s experiences ran the gamut from going through all the grieving steps a terminal soul follows to having what would be called a Christian Near Death Experience (NDE).

I have been in love with books since a very young age. I even remember having these books with little records on the page and a little record player thing that would be put over the page. I loved those books.
As the years went by I discovered that my passions were words and science. I have thousands of stories that I have written or had stuck in my head. The first stories that I published on Smashwords were about my Ex-Husband and only a view pages long.
I hope to be able to allow the science geek in me to come out with some of the stories that are currently percolating in my gray matter.

Charlie Hatfield Romo was born 21st October, 1980, in San Antonio, Texas, USA. The son of artists, he grew up in an environment where aesthetics and culture were cherished facets of life. His first fashion-oriented memory is, at age five, hugging his mother and being transfixed by the scent and texture of her rabbit fur coat. From then on, every aspect of his mother's beauty regime fascinated him, be it makeup or hair or the simple everyday process of what to wear.
As he got older, Romo spent countless hours crawling through his mother's University textbooks. Enthralled by Art, Anatomy, English, Literature, Anthropology and Psychology, he swirled these subjects in his growing brain to the point of obsession. A ... read more

At the moment, her works include urban fantasy, erotica, and horror (or a very interesting mix of each). During the day, she's the mom of two beautiful toddlers who routinely hijack her computer and shut it down, runs a childcare business out of her house, bakes bread from scratch, preserves fruits and vegetables her husband grows on their 5 acre property in upstate NY, and is often caught mumbling story plot lines all the while. At night, she can be found writing it all down, among other, more naughty, activities (she calls it research).

I started reading when I was something like 3 years old. My first 'grown up' book was given to me by my grandmother, and it was Piers Anthony's 'Castle Roogna'. From that moment on, I was hooked on the wondrous worlds of science fiction and fantasy.
I can't remember when, exactly, that I started writing, but I usually stick with '5 years old' because that sounds like a good time to start. I definitely remember writing all kinds of things when I was a young boy, but it wasn't until I hit grade 8 that I really buckled down and started working on the Garth N'Chalez Universe.
