When Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder forced me to leave a 25 year career in management consulting, I turned my focus to writing. My primary interest is in post traumatic stress disorder as it relates to developmental trauma and childhood sexual abuse. I have spent much of the last five years researching this topic from numerous perspectives. I hope to share my insight and experiences to help others in their recovery process.

At the time of writing, I am 33 years of age, and I live in the North of England where I grew up, with my wife, Jennifer. I enjoy most sports, and I have a keen interest in cinema, music and literature.
Stories have always fascinated me, and writing my own is a way to make sense of the world. Often they are bloody meals to satisfy the creative monster living in my head.
I hope you enjoy reading them.
So make sure the doors are locked. Turn off the lights. Switch on the lamp, and settle back in your comfiest chair.
And when you’ve finished, be sure not to stare too hard into the shadows…

We all make mistakes. My biggest mistake was my first marriage.
The best thing to come out of that brief marriage was my first full-length novel. Despite the pain and confusion through a difficult time, the planets and stars aligned, and I was able to see a story all the way to the bitter end! Okay, that first novel actually ended in a very sappy, happy way, but still. I typed those famous last word: The End.
That first novel was horrible. I promise not to tie you to a chair in my basement and force you to read it at gun point. Consider yourself blessed.
I've learned a lot since then. The quality of both my life and my writing has improved beyond a point I thought possible. I am living proof th ... read more

The planets have aligned around my writing in some cool ways. I've published a handful of kids' books, created a Discovery Network series and had a feature length screenplay produced (hopefully to see theaters). Now I'm focusing on short stories and a novel.
I live in Brooklyn - in Greenpoint - and am a big fan of NYC and of this borough in particular. Life is good. And I'm grateful.

Her creative spirit has led her to dabble in everything from cake decorating, pottery, stained glass, interior decorating and fashion design, to too many other things to mention. Most of those pursuits have gone by the wayside, but some, like cooking and photography, seem to have stuck as has her passion for travel and the outdoors. She fuels her creativity with lots of wine, trips to exotic locales and crazy bucket list adventures.

JC Cassels, a native of Tampa, Florida, traces her lifelong fascination with SF/Adventure to watching Star Trek on a tiny black and white portable television aboard the family boat as a child. The Space Opera trend that followed the release of Star Wars fed an obsessive need for swashbuckling adventure set in deep space. Today, JC feeds that need by writing her own adventures, heavily inspired by 1960's television shows like Star Trek, Mission: Impossible, and Wild Wild West and fueled by Firefly reruns.
When not writing in her haunted hospital, JC lives with her husband, three children, five dogs, twenty chickens and a horse in a century-old house in a tiny rural community, and enjoys spending her free time s ... read more

Michael Coorlim is a teller of strange stories for stranger people. He collects them, the oddballs. The mystics and fire-spinners, the sages and tricksters. He curates their tales, combines their elements and lets them rattle around inside his rock-tumbler skull until they gleam, then spills them loose onto the page for like-minded readers to enjoy. He writes fast-paced stories about real people in fantastic situations, plots with just a twist of the surreal, set in worlds just a shadow’s breadth from our own.
Some whisper that he may, in fact, be a wizard. Others maintain that he’s naught but bluster and blarney. The truly wise know that there’s nary a difference.

In spite of being a husband and father, I have always been a daydreamer. I was that guy in high school algebra with the far away expression on his face, and no I wasn’t thinking about how to apply mathematics to save the world. I was thinking about the girl of my dreams and how I would make her mine. True love and the inherent difficulty in finding it are what I daydream about the most, and to me writing a book is merely daydreaming and capturing your thoughts in print. It makes them more real and provides the opportunity for others to share in them as well. And so I hope you will.
