I'm a lover of reading, writing, friends, and family, especially my USAF Airman husband and our baby pooch, Lucy. My biggest desire is to be someone who makes an impression on others through my writing! I want to be remembered after I'm gone as someone who had big dreams and actually went after them instead of letting them pass me by. I hope you'll find the work I've poured my heart and soul into as entertaining and memorable. Thanks for giving my writing a chance (:

I live in Swindon with my family, pet chickens Lucy, Tilly, Bella and Polly and our pet fishes, of whom there are too many to name. I am a writer of children's stories aimed at readers age range of 7 to 11 years old. Reading and writing is the thing I spend most of my time doing but I also enjoy a lot of crafts such as crochet and cross stitch. I like to make my readers feel happy, as I like to feel happy and hope this is reflected in my stories. You may also see books from me in other genres as I like to have a change and do not only write for children.

Throwaway Lines LLC is the brain child of Sj Heckscher-Marquis and Jason Horger. When we first met in 2008 we knew we shared a common dream, to bring fast fun reads to the reading public.
Away from the publishing dream, Sj writes as Marney Wolfhunter. She has been making up stories since trying to convince her teachers that the dog did, in fact, eat her homework. Her stories reflect the fact that existence is, broadly speaking, hilarious entertainment, that people cannot easily be pigeon-holed, and life is generally a muddle and has the power to surprise us.

Elaine lives in Surrey with her husband and son, but her story begins with toy animals and plasticine.
That’s right. I was born in London to, unfortunately, horse-naïve parents, and was passionate about ponies from an early age. I remember playing in my mum’s bedroom as a toddler with a farm set, pretending that the cows and sheep were ponies and fashioning saddles and bridles out of stickers and plasticine. My parents gave in and booked riding lesions for me when I was nine and in the ensuing years, I fell off a great variety of ponies. I was determined to have my own pony one day and when I left school, I started putting some of my meagre wages away every week in my “pony fund”. I discovered a st ... read more

A Hoosier born and raised, Monette still lives in the heartland near Indianapolis, Indiana
After Monette obtained her law degree, she worked in a small general practice attempting in her own way to right wrongs and fight the good fight. Little did she realize that all those clients, opposing counsel and the problems she handled would jump start the need to write fiction. But after twenty years in law, she did just that -- started writing. First, romantic suspense, then adding paranormal, then adding a sexier side (as Rae Morgan).
She still practices law - - but writing is her passion.
Monette is married to her college sweetheart and has one son and a cat. The cat is the boss.
