Isabel Jordan writes because it's the only profession that allows her to express her natural sarcasm and not be fired. She is a paranormal and contemporary romance author. Isabel lives in Indiana with her husband, eight-year-old son, a senile Beagle, a neurotic Shepard mix, and a ginormous Great Dane mix.
Now that the normal stuff is out of the way, here's some weird-but-true facts that would never come up in polite conversation. Isabel Jordan:
1. Is terrified of butterflies (don't judge...it's a real phobia called lepidopterophobia)
2. Is a lover of all things ironic (hence the butterfly on the cover of Semi-Charmed)
3. Is obsessed with Supernatural, Game of Thrones, and Dog Whispere ... read more

Born and bred in the wilds of West Yorkshire, England; I studied History at Oxford University and Theology at the University of Leeds in the late eighties and early nineties. I've been writing stories ever since I could pick up a pen and am passionately interested in documenting the experience of gay people in a manner that goes beyond the all too often very metropolitan, youth based, niche culture that is often the face that the gay community presents to the world. I enjoy exploring the ordinary, everyday lives of gay people in a society that still is equivocal about fully accepting them. I confess that I’m not too interested in lives lived within a ‘bubble’ of those who are all the same.

I am a hopeless hedonist living in San Diego, California. Erotica is something I’ve always enjoyed, and I love being able to creatively explore real human emotions, which allows me to connect with and relate to my readers.
But above all, I like being able to provide a way for people to escape the mundane details of everyday life. Even as a writer, there’s nothing like opening up a book and exploring new worlds and “meeting” new characters. Isn’t that what reading is all about? :)

Danielle Hanna learned how to read and write at age four and knew she wanted to be an author by the time she was seven. She writes crime fiction, not specifically for the excitement of guts and guns, but as a means to explore the true experiences of real people who have survived traumatic events and are looking for answers. She also pens how-to books for her fellow authors.
Her own trauma was the death of her father when she was only two. She spent the next two and a half decades looking for someone to call “Daddy”—a mission that wasn’t successfully accomplished until she turned twenty-six. She’s now researching the father/daughter relationship and writing about it in her novels.

After a life of (too much) adventure I've finally decided to 'settle down' back in my hometown of Liverpool and fulfill my lifelong dream of becoming a writer.
Most writing courses encourage aspiring writers to 'write what they know', which in my case is easy because I know a lot about children - having worked with them for a good few years.
I write for all ages and levels and hope that adults can enjoy my stories too.
Thanks for reading. For further info about me and my stories, please check out my blog. Cheers,

Hi I'm Emma Jakobsen. I've been writing stories since second grade. My first piece of work published was "File X" which is 0.99 cents. I wrote the book at twelve years old, so I can't say I think the writing is great (haha) but I've matured a lot since then. I enjoy surfing, writing, and watching a LOT of Netflix. Taking long walks and bringing my Nikon camera is possibly the best antidote for sadness.

"Big data" may be the biggest buzzword of our time. Many talk about how big data could revolutionise industries, make profit margins soar, and lead to some of the greatest scientific advancements of our time. But when it comes to the details of how to implement a big data strategy, or why data science has become such an innovative field, it's not so clear.
The founders of Dataconomy viewed the root cause of the disconnect between the hype and the innovation as a rift between the business and data science communities. It is undisputed that data scientists have produce staggering innovations and will continue to do so, but there is a fundamental gap between these data scientists and the business world they so of ... read more

Hi and welcome to my page!
I am a writer of mainly horror fiction, but I sometimes veer slightly outside this genre from time-to-time, depending on the work. My books are mainly novellas, which are about 120-200 pages in paperback length, as I prefer to get right to the point in terms of more action and less waffle. The idea being to take the reader into the realms of my imagination and hopefully create a fun ride, but for a limited time, rather than just fill pages with meaningless words for the sake of a publisher's requirements etc..
I have written seven books so far, all of which are available on amazon, and will be soon here as well. Thank you for supporting independent authors, as you're much more likely ... read more

Lon McQuillin has been writing since he was knee-high to a grasshopper. Since he's currently 6'5', that's been a while.
He's written dozens of magazine articles and two non-fiction books, one of which was a best-seller (the other, concerning computers, was out of date before it left the presses, as predicted in the foreward.) "Sapiosaurus" is his first novel, and got excellent reviews when it was first published on the old MightyWords web site, and subsequently by a professional reviewer on eBooks. It's a gripping novel that you won't be able to put down once you start reading it.

I have been writing now for over six years. My first published story appeared in my college's literary magazine. To all aspiring authors out there I highly recommend you applying and submitting a story to your college's/high school's literary magazine. The joy from seeing your first published story is something that is unlike anything I can describe. Take that step, feel that passion, and never stop.
And if you ever have trouble writing, my advice is to sit down and write out the day's event. Anything to get words on the screen. Then you will see yourself moving towards writing that piece of art you have hidden up in your head.

Though a Colorado native, Elizabeth has lived most of her life where the wind comes sweeping down the plains, in the great state of Oklahoma. Here she lives with a ton of testosterone... her amazing husband, two incredible sons, and three dogs - two of which are also male, and thus testosterone-driven, as well. Most of her free time (i.e. after the kids are asleep) is spent replenishing what dwindling estrogen levels remain, by reading and writing sappy love stories. And she must confess, regularly indulging in healthy addictions of Facebook, über-sweet coffee drinks, and all things Maroon 5.
