I have self published my first series novel, Soul Feathers, and I am working on the second book in the series, which I hope to have ready by the summer of 2015. I have known that I wanted to be a writer since first grade, but it took one amazing author to give me the motivation I needed to finally start writing. I began this project in 2008 and have been trying to perfect it before publishing it.
I have been married for 20 years and have a 19 year-old daughter and 15 year-old son. I grew up in the suburbs of Kansas City, MO, but moved to Dallas, TX in 1990, where I have stayed since.

Sean Patrick Hannifin
Sean Patrick Hannifin has been writing for most of his life. His earliest stories were penned at the age of five, when he would draw stick-figure pictures and dictate the accompanying words to his parents. These stories usually began with the words, "Once upon a time there was a happy little boy with an umbrella." With a lack of artistic skill, these umbrellas often resembled giant lollipops. Fortunately Sean's interest in umbrellas was soon replaced with a fascination for dragons and dark wizards. Fantasy films from the 80's, such as The NeverEnding Story, The Dark Crystal, and the somewhat obscure Mio in the Land of Faraway, helped found a life-long love for dark and mysterious worlds full of wizards and cast ... read more

Reading romance novels came easily to Elisa Braden. She’s been doing it since she was twelve. Writing them? That took a little longer. After graduating with degrees in creative writing and history, Elisa spent entirely too many years in “real” jobs writing T-shirt copy ... and other people’s resumes ... and articles about giftware displays. But that was before she woke up and started dreaming about the very unreal job of being a romance novelist. Frankly, she figures better late than never.
