Kristen Ashley grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.
Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).
Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.
And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.

I got fired from my last job.
I know you're sitting there thinking, "Jenn, how could anyone in their right mind fire someone as amazing and awesome as you are???" And i'd love to give you a good reason, but the truth is... being This! Awesome! is clearly very scary to other less awesome people. :)
So I said screw them and started writing my first book. And you know what I realized? Writing books that mean something to me is a million times better than working for my ass off for someone who doesn't really care about anything other than the bottom line.

I was raised a global nomad, moving from continent to continent and from culture to culture.

Though I live in London, UK, I like to take my characters to where I’ve journeyed. I was raised a third-culture kid, with an American education. Yes, go figure. As a diplomat’s daughter, this introduced me to cultures and lands I ... read more

Four Moons Press is the label Eric and Matt use to describe the books they write together about their fantasy world. The setting, characters, and even the period in history may be completely different from one book to another, so naming the whole series after one country or major character doesn’t really work. No matter the story, though, the planet it takes place on has four small moons set in improbable orbits. Four Moons Press publishes the stories of that world.
Besides, Zawadzki and Schick are much harder to spell.
Eric spent his Midwestern childhood reading fantasy, so it probably isn’t surprising that he came to idealize stories of going to a far-off land. When no wizard showed up to ... read more
