S.S. Lange was the kid that hid under the covers with a flashlight, reading until far past her bedtime. She’s also the kid that sometimes had a pencil and paper under those covers. She’s traded the flashlights and notebooks for a laptop and smartphone, although she still does some of her best reading and writing planning under the covers.
As a mom, wife, small business owner, manager, and freelancer, her writing is done on pure passion and caffeine. She writes suspense novels that are sometimes gritty, occasionally funny (intentional or not, you decide), and chock full of chatty characters.
When she’s not writing or thinking about writing (okay fine, she’s always thinking about it), she enjoys long w ... read more

Follow me on Twitter at DCicconeBookClb
Derek Ciccone is an avid fiction writer. Painless is the first one to be published, followed by The Trials of Max Q and The Truant Officer in 2011. Derek grew up in Connecticut and attended Arizona State University, where he graduated with a degree in Political Science. He now resides back in Connecticut and works as a Marketing Analyst for an advertising agency.
Derek’s stories are fast paced mystery/thrillers filled with suspense, humor and romance. But at their core are memorable, layered characters who take you into their world and make you not want to leave. The consistent trait of these characters is they are seemingly regular people who are placed into unthinkable situations.
When Derek’s not working ... read more

I write fiction for teens and adults and teach writing and literature at the University of Texas at San Antonio, where I live with my husband, three kids, two dogs, and two rats (Katniss and Prim, of course). I'm also an avid reader and book reviewer. I've always said I never want to give up reading for writing or vice versa. I want to do both. My favorite authors are Tracy Chevalier, Ann Patchett, Suzanne Collins, Veronica Roth, Rick Riordan, and Stephanie Meyer. I have too many to name, but those are a handful of them. When I'm not spending time with the family, working, reading, or writing, I can be found watching The Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, The Middle, and NCIS.
