Publisher info

Phantom Feather Press is the brainchild of award winning authors Alicia Ponder and Eileen Mueller, who sometimes publish with published with internationally-recognised science fiction and children's author, Peter Friend.
The first story Alicia and Eileen wrote together was the NorthWrite2013 Collaborative Competition winnning, Ahi Ka. It was the fun of writing this that led to the impetus of creating their first e-book, Twisty Christmas Tales - Festive Short Stories for Children of All Ages.

We hope you enjoy our stories as much as we enjoy writing them.

A.J. Ponder has a head full of monsters, and recklessly spills them out onto the written page. Beware dragons, dreadbeasts, taniwha, and small children — all are equally dangerous, and capable of treading on your heart — or tearing it, still beating, from your chest.

Eileen Mueller lives on the side of a hill with four dragonets and a shape-shifter. The recipient of two Sir Julius Vogel Awards, she has won various literary contests. Eileen writes for young adults and children, with occasional forays into dark fiction.

Peter has stories in Asimov's and other top international science fiction magazines, as well as many audiobooks, novels and short stories for children.
