Ty Landers is a writer of fiction who lives in Nashville, TN with his wife Emily, and a Golden Retriever named Wyatt.
He grew up in rural Alabama, like the really rural part where it’s still 1955 and a heard of deer can still be seen cresting a hill and catching fuzzy morning light- making you feel like, “wow, this America is some wholesome place!” Then again, standing in that same spot, you might also be able to see a meth head stealing some grandmother’s medication or something, and you might catch him in a different kind of light, like a toilet light, which totally ruins that initial vibe that you had going on. His hometown had a shoe store called Shoes, which really says everything you need to know ... read more

At 16, as the youngest employee, she was promoted to assistant manager at a retail store. At 20, she managed cadres of parent and student volunteers at two nonprofits. At 22, she had a steady stream of interns under her purview. And at 26, a PR firm put her on its senior team, responsible for managing multiple account teams and clients. In every role, she managed people the same age or older, often with more experience and credentials.

I'm a sucker for a good love story, especially if it's a romantic comedy or if it has a few supernatural twists. My favorite types of books often include vampires, angels, and other supernatural creatures (Think Lauren Kate and Stephanie Meyer), but I'm also a huge fan of chick-lit (Think Sophie Kinsella and Helen Fielding).
Currently, I live in Simpsonville, SC with my husband and twin boys (Thing 1 and Thing 2). I consider myself a Midwest girl stuck in the South, but I enjoy the warm sunny weather and the overabundance of sweet tea.

The urge to write first struck me when working on a newsletter at a youth encampment in the woods of northern Maine. It may have been the night when lightning flashed at sunset followed by northern lights rippling after dark. Or maybe it was the newsletter’s editor, a girl with eyes the color of the ocean. But I was inspired to write about the blurry line between reality and the fantastic.
Using two fingers and lots of white-out, I religiously typed five pages a day throughout college and well into my twenties. Then life intervened.

When I was a teenager I was fairly skilled at drawing. I produced some good pencil images which sadly have now been lost. There was a drawing of an engine from a Rolls Royce Camargue. It was large, and the shading of it used up three pencils. I remember the hours I spent on its production during the summer holidays, and the music I listened to as I worked. I was destined to go to Art College, but family circumstances meant that I never got there. Instead, I finished up getting a job.
My working career started in Architecture, where with ink stained fingers and an adjustable setsquare I turned the architect’s concepts into technical drawings. Eventually the drawing boards were abandoned in favour of computers ... read more

I have an unusual way of looking at the world. My wife, Sharon, says I'm weird and truthfully—I am weird. But there's a reason. Starting from nothing, by the time I was 26 I had a net worth of a little over a million dollars. I was making $250,000 a year—that's more than $20,000 a month net taxable income. I was really having fun. But 98% truth is a lie, and that 2% can cause big problems, especially with $4 million in real estate. I had a lot of debt—a lot of short-term debt—and I'm the idiot who signed up for the trip.
The short version of the story is that debt caused us, over the course of two and a half years of fighting it, to lose everything. We didn't tell anyone what was going on, but if we ha ... read more
