Barbara Smith has called four countries home and has travelled extensively in Europe, New Zealand, Australia, Southern Africa, the USA, Canada and the Asia-Pacific region. The term "itchy feet" might have been coined to describe her. Fortunately her husband suffers from the same condition and is a congenial travelling companion, so they're still talking. And still travelling.

I am an aspiring author of paranormal romance books. I have always been drawn to novels about vampires, my favorites including Anne Rice's "Interview with a Vampire" and Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress Series. As my reading tastes changed, so did my love for the rest of the supernatural world, falling in love with paranormal romance all the more. When I'm not writing or brainstorming for my novels, I enjoy reading too much, spoiling my cat and watching TV dramas like Revenge and Castle. I love to travel and have a tremendous addiction to coffee.

S.J. Faerlind is a fan of all fantasy genre creations: especially books, film and artwork. Writing fiction is a way for her to give life to her imagination and express her creativity. She also draws, sews and dances. These pursuits are also an convenient excuse for her to forget to fold the laundry.
S.J also lives a more ordinary life outside of her imagination: she lives in a small town with her family, works in her other career, and grows flowers (and weeds!) in her gardens. By the way, don't worry about her spelling: she's Canadian. You can learn more about S.J. and her writing at: www.fantasyfictiononline.com .

My whole life, I’ve loved hearing and reading stories, and creating worlds of my own. As a child, I spent countless hours drawing crazy contraptions on paper, or building vast fortresses in a sand pile behind my garage. There was hardly a time I wasn’t off on some adventure in my mind, to the dismay of parents and teachers alike. So it’s no big surprise I took all that daydreaming, all that longing to really see the wonder of creation around me, and started pouring it into discovering hidden universes in my own mind.
For quite a few years I tried my hand at writing, mostly working on one, massive fantasy novel, but it wasn’t until I had kids and they became voracious readers that I found my passion. Th ... read more

Writing has always been an obsession of mine since times I can’t remember. I started off writing songs, then poetry, later I began forming stories as my imagination grew into a monster, but like everything else in my life, I had little education, and all that I have learned, I learned on my own. I taught myself to write ‘proper’ and studied Children’s Literature under the watchful eye of Shirley Raye Redmond who taught me a lot about story structure. But writing for children was not for me. I love horror. I love my children also, but I wanted to create something sinister, like my personality...(lol.)

Born and raised in the midwest, I spent some time in Florida before eventually moving to northern Idaho in 2007. I've worked in a variety of jobs but always had voices in my head aching to get out. I started writing more and more as the years passed. Overtime, I've started to learn how to line the voices up and get them to play along well enough for them to be shared with others. I try to pretend I have some control, but the stories often have a mind of their own.
The stories that spring free often have a paranormal or supernatural twist and often involves characters that fall somewhere in the rainbow and almost always includes a slight heat warning as I don't usually hold back in language or content.
