In 2002 I had a book published called 'Vodka with Chocolate Chasers'. It was pretty well reviewed considering I was an unknown writer and the publisher was very small. The Daily Express was particularly impressed, saying it 'defied pigeon-holing', a phrase that chimes coincidentally with the cover of my second novel, 'The Flathunter'. My third novel, entitled 'I Am Suicide Man', will be released in the summer of 2013.
When my first book was published I was asked to go on Good Food Live to be interviewed by the divine Jeni Barnett. Unfortunately, no property shows invited me to appear on screen to talk about 'The Flathunter'. True, 'The Flathunter' doesn't have much to do with Grand Designs or Property Ladders, ... read more

I am a full time student, studying toward a BFA in Creative Writing and a BS in Biology. I am from Texas. I love reading, writing, and walking my dogs. I also have one crazy cat named Jazz. I fully believe in sexual expression, which I do, in part, through my writing. Most of my work (the non-erotic kind) has been a series of essays and short stories, fiction and non-fiction, written for personal pleasure and school. A lot of my work comes from the things I love, and my own personal fantasies, as do most people's I suppose ;-).

Faye Carlisle is a psychology teacher with over 10 years’ experience. She has worked at four different schools in the UK, both in the independent and state sector. She is also a mother with practical experience of parenting.
When she became a mother, she felt that many parenting books offered conflicting advice. At one extreme there are attachment parenting books, which suggest that parents should carry their baby around at all times and co-sleep. At the other extreme, there are books telling parents to get their baby into a routine straight away.
Her psychology background led her to look at the academic research on parenting and to write a book based on evidence rather than opinion. She aims to empower p ... read more

I wear hiking boots instead of heels when I need to feel powerful, and on a bad day, I love a weightlifting workout. Actually, I love it on a good day.
I don’t eat bread because my body doesn’t like it, although there are days I miss it. Especially ciabatta. Sweet potatoes are kind of my thing. Cookies too.

About Elizabeth Alexander
I love to read and write which in my opinion is a must for any author. I read all types of books but find that I really enjoy writing about my fantasies. As I write them, the stories sometimes run away from what I have planned as each character’s personality grows. It’s been a fun and amazing experience.
I also love to watch anime, listen to songs really really loudly, wrestle with my boys and daydream. When I was little I loved to tell stories. Growing up hasn’t changed my love for telling stories just the type of stories I now tell.
I hope you enjoy reading my work as much as I enjoy writing it. If you did, please leave me some feedback at the site where you found i ... read more

Josh Raymer’s love of writing was born early in his life. His father, Greg, shared a story during his son’s wedding about how Josh would write stories on construction paper, draw pictures to accompany the story, and then staple the pages together to create a storybook. This was at age 4. That story succinctly sums up Josh’s love of writing. It’s as innate as the need to breathe. Telling stories that people can celebrate and share is the motivation behind every page that Josh writes. He is excited to share his debut novel, The Devil’s Halo, which is now available in print and as an eBook.

I've always loved the written word. I enjoy writing almost as much as reading. My tastes run from science fiction and fantasy, steampunk and westerns, to historical and romance. The only genres I don't read, ever, is horror, (Life is scary enough, why add to that?) And Erotica. My all time favorite stories are fairy tales!

My first novel, Dishrags to Dirtbags, is hitting the shelves and I couldn't be more excited! I'm a wife, mother and deputy sheriff by day, fiction writer by night (and on the weekends, holidays and every other spare moment).
All my life, I've wished that there was something special I could offer the world, something marketable, but nothing about me was unique. Then I went to the police academy and got a job working in a jail, and I found people were fascinated by stories of even my most mundane experiences. This gave me an idea. My novel is my offering, truly a book nobody else could write, based on my knowledge of the police world and desire to empower others to take a chance. I hope you enjoy it.
