Jennifer L. Oliver
Jennifer L. Oliver was first bitten by the story bug when she saw Star War IV at the tender age of 5. Once she realized that her mind held the key to doorways of dimensions far beyond our own, she found sanity in escaping from the doldrums of the physical world to the magical places she created in her stories.
After many years of working at a daily newspaper, she honed her writing skills in secret. Now Jennifer brings that same opportunity of escape and entertainment to readers of her dark urban fantasy and paranormal thrillers.
She lives on Florida's Gulf Coast with her husband, two cats, and a Royal Bahamian Potcake dog that is half her size and thinks the world revolves around food and treats. When she's n ... read more

At 18 years old, Richard Hill accidentally discovered a deeply hidden family secret: he was adopted. Many years later, he was startled to learn that he had a brother out there somewhere. What then began as a search for his mother and brother evolved into a decades-long search for his biological father.
Blocked by sealed records, lies, and cover-ups, Richard eventually turned to a series of new DNA tests designed for genealogists. His groundbreaking use of this new science revealed his birth father’s last name and—more recently—helped him prove which of five deceased brothers had been his biological father.
Richard has made it his personal mission to share what he learned with other adoptees and genealog ... read more

I’m currently working on a pulp-ish sci-fi book to be released in four novella sized parts. I call it 'Space Danger!' and it’s going well so far I reckon. I hope you will eventually enjoy it.
About me? I’m human, with a nose, arms, legs and all the other regular bits and I’m male (so include those bits in the previous list if you would). I’m a fan of ale, wine, sci-fi & fantasy type stuff, food, writing in pubs, laughing and loads of other things.
I live in London with a more prolific writer, the bane of feet (cat), some of the more interesting sentient teddy bears around, door-slamming thunderous neighbours who I believe to be anger demons and, because it’s a poor old building, a bit of mould.

Born 1965 and having been engineering in computer and telecommunications industry as well as in mediawork, author has an extremely dim view of current world, which makes the research and authoring of the past much easier and, what's best, funnier. Besides, nothing beats reading of Sir Walter Scott, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, M.R.James, Roald Dahl and others, in convenient weather and chair in sunny backyard.

I think I came into writing because there was nothing better to do. Raised in a small town in the middle of nowhere, where two inches of rainfall is hailed as a miracle, I spent most of my life writing stories. In elementary school, I was writing books on lined paper and binding them with scotch tape — terrible books, mind you, but books none the less.
I can’t justify what I write or why I write it. I don’t have some deep story about how it began. However, what I do have is a passion for the stories I tell, and a need to share them with the world. That’s what it takes to be a writer, no?
While you’re here, check out my story The Xavier Mosaic. It’s a lot more interesting than I am.

U.S. born, Canadian novelist Chuck Waldron has finished his fourth novel, a dystopian story about an investigative blogger who uncovers more than he ever imagines...and has no idea what to do with his discovery. He is now hard at work on a sequel to his novel Served Cold.
His first novel, Tears in the Dust, is a mystery set against the backdrop of the Spanish Civil War in 1937. When Alec Ferguson volunteers to fight as a loyalist in the International Brigade he doesn't realize the true price he will have to pay. Chuck’s second novel, Remington and the Mysterious Fedora, is a quirky fantasy, a story about what happens when a young man sits at the keyboard of a manual typewriter and puts on an old fedora.

I write smut for a living. I write the stuff that, if done properly, will make the reader need some alone time to take care of urges.
But it's not entirely who I am. I am a wife, a mother, a homeschooling parent, and a leader in my community. I am a blogger, and a from-scratch cook. I am a friend, I am someone that people call when they are confused or have problems. I am someone that is always available to watch a friend's kids at the last minute.

AMAZING REVIEW FROM FAN READER - Cahm Merritt
I admire author Patricia Macias; her De La Cruz and Razer 8 series seamlessly meld into the new paranormal series Tequila 10. These can be read as stand alone works, but are so much better when read together...
Her style is consistent and her characters epitomize "insta-love" when the heroes and heroines find their soul mate. Ms. Macias can write seduction hotter than 100 proof tequila laid out on a six pack in a packed bar on spring break.
