Andrew Kirschbaum was born in Nebraska in 1967. Education, employment, and an overseas war kept the Kirschbaum family on the move for the next ten years, living in Nebraska, Iowa, Nevada, and Florida before settling in Massachusetts. A basic ineptitude at anything not related to reading and writing his native language led to a B.A. in English Literature from Brandeis University and a short-lived career as a technical writer. In 1991, he started 3 Trolls Games & Puzzles – a traditional board game and puzzle store in Chelmsford, MA – with his family and has been running it ever since. In 2011 he collaborated with a group of friends and family to produce Verdigris, an interactive novel for the iPhone and iPad; ... read more

Writing is a solitary occupation, and yet it is among the most social of endeavors. While the writer works alone, the words produced are sent out to the world in the hope of finding an audience. There is a kind of madness that all writers share, especially those who have not yet found their audience. The work proceeds, buoyed often by nothing more than determination and ideas.
A. G. Moore writes books, stories, blogs, tweets, essays. She finds the exercise of framing a thought carefully to be a medium for intellectual growth and personal understanding. Crafting a piece fastidiously often leads her from a place of unfounded assumption to one of informed clarity. Research is always part of the process, as is del ... read more

I'm a librarian and ebooks represent an industry shift as well as an opportunity to help budding writers in my community. Formatting an ebook in Word was rather painless. I hope to do it many more times in my self-published ventures and encourage others to "clear the slate" of their finished works.

My parents were from Massachusetts and much of my early memory came from there. I remember green fields and orchards and stone walls on country lanes with the changing colors of fall. But my father worked for the Public Health Service and we moved wherever the Federal Government sent us. We ended in Kansas. Because we moved around, I didn't have lifelong friends and books filled the gap. When I was a kid when I wanted to go somewhere, a book took me there. Science fiction and fantasy stories took me farther into the unknown universe than any other genre.
As I got older and transitioned to regular fiction, or military history, then general history and nonfiction technical reading, there was always an opportunity ... read more

I was a Russian spy at the ripe age of thirteen, given my uncanny ability to tell if someone was lying ( I also read fortunes on the weekends). By sixteen I had become too much of a handful for the Lethal Intelligence Ensemble (L.I.E.). I was quickly exiled to the south of France where I worked with wayward elephants in the Circus of Roaming Animals and People (C.R.A.P.). I was able to make ends meet by selling my organs on the black market for pocket change and beer money. At the age of twenty three I decided to expand my horizons and become a blackjack dealer in Ireland. I loved the family atmosphere at Barney's Underground Liquor Lounge (B.U.L.L.). People couldn't resist the allure of Liquor up front and pok ... read more

Ever since the age of eight, I wanted nothing more then to be an author. I would spend hours and hours creating stories and sharing them with my friends and family.
In my mid twenties I had two of my short stories published in three magazines. I was ecstatic, that I had finally broken into the industry.
Well, time has a way of rushing by and I took time to get married, raise a child and have lots of animals and work two jobs. A lot of years have passed, but now, at last, I will be able to concentrate on my very first love, writing.

Lucy Golden is an intensely private person: she is unwilling to publish her biographical details, considering the intimate revelations in her books to be more than adequate. She says, "My books and stories are extremely personal. They are drawn from the very deepest parts of my mind and if you don't know me after reading them, you never will." Her fiction is based both on her own experiences and those of friends; these people are not impossibly rich, nor are they cardboard cutouts. They are real people, with real families, real lives, real careers who all have a keen interest in sex which they have shared with the author. This populist element in her writing could explain why Lucy Golden has built up such a dev ... read more

For as long as I can remember I've always loved listening to and telling stories. I guess this part of my personality might have been influenced by my Ghanaian heritage because for years stories have been passed down from generation to generation in my culture.
As a young child, I spent most of my time imaging fantasy worlds and characters. At the age of six I started writing down the stories I had in my head, so that I could revisit them at a later date. However, I never showed them to anybody because I was such a private person.
As time passed by, I threw away most of my stories but still the desire to write burned at my very core so I continued to put pen to paper.
