Eric Miller is one part teacher, one part juggler, one part writer and er...well, several other parts as well. Born and raised in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada he has been on the move for the past three years working, traveling and sometimes a bit of both at the same time. He originally went to school for five years to get degrees in mathematics and education but decided during this time that as good as math is, writing fictional stories about a fictional character and juggling torches and a chainsaw to boot was much more exciting. Mostly, he writes stories that he enjoys reading but if you're entertained as well, that's even better.

Selene Grace Silver
Selene believes in two true things: love and the power of stories. Everything else is up for debate.
First and foremost, she's been an avid reader her entire life. True story. In high school, her English teacher told Selene that she was also going to be a high school English teacher (probably because she actually read the assigned novels). Horrified by this prediction (think about it--eternity in high school?!), she fled home for university. She did her best to make it a permanent stay--changing majors back and forth multiple times, completing classes that had nothing to do with any of those majors, transferring to new colleges several times--eventually earning more than double the credits required for a BA in ... read more

I specialize in writing realistic fiction; both historical and contemporary. I am blessed to have an overdeveloped imagination! I often get my ideas for stories from dreams.
I try to not write in a particular genre. In these times of mega novel series books, I think it's important to value the importance of the short stories, novelettes, and novellas. A great story doesn't have be a book the size of a dictionary. It can stand on its own and not have to be a trilogy or a series. Many people are so busy they do not have the time to invest in a mega novel. I think what sets me apart from ... read more

I have never dealt with writers block and I do not believe I ever will, for I have more trouble shutting my imagination down, to sleep at night, than I have prodding it back to life again.
