Follow me on Twitter at @gerfnitauthor Michael Pickard
Mike Pickard’s writing serves as the bridge between his professional work in technology and his passion for the creative arts. Several of Pickard's short stories have been published, including Hardwired, which won a Ray Bradbury Creative Writing Prize in 2005. Pickard's first major work was The Gerfnit Chronicles, a science fiction mystery/adventure and his first novel. The story began as a series of letters to his daughter who spent several summers at overnight camp.

CW Seymore is the author of "Shards of Glass" my personal memior back into the horrors of childhood, spanning 15 years at the hands of my father. I wrote under a pen name to protect memebers of my family and the innocent involved. "Please Lord, don't let him find me, Please Lord, don't let him find me," was my daily prayer to a God I was hoping would be there. I sought safety when and where I could find it - in the cornfield, under the bed, behind the couch or in the forest, rocking back and forth, tears blurring my vision. I was petrified, terrified, alone and helpless to stop the physical, emotional, mental and sexual abuse my father inflicted day in and day out. If you’ve suffered in silence at the han ... read more

I never dreamed that I would someday publish a book, whether physical or electronic.

After reading the annual publication from cover to cover, I would never look at baseball statistics the same way again. Having been completely immersed in the exciting world of fantasy baseball, I began forecasting baseball player performance and producing projections of my own, and have been doing so ever since.

I got my start writing romance novels by accident. I have always been drawn to strong female characters in books, like Honor Harrington. And I also believe that there is a lack of LGBT characters in media. So one day I came up with a story idea that combines the two... two days later I completed the manuscript for Music of the Soul. My writing style may not be the most professional nor grammatically correct, but I never profess to be an English major, just a person that wants to share a story. I maintain that my primary language is sarcasm. Each of my books features strong likeable female characters that are flawed. I think that flaws and emotional or physical scars make us human and give us more character th ... read more

Jack L Marsch was born in May 1975 in Budapest. He went through the school system with the 'talented but lazy' epithet that was the result of boredom and an overactive imagination. This imagination as well as an innate curiosity towards the world led him to begin the search for a muse and a way to express himself. Ever since he can remember Marsch has been driven by the desire to create, stories and scenes jostling for attention and release; and it was the visual word of graphic art that he first turned his attention. When he realized that the static nature of lines and color on paper expressed only fleeting moments of tension that did not lend themselves to the crafting of more detailed scenarios and characte ... read more
