Ich bin Jahrgang 1972 und lebe mit meiner Familie in einer Kleinstadt in Nordbaden. Mit dem Schreiben habe ich bereits in der Grundschule begonnen. Ich schreibe hauptsächlich Krimis und Horrorgeschichten, weil ich diese Genres auch als Leser am liebsten mag. Wichtig sind mir in all meinen Texten die Figurenentwicklung und die psychologischen Hintergründe. Außerdem versuche ich meist, meinen Geschichten irgendeinen ungewöhnlichen Aspekt zu verleihen.

Hard to imagine a more glamorous life than being an accountant, isn’t it? Still, CJ Carmichael gave up the thrills of income tax forms and double entry book-keeping when she sold her first book in 1998. She has now published 30 novels with Harlequin, and has twice been nominated for a RITA award. CJ likes to write stories about romance, family and intrigue. She’s inspired by real-life scenarios...the kind you read about in magazines and watch on the nightly news on television.

I am an Author/Artist. I use surreal writing to promote my surreal art. Most writers write a manuscript then look for an artist to add flavor. I do it back ass-words. Look at those original art covers (copyrighted). My Father was from Germany and a nuclear scientist in the early 40's. He was kidnapped by the Russians and sent to a secret underground laboratory. There he impregnated the General's daughter; THAT's ME!! After his death, I smuggled myself onto an armament supply train going to Viet-Nam in 1969. Using a deceased U.S. soldiers I.D.,I arrived in the America. Here I do art to survive in a cash economy. Luckily nobody knows about it!!!

For many years I worked on the corporate side of broadcasting, but the desire to do what I love (mainly make art) was too strong. So I left to set up my own business. I wrote my first novel, White Breakers, and decided Smashwords was a great place to publish. If enough people like my book, I'll write another one.

Terry LaBarba learned she could entertain through creative writing when she was a sixth grader and her class gave a round of applause after she read aloud a humorous story that she put together using the twenty spelling words for the week. Much later, with a creative streak unleashed, she wrote screenplays around premises she would like to see on screen with her favorite actors. The scripts became novels and her studies became metaphysical, always interested in new methods for healing the mind, body and spirit.
