Being a Cancer, Darcy Abriel always has been fond of deep, dark places. She’s enjoyed ghost stories and things that go bump in the night since she could first read. When she was in high school, she and her rock band boyfriend and his buddies from the band once spent a weekend in her basement with the Ouija Board contacting a revolutionary war ghost. She’s loved monster movies from an early age, and she’s used to odd looks from people. Facing demons, inner and outer, is one of the things Darcy enjoys most when it comes to writing stories. She calls her office, “the cave” and doesn’t always play well with others. Bu she tries.

Follow me on Twitter at luvgracegoodwin
Once upon a time, a young girl was born into an average, working class family. The wee little girl, convinced she was not an average child but was, in fact, a fairy princess, longed to leave the mundane world behind and live her dreams. She grew up, went to school, and when she'd grown too big to wear tutus and tiaras in public without drawing unwanted attention, turned to writing down her fantasies instead. Now a bit older, her fantasies have grown to include sexually dominant men who know how to ensure a woman's pleasure. Grace believes all women should be treated like princesses, in the bedroom and out of it, and writes love stories where men know how to make their women feel pampered, protected and very wel ... read more

David M Butcher
Hi, my name is Dave Butcher and I grew up living with grandparents that drug me to church each week. As a teenager, I decided that all those biblical stories sounded like the fairy tales I learned as a kid. When I was able, I left the church and waded out into the world on my own. I became a drinker, a liar, a cheat, and a thief.
Eventually I landed in the Los Angeles County Jail after getting fired from my job "for reasons of honesty." I had been arrested for drunk driving. After a week, I was convicted of reckless driving and released with time served. After my release from jail, I felt like my entire world had fallen apart. While reading a book, I had a spiritual experience and my life changed dramaticall ... read more

The first story he can remember reading on his own was called Spook’s Bones, a tale of two boys who grant a ghost’s last wish to have his bones properly buried, and then enjoy sandwiches in celebration. He also liked listening to ghost stories on the radio and sneaking into the basement on Friday nights to watch the scary TV show, Ghost Story, which his mom did not approve of. Every day on his way home from school in 3rd grade, he visited a haunted house. Since then, John has stopped hiding under his pillow when listening to spooky stories, but he still ... read more
