Finally, 25 years after I started writing it, I am published my début novel 'First Years - Piranhas in the Bedroom'. It started in a time long before Google, Sky TV, iphones and X-Factor . Now it ends up being an E-book as well.
For the last six years I have been writing weekly humorous blogs based on SharePoint, but I really always wanted to be, in the words of the Beatles, a 'Paperback Writer'.
So finally I released my first fictional romantic comedy, 'First Years - Piranhas in the Bedroom'. Hopefully the first of a series of nostalgic books about an unfortunate young man called Jonathan Stadler, a Villa fan like me.
Now Jonathan Stadler is going back to 1981 for the ultimate Aston Villa experience in 'J ... read more

I was born in Pennsylvania, but grew up in Virginia and consider that my home state. Becoming a sports enthusiast at an early age led me to be a fan of the Baltimore Colts, primarily because of Johnny Unitas and the proximity of the team to my home in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

I was born and raised in Leicester, England. I fell in love with books and music over twenty years ago and that love affair continues today. When it comes to literature, I love all things horror and fantasy with the occasional sprinkling of crime. Mostly, I like stirring prose intertwined with well-developed characters. With music, I like anything that evokes an emotional response, that makes me feel something.
Hell's Paradise is my first novel. But there is much more to come.

Thank goodness for reading and writing because they are my sanity makers. I know life is all about the journey, that's why I like my fiction to be all about the destination. I want to be taken somewhere not here when I read, same goes with the stories I create. Thrills, chills, tears, and laughter, but there has to be something to hold on to at the end.

I grew up reading Vance, Varley, Silverberg, Asimov, and Clarke. Reading and writing have always been a passion of mine, but then college, med school, and residency got in the way. When I turned forty, I channeled my midlife crisis and began writing again. Nothing But Light and my novel, Gator & Shark Save the World, are one small part of that effort.
I'm an ear, nose, and throat doctor living in Central California with my wife, son, and various critters. Along with writing, I enjoy cooking and baking. Currently, I'm working on a webcomic -- no small task for someone with very little artistic talent.

Not so perfect in an imperfect world. Heroes are handsome, of course, the take charge type of guys. Story ideas are inspired from a life of observation and inspiration. But mainly flow from an overactive imagination. Love scenes are sensual, the heat level is hot. Endings are always happy.

Hello, my name is Maria Gorman. I was born to Italian immigrant parents and I grew up in Baltimore, MD. We were a typical Italian family, we spoke Italian in the house, ate Italian meals every day, and celebrated most holidays with a fabulous, fun group of Italians who came over to the US with my parents. They all had kids my age, so we had a great time growing up in this crazy Italian lifestyle.
I found a passion for reading while in elementary school, which probably helped me with my English, since I spoke only Italian as a child. Reading opened my mind to imagination and with that I always found myself creating stories in my head.
