Van Allen Fiction by Screaming Weasel Productions is my latest work. I'm a former Captain in the US Marines who now writes thrillers and futuristic adventures, including stories with conspiracy theories, alien invasions, space wars, and of course the zombie apocalypse.

Geri Glenn is the best-selling author of the Kings of Korruption MC series. She lives in beautiful New Brunswick, Canada. She is a military wife, the mother of two gorgeous, but slightly crazy little girls, and works full time as a support worker in an assisted living facility for seniors. Even with all of this, she still finds the time to be a voracious reader and most recently, a writer.
Geri reads books like a human breathes air. She devours books of almost every genre of fiction there is, although she is a sucker for swoon-worthy alpha males and pretty much any book that can make her cry ... or scare the crap out of her.

"I've always admired writers like James Herbert and Clive Barker. I met and interviewed them and they inspired me to write. I've written articles and short stories for magazines/fanzines and a variety of items that were never published.
The self-publishing phenomenon occurred which enabled me to publish my first book, Access Denied, at the end of 2013. It's a true story. A deeply personal and heart-wrenching account of my becoming a father and then finding out several years later that my daughter wasn't mine.

I am not an Impressionist or an Expressionist. I am an Aerial Pressionist. Focus in creating depth in a painting though the usage of atmospheric perspective, as well as mixing impressionism and expressionism together. That style hold true in my writing too.
For I find myself depicting a scene not by objective reality but by the arousal and responses it creates within. Yet, at the same time I am bond on concentrating on the general impression produced by the subject through colors and strokes.
This process applies in my creativity in painting and in my writing.
