Jude’s imagination frequently leads her astray, and she eagerly follows while trying to keep out of trouble, or at least not get caught. For those of you who know her, you’ll know that’s not always easy. A picture, a smell, an unexpected glimpse of flesh, or a load of soil in the back of a pick-up, are all fodder for her writing. Her male characters run the gamut from the alpha male ruling his women with an iron fist, to a simpering purple-clad boy-toy, whose only desire is to please. As diverse and as richly depicted, her women find themselves in a myriad of exotic and erotic situations, and are as lusty as their male counterparts, if not more so.
Jude has work published both online and in print. Google ... read more

Haley has always been a dreamer and a hopeless romantic. Her love for literature began when she was very small and she can still remember her trips to the local library as some of her fondest childhood memories. She knew at a young age that she wanted to share her passion for storytelling and one day become a writer.
Haley writes stories about capable, intelligent, and resilient young women who overcome incredible odds to finally find the love they truly deserve. Her characters are deeply personal and often reflect some of her own insecurities and deepest fears. Haley's stories are about the beauty of the human spirit, the struggles that we all face, and the universal truth that you can't do anything alone.

J. A. Crook
Unimpressed with the recent developments in horror writing, focused on the supernatural and incessant, graphic gore, J. A. Crook seeks to define himself a cultivator of a new direction in the horror fascination. Inspired by the mystery and science of H. P. Lovecraft, infused with the poetic darkness of Edgar Allen Poe, mentored by the American realism of Stephen King and ambitiously challenged to promote "real fear" in an era of skepticism, the stories that derive from the thoughtful mind of J. A. Crook are undoubtedly thought-provoking. J. A. Crook dabbles in the immense (and very possible) terror of the distorted human psyche and wades through the poetry of natural beauty with a dark affinity for how the natu ... read more

I am always grappling with good and evil, and my writing reflects that.
Stephen King, Robert Bloch, Dean Koontz, Robin Cook, Ray Bradbury, George RR Martin, Joe R. Landsdale, and John Skipp & Craig Spector (geez, with a name like 'SPECTOR" , you gotta' write horror and be good at it, right?) are some of my favorite authors and have had the biggest influences, with a very special shout out to Mr. Clive Barker...
