Tamara Zeegers is a forty two year old bookkeeper, with a huge creative streak. Unfortunately that is not a trait they appreciate in her line of work (strangely they do not look kindly upon creative bookkeeping), so she had to find other ways to satisfy these needs. So drawing and writing became her outlets to vent all this creative energy. Her writing first took the form of song texts and poetry, then progressed to short stories.
Her love affair with the United Kingdom, its people and language started at the age of two when her folks started to holiday there every year. Due to her young age she picked up the language with ease. By the time she went to high school she sailed through her English classes.

I was born on the banks of an ancient river in a country which no longer exists.
I began telling stories as a child and never stopped. To date, I have written close to three million words in more than 20 published books. My novel, The Secrets of Jin-shei, has been published in 14 languages. My popular Young Adult Worldweavers series features New World magic and a heroine who is as American as Harry Potter is British.
I like books, embroidery, music ranging from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" to Dvorak's New World Symphony, animals, coffee, chocolate, snow, velvet -- and, in people, kindness, intelligence and an off-the-wall sense of humor.

I wrote So Long Constipation, Part 1 as a result of having had chronic constipation that lasted nearly an entire year.
Six years ago, I noticed that I was periodically constipated and brushed it off, thinking it was just a temporary bout of irritable bowel (IBS) caused by stress. As the months went by, I felt increasingly annoyed by the situation, primarily because of my considerable knowledge on the subject of fitness and nutrition.
Eventually, having accepted the fact that I must have missed a detail or two, I begun to research the issue. Not only did I find the immediate solution for the problem, but I also came across information that helped me connect constipation to other common modern day ailments whic ... read more

James Pratt likes to create realistically flawed but basically decent characters and have them cross paths with serial killer angels, redneck vampires, slithering horrors from other dimensions, and the end of the world. He also likes to write stories that demonstrate how the ever-present darkness threatening to wash over the world like a wave of endless night can be held back with a little courage and a big shotgun (assuming one hasn't already used both barrels, of course). Some take place in the distant past, others in the far future, and still others somewhere between eight minutes ago and twelve minutes from now. Whether sci-fi, adventure, or straight-out horror, the running theme is that the universe is ver ... read more

But when an opportunity presented itself to leave behind the world of commerce and grab a chance to do something creative, I took it.
I had always wanted to explore a particular science fiction idea, which I originally had when I was much younger. (I am still surprised that none of the great writers in the field had already tackled it.) It’s the possibility of sending messages back in time using tachyons.
(This IS a possibility - recent events at CERN show that many serious scientists take the idea of particles moving backwards in time seriously. It does not contravene general relativity, or quantum mechanics - at least as far as I am aware at time of writing. It is c ... read more
