Follow me on Twitter at LaurenWoodcock5
I was born in Sheffield, United Kingdom in 1987, and my passion for the written word started from an early age. I was the five year old tucked up reading Enid Blyton while my friends played outside; the ten year old writing stories on the beach rather than building sandcastles; the sixteen year old spending hours each night filling in my diary instead of watching TV ... or sleeping. I kept the fire for writing burning throughout my degree in Speech and Language Therapy, penning my first full length story in the breaks between classes.
In 2010 I began working in a college for young people with autism, another area of interest for me since my brother’s diagnosis with the disorder when I was seven years old. I ... read more

A little bit about myself. I'm an author & artist, and my nickname both online and off is Chatty Kathy...with good reason. I love reading and writing, spending time with family and friends, cooking, and watching disaster movies with my husband. I’m not overly fond of parties, unless they are casual dinners or barbeques with close friends and family.
I love animals both real and stuffed toy ones - much to my family and friends’ amusement, for they love to tease me about my penchant for purchasing stuffed animals, especially ones that are damaged and earmarked for the trash bin, to add to my ever growing collection of teddy bears and other stuffed animals. I cannot stand those creepy little Easter Mars ... read more

Lanie Jordan writes stories. Sometimes her characters drive her crazy, but then she gets her revenge by making their lives more difficult. Fictional payback is fun.
She loves reading, writing, watching TV, and listening to the same songs for months on end. The WWE is a not-so-secret secret obsession of hers, and she vows to one day write a story about wrestlers, just so she can claim watching it is for research.
Dean Winchester from Supernatural is one of her all-time favorite characters. Her friends would probably tell you she's obsessed with all things Dean/Supernatural; she's not, really. She just loves them a little. Okay, so it might be a tad more than a little, but if anyone ever finds out she'll claim ... read more

Heart stopping puppy chases, childhood melodrama and the aborted hangings of innocent toys are all in a day’s work for Nikki Duncan. This athletic equestrian turned reluctant homemaker turned daring author, is drawn to the siren song of a fresh storyline.
Nikki plots murder and mayhem over breakfast, scandalous exposes at lunch and the sensual turn of phrase after dinner. Nevertheless, it is the pleasurable excitement and anticipation of unraveling her character’s motivation that drives her to write long past the witching hour.
The only anxiety and apprehension haunting this author comes from pondering the mysterious outcome of her latest twist.

I've been writing as a passion since I was a kid. Tried to make a career out of it during and after college, but abandoned that idea after struggling to pay bills and tuition. I kept writing as a hobby during my career in Financial Services, and now thanks to the self-publishing boom I am making my work available!
I have a wide range of favorite musicians, particularly those who are heavily influenced by the old-school rock era. My favorite of all time is Bruce Springsteen.
I hope you enjoy the book! Visit my website www.storytellerplace.com for free short stories and some other stuff. It is still being built out at the moment, but check back periodically.

At any given moment, I have a chapter for an upcoming book just screaming to escape my mind and make it on paper. Roughly 15 percent of the time it does. The other 85 percent is lost to caring for three children 7 and under; editing books, blogs, articles, and manuals part time; and basically accomplishing all that goes along with being a work-at-home mom. As I summon the muse to help me with the remaining 85 percent, you'll see some excellent non-fiction titles (like Milk Diaries) to help moms on their journey.

E. W. Sullivan (Sullivan) was born in Jacksonville, Florida in 1963. Aside from the twenty dollars or so he earned as a teenager shoveling and spreading dirt in the low-lying areas of his neighbors' yards, he's busted tables in a pizza joint, and scrubbed dishes in a private country club. Things got a little better for him when, for summer money, his father loaded up the bed of his old F-150 with watermelons, set him on a street corner saying, "You keep what you earn". Since then he has worked as an architect and contractor, taught computer networking, and owned a financial services company.

He's written quite a few short stories and spent several years writing music reviews and columns for Industrial Nation magazine and ReGen webzine, though he's best-unknown for the publication of The Big Rusty Lie, a non-mystery revolving around the exploits of Bernardo Walterhaus, detective extrordinaire.
When not avoiding writing by doing almost anything else, Ryan can be found sleeping or yelling at his cats.

Daniel Medway (the real author of this chronicle) is the worthless scion of a proud old Mississippi family that sorely wishes he’d stop mentioning the relationship.
Declared “a waste of a placenta” by his daddy on the day of his birth — a prediction that proved eerily accurate as the years unfolded — Daniel will probably best be remembered for writing some poems that James Dickey (briefly) liked one night on a drunken tear, the Great Harpoon Incident, and the miles of microfilmed evidence the FBI once gathered on him.
Having squandered some early promise in the pursuit of Jim Beam, pretty women, and the perfect stereo system for his complete collection of the Fugs, Daniel recently unearthed a dog-ea ... read more
