I live in Southern New Jersey. I worked on my first novel, Reborn, for over three years and within that time I have developed synopses for many other series. My objective as a writer is not only to write an entertaining novel, but to create thought provoking content that really connects with readers on a deeper level.

I grew up in Washington State, in a loving family with siblings that taught me all sorts of things, including the not-so-well-known fact that ice cubes made from milk don’t taste very good. Then a week before starting junior high, my mother died and life changed. I lived with a few generous families after that, with whom I’m still in contact today, and graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in English and Comparative Literature.
Shortly thereafter I taught myself computers and programming, went to Microsoft and specialized in networks, networking, and the Windows operating system. By then I’d been writing fiction for some time, without much publishing luck, but gathering a whole lot of ... read more

Even though I started writing as a child to amuse myself and went on to co-publish a number of works in college, it wasn't until 2002 that I started writing professionally.
My creative bent has always been varied through the years but the one thing I have always kept on with is my writing. I am and always will be an artist, whether in the form of a musician, actor, painter or any of a number of directions life has taken me.
I write dark romance suspense/thrillers born out of the more negative elements of life… and death. My newest work is In Death Do We Care.
Me? I work and live in the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina, sometimes taking a pad and pen (remember those?) and heading up the trails, enjoyin ... read more

Ellison James crafts stories of fantasy, urban fantasy, erotica, and everything in between. Born in the Northwestern part of the United States, now living in the Southeast, Ellison James uses a lifetime of living throughout the world as backdrops for stories that usually start in the real world, and then make a quick departure into believable worlds of the fantastic.
"I like to play with perceptions, stretch the boundaries of believability by making Monsters, Demons, Elfs and Faeries seem like normal everyday folks that just happen to do extraordinary things."
The work of Ellison James is often erotic but never smutty, depicting this facet of life like it really is, and from all points of view.

Rick Talbot was born in Toronto, Canada. He grew up in the Saint James Town public-housing project, the most densely populated neighborhood in Canada.

ONCE UPON A TIME...
...I was born in New York City and grew up on Long Island where I had an interesting and creative childhood. Once in college, I studied Psychology and Philosophy, but since "thinking" didn't translate into earning money or job security, I worked at a variety of different and unrelated jobs both in New York City and on Long Island.
In order to keep me sane through all the craziness of life, I spent my spare time writing. Anything and everything. The culmination of this was a fantasy - The City of Light - which has recently been reissued as an ebook.
I took up the hobby of dog showing and breeding and produced many Pekingese Champions. You can see them over at our Castlerigg ... read more

I've just changed my profile picture. The spirit of the new picture--envisioning opportunity where one may not be obvious--continues to inform my life. Writing is an expression of that perspective. Whatever apparent limitations may exist, I don't acknowledge them. I go around. As a child I held the empty frame of a doll carriage and saw potential. It didn't matter that there was no doll, or carriage body. I firmly grabbed that naked chassis and played. With like optimism I move forward today with a new enterprise.
