My name is Kathy Crouch. My pen name is Kat Deacon. I’m married with two wonderful children. I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember.

I enjoy creating characters with flaws to show that even in fiction we aren’t perfect.

Sherry Gloag

While out walking, she enjoys talking to her characters—as long as there are no other walkers close by.
Apart from writing, Gloag enjoys gardening, walking,and reading. She cheerfully admits her books tend to take over most of the shelf and floor space in her workroom-cum-office. She also finds crystal craft work therapeutic.
Jared Gullage
Jared Gullage was born and raised in Opelika, Alabama. Though at first a slow learner in reading and writing, once he began to do so, I grew to love it. His father always told him that to be a great writer, a person must learn to form pictures with words. Since him brother was the better cartoonist and visual artist, he worked at creating stories. Role-playing and an excellent education in English throughout high school honed his skills further.
Attending Auburn University, he majored in English. Throughout his life, creative writing and anything that makes it better, easier, or more worthy, has been that which appeals to him most. Often, to understand this world, he took his knowledge to imaginary ones to toy with. He's jokingly told his students that writing is his default setting and what he'd do if he had to decide on one thing to do forever. Writing is much less a thing he does, but a place and time, a brief leap from the boundaries of the mundane.

I like to say I live in a fantasy world of endless green forests, cascading silvery rivers that run between shining, snow-capped mountains, and within reach of both a high desert scabland and a sandy-beached, marine blue ocean. It's called Washington State. I share this wonderland with two to three generations of adult males (more or less, depending on time and circumstances), the requisite two writer's cats of mixed heritage and contradicting dispositions, and all sorts of other mossy-backed folk who don't mind the rain that makes our land so magical. I love to fill my historical and fantasy romance with this same feeling of magic.
I'm a three time winner of the Golden Heart and have won many other awards for my books. I have been involved in e-publishing almost from the industry's beginning. Besides writing, my other favorite addiction is designing covers for ebooks.
Now, it's true, my life doesn't always seem all that rich in fantasy and beauty. But every word of it is true. I might have dressed it up a bit for the introductions, but since that's the way I like it, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
R.J. Jerome

R.J. Jerome grew up in historic Bristol, Pennsylvania, where his interest in secret societies, the paranormal, and religions was born.
Secret societies and religions have always intrigued him. He spends most of his free time researching these topics. They fuel the imagination. He once attended a private lecture at the Gloucester Cathedral where he witnessed two priests debating over an old scroll. This spawned the idea for ‘The Pelagius Game’ series. He spent the next four years researching missing texts, attending more lectures, and constructing narratives for six books.
When starting the project, R.J. needed a title for his series and he remembered stumbling across Pelagianism, a theological theory named after the British monk, Pelagius. Pelagius believed that original sin did not taint human nature and a mortal's will is still capable of choosing good or evil without special Divine aid.
From this, R.J. constructed the idea of a competition between God and Satan using gifted beings as pawns in a cosmic game that determines the end of days.
When not busy researching religions and secret societies, you can find R.J. discussing Manchester City FC, craft beer, red wine, and absinthe's.
Margaret Karmazin
Margaret Karmazin's credits include short stories published in over seventy magazines, including Rosebud, North Atlantic Review, Potomac Review, Confrontation, Mobius, Chiron Review, and Carve Magazine.

She lives by a lake in northeast Pennsylvania with her husband and two cats.
Reading and writing is a wonderful diversion from an often-difficult world. I love to create my own stories and have control over how things will end. It's exciting to create brand new worlds and characters. My imagination can come alive.
In sci-fi and paranormal stories, I can invent wonderful places and people. Anything is possible in these genres and that's limitless. I'm able to create an escape into a special world filled with unique and fantastic things and there is always a happy ending.
A high school teacher inspired me to write. However, instead of initially pursuing my writing career I became a lawyer. I work in divorce court, so romance is a great escape. There can be true love and happy-endings, at least on my pages.
My two children and I have two good-humored dogs that share our home and ease our stress. I have traveled and lived all over the world and these experiences have given me great creative ideas.
I look forward to creating many more adventures in romance.

Georgina Sellwood

The first time the writing bug bit my children were small, and I used to write while the kids had their afternoon nap. When they were bigger, I had to stop; I was just too busy. Four and a half years ago, I moved here to the prairies and finally had time to write again. I read on the net that if you write a page a day you can have a novel written in a year.
That was doable, so I sat down with pen and paper and six months later I had a short novel finished. I have since graduated to using a laptop and have written three novels and one novella.
I write inspirational romance because when I was seventeen, I had stopped going to church and picked up a Grace Livingston Hill Inspirational and came back to a close relationship with God.
I decided I would like to give my readers that same experience. Something life changing and positive. 

Pembroke Sinclair

Pembroke Sinclair is a literary jack of all trades, playing her hand at multiple genres. She has written an eclectic mix of fiction ranging from horror to sci-fi and even some westerns.

Jamieson Wolf
Jamieson Wolf has often viewed the world with a different eye than most people. Anything can be a story; a conversation, a flight of birds, a song. Words come from inspiration. Jamieson often feels he has too many words. "I guess I have a lot of Muses." He says, "If I don't write, I go crazy."

Writing from an early age, Jamieson was not really aware that he wanted to become a writer. Starting with poetry, he slowly began to fill journals with words. They words didn't really have meaning to him at the time; they were scratches on paper. Turning away from his words for a time, trying to find his way in the big world of the corporate drones, he enjoyed a great many different hats.

One night, after a particularly bad day at his zillionth office job, Jamieson came upon his old journals and started reading. When he was done, night had come, but instead of sleeping he got up and found a blank journal. And started writing.

"The words just kept coming." he says. "It was like they were there, underneath my skin all the time. I just didn't know it. I wanted to be an actor you know." Here he bends forward and sits in a more comfortable position. "I went to school for it and everything. I loved the acting." He makes a face. "I just didn't like the people."

Reading those words was like an epiphany. Jamieson knew what he wanted to do at that point; but it would take time. Approaching the art of writing like a Bard in training (Seven Years Learning, Seven Years Practicing, Seven Years Teaching) Jamieson has branched outward to give his voice it's hold.

Currently his work is available in: Susan Sarandon: A True Maverick and Fantasies: The World's Greatest Short Stories. He has also had his fiction published in: The Dark Krypt, Clean Sheet's Erotica, Mytholog, The House of Pain, The Twilight Times and others. He is currently a Senior Reviewer at Linear Reflections and is currently working on his fourth serial novel and a dark children's tale.

"I just love what I do." He says. "I'm going to be telling stories for a long time to come. It's like I can tap into the world around me and hear the tattoo under the ground. It's quite the feeling."
Miles Wright

Geoff Wright writing as Miles Wright lives in a small seaside village on the beautiful far south coast of Australia, with his wife and children (and his fish.) Right from an early age he fell in love with the outdoors; especially the sea. When he was very young he lived on a small farm, and spent many happy hours searching the creek for small fishes, tortoises and other make-believe creatures. He learned to ride a horse at the age of four, and sometimes rode his horse to school. When he was eight years old his family went to live on a river. There were no roads or cars down by the river, making it a very secluded and idyllic place to live. After school he spent many happy hours fishing, and sometimes hiked with friends up the river to exciting and unexplored places. These magical experiences and places have helped form the backdrop for some of the settings in his books.
He began reading books at an early age, and started writing short fantasy and science fiction stories, which his teacher would read to the class. His favourite subject all through school was English, and he won a Commonwealth Scholarship before going on to university to study English Literature and Marine Biology. He also has spent time studying at Moore Theological College. He is also a member of YALITCHAT, an organization for those who write Young Adult books. He is a keen environmentalist, and supports the local zoo for endangered species. He owned a Christian bookstore for several years, and would like to use the sales from his own books to support the Salvation Army, and help those less fortunate in society.
