Will English

Will English was born in Atlanta Georgia in 1985. He began his love affair with all things fantasy in 1997 when he first picked up a little series called "Lord of The Rings." Incidentally, that was also the year he started writing fiction. His first collection of short stories, "Walking With Summer Dreams," was first self-published as an e-book on both and the Kindle. He currently lives in Georgia and is hard at work on his first proper novel.

Roger Eschbacher

Roger Eschbacher is a TV animation writer who's written for a lot of shows you've heard of and a lot you haven't.

Roger lives in California with his family and two crazy Border Terriers.

Tracy Falbe

I was born in Michigan in 1972 and grew up in Mount Pleasant. It's called the "Mountain Town" but there is no mountain and it's debatable about whether it's pleasant. They say it's a party town and based on extensive research as a young adult I can concur.

Vanessa Finaughty

Vanessa grew up in Cape Town, and still lives there with her husband of fifteen years, her baby daughter and plenty of furry, four-legged ‘children’.

Her passion for the written word started her career as an editor and copywriter, and she part-ran a writers’ critique group for close on seven years. She's been writing ever since she learnt how, has always been an avid reader, and currently lives on coffee and cigarettes.

Her interests include reading, photography, the supernatural, life's mysteries and martial arts, of which she has five years’ experience.

Lori J. Fitzgerald

Lori J. Fitzgerald lives in New York with her fellow English Major husband and their two little bookworms. Medieval literature is her passion, and she wishes she could spend more time traipsing around Renaissance Faires and shouting “Huzzah” at jousts. She was a middle school English teacher for many years and was best known for her dramatic readings of The Princess Bride. Lori is currently a Staff Writer for the website Once Upon A Fan, the popular fansite for ABC’s hit show Once Upon A Time.

Catherine Fitzsimmons

A perpetual temp who has worked for a number of evil empires, Catherine decided to forgo things like a salary and regular human interaction to start a business. She lives near Toronto, Ontario with her husband, daughter and a black Himalayan with a tendency to slide into walls.

M. Todd Gallowglas

M. Todd Gallowglas has been writing stories of one form or another since received his very first writing assignment in third grade. He has been a professional storyteller at Renaissance Faires for twenty years. In 2009, he received his Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University.

Katharina Gerlach

What would you like to know about me? Shall I tell you about the tomboy who turned the forest around her house into a haunted grove or Little Red's riding grounds? Or about the seven-year old who decided to become a forester...and who did? Maybe, you'd be more interested in the school girl who wrote one-page stories for all her friends and relatives. I still see myself as Rainbow Girl, sliding though hollowed out tree trunks to help Mother Nature fight evil polluters. I still sing evening songs with the wood nymphs—except I've got to walk quite a bit longer these days to reach the woods. And I still make up stories for those around me. If you need to know more about me, my three kids, my husband, dog, or house, please look at my homepage.

Marise Ghorayeb

I am an engineer by day and an author by night. My love of writing started when I was thirteen and, quite frankly, bored out of my mind. My mother and I were visiting my grandparents in Egypt during the summer holidays. To me, this meant I was cut off from English television and all my American school friends. I had already read every Nancy Drew book I'd brought with me for the trip and it seemed my last hope of finding something to do was my aunt’s dinosaur of a laptop that didn’t even run Windows 95. There were no games on it, so I opened up a word processor and started to type. That is when I found my passion for story telling as well as a new way to survive summer vacation.

Jamie Leigh Haden

Jamie Leigh Haden is the author of Spirit Seeker and Illuminate-Alive, She Cried. Her episodic fiction, Thralldom, is now available to read and listen to on Big World Network. Vera, a Post-Experimentalism story, is offered by Bartleby Snopes in their 2012 Post-Experimentalism issue. Jamie has a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy and taught middle school in WV, KY, and NC. She lives by the seashore in NC with her husband and three daughters.

William L. Hahn

Will Hahn has been in love with heroic tales since age four, when his father read him the Lays of Ancient Rome and the Tales of King Arthur. He taught Ancient-Medieval History for years, but the line between this world and others has always been thin; the far reaches of fantasy, like the distant past, still bring him face to face with people like us, who have choices to make.

Omon Hart

Omon Hart was born in Portland, Oregon and grew up on the outskirts of the city in a little town known as Gladstone, where he graduated high school and moved on to college. After studying Therapeutic Bodywork at East-West College of the Healing Arts, he excelled in his field, becoming one of the Pacific Northwest's leading Therapeutic teachers and bodywork professionals. After several years, the love for writing tugged at his heart so much that he decided to put things aside and live his passion - write. He's now fashioning story after story, creating imaginative worlds of inspiration and art.

Henry, Josh & Harrison Herz

Struck by inspiration one day, Henry began a fun project with his two bright young sons, who share his joy of entering the magical realms of fantasy. Together, they wrote this tale. By day, Henry is a management consultant who also teaches after school enrichment for elementary school children. Josh and Harrison Herz are elementary school students who enjoy fantasy stories. Josh's hobbies include parkour, building with LEGOs, and painting Warhammer miniatures. Harrison plays basketball, and collects Yu-gi-oh cards & KidRobot vinyl figures. Both are big fans of The Lord of the Rings and the San Diego Comic-Con. We are distant relatives of Madeleine L'Engle, whose book A Wrinkle in Time was just ranked #3 on the top 100 children's books of all time. Writing must be in the DNA!

Elle Jacklee

I live in Wisconsin with my husband and two young sons, none of whom are in a hurry to grow up (which is just fine with me). I've been an avid reader since I was about five years old. My professional background has included sales, customer service, and software programming. But my favorite title, besides "mom" and "wife", is "author".

My first fantasy novel is The Tree of Mindala: Wunderwood Book One. I'm currently working on the next installment in the series.

Aithne Jarretta

Aithne Jarretta; Clearwater, Florida, United States. Once upon a time Aithne Jarretta tripped upon a ley line. Actually it had happened before, but she didn’t realize the ramifications until later. She brushed the incident aside and climbed into her car. Real life was the important factor at the moment. However, those RL moments wove into meeting new friends—the kind most people never see and definitely don’t chat much about. Those friends came with persistent voices. Eventually Aithne brought them out of the closet and politely called them Muses. They became her virtual traveling companions and still journey with her today. Author: "Concentric Circles," "Wyndy: In a Heartbeat," "Kissing Santa," "Claire: the Lost Fae," Flash Fiction: "Flashpoint" and "The Match Maker"

RA Jones

RA Jones was born in 1955 and grew up in a mining village in South Wales with his nose in a book and his head in the clouds. He managed to subdue his imagination long enough to carve out a career in medicine, writing whenever the chance arose. A growing desire to move away from adult thrillers and write for children is what currently preoccupies him.
