77 Magical Fantasy Authors!

Christopher Kellen

Christopher Kellen is an IT specialist who thinks he's got what it takes to spin the occasional swords-and-sorcery yarn. His heroes of literature are those who are fearless in telling an uncompromising story. He wishes that there were more people who wrote like Robert E. Howard, H.P. Lovecraft, and Karl Edward Wagner, and while he knows that that he can never live up to their genius, he hopes to contribute something to the genre that they so loved. He lives in New Hampshire with his wife and their monstrous black dog.

Steve LeBel

Businessmen are serious people, right?  Not always.  Steve LeBel — hospital president, technology entrepreneur, algorithmic trader — is definitely not serious.  Not when he writes.
Whimsy overcomes him at the word processor. Whimsy is at the core of his novel, The Universe Builders, which is told with LeBel’s unique balance of seriousness, humor, and whimsy.

Steve lives in Muskegon, Michigan with his wife and two cats.  When not writing, he can be found cursing the stock market, providing tech support for his friends, or thinking up new plots for The Universe Builders.

Robin Lythgoe

Robin Lythgoe was born in Maryland, but spent several years in Oregon and did a short stint in upstate New York before moving to Utah. She married an artist, and together they have four wonderful children. Reading and writing have always been a part of her life, and she is particularly drawn to fantasy. Her mother often headed up expeditions to the library, from which the entire party invariably returned laden with a stack of books guaranteed to make the arms longer. Robin read everything voraciously, and when she finished her stack, she'd start on her mother's… and then her sisters'. Today she writes tales about wizards and magic, fantastical places and extraordinary journeys.

F R Maher


Sometime ghost-hunter, (yes really), rune-reader (980+ positive feedback on eBay til they banned it), seer, metaphysician, psychic... and sceptic…

Jamie Marchant

Jamie began writing stories about the man from Mars when she was six, and she never remembers wanting to be anything other than a writer. Everyone told her she needed a back up plan, so she pursued a Ph.D. and started teaching writing and literature at Auburn University. One day in the midst of writing a piece of literary criticism, she realized she’d put her true passion on the backburner and neglected her muse. The literary article went into the trash, and she began the book that was to become The Goddess’s Choice. Her other novels include The Soul Stone, The Ghost in Exile, The Shattered Throne, and The Bull Riding Witch. She claims she writes about the fantastic and the tortured soul. Her poor characters have hard lives. She lives in Alabama, with her husband and three cats. She is the mother of a grown son.

A.E. Marling

Fantasy writer, dancer, law-abiding citizen, human being (in that order). I encourage everyone to touch the sky of human imagination. Read fantasy.

Scott Marlowe

Scott Marlowe divides his time between writing fiction, mountain biking, and designing software systems for the accounting and medical industries. He currently lives in Texas with his wife and two crazy dogs.

Daniel R. Marvello

Daniel R. Marvello writes magical fantasy adventure stories. He lives in a log home deep in the forest of the North Idaho panhandle with his wife of twenty-plus years and a small support staff of Samoyeds. His professional background is in database and software development as well as technical writing.

Daniel's fiction writing was inspired by his love for reading magical fantasy and his years of enjoying fantasy role-playing games. His fiction works include The Vaetra Chronicles, a swords & sorcery adventure series, The Ternion Order, a contemporary paranormal fantasy series, and The Western Geomancer, a western fantasy adventure series.

Tara Maya

Tara Maya has lived in Africa, Europe and Asia. She's pounded sorghum with mortar and pestle in a little clay village where the jungle meets the desert, meditated in a Buddhist monastery in the Himalayas and sailed the Volga river to a secret city that was once the heart of the Soviet space program. This first-hand experience, as well as research into the strange and piquant histories of lost civilizations, inspires her writing. Her terrible housekeeping, however, is entirely the fault of pixies.

Melissa McPhail

Melissa McPhail is a classically trained pianist, violinist and composer, a Vinyasa yoga instructor, and an avid Fantasy reader. A long-time student of philosophy, she is passionate about the Fantasy genre because of its inherent philosophical explorations. Ms. McPhail lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, their twin daughters and two very large Maine Coon cats.

Cephrael's Hand is the award-winning first novel in her epic fantasy series A Pattern of Shadow and Light.

Becca Mills

Becca Mills teaches literature and writing at a liberal arts college in the northeastern U.S. Her blog, The Active Voice, supports independent authorship through book reviews, writing tips, and analysis of the publishing world.

Marsha A. Moore

Marsha A. Moore loves to write fantasy and fantasy romance. Much of her life feeds the creative flow she uses to weave highly imaginative tales.

The magic of art and nature often spark life into her writing, as well as watercolor painting and drawing. She’s been a yoga enthusiast for over a decade and is a registered yoga teacher. After a move from Toledo to Tampa in 2008, she’s happily transformed into a Floridian, in love with the outdoors. Marsha is crazy about cycling. She lives with her husband on a large saltwater lagoon, where taking her kayak out for an hour or more is a real treat. She never has enough days spent at the beach, usually scribbling away at stories with toes wiggling in the sand. Every day at the beach is magical!

C.L. Mozena

Carey L. Mozena lives in southeast Ohio. Originally from the big city, she enjoys the laid-back way of life that the country offers. She spends her days working on her latest novel and writing short fictional stories for the newspaper.

Vera Nazarian

VERA NAZARIAN is a two-time Nebula Award Nominee, award-winning artist, and member of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, a writer with a penchant for moral fables and stories of intense wonder, true love, and intricacy.

She is the author of critically acclaimed novels DREAMS OF THE COMPASS ROSE and LORDS OF RAINBOW, as well as the outrageous parodies MANSFIELD PARK AND MUMMIES and NORTHANGER ABBEY AND ANGELS AND DRAGONS, and most recently, PRIDE AND PLATYPUS: MR. DARCY'S DREADFUL SECRET in her humorous and surprisingly romantic Supernatural Jane Austen Series, and COBWEB BRIDE.

After many years in Los Angeles, Vera lives in a small town in Vermont, and uses her Armenian sense of humor and her Russian sense of suffering to bake conflicted pirozhki and make art.

Paul Neslusan

Paul Neslusan grew up enchanted with the way that books could transport him anywhere. He began the Solypse series to try to create a world as immersive as the ones he loved while he was growing up. His goal is to create an epic fantasy world that is both appealing and immersive for all readers ages 15 to 150.

He lives in Central Massachusetts with his extremely patient wife and three children.

Dave Neuendorf

Dave Neuendorf has been an avid reader of fantasy, science fiction, and political thrillers since the 1950's, when he would rather read than romp during recess in school. After decades of making notes of stories he'd like to write, he finally set out to create his own fantasy series in 2015. The first fruit of his efforts is The Summoned King, published in February 2016, as book one of The Kalymbrian Chronicles. The Development of the series will proceed as time allows while he continues to pursue his day job as a Java software development consultant.

Dave has been married since 1976 to his one love, Patricia. He is the father of three sons and grandfather of one boy and one girl. He and his family live with their three dogs, a Samoyed, a Siberian Husky, and a Giant Alaskan Malamute in Aurora, Indiana.

Mysti Parker

Mysti Parker is a full-time wife, mom of three, and a writer. Born and raised in Kentucky, writing has always been her first love. After many years of pursuing other things, she began her writing career in earnest in 2009. Look for her second book in the Tallenmere series, Serenya's Song, coming in April.

Alex Pearl

Alex Pearl is an advertising copywriter living in NW London with his wife and two kids.
    'Sleeping with the Blackbirds' - a black, comic urban fantasy, was initially written for his children and is published by Amazon's CreateSpace.
    In 2014 his short story, 'Scared to Death' - the fictionalised account of the first British serviceman to be executed for cowardice during the First World War, was published by Mardibooks along with 22 other short stories in an anthology entitled 'The Clock Struck War.'
    A selection of pieces taken from his popular blog is now also available in paperback published under the title: 'Random Ramblings of a Short-sighted Blogger.'
    Alex's claim to fame is that he is quite possibly the only person on this planet to have been accidentally locked in a record shop on Christmas Eve.

Shane Porteous

Why do I write? It is simply who I am. I strive to tell original stories and make sure I am not bound by the traditions of genre. If I had to label my work than it is best described as Alternative Dark Fantasy.

Agatha Raine

I've always had a vivid imagination, ever since I was a child. My mother once asked me why I didn't write my ideas down. At 10, that seemed like a ridiculous amount of work, but by 12 I was scribbling short fan-fiction stories in the back of my notebook between classes. I'll state up front, I support fan-fiction. It's the venue where I first developed my writing and story-telling skills, and to this day, some of my most favored writings are fan-fiction. At 14, I decided I enjoyed writing enough that I wanted to create my own worlds and characters. I began work on a series of unpublished science fiction novels, a ongoing project that lasted me several years. Now, with 13 years of writing under my belt, I've more book ideas than I've got time to write!
