77 Magical Fantasy Authors!

Cynthia Ravinski

Cynthia Ravinski holds a Bachelor in Fine Arts degree from the University of Maine at Farmington, with specialties in French and History and a Master’s in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill. While having grown up in southeastern Massachusetts, she currently lives in Portland, Maine. She procrastinates with lapidary and jewelry making, fiber arts, and backpacking. To say she is obsessed with drinking tea is an understatement.

Patricia Reding

Following her dream to study the law, Patricia finally met her goal, then spent the next years trying to juggle husband, children, home and career—and to fit in time for her hobbies like, performing in musical dramas, gardening, cooking, reading, and. . . .

With her eldest having flown the nest and the two younger coming closer to doing so by the day, Patricia turned her attention to new endeavors—specifically, to creating new worlds. Oathtaker, Patricia's first published work, began as a challenge, but Patricia discovered along the way, the joy of storytelling.

Currently, Patricia is working on Select, the first sequel to Oathtaker (when she is not taking care of her home and family, or practicing law, or trying to figure out how to create a world in which she can be in two places at once).

Mathew Reuther

I tear words screaming out of the nothingness, hammer them into rough shape, and fold them until their meaning is sharper than the edge of Jack the Ripper’s razor.

In other words? I write fiction.

Juli D. Revezzo

Juli D. Revezzo is a Florida girl, with a love of fantasy, science fiction, and Arthurian legend, so much so she gained a B.A. in English and American Literature. She loves writing stories with fantastical elements whether it be a full-on fantasy, or a story set in this world--slightly askew. She has been published in short form, and recently released her debut novel, The Artist's Inheritance. She also has an article and book review or two out there. But her heart lies in the storytelling. She is a member of the Romance Writers of America, the Tampa Area Romance Authors, and the special interest RWA chapter, Fantasy, Futuristic and Paranormal. When not blogging, and she's writing and always has something in the works, be they revisions, or plotting her next fantasy saga or what have you.

Sue Santore

As a young girl, I read the Narnia series by C.S. Lewis,and I have been hooked on fantasy ever since. For years I have had my own fantasy stories spinning around in my head and now that I am retired from many years of teaching, I am putting those stories into book form.

Vanna Smythe

Vanna Smythe is the author of "Protector," the first book in the Anniversary of the Veil fantasy series. She has been writing creatively since her early teens, though one could say her creative writing efforts started long before that. While still in kindergarten, she once tore up a library book to make alphabet soup, and has been fascinated with what words can do, the pictures and worlds they can create, ever since. Book two of the Anniversary of the Veil series, "Decision Maker," is due out in Autumn, 2012.

TC Southwell

T. C. Southwell was born in Sri Lanka and moved to the Seychelles when she was a baby. She spent her formative years exploring the islands – mostly alone.

T. C. Southwell has written over thirty novels, ranging from fantasy and science fiction to romance and adventure, as well as five screenplays. Her hobbies include motorcycling, horse riding and art, and she is now a full-time writer.

Ryk Spoor

Born in Omaha, Nebraska, and moved around the country quite a bit; I've lived in Omaha, Vermilion (South Dakota), Atlanta (Georgia), Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania) and several of the cities in the Capital District of New York. I'm married with four children (two girls, two boys). Currently, in addition to being an SF/F writer, I'm the R&D Coordinator for International Electronic Machines, with a focus on smart sensor systems.

I've been writing since I was very young, but didn't get published until 2003; my work ranges from urban fantasy (Digital Knight) to space opera (Grand Central Arena), hard science fiction (the Boundary trilogy), and epic fantasy (Phoenix Rising), all published by Baen Books. I am also a long-time RPG gamer (since 1977) and a very long-term science fiction and fantasy fan.

Katherine Starbird

Katherine Starbird is a fantasy author of fiction, born and raised in coastal Florida. Her stories spring from her life-long fascination with religious and mystical beliefs, folk tales, legends, and romanticism.

Kate spent much of her childhood on and around the water. On the flats off Pinellas Point in her hometown of St. Petersburg, she collected shells and hunted sea critters. On vacations and weekends, the family sailed their yawl in Tampa Bay and to far off destinations. Adventuring on the water gave Kate ample time to dream up fantastical stories. Not surprisingly, many were about young people and the ocean.

Today, Kate lives with her husband and children in Longwood, Florida. She still enjoys dreaming up stories. Now she writes them into novels so others can join her adventure.

Susan Stuckey

Susan was born in a small country hospital and was raised on a farm. She grew up around cats, dogs (coon hounds), cows, pigs, chickens, ducks, etc. The family home was surrounded by gardens (vegetable), orchards, cornfields, wheat fields, creeks, and woods. The closest neighbor, as the crow flies, was over a mile away.

Susan graduated from college multiple times with different degrees and enough credit hours for even more degrees.

Stacey Thompson-Geer

I'm an author and a mom. What more is there to life? I have been writing for many years. I started in horror and dark fantasy, but enjoy writing in all genres.

Xina Marie Uhl

An Arizona native, I currently live in sunny Southern California with my husband and a minor menagerie of dogs, cats, birds, and aquatic creatures. I’ve held a number of wildly different jobs in my life, from accounting clerk to history instructor, but writing has been something I’ve always done. My fiction is available through XC, and includes the fantasy adventures Necropolis, The Gauntlet Thrown and The Challenge Accepted, Books One and Two of the Gauntlet Trilogy.

James L. Wilber

James L. Wilber describes himself as Anne Rice and Chuck Palahniuk's bastard love child. He's a pretentious prick who claims to pen, "literary genre fiction." Which means he writes smarmy stories about wizards and vampires doing a poor job at hiding his symbolism and metaphor. He's turned to self-publishing on the correct assumption his stories are just too weird for mass consumption.

He has contributed to numerous books for roleplaying games from companies such as: Wizards of the Coast, Paizo Publishing, White Wolf Studios, Bastion Press, and Atlas Games. He was also a writer on the Origins Award nominated, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Roleplaying Game by Eden Studios.

Mr. Wilber also assumes the roles of husband, ceremonial magician, podcast host, and owner of a 100-lb Alaskan Malamute.

Roland Yeomans

Dreamer. Writer. Believer in the worth of each soul I meet. It is not so bad a thing to have been born with the gift of laughter and the knowledge that the world is mad.
