About Me

 

Billy Ray Chitwood, a hill boy from Tennessee, came out of Appalachia and into an adult world that added to the confusion of a transient life he left behind. Behind him, there were the sad disconnect with a broken family, bad economic times, much mobility, and so many mixed emotions that confounded the youth. Ahead, the adult world was a maze of neon glitter, gin mills, pretty ladies, and so much to absorb. It would be accurate and honest were it said that the author ate some emotional soup in his childhood and has spent a lifetime trying to digest it.

 

Through the years, the author has made his mistakes, taken his risks, and has been forever searching for some elusive ’white buffalo’ that could make sense of his wanderlust life. These elements are there in the books he has authored, in the characters, in the action and scenes portrayed, and in the musing quality of his narrative style. These elements can be heard in the songs he has written. He has had despair and sorrow. He has had great moments of joy and happiness. His life is likely not so different from everyman.

 

He has proudly and honorably served his country in the United States Navy. He made it to college graduation with a BA degree in English. He taught high school ‘Advanced Writing’ and subsequently worked for some major textbook publishers. He has owned and run a business. He has acted in film, stage, television, and has been a model. He has lived in California and Arizona for the major part of his adult life.

 

He currently resides on the Sea of Cortez where he writes his books, enjoys the soft blue sky and constant sun. He sips and sits and muses as he gazes out upon the sailboats, jet skis, and yachts that dot the cobalt waters all the way out to the horizon where the sky meets the sea. With him is a cherished wife named Julie Anne and a Bengal cat named George, a feisty fur-ball full of love.

About Me

I have been a teacher in the Maryland school district for the last twenty years. Over the last few years, I have begun to pursue my other passion, storytelling, using different forms of media. Besides writing short stories and film scripts, I have  made a few documentaries, one of which has been shown at the DC South Asian Film Festival. Recently, I published my first work of fiction, Rani of Rampur, on Amazon Kindle.

About Me

I compose poetry and fiction, have had 3 short stories published as contest winners, and am slogging through revisions on my first novel. Living in the Pacific Northwest suits my muse just fine. I enjoy the rain, cloudy days, variety of terrain and wonderful people living here.

About Me

I am a long time writer, living in semi retirement surrounded by my favourite books. So far I have four published novel length works - three are science fiction. My latest "Globular Van der Graff's Goblin Tales for Adults" is my fourth, and my first venture into fantasy. I am also a long time blogger. Bejuss is the name of an endearing character in Glob's tales. He is a one eyed lisping raven with a twisted beak.

About Me

I am a voracious reader of paranormal romance and light science fiction. Though I don’t mind dropping the occasional horror story into the bucket my main interests tend to fall toward romance or even a good tear-jerker. If someone has a novel that falls into one of these categories and you are in need of a review, feel free to contact me and if it works out I’m happy to add you to my list. My reviews can be viewed at my blog, Amazon, Goodreads and Smashword. I’ve spent most of my life breaking, training and riding horses in dressage. I’ve also enjoyed teaching students how to enjoy their horses, make a partnership out of it no matter what discipline they end up following. When I retired from training I needed another outlet and decided to take up writing. I spent years studying, going back to school, joining online critique sites, becoming an active member in all phases of writing a novel. I’m very excited to tell you that I just had my first novel, a science fiction romance, picked up by Crescent Moon Press-- crescentmoonpress.com/. There should be a release date set sometime in 2012. If you want to learn more about me and the things I cherish in life, you can visit me at dennaholm.wordpress.com/ I’d love to have you stop by.

About Me

Hello! I am speculative author Nora Weston. My fiction and poetry slips in-between and all around science fiction, fantasy, and horror. Frequently, my characters find themselves in frightening situations. Reality is then turned upside down and placed in the middle of a supernatural event. I use these extraordinary situations to explore human nature since some of my characters rise to the occasion, stay focused, and beat the odds--other characters consistently make decisions that lead them into a bleak reality. www.2noraweston.com

About Me

D.M. Cherubim was born in Duluth, Minnesota, a twin city on the shores of the mighty Lake Superior. Cherubim was an award-winning political, government and environmental journalist for two decades. Cherubim's stories ranged from interviews with U.S. presidents to Disneyland tourists dressed like Mickey Mouse. In 2003, she became very ill. In 2005, after “redlining” in a hospital bed, she had an experience of God in a bright light. When she returned to her body, she felt a new purpose for being here. Doctors at the time gave Cherubim less than three months to live. Since then, Cherubim has had a miraculous recovery. Now that she can walk and talk again, Cherubim has been working on her books from some of the most inspiring and spiritual places in the world, including southern California, Hawaii, and now, south Florida.
