Who We Are

Meet Carrie
(Mainstream Fiction)
Website | Facebook | Twitter | Goodreads

Carrie Beckort’s unexpected life as a writer began in 2014 when she self-published her first novel, Kingston’s Project. She writes about emotionally difficult circumstances that are true to life. Carrie is a lifelong Indiana resident, but she prefers to be called a Boiler rather than a Hoosier.

Carrie would like to tell you that when she’s not writing she’s reading, but really she’s busy tackling one of her life’s many distractions. She does get to hang out with her husband and daughter often, so she really can’t complain. Oh, and her cat too. Can’t forget about the cat. Wait, and now there's a dog. Where'd she come from?

Meet Mary

 Website | Blog Twitter | Facebook | Goodreads Tumblr

I write things. Things with spaceships, spells, monsters, and mayhem. Like the Jane Colt Trilogy (sci-fi), the Flynn Nightsider series (YA dystopia/fantasy), and the Fated Stars series (YA high fantasy). Lifelong nerd, incurable daydreamer, shameless font aficionado. I stand for diversity in books and more girls in STEM. Didn't see enough of the latter in sci-fi so I co-published an anthology filled with them (Brave New Girls: Tales of Girls and Gadgets). I aim to entertain.

Meet Kimberly

Kimberly G. Giarratano is a former ESL teacher and YA librarian. She lives in the Poconos with her husband and three kids. When Kimberly is not writing, you can find her corralling a toddler, baking cookies, and trying to convince her husband to get a dog. Kimberly is a 90s chick at heart and is planning a New Adult mystery series set in the late 90s. She'd love to hear from you.

Meet Gabino
(Horror, Noir)

Gabino Iglesias
Twitter | Goodreads

Gabino Iglesias is a writer, editor, journalist, and book reviewer living in Austin, Texas. When not writing or reading, he has worked as a dog whisperer, witty communications professor, and ballerina assassin. He's currently working on overcoming his crippling hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia.

Meet Stephen

Stephen Kozeniewski is the author of bestselling horror novels BRAINEATER JONES and THE GHOUL ARCHIPELAGO, and was a contributor to the #1 bestselling charity horror anthology AT HELL'S GATES. He also wrote BILLY AND THE CLONEASAURUS, and really hopes that a few folks will hop on the bandwagon there so he can just start saying "author of three bestselling novels." His father once came very close to opening for Jeffrey Tambor at an open mic night. Everyone's life, of course, is littered with missed opportunities. May yours not be picking up a copy of BILLY AND THE CLONEASAURUS right now.

Meet Cheryl
(Lifestyle, Middle-Age, Family, Humor)

Blog | Facebook | Twitter | Pinterest

I'm the one who took the well trodden path, skipping merrily along, until I got lost. I married after college, had a gaggle of kids, survived thirty-three years of wedded bliss (still going strong), and four rounds of puberty, when I thought teaching high school would be a good idea. Good is a relative term, but despite the grey hair, it has been a extraordinary adventure. I thought it would be good for my soul to reflect on my experiences and to everyone's horror I started writing, which turned into a blog, and maybe a book. It happens. I'm loving this stage of life, looking forward to the less traveled path, and that should make all the difference. Come walk with me as I saunter though middle age and horrify the family.

Meet Jonathan

Twitter | Goodreads

Jonathan grew up in small town Ohio, where he spent his childhood climbing water towers, crick walkin’ and getting into non-misdemeanor type trouble (no, he doesn’t mean felony type trouble, and no, he did not write this from prison). He married his college sweetheart and lives with a cat he's pretty sure is out to get him and a dog who is either too scared or too stupid to care. When he's not pecking away at ye ol' keyboard, he can be found working his day job at a university in Indiana.

Meet Brenda

Brenda is a displaced New Yorker living in the English countryside. She’s lived in the UK long enough to gain dual citizenship but still doesn’t understand Celsius. However, she has learned the appropriate use of the word “pants”. And how to order a proper bacon bap/barm/buttie. Because, well, bacon.

Brenda writes contemporary romance to make you giggle and swoon. When she’s not writing, she enjoys hiking, running and reading. In theory, she also enjoys cooking, but it’s more that she enjoys eating and, try as she might, she can’t live on Doritos alone.
