Who We Are

Meet Carrie
(Women's/Contemporary Fiction)

Website | Facebook | Twitter | Goodreads

I’m an engineer, turned marketing professional, turned writer. Add all this up and I’ve given myself the unique title of Literary Engineer. I like to think of my novels as stories I’ve ‘engineered’ for the enjoyment and entertainment of others. That’s what writing means to me—creating experiences where readers can connect with characters, get lost in a story, and hopefully find a piece of themselves somewhere in the words they have read. When I’m not writing, I’m spending time with my husband and daughter or reading.To close this out, I’ll give you 20 seconds of random facts: I’ve jumped out of a plane 4 times, I love chocolate, I have a cat who’s been medically diagnosed as weird, I have to watch the movie version of every book I read, pajamas are my favorite thing to wear, I love chocolate, I’m obsessed with buying watches, Colorado is my favorite place to visit, I think P!nk is amazing, I enjoy doing puzzles, I have strange food aversions, I’m horrible at spelling things correctly, did I mention that I love chocolate?

Meet Mary

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 Abigail
(Resident Reader)


Abigail Isaacoff was born in the wagon of a traveling show and raised in the woods outside of Philadelphia.  She went on to drop out of law school and birth a weird amount of children.  She is now a full-time dilettante in New Orleans and can give you a ghost tour of the French Quarter if you ask nicely.  Just don't ask her to drive a mule carriage because she tried that and it didn't work out too well.

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 originally from upstate New York, but now lives in a tiny village in Northwest England after stops in New York City, Tokyo and London. She's lived in the UK long enough to gain dual citizenship, but still insists on still spelling things the American way and regularly questions whether tea is better with or without sugar. Brenda writes romance -- everything from YA to adult contemporary. When she's not writing, Brenda likes running (okay, it's really more of a jog and the "like" part is variable!) and cooking. She thinks her ten-year-old son has a pretty great sense of humor, which probably tells you everything you need to know about her own. Brenda's New Adult romance, SWIMMING TO TOKYO is available now and her adult contemporary romantic suspense LIES WE LIVE is out June 22, 2015.
