Stacey Bryan https://staceyebryan.wordpress.com Stacey enjoys the thought of vampires and aliens but has yet to see any in the flesh. It doesn't stop her from writing about them, though, or other unrelated paranormal beings. She received a BA in English lit. from UCLA, much to the horror of everyone around her, and then attempted to find a relatable job. After stints at resume writing, proof-reading, classified ads in a newspaper, deviations as dental assistant, gymnastics coach, and working at a dude ranch in Wyoming, she settled into captioning for the hearing impaired. She was raised in Los Angeles, found her husband in New York City and now lives with him in Burbank where she's working on the sequel to her novel Day for Night, various short stories, and the adaptation of a sci-fi screenplay to novelization and hopefully a graphic novel one day.

Anna Erishkigal http://www.Anna-Erishkigal.com Anna Erishkigal is a recovering attorney who writes fantasy fiction under a pen-name so her colleagues don't question whether her legal pleadings are fantasy fiction as well. Much of law, it turns out, -is- fantasy fiction. Lawyers just prefer to call it 'zealously representing your client.' Seeing the dark underbelly of life makes for some interesting fictional characters. The kind you either want to incarcerate, or run home and write about. In fiction, you can fudge facts without worrying too much about the truth. In legal pleadings, if your client lies to you, you look stupid in front of the judge. At least in fiction, if a character becomes troublesome, you can always kill them off. Yes

Jayne Fury http://www.jaynefury.com I was born in suburban NY, I moved West because I’m claustrophobic. I’m left handed, I reckoned the left coast would work out. I’ve lived out here since I finished uni where I studied modern language to be a teacher. I did a year in Italy for that at the American University of Rome. I first moved to the desert Southwest which was lovely but hot. Damn hot. Now I’m in the damp and temperate Pacific Northwest where I hike whenever I can and keep chickens on my little urban “farm”. I’m a graphic designer by trade and do all of my own book covers. Factoids: I had a lunar lander on my 7th birthday cake because the men had walked on the moon only the day before… for the first time. This Christmas my grown children got me Star Trek admiral pips. TNG, in case you were wondering. I have a strong sense of whimsy reflected by the Star Trek garden gnomes that sit on my desk reminding me to write or die. The gnome Gorn is especially convincing. I have an obsession with colored pens. I was once a personal chef. I blog as often as I can about women and archetypes in a series called Femme Friday (jaynefury.com) and invite other authors to guest and talk about their strong female characters. Check us out on Fridays at the blog. In 2013 I walked from Léon to Santiago de Campostela, Spain. I did it again in the Spring of 2015 and walked from St Jean Pied de Port, France back to Santiago. It’s a long walk along the ancient pilgrimage trail of St James. I have been gathering materials for a historical romance series set along The Way. Also, it’s a great excuse to eat jamon and cheese all day and not gain weight. No

Gabrielle Mathieu http://gabriellemathieu.com Gabrielle Mathieu lived on three continents by the age of eight.
