Travel junkie, legend lover, idea wrangler, I'm an award-winning author who grew up among rich storytelling traditions in my native Ireland, land of make-believe and the original little green man. In my spare time I retreat to rural Idaho to hike, bike and boat, but mostly to eavesdrop on mountain men and prepare for the apocalypse. If you like dystopian sagas, gritty heroines, and twists you won’t see coming, then you’ll love my Pretty Gritty YA turbo-paced thrill-rides!
Melanie Karsak is the author of The Airship Racing Chronicles, The Harvesting Series, and The Celtic Blood Series. A steampunk connoisseur, zombie whisperer, and heir to the iron throne, the author currently lives in Florida with her husband and two children. She is an Instructor of English at Eastern Florida State College.
I live in Northern California with my husband, two dogs, a garden, lots of chickens, a viola, and a bicycle. Action Adventure, Survival Stories, Apocalypse, Horror, Science Fiction, Fantasy...I love to read it and write it. My books take place halfway around the world, in an apocalyptic future, in a parallel universe—they don’t always stick to one genre, but they always take the reader on a dark adventure.

E.E. Isherwood has been a storyteller for over 30 years. As a young teen he would create elaborate imaginary worlds as a Dungeon Master for many Dungeons and Dragons adventures. He kept them all in spiral-bound notebooks. His wife often wondered why those bins of notebooks kept following her from house to house. He began to wonder about that too. But three decades and several careers later he realized they were stories, and he could put those storytelling skills to good use again by writing books. A life-long enthusiast of apocalyptic fiction, writing about zombies was his first passion. He has other book ideas based on those old notebooks. He lives in the St. Louis, Missouri area, where his series of zombie books takes place.
I am a part time writer but try to complete 2-3 novels a year. I'm currently working on a space opera series and have outlines for a supernatural horror series, a Western horror series, a futurist cyber-punk series, a comedic fantasy series, and a series in the Destroyer universe that will take place a few months after the end of book 4. I own an advertising business and I am partner/founder of a small software company that produces EMR tracking for agencies that work with individuals with developmental disabilities. When I am not working or writing I enjoy cycling (road and mountain), guitar/bass guitar playing, esoteric music, reading, exercising, and spending time with my family.

When Nirina was seven, she wanted to grow up to be a ballet dancing nun by day and crime-fighting vigilante by night...using ballet. A lot has changed since then, except for her silly day-dreams. Nowadays, she imagines being a super-spy android assassin living on a Mars-like planet in a different universe. But since that's unlikely, she's writing about it instead. Stay tuned for the new series, Petra, coming in 2017. Nirina lives in Sydney, Australia with her family and their crazy tortie kitten (who was almost named Petra...).
Gwynn Roberts White
I’m a New York Times bestselling author of epic steampunk fantasy novels set on distant planets. All my stories have an adventure at the heart, mixed with a liberal sprinkling of romance and intrigue. To confuse things, I also write adventure travel books set firmly on planet Earth. Weird, I know, but it makes me tick. When I’m not writing, I’m reading, traveling, herding kids around, taking dogs for walks, and avoiding all cooking.
Books hold a special place in my heart, so I write the kinds of books I want to read—character-driven, always with a love story, in my favorite genres of science fiction, fantasy, and romance. I have a supportive husband and four great kids. We live in Southern California, right next door to my parents and down the street from my adorable nephew. Family is at the top of my priority list. And then comes you, my readers. I wouldn't have a job I love without you.

I look at the night skies, at the stars and planets, and I dream of what will someday be humanity’s home. I imagine a future where we have stretched out into the stars, discovering new worlds, and new beauty. These dreams have come to life in the series of books coming to life in the world of Aeon 14.
When I began writing about a distant future—in the 42nd century—a woman named Tanis showed up. Her strength and drive took over my stories and I couldn’t help but write about her. Tanis lives in a future where there is no faster than light travel and no teleporters. However, humans have created structures as large as moons, and have shifted planets. They share their minds with AI and talk to one another almost telepathically.
Yet they are still human, they still laugh, and tell tall tales, and love one another.
I'm a book lover that is also obsessed with writing. Primarily writing Young and New Adult science fiction, you can guarantee there always some romance involved too. Living on the Gold Coast in sunny Queensland, Australia, my dog Claude is always at my side and a huge distraction.
Felix R. Savage
Hey, fellow sci-fi nuts! I'm just your average reader who couldn't find enough great science fiction, so I turned to writing it myself. I live in Tokyo and I spend my days at an office participating, with poorly concealed ambivalence, in the preparations for our planet to be taken over by robots. I'm actually quite optimistic and I love telling stories about the future, because no matter how much technology changes, human beings never do! Even more than that, I love sharing these stories with readers, and that is why I'm offering you a FREE book.
