Tragedy… heartache… how much more can Tyler Montgomery and John Webster take? This missions trip, the “healing” one, has only added fresh layers of pain. Construction of an orphanage in Haiti’s northwest… yes. But a doomed rescue operation, human traffickers, human anomalies, extreme personal danger… risk of death? They hadn’t signed up for those.
Born and raised on a farm near Brockville, Ontario, Mark Bierman’s childhood consisted of chores, riding horses, snowmobile races across open fields, fishing trips to a local lake, and many other outdoor adventures. He was also an avid reader of both fiction and non. Transitioning towards adulthood also meant moving from the farm and into large urban areas that introduced this “country boy” to life in the big cities. Drawing on his many experiences as a private investigator and later a Correctional Officer, Mark combines his unique experiences and imagination to create his stories and characters.

Andrea J Britnell is an independent author living in West Sussex, England. As a reader, Andrea has a broad taste in literature but when she came to write her debut novel, her love of science fiction and real science led to the creation of EVAC Ignition. “EVAC Ignition is a near future, fast paced, space adventure, exploring the impact of our commercial ventures as we finally colonize the Moon and beyond. I’m always fascinated by the little things in a sci-fi film or documentary, the down to earth, gritty bits of space life the really tell the story. I hope I’m around when the first tourists take a trip to the stars, maybe I’ll even get a chance to see the Earth from space.”

Travelling, learning new languages and cultures are my passions. Those passions and my love of adventure are the key elements that inspire me to write my novels which I publish under a pen name J.A. Kalis. The way I write, I want to pull the reader into the story, suck them right into the world I have created, make them experience the adventure, the danger, the action but also the beauty of the unique, often exotic, locations where all the action takes place, and learn something new about the people who live there. So if that’s what you are looking for in a novel, try one of mine.
I’ve been writing seriously since I was 15 and publishing my own work since 2012. I started with ‘zines and the moved on to do a pulp fiction action adventure crime novel series called The Bartender. The books take the titular character and explore a world of genres. I have another series called Lazlo, which follows the exploits of globe trotting super operative Lazlo. I’ve finally built a body of work that I feel comfortable presenting to the world so check it out!
