Born in South-East London, I was a power cut baby of the early 70s. I’d wanted to write stories ever since I read ‘Salem’s Lot by Stephen King and Flowers in the Attic by Virginia Andrews when I was around 11 years old, but life had other ideas for me. Circumstances led me to leave school when I turned 15 to start labouring and painting. I remained in the construction industry for many years after, learning various trades. Writing looked as though it had become one of those faded dreams that would fail to materialise, but like many thoughts planted in our minds by our younger selves, it never went away. It was a long ride and wait with plenty of obstacles to overcome along the way. My debut novel took me two and a half years of writing, rewriting, and editing. I hope you’ll join me on a journey that will lead wherever my mind decides to take us.

A contemporary romance set in the heady world of the 1980’s music industry, All Tomorrow’s Parties has received many a rave review and been described as Chicklit with a twist.

Jonah Gibson grew up in a one stoplight town in Western Ohio. Nestled among soy bean fields and overrun with turkey flocks, it had six churches, six taverns, and six gas stations. Jonah got his moral sensibilities in one of the churches, and developed his quirky lens for social observation in the taverns—all six of ’em. Then he gassed up and left town. There are those who think he had to leave town, but there is no real evidence to support this theory. He still looks back fondly.
Jonah currently resides on Florida’s Treasure Coast with his wife and a retired racing greyhound named Bean. He writes mostly comedic thrillers, posts funny blog entries, and tries generally to escape the ‘slings and arrows of outrageous fortune’ with as many naps as Bean will allow.

East of the Out-Lands takes us to twentieth-third-century Southern California where oppressed desert dwellers struggle for survival against a brutal coastal dictatorship.
I’m both a writer and playwright. I love the art of storytelling. Be it love and despair; or hate and violence! Having read hundreds of novels from such greats as Stephen King, James Herbert, James Patterson I’ve always loved a good character driven thriller and I have learned much. From the dramatic exchange of characters to dark and twisted circumstances they find themselves in. Endings are very important to me too! I’ll never rush an ending as I thrive on taking people on a satisfying journey they’ll remember, over and over again! I’m a reader, just like you and I relish in the satisfaction of a good story. I hope you enjoy my work.
BJ Hyman was born in Nashville, TN to Joe and Betty Story (yes, her maiden name is Betty Jo Story…how’s that for someone born to write?).
She was first published as the winner of a poetry contest in her local paper in Effingham, IL at the age of 10 and the writing bug never left her. Since then she has had poetry and one short story published in varying anthologies.
She got a B.A. in Theater and studied Music in college because the arts and storytelling have always called to her. She worked in television and radio for over 7 years before spending another 7 as a school teacher of Music and Theater.
She’s written 5 full-length screenplays, one play, and over 25 hour long episodic scripts for television. Day Zero was her first novel.
She currently lives in Columbus, MS with her Commercial Producer husband, Jim, two loving dogs (Wrigley and Sunny) and a 19 year old turtle named Melville.

I am many things. A man. A soldier. Trained to kill. Born to hunt. Focused and lethal, nothing gets through the stoic control that hides my inner animal. An animal that simmers with rage and power. And that power makes me the perfect assassin. Then….. SHE invades my world. Charlotte – petite, beautiful and sexy as hell. A cop who claims a past with me that I don’t remember. At all. A dangerous distraction. My beast is captivated but suspicious, torn between wanting to sink teeth into her and…….wanting to sink teeth into her. My body craves her. But….. I don’t remember her. I don’t trust her. And I don’t trust myself around her. Who is she? Is she lying? And do I have enough control to not be blinded by her? To protect my secrets and uncover hers? And who pays the price?
The love of a good story is the reason Zelly Jordan says she had her nose in a book most of the time growing up. Escaping into a world of great love, great adventures and sexy-smexy fun times with drool-worthy heroes and feisty strong women was the highlight of every day. A lover of good coffee, cats and a good chat, with the occasional glass of wine, she lives in the most livable city in the world, Melbourne Australia with her almost grown son. Divorced and happily single, Zelly realised the danger she was facing in becoming the crazy cat lady and it was this fear, together with her love of a particular television show that lead her to give writing “a go”. She let the world in on her attempts as she went along and put it out there on the www for the world to see, if they chose. Surprisingly, they did and this is the result – her debut novel. A perfect example of what can happen if you just try. When she’s not writing or researching, she likes to spend time having a laugh with friends, watching good movies or shows and delving into the lovely world of Angels, crystals and healing. All with the added magic of music and a good espresso.

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.

Malkeeya is a sociopathic biracial beauty who believes it’s her mission in life to end ethnic division and bring enlightenment to the western world through her cult, COSMIC LOVE. If she lines her pockets along the way, well, she never took a vow of poverty, did she? And if outsiders mistake her sacred ceremonial rites for sexual exploitation, says Malkeeya, that’s just the projection of their own dirty little minds. Malkeeya’s inner circle of followers live communally in “clusters,” tithing everything they own, handing over their children to her teachings and ceding control over their own lives in the belief that they’ll find love and serenity. Although her right-hand man, Paul, initially rebels when he witnesses the psychic unraveling of her first victim, he dismisses his doubts as he, too, continues to be mesmerized by the fascinating Malkeeya. Hang on as COSMIC LOVE hurtles toward a shocking climax!

Fifteen-year-old Morgan is nothing more than an empty shell. She is surrounded by uncaring psychiatrists who’d rather be anywhere else but with her, and is bullied at school because of her wealth and status. She remains isolated from it all, never once giving a thought to friendship, or even love. This all changes when she meets a strange boy named Lucas. From his fickle, humorless jokes, to his cocky grin, to his pure, untainted eyes, Morgan can’t help but wonder if he’s just as unstable as she is, if not more. Over time, the two grow closer and eventually, they fall in love. But memories have a funny way of dragging you below the thin line of insanity. And in the end, they serve as a sentence Morgan could neither hide nor run from.

Lycanthrope Rising: The True Story behind the Werewolf-Vampire Wars, Book 2 in the Toronto Vampire Chronicles but absolutely a stand-alone novel
The horror thriller follows the events in Late Bite, Book I in the series, unveiling through different perspectives the lead up and arrest of Dragul Mangorian, the sole surviving member of a human subspecies named the Homo Sanguinus. The arrest of what the media calls ‘a real vampire’ creates a sensation globally but in Toronto, a city that prides itself for promoting diversity, there’s no talk of a stake in heart. Instead, he’s given a lawyer and a phalanx of supporters line up to ensure his human rights are protected. All this lovey dove treatment pisses off an ancient and terrifying enemy, The Lycanthrope Clan. The Lycans are a special breed of humans whose mastery of technology, animalistic ferocity and alliance with wolves saved mankind from enslavement by the Sanguinus 30,000 years ago. After the Lycans learned of the Sanguinus’ secret vulnerability, they eradicated their enemy and believed them extinct until Mangorian’s arrest. The problem facing the Lycans is, they’ve been fat cats for generations and now have to get their mean up to speed. Mangorian meanwhile has cozied up to government scientists who want to unlock secrets in his genome. He’s 208 years old and is immune to cancer and blood borne pathogens. In exchange, the scientists give Mangorian fertility support to help him revive his species with Skyla, a woman whose physiology makes her a one in a billion match to bear his children. The rich and powerful Lycans recruit former playboy Tim Gracey and his stripper girlfriend Rita to lead murderous forces that will stop at nothing to keep Mangorian and Sklya from mating. Notes: Some of the events of the first novel Late Bite are repeated in this novel but are through the eyes of others to provide an entirely different take, sort of like the classic Japanese film Rashomon that tells the same story three times, each taking the same events but creating a different story.

When I turned 50, two years ago, I wanted to do something crazy. Since I did a lot of dog rescue, I thought I would write a short story about that. It’s true everyone has a story to tell!

I am currently working on the third book in an adult crime thriller, with a young woman who turns vigilante against animal abusers.
Drip: A Gothic Bromance
“A hand wearing a fancy watch parted the office blinds, and J.D. felt nauseous with despair: suddenly he knew—even though he could not explain how—that all of his mojo had been permanently taken away.”
J.D. and George: thick as thieves since the fourth grade. J.D., the troublemaker, the stud: the alpha. George, the sidekick, the misfit: the loser. Upon graduating college, J.D. has convinced the only job creator in rusty Middlestop to hire them. BrewCorp, the hot new coffee and retail chain, is offering a vice presidency to the employee with the boldest plan for growth, and J.D. is determined to be the guy. When not sleeping with co-workers, he hatches his pitch for a one-of-a kind data pipeline. He is unbeatable–until George grabs the promotion. Now J.D. wants answers. His quest to find them—and to deal with the monstrous truth—is the subject of indie filmmaker Andrew Montlack’s wry debut novel, which features the same biting satire that made his mockumentary, The Devil’s Filmmaker, a cult classic.

Hi, I’m Tim Rees. My background is BBC drama and before that the military. You can read about my life in the army in my memoir, In Sights: The Story Of A Welsh Guardsman, published by The History Press in 2013.
I left the BBC to focus on writing my own scripts and ended up writing the novel first so my story is set firmly on the page – my experience with the BBC taught me scripts are rewritten and change from the original script due to budgets, director’s idea’s and perspectives and then the actors come in with their own ideas on the character they’re playing. Making a film is an intensely creative process and it is a process I love, but after finishing my first novel, which is Raw Nerve, I knew I’d been born to be a novelist first and foremost, mainly because the creative intensity is doubled and my relationship with the characters is so much more real than working on a script where it’s necessary to leave it to the director and actors to flesh-out character.
I realised indie publishing is now at a professional standard and want to be a part of this new revolution. So now I’ve recently republished Raw Nerve to add to Delphian and WTF.

Longtime detective Stanford Carter and his wife, forensic scientist Jill Seacrest, have always felt one was the yin to the other’s yang. Carter is formal, logical, detached and incredibly reserved. As team leader, he displays an unflagging commitment to duty, a keen sense of logic and strategy, and the poker face of a true champion. Despite his ardent desire to learn the secrets of the universe and its plan for us all, the introspective student of Zen demonstrates an extraordinary inability to understand himself or anyone else. Seacrest, on the other hand, is a scientific steamroller, often intimidating even the most seasoned veteran agents. Possessing a strong and fiery personality, her determination to find the truth often clashes with a quick and sarcastic wit, a fiery personality, and the tendency to leap before she looks. Together, they’ve made the tough decision to leave their home town of Boston to move to the Big Apple, where they have accepted new positions with the F.B.I. to help solve a string of murders. When Shania Deeprose joins the team, the overly enthusiastic, down-to-earth rookie from Alabama provides a spark that forges the immediate and unbreakable bonds of heart, mind, and courage.

Will they be able to expose a secret so old and far reaching that it has already begun to impact the very fabric of society?

Howard D Weiner
Howard Weiner is a recent addition to the literary genre of fiction. Writing mysteries, thrillers, crimes—with a touch of romance—an approach described by one reader as “one bubble off.” Many authors sharing the genre have characters whose fortune is determined by others. They literally have dodged the bullet that otherwise would have killed them. Weiner’s characters make their own fortune—good or bad—and they live with the results. Weiner’s own experiences are blessed with no small number of noteworthy characters and events. He brings these slightly off-kilter individuals to life, complete with their own stories and dramas. Like the child prodigy in his first novel, “It Is Las Vegas After All”, who comes to the starting edge of adulthood and then loses the approval of his doting parents, the sponsorship of one of America’s great institutions of higher education, and gains the enmity of his girlfriend’s father—an international arms dealer—to become a home-grown terrorist operating on U.S. soil. A survivor of rich, nuanced bureaucracies in the public and private sector, Weiner writes about characters whose career choices and decisions are morally questionable. A student of personal behavior in complex circumstances, Weiner brings these often cringe-worthy characters to life. Some are amoral, others immoral in a narrow slice of their lives, yet they otherwise look and act like people we all know from work or even childhood. Like one of the female leads in his novel, “Serendipity Opportunity”, an out-of-the-box thinker who flunks most of life’s basic relationship tests, yet she is someone you never want pursuing you in the cause of justice. There’s a former foreign security official who uses his protected status as a witness for federal prosecutors to provide cover for his own mayhem and murder in Weiner’s third novel, “Bad Money”. Many of Weiner’s stories are born out of real life events: The mix-up in luggage claim at the airport in, “Bad Money”, the chronic high school slacker in “Serendipity Opportunity” whose one stroke of good fortune creates his opportunity to perpetrate a complex series of frauds, or the brilliant student in “It Is Las Vegas After All” who uses his prodigious talents toward an evil end. As a former federal official, Weiner can neither confirm nor deny having the highest security clearances in classified security programs. Yet, his knowledge of the dark web, criminal organizations, and security organizations takes stories from the popular press to the next level.
