Time After Time
C.L. Cannon is a publisher, publicist, editor, author, designer, and lots of other occupations with the -er sound at the end!
She enjoys writing about love and friendship. She loves it even more when she can add fantasy and science fiction aspects to those themes!
She is a self-proclaimed Potterhead (Slytherin pride people!) who spends her days trying to #bookstagram (and probably failing), helping other authors grow and succeed (I love my job), and loving on her 2 babes (velociraptors).
Bounty Hunter and the Beast
When she isn’t visiting the worlds of immortals, demons, dragons and goblins, Brantwijn fills her time with artistic endeavors: sketching, painting, and working on graphic design. She can’t handle coffee unless there’s enough cream and sugar to make it a milkshake, but try and sweeten her tea and she will never forgive you. She moonlights as a futon for four lazy cats, loves tabletop role-play games, and can spend hours penciling naughty, sexy illustrations in her secret notebooks.
The Wrong Witch
Bestselling and award-winning author Jennifer Ellision writes about daring young women in magical worlds. She survives on a steady diet of books, podcasts, and her favorite magical tropes. Jennifer frequently wakes up early to work before she has to “people” and can often be found squirreled away in her office, getting some writing done–or in her local library, agonizing over revisions.
If all else fails, look under the covers. She’s probably hiding out with a good young adult fantasy series.
Leave our world and escape into one of hers.
Spade: The Fortuna Saga, Book One
S.A. McClure is an avid lover of all things fantasy. A self-proclaimed nerd, S.A. enjoys attending comic cons, seeing new movies, and discussing books with friends.

Shannon Pemrick is a full-time writer, and fuller-time geek and dragon obsessed. She also has too many novelty mugs, not enough chocolate, and a forbidden love-affair with all things shiny.
Shannon resides in Southern New Hampshire with her overly sarcastic husband and one too many pets who steal all her bed space. When she’s not burning her fingers across a keyboard or trying to squeeze into a spot on the couch for movie night, she’s rolling dice and getting lost in RPGs or searching for brides for her dragon overlords.
Suzanne Hagelin has lived as varied and interesting a life as she could manage—growing up in Mexico City, living in the Middle East, traveling and exploring the world, learning languages, working in IT, family, exchange students, teaching, volunteering, and translating. She settled in the Seattle area where she runs an indie publishing company, Varida P&R, with a small group of authors, and teaches language on the side.
Co-author Candace Segar grew up in New Orleans and at the age of six months went to her first Mardi Gras. By five, she was a seasoned veteran and could catch beads and doubloons with the best of them. After graduating twice from the University of New Orleans because she couldn’t figure out if she wanted to write or test motors, she opted for the power industry. It readily paid the bills. Apparently though, her passion to write science fiction never went away. When she isn’t researching or writing, Candace enjoys working on construction projects with her husband and swimming on a masters swim team.

Tamsin Baker loves everything erotic. Her books can be long, short and everything in between, but they’ll all be fast paced with snappy dialogue and lots of sex. No Tamsin Baker book is the same except there won’t be a lot of angst in as she wants her books to be everything that a fictional world can be- full of happy ever afters, dirty words and sweet love. ‘Love is love’ and she tries to show that in a range of sub genres, from m/m contemporary to paranormal ménage. She has a need to shock people and bring up embarrassing topics at the most inappropriate times.

Why waste a perfectly good playground coloring within the timelines? Accordingly, her novels are filled with whimsical impossibilities and the occasional eye-blinking impertinence–but always in the service of grand adventure.
Struggling between the practical and the artistic–a family tradition, along with ghosts and a belief in the curative powers of shortbread–Emma Jane has a degree in literature and job in finance.

Rae Hendricks has been writing ever since she could hold a pencil.
Beginning as a way to cull her boredom and express her emotions, Rae turned to poetry and short stories at an early age and found that she loved to weave new worlds with her words. Creative Writing, Theatre, and English educators only added to her love for writing, and she found herself winning many contests as a teen and knew for sure that being an author was somewhere in her future.
After a long career of writing for others, she decided it was time to share her own stories with the world, and now she is happy to be writing in a genre she has been passionate about ever since she picked up Harry Potter for the first time; young adult. You’ll find that most of her tales are full of magic and brand new worlds and creatures to explore but also delve deep into the psyche of what it means to be a young person in the world.
When she is not writing, Rae wears many hats; business owner, editor, mother, teacher, and wife. In her free time, she loves to let loose to rock or hip hop, read the latest YA and romantic suspense books, visit the beach, and browse the Internet for the funniest memes.
