      With a degree in Fine Arts, and a long professional career in design, AC brings unflinching attention to detail to his writings and poetry. He strives for emotional realness in all circumstances, and excels at structure and dialogue. A love of history, philosophy, and the humanities informs his work, while having honed his craft from his adolescence has allowed him to delve into the workings of the human heart. It's there that he best illustrates how connections form all around us in ordinary circumstances. He also has a wicked sense of humor.

      Albert holds an MSc in Environmental Engineering, and although he is no longer a full-time engineer, he will always try to make his science fiction as sciency as possible. Just don't ask him about the technical background to his stories because he won't shut up.

      A reader commented Carlos practices socially engaged storytelling. Not preachy, but raising awareness of issues facing the GLBT community and humanity in general. These are tales grounded in real life, featuring gay men dealing with everyday concerns about family, friends, and relationships. Characters are men who tackle challenges instead of backing away from them. The author’s love of motorcycles and travel and his contempt for social injustice often play a central role in his stories.

      Carringtonrj writes genderqueer stories, playing on the edges of sexual identity: they often feature transformations, powerful women and all kinds of ambiguity. Carrington is English, likes old books, old music and curious people.

      Stories crafted here are going to be filled with angst. You'll find abused, hurting characters who feel lost and just want to be safe and loved, whether they are human, neko, or something in between.

      In the epic Science Fiction/Fantasy tradition the tales within can take place on Earth, Mars and worlds far distant in time and space. Even in such fanciful settings you will find that most reflect on love that never should have been but was always meant to be. These are not short tales. They're also not for the faint of heart. As with life one must take in both the good and the bad. There will be monsters, both unnatural in body and the soul, wars between Heaven and Hell and countless worlds. There will be those we claim not to love yet love most of all. Even with a life filled with such hardships love is the substance that glues everything together. Here you will find that PLOT is king and its many lines laced together like a fine spider web.

      Layla writes. Hard times, troubled times, the lives of her characters are never easy, but then what life is? The story is in the struggled, the journey, the triumphs and the falls. She writes about artists, musicians, loners, drifters, dreamers, hippies, bikers, truckers, hunters and all the other things she knows and loves. Sometimes she writes urban romance and sometimes its aliens crash landing near a roadside bar. You may someday see a vampire wander through, or a shapeshifter, or even a dragon. Occasionally there is poetry and every now and again you might see a song or two. So visit often, there’s almost always something new and if you like what you read, then please hit like and review.

      LitLover is a proud mother of two wonderful children, and an unapologetic romantic and optimist. You’ll find her writing reflects that nature. Her characters might be pushed down by life, but they will come back fighting for their HEA.

      Why do people, more often than not, do stupid things that screw up their lives? Intrigued by people, but not always able to understand their actions, that question of why fascinates Puppilull. A long time reader and spinner of fantasies, Puppilull is new to writing for the public and her content varies. To tell a story worth reading, she tries to stay true and honest to the characters. Besides, what’s the point of telling a story, if you don’t try to get to know the people who inhabit it?

      Sasha writes romantic fiction for men who love men, and everyone else who likes that too. Mixing the beautifully mundane with the outlandish and fantastical, Sasha generally just wants everyone to end up happy and in love, and sometimes the characters play along too. There is often, but not always, a fairly healthy amount of sex involved.
