About the author

Cathrina Constantine is blessed with a loving family and forever friends. Her world revolves around them. She grew up in the small village of Lancaster, NY, where she married her sweetheart. She’s devoted to raising five cherished children and now her grandchildren. She loves to immerse herself in great books of every kind of genre, which helps her to write purely for entertainment and hopefully to inspire readers. When not stationed at her computer, you can find her in the woods taking long walks with her dog. Visit her at cathrinaconstantine.blogspot.com.


River Fairchild is somewhat odd, brandishes a dry sense of humor, and is owned by several cats. Lives in a fantasy world. A fabricator of magic. Makes stuff up and spins tales about it. Believes in Faerie crossings and never staying in one place for very long. Speculative Fiction wordsmith. The secret to her stories? Spread lies, blend in truths, add a pinch of snark and a dash of tears. Escape into her world. She left the porch light on so you can find your way down the rabbit hole.


Julie Flanders is a librarian and writer in Cincinnati, Ohio. She is the author of the paranormal thrillers Polar Night and Polar Day and the historical ghost story The Ghosts of Aquinnah. Her debut children’s book, Baby Moo’s Great Escape, was published in 2016 and its sequel, Baby Moo Goes to Hollywood, is scheduled for release in 2018. Julie is an animal lover and rescue advocate who shares her home with her rescued dog and cat. Find her at julieflanders.net.


Gwen Gardner writes clean, cozy, lighthearted mysteries with a strong ghostly element. Since ghosts feature prominently in her books, she has a secret desire to meet one face-to-face—but will run screaming for the hills if she ever does. Her lifelong love of books and reading transitioned naturally into a love of writing, where adventure can be found around every corner—or up a dark alley or a down slippery cobblestoned path. She thinks there’s nothing better than a good mystery (being an excellent armchair detective herself), unless it’s throwing a ghost or two into the mix just to “liven” things up. Don’t worry, though. Ghosts may be difficult to keep in line, but they’re harmless—mostly. And it turns out they’re pretty good sleuths too. Gwen adores travel and experiencing the cultures and foods of different countries. She is always up for an adventure and anything involving chocolate—not necessarily in that order. Find her at gwengardner.com.


Misha Gerrick is the author of The War of Six Crowns and a variety of other stories. She was born and raised in South Africa and currently lives on an apple farm with a small menagerie of animals. Visit her at www.youtube.com/channel/UCFRZK0eX_vgzbF7jM91N8DA.


Graeme Ing engineers original worlds, both fantasy and science fiction, but hang around and you’ll likely read tales of romance, paranormal, cyberpunk, or a blend of any of these. Born in England in 1965, Graeme moved to San Diego, California in 1996 and lives there still. His career as a software engineer spans thirty years, mostly in the computer games industry. He is also an avid sailor, armchair mountaineer, astronomer, mapmaker, pilot, and general geek. He and his wife, Tamara, share their house with more cats than he can count. Graeme loves to hear from readers: www.graemeing.com.


M. Pax is the author of the space opera adventure series The Backworlds and the urban fantasy series The Rifters. Fantasy, science fiction, and the weird beckon to her. She blames Oregon, a source of endless inspiration. She docents at Pine Mountain Observatory in the summers as a star guide and enjoys exploring the quirky corners of Oregon with her husband. Find out more at mpaxauthor.com.


Christine Rains is a writer, blogger, and geek mom. She has one novel and several novellas and short stories published. You can find her on her site at christinerains.net.


Cherie Reich owns more books than she can ever read and thinks up more ideas than she can ever write, but that doesn’t stop this bookworm from trying to complete her goals, even if it means curbing her TV obsession. A library assistant living in Virginia, she writes speculative fiction. Find out more about her at smarturl.it/CReichWebsite.
