About our authors:

Theresa McClinton, author of The Stone Guardian
Available for purchase here

A long time enthusiast of things that go bump in the night, Theresa started her writing career as a journalism intern—possibly the least creative writing field out there. After her first semester at a local newspaper, she washed her hands of press releases and features articles to delve into the whimsical world of young adult paranormal romance.

Since then, Theresa has gotten married, had three terrific kids, moved to central Ohio, and was repeatedly guilt tripped into adopting a menagerie of animals that are now members of the family. But don’t be fooled by her domesticated appearance. Her greatest love is travel. Having stepped foot on the soil of over a dozen countries, traveled to sixteen U.S. states—including an extended seven-year stay in Kodiak, Alaska—she is anything but settled down. But wherever life brings her, she will continue to weave tales of adventure and love with the hope her stories will bring joy and inspiration to her readers.

Sara Hubbard, author of Blood, She Read
Available for purchase here

Sara Hubbard is the author of young adult books. Her debut novel BLOOD, SHE READ releases fall 2012 and is a NEORWA Cleveland Rocks winner and a RCRW Duel on the Delta finalist. 

Sara was born in Australia to British parents, but has lived in Nova Scotia for the majority of her life. In addition to being an author,Sara is a wife, a mother, and a registered nurse with the military. 



Brinda Berry, author of The Waiting Booth and Whisper of Memory
Available for purchase here (for The Waiting Booth) and here (for Whisper of Memory)

Brinda Berry lives in the southern US with her family and two spunky cairn terriers. She's terribly fond of chocolate, coffee, and books that take her away from reality. She doesn't mind being called a geek or “crazy dog lady”. When she's not working the day job or writing a novel, she's guilty of surfing the internet for no good reason. 




E.C. Newman, author of Phase
Available for purchase here

Born and raised wherever the military sent her father, E. C. Newman is a storyteller at heart. It didn't translate into writing, however, until she found herself in Ancient History her freshman year of college, desperate to stay awake. Bringing stories alive since then in FanFiction, poetry, and original work gave E. C. the confidence to add a Writing Major to her bachelor's degree, and after a stint in acting school in Los Angeles, she gained a MA in Writing for Young People from Bath Spa University in Bath, England.

E.C. currently lives with her mutt of a dog in Illinois, where she teaches middle school drama and high school literature, and can't help but find it hilarious that she's now teaching how to write an essay when she so deplored them as a student herself. In her spare time, E. C. is also a reader for a literary scout, which keeps her current with the children's literature market. She actively avoids growing up by writing stories about high school and the trials and triumphs that accompany it.

Angela Parson Myers, author of When the Moon is Gibbous and Waxing
Available for purchase here

Former newspaper staff writer and corporate writer/editor, now writing the kind of fantasy I've loved since I was a child. Live in Central Illinois with my high school sweetheart, where we somewhat successfully masquerade as normal grandparents. Please see my blog at http://www.angelaparsonmyers.blogspot.com.
