C. Bradley Owens
C. Bradley Owens was born in the small coal mining town of Grundy, Virginia. After a stint in the suburbs of Chicago, C. Bradley’s family settled near the even smaller coal mining town of Haysi, Virginia, where he spent most of his childhood in the woods on the side of a mountain in the heart of the coalfields of Appalachia, dreaming of a larger, more complex world. Through reading, he found a more complex world, and as an adult he seeks to create such a world through his fiction.
He writes for all of those children sitting alone in their rooms, whether in the woods or in the city, hoping, longing, wishing for just a glimpse of another world, another possibility. He writes for the outsider in all of us, for the kids that desperately want to fit in but consistently find that they cannot for whatever reason, and he writes to let everyone know that, no matter what age or condition of birth, they are not alone on that mountain side, or in that forest, or in that apartment building, or in that house in the suburbs.
His debut novel, The First Story, is available now on Amazon.
Diane Anthony is the author of SUPERNOVA, which is being sold online worldwide. Diane lives in central Wisconsin with her husband and three boys. When not reading or writing, she likes to go hiking as often as she can. Her favorite trail—so far—is the Ice Age Trail with Skunk Foster Lake being her favorite section of it.
Diane's fascination with superheroes sparked the idea for her first novel, SUPERNOVA, taking some inspiration from X-Men. Her latest novel takes a darker turn following a suicidal teenager battling depression in a post-apocalyptic setting.
Her next novel, The Rare, is available for now on Amazon.
Eva writes historical fiction. She was born in Jacksonville, Florida. She left that humidity pit at the age of three and spent the next twenty-one years in California, Idaho, Kentucky, and Washington before ending up in Oregon, where she now lives on a homestead in the western foothills with her husband and five children, two of whom are human.
Eva began writing stories when very young and wrote almost constantly until she was 25, after which she took a years-long break before coming back to pursue her old dream of becoming a published author for real. She loves crafting historical fiction that brings humanity to real times and events that otherwise might seem impersonal and distant, and making doodles to go with them.
When Eva is not writing, she is teaching her human children, eating chocolate, cooking or baking, wasting time on Twitter, and making weird shrieky noises every time she sees her non-human children. Also enjoys driving in snow when opportunity arises, because snow is the bomb.
Her debut novel, The War in Our Hearts, will be available March 24, 2019. You can pre-order it now on Amazon.
