Name: Ron Koppelberger
I have been submitting poetry and short stories for the past several years. I began writing when I was ten years old, my grandparents gave me my first typewriter. I have written 98 books of poetry and 17 novels over the past Four or five years. I have published 346 poems, 186 short stories and 32 pieces of art in over 87 periodical, anthologies and books. I love to write and nothing thrills me more than seeing my work in print. The creative process is a thrill for me as is influencing the Reader in a positive way, in a thought provoking way. One of my primary goals involves touching the reader and giving them a gift, the gift of a long forgotten memory or perhaps a special insight that may not have been apparent.
I usually find myself in some sort of creative process, some form of self expression. I love to play guitar and keyboards in my spare time; music is another creative drive in my life and I enjoy playing whenever I get the chance. I also do pencil sketches, I have about six or seven hundred drawings; perhaps I’ll illustrate a book someday. There are 70 pieces of my art on facebook, have a look if your interested.
I am new to the field of art but I began drawing about 12 years ago and have over seven hundred pieces of art now. I love to create and nothing thrills me more than seeing my work in print. I have published 32 pieces at several magazines and web sites. I have published in Dark Gothic Resurrected, Blood Moon Rising, Fan Art Central and Death Head Grin. The creative process is a thrill for me as is influencing the viewer in a positive way, in a thought provoking way. One of my primary goals involves touching the viewer and giving them a gift, the gift of a long forgotten memory or perhaps a special insight that may not have been apparent.

Name: Daniel Chartrand
AKA: DJ Synn, Chartrando
Daniel Lee Chartrand (Born October 23 1985) began the electronic music movement in the small town of Tuolumne CA, teaching his close friends the ways of creating electronic music using basic tools mostly composed computer based instruments. From an early age he has had a fascination with the piano and other similar keyed instruments. Obtaining his first keyboard at the age of 3, he began the process of becoming a self-taught musician. Born at home to Lana Chartrand in Milpitas, CA he was raised by his mother for most of his life due to an absent father. In 2001 he left home at the age of 15 to live with family. Though hardly interested in the artistic creation of music in his high school years, his creative side started to show around the age of 16 when he gradually started learning the ins and outs of midi based composition. Soon after beginning work with the construction of songs through the process of midi he began working with friend and fellow musician David DeCoster. Through long months of learning the two started showing real promise in artistic creation producing numerous tracks, none of which ever amounted to much. While currently working on a compilation of original pieces for his first album release he will be beginning training to help further his knowledge of the process of music production. Creation of an original score for a movie has been a long time goal of his that he hopes to one day achieve.
ART TYPE: I construct abstract electronic instrumental music with a few choice instruments that include a Washburn Maverick BT 2 sunburst electric guitar, a Korg Triton LE keyboard, a Luna Muse 12 string acoustic electric hybrid guitar, an M-audio fasttrack pro, and Image Line's Fruity Loops studio software. All my sounds are fine tuned in FL studio from driven electric guitar to soft flowing pads. The construction of each track is a simple flowing of random thoughts so it's difficult to really place where the inspiration for a new song comes from.

Name: Glenda Jane Grande
Aka: tsukitenshi, angellusion, angel
Filipina by blood and heritage, Australian on the birth certificate – I’m a lover of everything that is unusual yet beautiful, or just simply beautiful. My interests are as widespread as the skies we live under and I believe in living freely.
My childhood dream was to become an angel – I wanted to be someone who could help protect people. While I can’t grow wings, I can write with my heart.
I have loved writing stories for as long as I can remember, but I started turning it as an emotional outlet at the age of 13. Since then, I haven’t stopped and have continued to use writing as my release.
My writing is far from structured and I don’t think I show any particular technique, but what I do try to do is to paint a picture within each reader’s mind and evoke emotion from the heart. Sometimes I rhyme, usually I don’t. The aim of my prose and poetry is to remind everyone that because we are human, it is alright to feel the various emotions that we do, whether it is love, heartbreak, sadness, anger, pain or happiness. I write to remind that we are not alone in world when we feel such things – each feeling has a lesson to teach us.

Dislikes: Deceit, lying, betrayal, bandwagons, bugs and creepy crawlies, snakes, being told what to do, etc
Anything else: I still want to be an angel!
