About: Richard Cody, a native Californian, has been known to write poetry and fiction. His work has appeared in publications such as Zam Bomba, Talking Raven, Half-Truth, Shoofly, An Audio Magazine for Children and American Tanka in the real world, and on-line at Margin, Mind Caviar, Weirdyear, Outwardlink.net and a handful of stones.
Richard is the author of two poetry collections and the dark fiction/horror anthology, “Darker Corners”. The first edition of “Darker Corners” was gathering positive reviews when Richard released a second, expanded edition. The expanded book pulls six new tales of dark wonder into the light, including “The Language of the Dead”, selected for Eclectic Flash’s Best of 2010 anthology.
Richard Says: My poetry in recent years has been greatly influenced by Eastern forms of poetry such as Haiku and Tanka. The tendency toward spareness in those poetic forms has also influenced my fiction, to some extent. Whether I'm writing a slice of life account of love at the supermarket or a grim Lovecraftian epic, I have found that less really is more.
Richard Cody Likes saying that he is the real Richard Cody, all the while knowing there is only one person.
Richard Cody Dislikes: Oppression in all its forms.
Name: Ellis Jane Loera, or E.J. Loera for short.
I am an author of novels, plays, short stories, poems, articles, and vegan recipes. I also have been known to strum out original compositions on my old Martin guitar and am far too often covered in pastels or paints from visual art projects. When I am not at work writing or painting, I can generally be found on long hikes with my dogs or daydreaming about all the places I have yet to go. My goal is to one day be able to live off my art, but in the time being I have grown partial to food and shelter and bide my time as a graphic designer and a dog groomer. More information about me, as well as links to some of my works and a list of publications, can be found at my website.
Inspiration can be found in the most unexpected places. I tend to carry post-it notes in my pockets so I can easily jot down an idea when the lightning bolt of inspiration chooses to strike. The themes that have often driven my written work - whether consciously or subconsciously - are the themes of what it means to be human and exploring that fine line where sanity melts into madness. Also as someone who copes with panic disorder on a daily basis, this aspect of myself has a tendency to seep into my work allegorically as well. My paintings are usually inspired by a color that I spot, immediately become infatuated with, and then the image springs around the color. I am always open to requests and have done a handful of commissions in my time as well.

Name: Amanda Firefox
AKA: Cali Rons
Amanda Firefox is the author of Shadows of Light on Tomorrow’s Mirror and another upcoming novel in the romance genre. She is a mystic and a spiritualist who knows the power of love and acknowledges it every day in every way she can. She loves romance, passion, sensuality, and the occasional foray into nerdliness. Her spiritual path is one of soft, solitary practice which acknowledges Christianity while ultimately straying into Wicca, Thelema and Quabalah. She identifies with Celtic traditions, she-wolves, dragons and the moon.
Amanda Firefox’s writing style has been described as somewhere between Rikki Ducornet and Nora Roberts. As a writer, she is just left of the mainstream and never fully in the current.
Likes: boys, boys, boys, boys. Some girls, but mostly boys.
Status: catch me if you can!

Name: Dylan Odom
I am an artist who follows no particular style but my own. I have a hard time with direction in my piece, I often don't know what I'm doing until it's halfway finished. That might sound like work, but I just the creative vibes flow!
