Name:  Regan W. H. Macaulay

 
 Regan has been writing since the age of seven, directing since high school, and producing theatre, film and television for the last eighteen years.  She has now turned her attention to the world of prose and children’s literature.  She has composed the text for several picture storybooks (currently making the rounds at various publishing companies) and in January 2009, she completed her first novel for middle-grade readers.  In December 2010, "Aoife's Kiss Magazine" published Regan's short story, The Kiss.  Now she's pleased to have her work included in Yesteryear Fiction, specifically her flash fiction story, Sloth the Lazy Dragon.  For more information about Regan’s projects, including scripts she has written, please visit www.tripletake.net.  

Her recent theatre experience includes co-writing, co-producing and directing The Aquarium at the 2010 Fringe of Toronto Theatre Festival.  In 2007, she directed Shakespeare’s Brain by Allison McWood at the New Ideas Festival in Toronto. She also directed and co-produced Allison McWood’s It Was Kit, which was performed at the Fringe of Toronto Theatre Festival and the Best of the Fringe Holdover Festival in the summer of 2006.  She co-wrote The Paradise Lust Romance Series, which she also produced and directed independently in Toronto (at the Drama Workshop) in 2002.  Regan is currently polishing a draft of a horror-comedy play.

Accomplishments in film and TV include directing the reality series, Fairy Tale II (OUTtv), directing several episodes from the documentary series, Literature Alive Seasons 1 & 2 (Bravo!), producing, directing and co-writing the short film, The Scary Bitch Project (SPACE, SCREAM and Drive-In Classics), as well as the feature film, Space Zombies:  13 Months of Brain-Spinning Mayhem!

When she's not writing prose, or spending time with her talented husband Kevin (also a writer), she spends time with her beloved pets (including her Chihuahua, Siamese cats, and multitudes of frogs and toads and the like) and will soon be studying Canine Massage Therapy, and Herbal Remedies and Aromatherapy.  Animals have always been a passion of Regan's and are, more often than not, characters in her children's literature, as well as some of her films.

Charles Patrick Brownson





















Name: Charles Patrick Brownson

Charles Patrick Brownson is a writer of dark fantasy and horror fiction. He grew up along the Gulf Coast of Florida and was educated at the State University of New York at Fredonia where he studied English Literature and philosophy. He has lived in over a dozen states within the U.S., including Alaska. He now lives in Seattle, Washington where he is at work on a novel.

I knew I wanted to be a writer from the age of fourteen when I submitted my first short story to the now defunct Twilight Zone Magazine. That three-page, double-spaced manuscript I banged out on a portable manual typewriter earned me my first rejection letter. Since then, I’ve continued to develop my craft by creating and rewriting original stories, and always learning something new in the process.

After experimenting with different forms of writing, I settled on speculative literature as that seemed a natural fit for my sensibilities. But what I write isn’t purely escapist in nature. As the fantasy writers Ann and Jeff VanderMeer once expressed in an NPR interview, I believe that fantastic literature is a haven that allows me to tackle difficult real-life subjects in a way that is both effective and expressive.

The type of fiction I like to read most are stories and novels that take me out of my own reality, but at the same time offer insight and emotional resonance that stays with me long after I’ve put the book down and returned to the real world, which is the sort of writing I hope to produce in the years ahead.

Education: State University of New York at Fredonia, Literature & Philosophy

Likes: Dan Simmons, Thomas Ligotti, Haruki Murakami, Cormac McCarthy, Clive Barker, Stephen King, Peter Straub, David Wong, Richard Matheson, Paul Auster, Samuel Beckett, Ellen Datlow, both high and low culture, cemeteries, the color black, cloudy or rainy days, Goth & Darkwave music, Vampire Wine, absinthe.

Dislikes: bright sunlight, hot weather, closed-minded people, literary elitists, a messy desk or apartment, going to sleep and waking up.

Status: Married for 17 years with one 15 year-old son.

g. martinez cabrera




















Name: gabriel martinez

Aka: g. martinez cabrera (sic)


g. martinez cabrera holds degrees from Columbia and Harvard Divinity School. His short fiction was featured on the public radio show, Voices and has appeared in Drunken Boat, Segue, The Externalist, Verbsap, Cantarraville, The Broome Review, Eclectica, and Sparkle & Blink. In July, he was a featured reader at San Francisco’s famed reading series, Quiet Lightning.

He currently lives in San Francisco with his wife. When he’s not spending time with said wife or writing, he tortures young people with learning.

A short paragraph about what kind of art you do and the techniques involved.
In a nutshell, my work is a cross between Twilight Zone weirdness and Six Feet Under family drama with a pinch of silliness to make it all go down. I am interested in what some might call mystery--not in the detective novel sense, but rather in the sense of wonder. I guess I think the world is a little strange, and I'm ok with that. In my fiction, I use little bits of the fantastical to make that point.

Christine Schnell















Name: Christine Schnell

Christine Schnell is a Southern California girl who loves to experiment in all genres. A former engineer, one would think she'd write heavy science fiction, however, her stories tend towards the logical side exploring thought processes and character development.  She loves discovering different cultures and ways of life, so she travels across the United States, and outside to places such as Germany and India occasionally.  She finds the world fascinating and beautiful.

Christine currently is attempting to combine her technical skills with her writing skills searching for a Technical Writer position.  She's willing and able to learn about any new industry to gain such a position as she loves research and learning.  She'll also be chasing an MBA in 2012.  In the meantime, between writing, learning, and playing with her German Shepard, she edits fiction and non-fiction stories.  She's edited several biographies and an anthology as well as countless short stories for friends and other writers.  She's been published in "Page Dancers" an anthology by IFWG.

She first discovered her love for writing many years ago as a freshman in high school when assigned to write a short story that she couldn’t stop writing. She often became embarrassed when teachers invariably chose her stories to read to the class. Now she shares her work openly hoping that all will enjoy their escape into her fantasy worlds.
