Nick Allen















Name: Nick Allen

I am a Mental Health Nurse living near to the south coast of England. In my spare time I enjoy walking, photography and travel in general. In addition to my writing blog, The Tiny Badger, I have a blog called Dorset Allsorts which features photographs of the lovely county I live in. Inspired by my passion for writing I have recently started a writer's group, Dorset Scribblers, and we already have more members than our meeting hall can accommodate, while members new to writing, are already having their work published!

I write Flash Fiction, that is stories of 1,000 words or less. I started 6 years ago writing 'twist in the tail' stories as I'd always loved those, and for a while could write nothing else! But it is fiendishly difficult to keep coming up with new twists and gradually my writing changed to include horror, romance and more general fiction. I usually write to a given prompt - the difficult part being coming up with a story idea. Once the tale is in my head, and it often arrives as a fully formed idea (from where, I know not) I write it in one sitting. Next comes the most important part of the process, editing, best done a few days after the first draft. It is at this point that a rough draft becomes something worth sending out for publication. I have found that skipping this part usually means work is not accepted for publication the earlier effort is wasted. If you have never tried it before, writing Flash is great fun, and if not careful, can become addictive!

Lindsey R. Loucks












Name: Lindsey R. Loucks

I write horror, dark comedy, and whatever else I can think up. My short stories have been published in Work Literary Magazine and Weirdyear, and future issues of The Red Asylum and Yellow Mama. I'm currently querying my second young adult novel.

When I'm hung up with something in my writing, my cat and I will have staring contests. He always wins, but my hang up soon disappears. While writing, I ask myself, "What's the very worst thing that could happen to my characters?", then I make it happen. Enter evil cackle here.

Feel free to stop by my blog at http://jessesaidyes.blogspot.com and/or follow me on Twitter @LindseyRLoucks

Education: Master of Library Science, Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education

Likes: Playing hide-and-seek with my cat, eating enough chocolate to put myself into a coma, reading everything in site including cereal boxes, writing, watching scary movies in the dark by myself, and the Foo Fighters.

Dislikes: Mean people, having to function pre-caffeined.

Status: In the same relationship for sixteen years. We've talked about getting married, but we'd rather go to the zoo instead.
