Erren Grey Wolf















Name: Erren Grey Wolf

I was born in York, north of Toronto, Canada. My parents were immigrants from Great Britain. My mother is Scottish, my father is English, but both have a strong Irish ancestry. I was conceived in Durham County, England, before my parents immigrated to Canada, so I have joked in the past that I was manufactured in England and exported to Canada. Of course, that is just the physical vehicle to which I am referring. My Mum and Dad did not give birth to my soul, which is a great deal older than my Earthly vessel.

Other info you might wish to know about my book:


THE LOST BOY
In Beneath the Surface: The Lost Boy, an unusual boy is born on a spaceship bound for the planet Midgard, but his very birth brings sorrow to his family. Out of grief for the death of their mother, Sean Archer blames and abandons his baby brother in the forest by an old oak tree. He goes away hunting, never realizing the full consequences of his heartless act. The mysterious Queen of the Forest finds the sad, abandoned child and comforts him. She notices he is able to see her subjects, the elementals (fairies) of her forest, and feels connected to him. While she holds the child in her arms, she gazes into his future, but upon witnessing visions of horrific events, she decides to steal him away into the Otherworld to protect him. When Sean returns and finds Erren gone, guilt strikes him down and he becomes repentant. He sees his mother’s spirit and she tells him, “The forest took him.” Sean then begins his noble quest to find his lost brother, to right the wrong he had done, unaware his search is awakening his latent telepathic gift. Inevitably, he comes to realize the longer he hunts, the more he doubts his sanity. The forest becomes haunted and there is a battle of wills as the mystical Queen Elaya tries to stop him from taking her little boy.

Colleen Colkitt















Colleen Colkitt is in her junior year at SUNY College at Brockport.  She studies Creative Writing, Communications, and Business Administration.  In between classes and work, Colleen spends her time behind the camera or editing footage at a computer for her school’s Television Production club.  While Ms. Colkitt spends time with her friends, she also steals time to add to her Origami paper crane collection and watch Netflix. 

With a preference towards satirical unrealistic fiction, Colleen takes inspiration for her work from friendships, family, and experiences with her coworkers.  One of the most influential authors for Ms. Colkitt has been Chuck Palahniuk.  Although she has tried to emulate his gritty style of writing, Colleen continues to search for her own voice through writing in isolation.  Ms. Colkitt’s plans for the future include writing more short fiction, as well as the completion of her manuscript for her first novel length piece.

Colleen has poetry published in Muddry River Poetry Review, Inclement Poetry, Bare Hands Poetry, and Poetry Bulawayo.  This is Ms. Colkitt’s first fiction publication.

Levi Stribling
















Name: Levi Stribling

AKA: L.P. Stribling

Levi Stribling is a writer of speculative fiction originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico. He has been writing both poetry and prose since 2008. When he's not reading or dabbling in foreign tongues, he spends his time pondering the preposterous in search of unopened doors to the creative side. He is currently a graduate student of Middlebury College, and lives in Washington State with his wife Kerrie.

When writing poetry, Levi lets go of all restraint and allows the words to come, saving structure for the later drafts. Prose he approaches differently, using outlines for longer pieces and discovery-writing shorter ones. In the conviction that creativity reigns, Levi always allows the story to unfold as it will, leaving the structure and sense of it all to fall into place later. Levi is an austere proponent of the maxim, 'writing is re-writing and that there is no better teacher than experience.

Amanda Marie Breton















Name: Amanda Marie Breton

I am a graduate student at Johns Hopkins University working toward a Masters of Science and Medical Writing. In May 2012 I graduated from Mount Holyoke College as a biology major and psychology minor. I am from Connecticut. I was editor for the Health and Science section of The Mount Holyoke News for which I have written over a dozen articles. My work has also appeared in The Montague Reporter and Encyclopedia of Earth. When I am not writing about scientific discoveries, I write poetry and fiction novels. 

I mostly write non-fiction science and medical articles. I find topics that I am interested in and I know others will be interested. I also choose topics that will educate my audience on important issues. I use different tones depending on the subject matter of my article and the audience. I like to grab my audience using humor, personal stories, and creative language. Most importantly, I want to make science accessible to the general public. In my poetry, I write whenever I have a great deal of emotion that I need to release in the form of words. The novel that I am working on right now is science fiction.

Maggie Doonan















Name: Maggie Doonan (preferred)

Aka:
Margaret Doonan

Maggie Doonan is an emerging Australian writer aspiring towards international novelist status. Maggie has recently completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts, majoring in Creative and Professional Writing and is glad because now she can finally move to the tropics. Maggie is inherently restless and as a result tends to move house, town and country a lot. Well at least she used to, before she was inducted into student poverty. Maggie has an affection for adventure and an affinity or narratives that unsettle, disturb or excite. Currently she is working on three novels and hopes to finish one in the next six months.  

Genre hybridisation and mixing styles to create something new or as yet unexplored is what drives my approach to creative writing. I love grappling with the different conventions and voices and mashing them together to produce a story worth reading. Before university I refused to consider anything outside my preferred genre of horror but now I’ll try anything and currently my in-progress novels include adult and young adult horror/historical fiction, sub-genres of fantasy, new weird. My preference is for longer works though I can’t help adore the brutality of a strong story under seven hundred words. My work tends to be dark and creepy whenever possible featuring damaged protagonists with dubious motivations. Gore and dead bodies are a common in my stories. The greatest advice I have ever received and one I repeat in my mind as I work is this: if the story doesn’t excite or engage the author writing it, then a reader won’t be excited or engaged when reading it.

‘Without You’ (Flash fiction – horror)

‘Another Day in Paradise’ (Flash fiction – contemporary realism)

Victoria Veach
















Name: Victoria Veach

Victoria Veach attends the University of Alabama. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her sorority sisters, her friends, and studying for classes. Victoria began seriously writing in the sixth grade. She is currently working on a young adult fiction novel and several other small pieces. Victoria hopes to become a surgeon and publish her novel.

Victoria is a writer of all subjects and particularly at this moment in time she uses the style of brainstorming. The key to her writing is allowing her emotions to carry her away. Whether it's love, anguish, or revenge she allow the words to spill forth. Movies, music, and life experience are the sources behind her imagination and creativity. Victoria believe over detailing is what causes the death of writing, readers should be allowed to use the imagination. For the imagination creates the best picture, a writer's words should just influence the image in order for the story to be perceived. 

I was featured on Daily Love on December 19, 2012. This was my first publication:
