Meet the Authors:
Lindsey Williams is an all organic free range human, lifetime bibliophile and occasional poet turned self-published author. While she has multiple Amazon best-selling shorts and a very well received genre-bending debut novella ‘under her belt’, she is just getting started.
Lindsey is a Jane-of-all-trades sort who is passionate about a variety of social issues. When she’s not writing, she’s been known to engage in numerous forms of self-torture such as participating in debates or translating things into ancient Egyptian. Some of her other hobbies include researching and/or analyzing pretty much everything to death, conducting culinary experiments, listening to really loud heavy metal while relaxing in her pool, and illeism.
Katherine Bryant is an author and artist hailing from Minnesota. When she is not busy writing tales of mayhem and adventure or creating miniature monstrosities from wool, she spends her time tending her menagerie and playing too many video games for her own good.
As with most humans, you can find Katherine on Facebook and Twitter, as well as her website.
Bartholomew Aloiscious lives in Williamstown, Vermont with their family. Bartholomew is a freelance writer who has self-published on Amazon. Bartholomew participated in writing workshops online after attending The University of Vermont, where they majored in biology. Bartholomew spends their free time reading, cooking, and playing with their dog Marvin. You can connect with Bartholomew on Twitter and Facebook to learn more about what their current projects are.
Story telling is an art as old as humankind.
Whether it is to pass along some great historical event, deep philosophical truth or simply a fun jaunt to pass the time, people need their stories. Perhaps once the art was passed from one generation to another around campfires or whispered at bedtimes. In today’s world, stories can take a more fantastical shape on twenty-foot movie screens or generate loyal followers who return to the tale every week as it plays out on their televisions. There is no wrong way to impart the message.
My stories are told in the written word.
In the tradition of Bradbury, Vonnegut, Gibson, King, Gaiman, Pratchett, Le Guin, and so much more I seek to find a way to tell my story. And in doing so perhaps inspire others to tell their own.
Stacy Overby works as a substance abuse counselor for teenage boys by day and as a writer by night. Her day job provides inspiration for a number of her stories, including her short stories “The Trial of Summer” and “Karma Incarnate” releasing in October 2016. When not at work or writing, she is playing with her son, hiking, camping, or involved in other outdoor activities – as long as it is not too cold.
Tara is living a dream one day at a time. She is happily married with two beautiful human children, three dogs, and a cat. She was born and raised in Montana, lived in the Pittsburgh area of Pennsylvania, and currently resides in North Dakota.
In addition to blogging and reviewing books, Tara enjoys participating in the Collaborative Writing Challenge’s projects. Look for her work in their upcoming novels.
Tara’s short story “Initiations” is included in Twisted: A Horror Anthology.
Sarah has been writing for more than 15 years. With a tongue-in-cheek way of looking at the world, her form of story and verse is blunt and witty. She lives in the middle of nowhere with two monsters (the kids), an ogre (the hubby), and whatever drama-llama is coming to visit this week.
