CONTEMPORARY DARK ROMANCE * PARANORMAL SHIFTERS*
(Annalise Nixon *A.C. Nixon)
From the moment my mother’s friend gave me a box of Harlequin Romances, I was hooked. No more Nancy Drew for me. It was all about finding love and happy ever after.
Between then and now, I’ve done a plethora of things, enjoying most of them.
Well, they sounded good at the time. I’ve served in the military, worked with explosives, spent three months as a singing waitress in Interlaken, Switzerland,
and enjoyed many a moments pretending to be someone else on stage.
Eventually I found my prince, but he wears camouflage instead of a crown.
My court comprises two cats that can’t quite comprehend I’m the queen.

Gary Starta is a former journalist who studied English and Journalism at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst.
His love for science fiction compelled him to write his first novel ' What Are You Made Of? ' published in 2006. Inspired by Isaac Asimov, the science fiction novel focuses on intelligent artificial life and whether sentient androids should possess the same rights as humans. The androids in Starta's novel are created as hybrids - part machine, part human - further blurring the line between human and machine. Starta foresees a near future where humans will be forced to decide if intelligent machinery is indeed a life form. Possibly, in this near future, some humans will possess computer enhancements to overcome disabilities becoming hybrids themselves. The line between biological life form and mechanical life form will continue to be examined in a follow up novel now being written.
Starta cites Stephen King and Dean Koontz as inspirations for his 2007 novel ' Blood Web ' which is also reminiscent of the The X-files television/movie series. Contemporary authors Laurell K. Hamilton, Rachel Caine, Jim Butcher and Kelly Armstrong also fuel his aspiration to create paranormal suspense. The follow up novel to ' Blood Web ' - ' Extreme Liquidation ' explores Caitlin Diggs' supernatural gifts including the ability to see the future in dreams and to read a person's character through emotions. Updates on the publication date for ' Extreme Liquidation ' will follow.
Starta's crime novella ' Murder By Association' blends mystery with forensic investigation. It is a departure from previous books because it contains no science fiction or paranormal elements. Additionally, Starta foresees his 2008 novella ' Alzabreah's Garden ' - a fantasy romance - as another out-of-the-box effort.
Hi! I’m Tarrah. A little background on me, I’ve been writing since I was in middle school and throughout college. While it was a passion, I kept it under wraps and never vocalized or followed through with my desire to be a writer, until I read a horrible book and thought: ‘I could do better than that!’ So I did.
I am originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, but living in beautiful San Diego with my own little family while working during the day as a social worker working with the homeless. I am hardcore San Francisco Giants fan and anything dealing with cupcakes and Zombies.
My writing style is that I try to keep on earth. I try my best to not be too unrealistic with my characters, what they do and how they live. I want my books to be relatable and not to create too many eye rolls, when a character starts calling his love interest baby after knowing her for 5 minutes.
I’ve written and self-published 4 books and one novella. They’re all dual point of view aside from the novella. Thematically, the novels are friends to lovers, random hook-ups and office romances mixed with a whole lot of fun in the middle.

Okay, so I'm not one of those people that woke up one day and decided, "you know what, I think I'll write a book today." Who am I kidding, yes I am. However, I came to the decision because my fiancé was struggling with his MS, and sometimes when things that heavy are going on in your life, you need an outlet. So, that's just what I did. I started with just writing poems, which turned into short stories, then what do you know...a whole book! Trust me, I'm no genius! But I feel you might enjoy some of the things I decided to put on paper. Some may think, "My goodness she's got a foul mouth!" Especially anyone that knows me, but what can I say, I must've been a sailor in my past life!

I'm just your average nerdy bibliophile. I love books, video games, music and movies. In 2010 I self-published my first novel and now I have several titles unde...r construction. I love fantasy and have an extreme love for werewolves. I spend my days off work writing one of my novels or with my husband and children. I love writing stories and they seem to flow out of me constantly. I just want people to read my stories and enjoy them.

Scott M. Tyson was born and raised on Long Island. Scott spent his high school years mesmerized by quantum mechanics, relativity, and philosophy, while trying t...o pretend to be a healthy, normal teenager. Scott spent the next few decades delving further into the mysteries of the universe.
Scott left Long Island in 1977 to attend Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland. Following graduation, Scott began his first career as a physicist, researcher, innovator, futurist, and inventor at organizations including IBM’s VLSI Laboratory, Johns Hopkins University’s Applied Physics Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories, and Westinghouse’s Advanced Technology Laboratory. Scott also served as an advisor to the Office of the Secretary of Defense on space computing technology planning. Scott holds 15 US patents, has published and presented extensively, and has organized numerous professional conferences and workshops.
Scott is well recognized as a big picture thinker and problem solver. He integrates seemingly disparate concepts and insights into meaningful and practical solutions and contexts.
More recently, Scott began his second career as an author. He wanted to capture and share his thoughts and insights involving the nature of the universe and the puzzling paradoxes of modern science. Through this book, Scott is preparing the community for the inevitable cultural shift which must occur as we refine our thinking to eliminate paradoxes from our perception of the universe.
The Unobservable Universe is his first book.
