Dawn Galland
Many years ago, I watched an interview with Steven Spielberg. He was asked where he gets his great ideas from, and he said something like, "When I'm wondering what to do next, I just go to a place that seems ridiculous, and make it happen." (That's not an actual quote.) I liked that. So, my stories have a message that I think is important, but the main idea is to have fun.

Greg Richards Richards
I've always loved to read. But the words would not let me alone, so now I write them too. Love to explore characters in extremis and the bonds and motivations that make us reach for the sky, fly, and escape the bonds that would otherwise keep our feet firmly on the ground. The stars are there, why not reach for them, even if only in our imagination. Particular focus in verse on viewing the everyday world through the prism of contemporary and historical myth and folklore. Favourite pastime, good coffee, not too quiet cafe, and of course a good read.

Stephen Mossop
Stephen Mossop was born in Lancashire, raised in Cornwall, and is now a full-time writer living in Devon. He is married to Brenda, with three grown-up children and beautiful twin grand-daughters. His passion for writing and story-telling started early - as a teenager he edited and published 'Riff-Raff Poetry Magazine' (1969-1971), and appeared at the (very first) St Ives Festival (1970) alongside Donovan and a host of others in an extravagance of hippy-culture exuberance and art. After that, as Wordsworth put it, ‘Getting and spending’ sort of got in the way - the world of work, which reached its conclusion with his early retirement from the role of Head of Library Services at the University of Exeter. Along the way there was time for several articles, a couple of books about Library Management, and more recently a full length novel, a collection of short stories and a whole bunch of poems. Whatever the format, style or intent, though….Reports, Poetry, Funding Bids, Stories….he’s still trying to draw people into his imaginary worlds.

From the glorious winged Drahknyr and wise and fearsome dragons to pirates of the high seas and a world rich with history and lore, her imagination could be said to be limitless.When she isn’t locked in a reverie about what’s going on in the world of Aeldynn, she’s probably out sailing the high seas on a tall ship, or perhaps dressed up in costume at an anime convention.

Melissa A. Joy
Melissa A. Joy is a new fantasy author who challenges the conventional expectations of fantasy and takes them to a whole new level. It is no secret that she believes in the existence of all things fantastical, and that anything is possible.She began building the world of Aeldynn and started writing seriously aged approximately 13, and has since developed it into something truly magical worth sharing. From the glorious winged Drahknyr and wise and fearsome dragons to pirates of the high seas and a world rich with history and lore, her imagination could be said to be limitless.When she isn’t locked in a reverie about what’s going on in the world of Aeldynn, she’s probably out sailing the high seas on a tall ship, or perhaps dressed up in costume at an anime convention.

Grams Compton
“Grams” Compton 1906-1997 ‘I am an opinionated, stubborn female with a hiatal hernia and a hammer toe, five pounds overweight, hair turning gray, seventy one years old, widowed at forty-nine and never learned to drive a car or type, but due to TV influence, I’m learning to cuss. For fifty-five years I’ve lived in the same little house in the same little town at the edge of Indianapolis and have never seen the 500 mile race nor taken a tranquilizer, but I am heavy on Vitamin C. My first fifty years were spent adjusting and counting my blessings between each of m any heart-breaks. Blessings grow up, so I shall bring mine up to date.’ With those words Martha Compton introduced her poetry book. Never publishing it, she wrote only for herself and for her friends and family. She weathered through several personal losses in her life, a dear little daughter to scarlet fever, and her beloved husband to heart disease at just forty-five. Her love for life despite it all and her everlasting humor during human trial kept her and our family going for many years…continuing to this day through her prolific talent for poetry.

Xavier Frazer
Xavier Frazer is a resilient and profoundly creative young man, he hails from one of the troubled inner cities in Kingston, Jamaica’s capital. He currently resides in Whitehorse’s St. Thomas, which is strategically located on the eastern side of the island. Xavier is a writer by day and a reader by night; he has passionate love for rap music in which he idolizes Tupac and more recently Kendrick Lamar. His affair with poetry commenced at the early age of 10 when he read “If We Must Die” by famous Jamaican-American Poet Claude McKay and the rest is history. Xavier wrote poetry in High School to much fascination of his peers, but unbeknownst by his teachers. He had somewhat lost his passion to the art due to a failed relationship. However, poetry would not have that and it resurfaced after the death of a friend. He now spends his time writing as he uses this creative weapon as an outlet for his feelings. Those who know value and cherish Xavier would say that he’s a loving, understanding, charismatic, easy on the ears, outspoken and free-spirited individual. He had four publications in the Jamaica Gleaner and one in the Jamaica observer.
