Chuck Heintzelman is a software engineer living in the Pacific Northwest.  Each day he juggles his passion of writing with his full-time job, school-age children, and the inevitable curve ball life likes to throw.  He primarily writes middle-grade and young-adult fantasy because, as he puts it, “my mental age hovers somewhere between that of a 12 and 14 year old.”

Gary D. Henderson is a speculative fiction writer living in the Atlanta, Georgia area. When he’s not writing, he’s writing. Code, that is. With over twenty years of experience in the software design industry, he currently wrangles wild software for, as they say, a “major healthcare company.” In his copious spare time, Gary attends writers groups in the Atlanta area, reads, instantly caters to his feline overlords’ every whim, and helps slay the occasional dragon or marauding horde of orcs.

Clancy Nacht squeezes writing in amongst her web development day job, her husband, and her three feral rescue cats. Living in Austin, she indulges her love of indie music, photography, and constant influx of new faces a college town provides.
With a major in Journalism, she has written for newspapers and magazines but did not delve into professional erotic writing until 2009. Since then she has been published by Ravenous Romance, Noble Romance, and Dreamspinner Press.
She watches “House” for the House/Wilson moments, but secretly thinks House should get with Chase, considers sarcasm a fine art, truly believes the zombie apocalypse is coming, and watches a lot of porn.
And she will never, ever grow up.
