About the Authors
Chuck Anderson is a painter, publisher, and writer. He lives in Colorado, and he has a weakness for muscle cars. Chuck is retired from a job of 22 years and like the name Voldemort, "You-Know-Who" or "He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named," he never wants to speak of his past career out-loud ever again. Chuck can be found at madcow.press.
M.L. Buchman started the first of over 50 novels and even more short stories while flying from South Korea to ride his bicycle across the Australian Outback. All part of a solo around-the-world trip (a mid-life crisis on wheels) that ultimately launched his writing career.
In addition to science fiction, he also writes thrillers, fantasy, and military romantic suspense books. His titles have been named Barnes & Noble and NPR "Top 5 of the Year" and 3-time Booklist "Top 10 of the Year." In among his career as a corporate project manager he has: rebuilt and single-handed a fifty-foot sailboat, both flown and jumped out of airplanes, and designed and built two houses.
He is now making his living as a full-time writer on the Oregon Coast assisted by his beloved wife. He remains constantly amazed at what can be done with a degree in Geophysics. You may keep up with his writing and receive exclusive content by subscribing to his newsletter at www.mlbuchman.com.

Michele Callahan is a science fiction and romance fanatic and full-time writer whose earliest movie memories are of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and light sabers. (Still waiting for Santa to come through on that one.) She wrote her first short story at age eleven about five friends who fell into another dimension and had to save the Earth – all in ten, sloppy but action packed, wide-ruled notebook pages. Her mother was an English teacher and she inspired a love of reading and writing that has lasted a lifetime. Michele publishes monthly and writes six days a week.
Michele writes time travel and paranormal romance as well as standard science fiction.
She also co-writes sexy-as-hell sci-fi romance as Grace Goodwin.

Ron Collins writes across the spectrum of speculative fiction, as well as the occasional thriller or crime story. His latest SF series, Stealing the Sun is available from Skyfox publishing.
His short fiction has received a Writers of the Future prize and a CompuServe HOMer Award. His short story "The White Game" was nominated for the Short Mystery Fiction Society's 2016 Derringer Award.
He has contributed a hundred or so short stories to professional publications such as Analog, Asimov's, and several other magazines and anthologies (including several editions of the Fiction River Anthology Series).
He holds a degree in Mechanical Engineering, and has worked to develop avionics systems, electronics, and information technology before chucking it all to write full-time–which he now does from his home in the shadows of the Santa Catalina Mountains.

Duncan Ellis is a novelist and software engineer living in Portland, Oregon. He grew up in Yorkshire where he learned to drink tea and complain about cricket, and lived in several cities in England before moving to the US in 2001.
He has written many novel drafts under the auspices of National Novel Writing Month, but his first published book was "Livia and the Corpuscles", an adventure of Steampunk Rome.
Duncan started writing after he began his career as a software developer in Nottingham, making serial fiction for his co-workers. He took a break from narrative fiction after moving to Surrey, but continued to invent fictional elements in roleplaying and collaborative games. He just couldn't stop making things up.
He is currently working on "A Turquoise Song", a science fiction mystery set in a near-future Portland featuring robots, ninjas, and synaesthesia.

Bruno Lombardi's shorts stories have been published in a wide assortment of anthologies and magazines, including Alternative Truths, With Iron And Fire, More Alternative Truths, Weirdbook and Occult Detective Quarterly.
"Snake Oil," originally published by Daverana Enterprises, is Bruno's first novel. A second edition of "Snake Oil," by Martinus Publishing, is now available.
Bruno Lombardi was born in Montreal in 1968 and has had a rather distressing tendency to be a weirdness magnet for much of his adult life. If your friend's cousin's brother-in-law tells you a story and swears it's true and that it 'happened to someone he knows', it was probably Bruno.
He currently lives in Ottawa and works as a civil servant for the Canadian government. His hobbies include attempting to dissuade the cults that form around him, managing the betting pool on the next Weird Thing, and being a slave to his cat, Mynx. Rumours that he secretly runs the Canadian government from his nuclear bunker with an android called 'Justin Trudeau' as a front have never been substantiated and are merely rumours. Honestly.
He has also met lots of people off the internet and has yet to be murdered by any of them; his cat, on the other hand, has other ideas.
Look for Bruno on Facebook.
M. E. Owen
M.E. Owen writes science fiction, fantasy and crime, often in the same story.
She lives on the wet side of Washington state, and when not writing, plays with honking big transportation geodatabases, occasionally kayaks and more occasionally throws knives (not all at once, but that would be cool).
Her short work has also appeared in Abyss & Apex, Fireside Fiction, Fiction River, Flash Fiction Online, and elsewhere. Her debut novel, Survival Instincts, a science fiction noir, is scheduled for publication in 2018. You can keep up with her at www.MEOwen.com.
Two full years of writing, fifty-one titles, and a ton of fun! All three of those things describe my writing career to date. I have both a Culinary and Retail background that helps me write better books! So much to do this year and so little time.
