Darlene C. Goodman
Darlene has several obsessions that make her a natural born writer of children's and young adult novels.
Obsession 1) Words. She loves words, all types of tasty words and their delicious combinations (known to most people as sentences).
Obsession 2) Story. Darlene is addicted to the high she gets from a good story. A well-woven tale gives a better buzz than any chemical.
Obsession 3) Super-dark Chocolate. She's not so sure how this relates to writing, but it must in some way.
Obsession 4) Angst. She's still knows and lives the angst of being a teen -- i.e., she wants, but doesn't have the boyfriend, she has no clue what she wants to be when she grows up, and she goes back and forth between mocking the cool kids and begging to be one of them.
Obsession 5) Reading. Nine times out of ten, Darlene would rather read a book for kids or teens than one for adults. Most books for adults are just too boring.

Sarah Templeton
Sarah Templeton is a writer waiting in the wings for her cue to bounce into the spotlight. An author-hopeful. She spends a great deal of time with her head in the clouds--on another planet--where she world-builds constantly and weaves unique races, languages, naming conventions, governments, sciences, arts, and magicks into her galaxies. Dabbling in a mix of genres, Sarah prefers clockwork dragons in her fantasy tales and magical swords in her science fiction stories. When not writing, she fights the pull of the knitting frenzy to which the other Myth Makers have already fallen prey and instead strives to break crafting rules with beads and wire.

Kalayna Price
Kalayna Price is the urban fantasy author of the Novels of Haven series and of the upcoming Alex Craft novels. She draws ideas from the world around her, her studies into ancient mythologies, and her readings of classic folklore. Her stories contain not only the mystical elements of fantasy, but also a dash of romance, a bit of gritty horror, some humor, and a large serving of mystery. To find out more, please visit her at

Tori Pryer

Tori Pryer was seven the first time she was bitten by the fiction bug. It was a short story – a mystery with a surprise ending involving red Kool-Aid instead of blood. She still remembers the joy she felt when she put that twist in at the end, and she knew she wanted to write more. From that moment on, characters, plots, and scenes have lived in her head and the only way for her to exorcise them is to put them on paper. She is currently working on a paranormal romance that includes an enchanted dagger, at least two serial killers, and a Greek god.
