Vivian Arend

The 2007 Nanowrimo challenge in November triggered my addiction with writing. When I discovered ebooks and romance novels in 2008, the rush was on. April 2008 I began writing what became my first published work – Wolf Signs released March 2009.

Becoming a writer has given me friends from around the world, and allows me continue to use my imagination. Peter Pan had something right – there’s a part of me that never wants to grow up. Playing pretend is too much fun. It’s also possible to write anywhere in the world.

I enjoy reading and writing both contemporary and paranormal works. Outdoor experiences figure prominently in my work partly because I’ve traveled extensively with my husband and family – to places with and without running water. My current highest elevation reached is 5000m (Cotapaxi mountain in Ecuador). I can help build a house, sew enough to repair just about anything, and I know far more than 101 uses for Duct tape.

Kim Mills

Kim Mills intended to grow up to be a psychologist with a loft apartment and 3 cats. Instead she dropped out of college and married a teenage soldier and had babies. No one ever asks her to speak on career day.

After working and volunteering in Social Services for years, Kim began writing in 2011 on what is now the Canadian military family blog She is Fierce. Somehow, that led her here. No one is more surprised than she is.

You can find Kim with the childhood sweetheart she’s been married to for more than 18 years (it will be 19 years by KallypsoCon), along with her three kids and their border collie Trooper, making their home wherever the army sends them.

Siobhan Muir

Siobhan Muir lives in Cheyenne, Wyoming, with her husband, two daughters, and a vegetarian cat she swears is a shape-shifter, though he’s never shifted when she can see him. When not writing, she can be found looking down a microscope at fossil fox teeth, pursuing her other love, paleontology. An avid reader of science fiction/fantasy, her husband gave her a paranormal romance for Christmas one year, and she was hooked for good.

In previous lives, Siobhan has been an actor at the Colorado Renaissance Festival, a field geologist in the Aleutian Islands, and has restored inter-planetary imagery at the USGS. She’s hiked to the top of Mount St. Helens and to the bottom of Meteor Crater.

Siobhan writes kick-ass adventure with hot sex for men and women to enjoy. She believes in happily ever after, redemption, and communication, all of which you’ll find in her paranormal romance, dauntless romance, and romantic suspense stories.

Sasha White

 

After almost 20 years as a bartender/waitress/world traveler/avid reader Sasha White decided to give writing a try. Her first novel—Bound—released in 2006 by Berkley Heat, and she hasn’t looked back since. After 10 novels, 5 novellas, and more than 30 short stories, though, health issues did cause her to stumble some, and she’s been far less prolific in the past few years than she’d like. 

Born in Calgary and raised all over Western Canada, she is a Rocky Mountain girl at heart. Currently living in Edmonton with her two cats, she’s working on the next novel in her Overwatch series, and a new super secret project she won’t tell anyone about. Yet.
