      • Adrian Webster
      • Adrian Webster brought a great work ethic and passionate play to the NASL Sounders. Those were the days of playing at Memorial Stadium before sell-out crowds of 17,000 who literally hung over the field on those steeply-graded stands while hanging on every kick from the home side. It seems like a lifetime away, yet the memories are still fresh. Webster and his mates doing the impossible in 1977, a season that seemed to flat line but then turned into the Sounders' first deep playoff run. 58,000 fans cheering as Jocky Scott headed home the winner and Adrian's club defeated the LA Aztecs and George Best. Then came the big day, an event which all true Sounders fans set their spiritual clocks by. Soccer Bowl '77 and Pele's last match, the league final against Webster's Sounders. GoalWa - David Falk
      • Alison Jean Ash
      • Alison Jean Ash Living in 13 cities in 7 states by age 18, as a child I found stability in reading, from mystery to mythology, from Shakespeare to the backs of cereal boxes. Employment took me to kitchens, offices, bookstores, broom closets, emergency shelters and 12 years as a craft artist. And all the while, I've been writing. I live in Western Washington, near salt water and mountains. I rejoice in 2 children and 4 grandchildren, swimming and being a soccer hooligan with my husband, who inspires my romances both sweet and sexy. Many of my stories are set in the fictional Midwestern town of Oakville, where “people still know their neighbors, friendships last a lifetime—and gossip is a force of nature.” As Jade Max, I also write steamy romance. Please visit my blog at http://ArachneAlison.blogspot.com or my facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/authorAlisonAsh or my Amazon author page at http://www.amazon.com/Alison-Jean-Ash/e/B005C6FOY4 If you enjoy my work, please consider reviewing a story or two. I write for YOU.
      • Allyson R. Abbott
      • #1 Best-selling British Author (fiction and non-fiction) A Blooming Boomer who loves life on the road, making new friends and meeting great people. Life in the slow lane! After a few full-on years of travelling, which included a year and a half checking out New Zealand, a few Pacific islands, Australia and South Africa, 15months driving around the USA in a motorhome, some quick few weeks visit to Canada, Mexico, Cuba and Spain, we have now decided to pull over onto the hard shoulder for a year and have settled on the Valencian Province in Spain. Life is rich, but the pocket is empty and I need time to focus on my writing for a while. It is very easy to get distracted when you see so many beautiful places. One of the most common questions I get asked is, which country or place did you like the most? A very difficult question to answer as each country or state for that matter, has something to offer. I loved New Zealand for its beauty and the friendliness of its people, South Africa for its richness of colour and history, and in the USA Montana and Arizona for their scenery, Florida for its beaches, Louisiana for its diversity, but I could go on for ever. My writing career started half way around the USA, when I realised for the first time in my life I had time on my hand to write a book. I hope to use some of my experiences within my books; you will find a bit of Fiji in Goodbye, Hello and I am now planning a book three in the Abby and Ed Series to send them on adventures to visit the same places. Apart from my non-fiction book; How to Write a Simple Book Review, all my other books are about women over the age of forty. I can’t help but add humour, because we laugh in life and I try to make my books about people who we can all relate to. I do hope you enjoy them. I expect that after a few months in Spain I will start to get itchy feet. There are still so many countries I want to visit, before my husband and I get too old to enjoy them. So you never know I may bump into you in Thailand, Sri Lanka, Italy or even the USA as there is still so much to see there. Enjoying life while I can, best regards Allyson. http://www.AllysonRAbbott.com http://AllysonRAbbott.blogspot.com

Amanda is also passionate about history and her bookshelves are lined with  books on the Royal Families of Europe and thick historical tomes.  Her love of  romance novels began when she was snooping in her grandmother's spare room where  she found a Janet Dailey novel, from there her dream of becoming a published  author began.  Her perfect afternoon would be spent watching a musical, drinking a pot of tea and munching on warm home-made cakes with her family.   Wife,  mother, dreamer and lover.  Jill of all trades, master of none!
      • Amber Daulton
      • Amber DaultonAmber Daulton lives in the beautiful foothills of North Carolina with her wonderful husband and their five crazy kitties.

As a fan of contemporary, paranormal and historical novels alike, she can’t get enough of feisty heroines and alpha heroes. Her mind is a wonderland of romance and adventure, laughter and awesome ways of kicking a guy when he’s down. Writing is her passion and she probably wouldn’t be too sane without it. After all, what’s a girl to do when there are people jabbering away in her head and there’s no way to shut them up? Write! Nothing else works.
      • Andrew Saxsma
      • Andrew Saxsma Andrew’s style has been called eclectic and to the point, with some polished flowery imagery for flavoring. His ideas are sharp and grisly and mostly deal with the fringes  of reality, the things you hear on dark stormy nights, the things you dream about as you stare at a diamond-night sky, the things with no names. If the world of Literature  was a full-bodied woman, his writing would be her panty-hose, tight and fitting.

Just one way to find out...

An adventurer from an early age, he has always had an affinity for the sea, travel and odd jobs. He has been employed variously as a ship’s cook, a fishing boat captain, a bartender, an amateur boxer, a dive instructor, a beach bum and a writer. Early attempts to chronicle his adventures and recipes and break into travel magazines proved wildly unsuccessful. So he decided to write novels and sell those. Someone should have informed him that this is actually harder to do. That would have been helpful. These days, Liam resides in Arizona and is raising two sons who want to be cowboys, not sailors, which he thinks is weird.

      • Margarita Felices
      • Margarita Felices I live in Cardiff with my partner and three little mad dogs and I work for a well-known TV broadcasting company. I love living in Cardiff because, for all its modernisation, there are still remnants of an old Victorian city. I love writing and base my stories in Cardiff because it has such character.  When I can, I go out to the coast and take photographs, mind you, we have a lovely castle in the city centre and a fairytale one just on the outskirts, so when I feel I can't write anything, I take a ramble to those locations and it clears my head. I suppose it was inevitable that some day I would write a novel. My teachers at school used to limit me to no more than ten pages.  When I left school, I wrote short stories for magazines, and it paid my way through college.  I am Gothic, I love the fashion, the architecture and the music. The club in my novel is real. When I was writing book one, I got all my club material and clientele from here, I wouldn't have finished that section without it.

      • Peggy Bird
      • Born in Philadelphia, I’ve spent most of my adult life in the Pacific Northwest where I have happily grown webs between my toes and moss behind my ears. Over my adult life, I pursued a number of careers—nurse, legislative staffer, lobbyist, public affairs consultant, non-profit association executive, workshop teacher, oh, and mother and wife—before deciding to leave it all for what I’ve loved through every stage of life—writing. But instead of the intricately plotted mysteries and deeply moving memoir pieces I assumed I’d write, the characters in every piece of fiction I started wanted their love stories told. Even when I had many of them hanging around questionable people or involved in murder, intrigue and general mayhem. That’s how my romances were born. All the stories are set in some of my favorite places in the country—Portland, Oregon, the Puget Sound, Philadelphia. Some of them even take place during my favorite times of the year—Halloween, Christmas/Hanukkah, New Year’s Eve, Thanksgiving. Still no mysteries but I’m working on it.

      • T.M. Hobbs
      • T.M. HobbsT.M. Hobbs lives in a small town in Northeast Texas, with her husband, son, and the sweetest cat that has ever graced the Earth. She has always enjoyed reading stories filled with romance, adventure, fantasy, and mystery.  In recent years, however, she has taken these passions to a new height in discovering her own voice through writing fiction. This challenge began for her several years ago when she took a huge step and nervously joined an online group of young writers, who had the same passion she did for exploring other possible plots for their favorite stories. She had almost completed her first lengthy such project and felt she needed to find a place where others could enjoy reading it as well. When that project ended at approximately 110,000 words, she knew she could do more and searched for a way to put her talent and love of writing into motion for a more beneficial means. For her, writing is a way of traveling to places and times that would otherwise be impossible to touch and feel.  She has found the ability to create new characters and form their lives rewarding, and it brings her a feeling of accomplishment. Through writing, she has found that she not only feels better about herself, she also has a great sense of satisfaction knowing that she has created something that someone else can enjoy. For this author, romance is a fundamental component in what she enjoys writing.  Whether it is the Native American captive tale or a historical novel set on the rolling, misty moors in 18th century England, she loves sharing the world she has created with others. T.M. Hobbs has had the good fortune of having several of her short stories and novels published.

Work is almost finished on one such novel, titled Summons of the Majestic, which he hopes will peak agent and publisher interest in the young adult field. Tim also has a sideline in freelance proofreading, which he has been practicing since 2008. Proofing helps his writing…and his writing helps his proofing. Further details of his proofing service are on the Proofreading Services page. His current ‘pay the bills’ job is working as a Technical Author for Portcullis Computer Security Ltd. There, he pores over reports, tweaking and editing work from corporate clients, until the bell rings…and he can run home to his writing. Literature is very important to Tim, and his inspirations include Algernon Blackwood and J R R Tolkien – one a grandfather of the Weird Tale, the other the progenitor of Fantasy. In their prose he can get lost, and he tries, more than anything, to incorporate their sense of grandeur into his own works – lofty, but ‘noble’ ideals! His mantra for those seeking success in writing is simple: “Persist, exercise imagination…and happiness follows.”
      • Vee Michaels
      • I am a multi-published author in a variety of genres--but let's get serious--which genre gets the blood pumping and the heart thumping? Erotica--oh you are my guilty pleasure. I love creating the snippets of people's most intimate moments, and exploring the intimacy that comes from the most intense of feelings. I hope you'll join me on my journeys. I've worked hard to infuse them with irony, humor, interesting characters, and, of course sensuality. My erotica stories have appeared in: Playgirl, Breathless Press, Ruthie's Club, Tassels & Tales, Red Rose Publishing, and BooksToGoNow. They are out for the Android, the iPod (iTunes Books), the Kindle, the Nook and more.
