I'm Mark Patrick
I'm English and write in British English - more or less.
I've published 4 books in a series called 'The Chronicles of the White Tower', the latest, Legacy, is a mini trilogy within the series. They are Adventure - Medieval- with a touch of magic. I can't call them fantasy as they don't contain dragons, elves, dwarfs, etc.
The four novels are, in order: Janette's Tale, Bennett, Winter Moon and Legacy. They are all 'stand-alone' books - except for Legacy which is the first of a trilogy. All are available on Amazon in Kindle or soft-cover.
My website is http://www.markpatrick.net where you can read the first three chapters of all my books. I also like sharing thoughts and opinions about anything regarding publishing or writing.
Me? A young trauma surgeon writing a wonderfull adventure during my time outside of the emergency room. And - against all odds - it is not bloody in the least, but full of the magic of Christmas: "Fraud at Snowfields" by Daniel Klock.
Pleased to meet you all.
I've just joined this gathering and I look forward to "meeting" you all as we go along.

Hello :-) I'm a newbie here and still trying to find my way.
I'm a published Australian author of Historical romantic suspense.
Murder, lies, deception, and love set in the outback under the Australian sun.
These are the stories of Faye Hall.
Her passion driven, mystery filled books are set in North Queensland, Australia during the development of the townships at the end of the 19th century.
Each of her novels bring something symbolically Australian to her readers, from Aboriginal herbal remedies, to certain gemstones naturally only found in this part of the world.
Each of her books tell of a passionate connection between the hero and heroine, surrounded and threatened by deceit, scandal, theft and sometimes even murder.
These romances swerve from the traditional romances as Faye aims to give her readers so much more intrigue, whilst also revealing the hidden histories of rural townships of North Queensland.
Faye finds her inspiration from the histories of not only the township she grew up in, but the many surrounding it. She also bases most of her characters on her own ancestors and their adventures when first migrating to Australia.
Faye was able to live her own passion driven romance, marrying the love of her life after a whirlwind romance in 2013. Together they are raising their 9 children in a remote country town in northern Queensland, Australia.
By way of introduction my name is Andrew Cahill (Pen name Cahill-Lloyd).
I am a self-published Children’s Author and have published three books.
I spent 10 years as a serving member in the RAAF, From 1981 to 1992.
I have a keen interest in Marine Life and enjoys his Marine Fish tank.
Andrew is a qualified Veterinary Nurse, and he is also a champion for animal rights and encourages people to adopt from animal shelters. Dax The Maine Coon Cat, a major character of my books, was adopted from an animal shelter.
Andrew is a grand father to 9 girls!
I'm Greg Smith.
I grew up in Papua New Guinea and Sydney, Australia then relocated to The Pacific Northwest region of the United States in 1999,
I've published 2 books in a series called 'The Kramer and Shadow Action Crime Series', the latest, YOU CAN RUN, has recently been released. They concern a United States Marine who rescues an Anatolian Shepherd pup off the streets during a deployment to Afghanistan. On their return to America they both become entangled with the FBI and their efforts to hunt down two persons on their most wanted list.
The novels are, in order: THE PITS and YOU CAN RUN. They are all 'stand-alone' books - and I am currently working on the third book in the series, LEX TALIONIS.
Another published novel is KILLING SOFTLY, an erotic crime thriller.
My website is http://gregsmith-writer.weebly.com/ where you can familiarise yourself with my books. I also like sharing thoughts and opinions about anything regarding publishing or writing.
Hello, my name is April O’Brien, and I was born to write. My unique writing style leads the reader in, captivates, and always leaves them wanting more. I have three books published and more working. My books are being looked at by Thruline Entertainment, for “books to movies”.
“ENTER (at your own risk)” is a psychological thriller that will make you think twice about entering another contest. http://amzn.to/29jDyNn
“It doesn’t get dark until midnight” is an action packed story of survival in the Alaskan wilderness. http://amzn.to/29bRV3X
“April was here” is my autobiography, and is more gripping than any novel. http://amzn.to/29eCfhE

I'm Holly Blackstone, and I write literary erotica in a variety of genres including contemporary, cyberpunk and fantasy.
I think erotica shouldn't just be about titillation but tell a story against a rich backdrop. I like my characters to be realistic and interesting, and they undergo a transformation as they confront difficulties in the story. Intimacy is a large part of adult relationships, and the people we meet and interact with can dramatically influence our lives. I try to capture that and create an environment that is detailed and captivating.
I have self-published nine full length novels and am editing my tenth, for a total just shy of a million words in almost four years... and I remember when I thought NANOWRIMO would be difficult. ;-)
I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest with four cats that think I sit at my desk too much and don't pet them enough! =) (They lie about this, as all cats do!)
Wish everyone success with their writing.
All the best,
Unbelievably- I'm yet another writer. Hi. On the scale of literary genius, I'm less near the top than Shakespeare and less near the bottom than some well known dyslexic Vogons. Though actually- I am a dyslexic in almost all genres.
I am quite often at http://richardbunningbooksandreviews.com
Hello, all--I'm happy to have found this group. I write science fiction, fantasy and romance, usually at least two at the same time. Sometimes all three. I've two published novels, and am working on the third. I think I've got the best of both worlds--I'm a regular columnist for a trade magazine by day, and an author by night (when I can, because my day job takes up a LOT of time). What it means is that I write constantly, and I think that's wonderful.
I'm Mary Martinez and I love to write. I write romance, romantic suspense, women's fiction and recently I dabbled in YA. I have a Web site with a list of all my books: http://www.marymartinez.com/books.html and I have two blogs. Mary's Garden Blog http://marysbooksblogger.blogspot.com/ and The After Work Cook Blog: http://theafterworkcook.blogspot.com/.
I recently embarked on an library panel tour. http://www.marymartinez.com/events.html with a group of other authors. And two I will be taking my three grandsons who helped me write History Mysteries with me. It will be fun.
I live in Utah with my husband and together we have six kids and eleven grandchildren. We also love music and love to travel, life is busy and full.
Thanks for listening.
Howdy. Phil Truman here. I'm a native Oklahoman, a former teacher and businessman, now a full-time novelist. I earned a degree in English way last century, but that doesn't necessarily qualify me as a writer. On the other hand, I don't suppose it can hurt.
I have four novels on the market in three different genres all of which are available from Amazon in both print and e-book formats. I would certainly welcome your readership:
GAME, an American Novel - http://ow.ly/dZdSl
Treasure Kills, Legends of Tsalagee #1 - http://ow.ly/W5k5m
Red Lands Outlaw, the Ballad of Henry Starr - http://ow.ly/Kvx9p
West of the Dead Line - http://ow.ly/OZF7H
Hello from the Adirondacks!
I'm Pete Klein, an author of vampire novels and an outdoor guide to the trails in the Adirondacks of Hamilton County.
I was born and raised in Detroit, Mich. where I attended Notre Dame High, Harper Woods. After high school, I joined the US Navy and served as a Corpsman in New Port, RI, and Long Beach, CA.
After the Navy, I moved to NYC to study acting at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts.
I has been living in the Adirondacks for the past 29 years and has been a reporter for the Hamilton County Express for the past 14 years.
I am happy to introduce myself. I write to make sense of life, both fiction and non-fiction, short stories and poems. Most of my life has been taken up with finding a way to express an unorthodox understanding of the nature of nature as consciousness. You can read much about Involution- An Odyssey as well as listen to short readings here https://involution-odyssey.com/ A lighter blog/website is here https://philipparees.wordpress.com/ which introduces more general ideas, poems and exchanges with friends. Letters of Love is about the only thing that matters, not sentimental but honest, even in criticism.
Hello gang and thanks for welcoming me!
I am a hybrid author, with several indie titles as well as traditionally published ones. I write speculative fiction, with 6 published novels out right now, with a 7th finished and an 8th half done. I am also a zoologist by training and all of my novels use science in some way, shape or form to underscore the human experience. (In other words, I'm a science geek/nerd girl and love it!)
I also penciled for DC Comics during my university years and keep my skills sharp by doing covers, so if you (or any author you know) need a cover, get in touch. I'd be happy to lend a pen!
I'm very active on Facebook, and blog on occasion. Come join the conversation at www.hleightondickson.com and www.facebook.com/HLeightonDickson!
