I write stories set in on a planet that resembles Alaska -- men go fishing, and women run everything

Lizzie Newell

I write stories set in on a planet that resembles Alaska -- men go fishing, and women run everything else. Humor aside, this fictional planet has a surface covered entirely in ocean, fjords, mountains, and glaciers. On Fenria, men tend to die off in boating accidents leaving control of government to the more numerous women. The situation makes a wonderful canvas for exploring relationships between men and women and their relationship to technology and nature.  My writing is science-fiction with romantic elements. I’m currently working on my third novel manuscript.

I grew up Colorado and have a BA in Arts and Humanities from Colorado State University. After moving to Alaska I earned a BFA in sculpture from University of Anchorage Alaska. I consider my writing to be a form of sculpture -- a monument so big that it contains an entire planet which can only be viewed through the magic of words.

Neva Post

Neva Post creates playful, character-driven fiction. Her books feature strong, smart heroines and dependable heroes. Neva loves a happy escape and thinks that everyday life could benefit from a song and dance number, even though she can’t hold a tune and is the person in gym class who goes left when everyone else turned right.

E.M. Shue

  

Writer, wife and mother of three girls. E.M. Shue likes her whiskey Irish, her chocolate dark and her hockey hard hitting. When she isn’t writing action-adventure and strong woman she’s driving her husband crazy with his honey-do list from hell, and dropping the f-bomb like its a comma.
Born in the Mid-west E.M. was moved to Alaska as a young girl and counts it as her home. She’s lived in the interior and even a western village, but currently resides between the largest city and the agriculture hub. The mother of three girls has always wanted to write but never took to paper like she did when she woke up from a dream that later became Sniper’s Kiss. Now she is four books into a series that keeps talking and wanting its stories told.
E.M.’s favorite saying is don’t piss her off she’ll write you into a book and kill you off in a new and gory way.

D.R. Slaten

I used to do other stuff. Now I write sexy books.

the good stuff

When I am not writing, I sing in the shower- terribly, inadvertently kill all the flowers I plant and shop for high end shoes at bargain prices on the internet. I love dogs, although both of mine have long since gone to doggy heaven. I read lots of books in a variety of genres. I make fun of the news and reality TV. I think chocolate should be on the food pyramid as its own category. Dirty martinis are my preferred drink. I think good friends and good conversation over a good meal is the ideal way to spend any free time. I’m not human until and unless I have had my first cup of coffee. And last but not least, I always try to buy flowers for my hotel rooms because it just makes it feel more like home.

Tielle St. Clare

Tielle (pronounced "teal") St. Clare has had life-long love of romance novels. She began reading romances in the 7th grade when she discovered Victoria Holt novels and began writing romances at the age of 16 (during Trigonometry, if the truth be told). During her senior year in high school, the class dressed up as what they would be in twenty years-Tielle dressed as a romance writer.

When not writing romances, Tielle has worked in public relations and video production for the past 20 years. Tielle moved to Alaska when she was seven years old in 1972 when her father was transferred with the military.

Tielle believes romances should be hot and sexy with a great story and fun characters.
