C. Deanne Rowe

C.-Deanne-RoweA well written romance with  a heart wrenching plot, a song with  lyrics which touch your soul; nothing is more powerful.  The  only  way it would be  was if you  were on

a warm sunny beach with white sand and blue water as far  as you  could see.  I have always loved the power of words.  How they could make me  cry, laugh, or  provoke all range of emotions.  I wouldn’t be  who  I am  without words.

I learned to feel  good listening to songs which filled my heart.  I learned the meaning of love  watching all the good romance movies. Of course, there was sex scattered through the pages of the paperbacks I hid  from my parents.  Words have always been my friend, my comfort, my teacher. It was  only  logical I would grow up  and want to be  an  author, to spin a tale which would captivate readers.  My life journey has taken me  in this direction and I can  only  hope I don’t disappoint those who  choose to follow.

Malynda McCarrick

Malynda McCarrick

Malynda McCarrickMalynda started her writing career on her novel, Mystic Artistic, but that wasn’t the first book she published. It was her baby, she couldn’t get it right, she wasn’t ready to unleash it onto the world…even after no less than six rewrites. Her first published book was Ghosts, Gunman and the Grinning Cat, which she plotted, wrote, and completed during NaNoWriMo. The ease with which she was able to put together a novel in one month gave her the confidence to finish and publish the book with which she most identified, Mystic Artistic. Then came two more books in the series, Mystic Geek and Mystic Whispers. Malynda is proud to create characters that are awkward and cynical, especially when her readers tell her they can easily relate to those characters. To date, Malynda has thirteen published books, several in the works, and several ideas for future stories. So many ideas, so little time.
