    About the Author: "Mike has recently released all three books in The Cremelino Prophecy Teen/YA fantasy series. Mike was born in California and has lived in multiple states from the west coast to the east coast. He cannot remember a time when he wasn't reading a book. At school, home, on vacation, at work at lunch time, and yes even a few pages in the car (at times when he just couldn't put that great book down). Though he has read all sorts of genres he has always been drawn to fantasy. It is his way of escaping to a simpler time filled with magic, wonders and heroics of young men and women. Other than reading, Mike has always enjoyed the outdoors. From the beaches in Southern California to the warm waters of North Carolina. From the waterfalls in the Northwest to the Rocky Mountains in Utah. Mike has appreciated the beauty that God provides for us. He also enjoys hiking, discovering nature, playing a little basketball or volleyball, and most recently disc golf. He has a lovely wife who has always supported him, and three beautiful children who have been the center of his life. Mike began writing stories in elementary school and moved on to larger novels in his early adult years. He has worked in corporate finance for most of his career. That, along with spending time with his wonderful family and obligations at church has made it difficult to find the time to truly dedicate to writing. In the last few years as his children have become older he has returned to doing what he truly enjoys - writing!"

    About the Author: "2015 SPR (Self Publishing Review) Independent Woman Author bronze awardee Evy Journey has always been fascinated with words and seduced by beautiful prose. She loves Jane Austen and invokes her spirit every time she spins tales of love, loss, and finding one's way--stories she interweaves with mystery or intrigue and sets in various locales. She's lived and traveled in many places, from Asia to Europe. Often she's ended up in Paris, though—her favorite place in the world. She's an observer-wanderer. A flâneuse, as the French would say. The mind is what fascinates her most. Armed with a Ph.D., she researched and helped develop mental health programs. And wrote like an academic. Not a good thing if you want to sound like a normal person. So, she's written fiction (mostly happy fiction) as an antidote."

    About the Author: "Bill Wilke grew up in New Orleans, attended Louisiana State University, and is now retired in the Lake Tahoe, Nevada area. Between college and retirement, he spent nineteen years in the Middle East, eleven in Egypt, under the rule of President Mubarack, and four years in Libya, under the rule of Colonel Khadafy. This has enabled him to get to know this region's people, their mind-sets, customs, culture, and has afforded an exposure to ruthless dictatorships. This experience has provided the inspiration and the foundation for two novels that are anchored in the Middle Eastern culture, an action-packed, thought-provoking adventure novel entitled "Doublestar Implosion", a delightful, educational children's novel, "Maadi's Adventures in Egypt", and a British mystery, "Tides Inn"."

    About the Author: "After retiring to Queensland's Sunshine Coast in 2014, Gordon took in interest in researching his family. He discovered links back to the 1400's and even a distant link to the Royal Family of United Kingdom. During his research he discovered he had 6 relatives who fought in the Great War. He was familiar, with his relatives in the 2nd World War, but knew nothing about the men in his family who had fought in the Great War. This research led him to write his first book "A Family That Went to War" After he published the book he realised that this was not enough, so he settled down and commenced writing "An Australian Story - The saga of an Australian Family over two centuries" In this he has included the stories of Australia's early settlement and of the events that made Australia and makings of a family. When the book sat on top of the Amazon bestselling list for Kindle history of Australia and Oceania he felt that he was achieving his goals. An Australian Story remained on top of the list for 10 days. He was amazed that he could write three books in less than 12 months particularly as only recently he discovered that he had mild dyslexia all his life. His new book “The Ministry Communications Unit” is pure fiction based on a fictitious movie company set up by the Government during World War 2. He based a lot of this story around the locations that surround Caloundra. Gordon is confident that he will write a lot more novels with his next novel well under way."

    About the Author: "Born in the mid-1980s in Australia’s Top End, Gordon was plucked from his home at the age of 12 by his chicken-farming father and began moving around the world, from England to Saudi Arabia, Scotland, back to England, Jordan, Bahrain, before heading home to Australia at the age of 24 to reclaim his Aussie identity. He spent four years at boarding school in Scotland, partook in a brief yet unspectacular stint at the University of London, studying Arabic, before transferring to the University of Jordan to continue learning the language. Six months later he gained his first professional writing experience working as a sports journalist for Bahrain Tribune, a daily broadsheet newspaper in the Gulf. Gordon has travelled to nearly 30 countries in his lifetime, and will not rest until he has ticked every single one of them off his list. On his return to Australia, he attempted to hitchhike from Brisbane to Darwin, merely to see if it was possible, but hit Townsville where they didn’t like the look of his beard. He slept for three nights in the same spot, cosily nestled between a railway track and a main highway, being awoken intermittently by road trains and train trains. On the fourth day a man picked him up and offered him a job scooping dead barramundi out of a man-made dam. They had perished after heavy fog had suffocated all the fish on the farm. For days he toiled until the last, rotting fish had been removed. So impressed was the farmer with Gordon’s fish removing skills, that he offered him a job as a house relocator, picking houses up and moving them to different parts of the country. He accepted and spent the next year travelling Queensland extensively, rolling around under houses with spiders, snakes and toads. When the boss wouldn’t let him eat lunch one day, working in the aptly named Gordonvale, he cracked the shits and moved home to Darwin, literally found work in about 4 hours, and has been in the same job ever since, being paid to build roads and travel the Northern Territory from end to end. Gordon’s love of writing has never ceased following his exposure to it almost a decade ago, and has written of his adventures in remote areas of Australia, providing honest insight into some deeply troubled Aboriginal communities. In March 2014 he travelled to Nepal and was determined to write a travel book concerning the ‘Three Passes Trek’, which he eventually completed in February 2016. The book is called The Nepali Flat and it’s pretty good."
