Nicky Charles is an independent writer/publisher who became an author quite by accident. For many years she wrote as a hobby, seeing herself a 'reader not a writer'. Now a full-time author, she thanks-or blames, depending on the day-her friend/editor and fellow author, Jan Gordon, for the career she now finds herself immersed in.
When she writes, Nicky sees the story unfolding in her head like a movie and tries to include enough detail so readers can 'see' the story just as she does. The sights, sounds, smells and sensations of a scene are almost as important to her as the actual plot.
Nicky lives in Canada and tries to stick to Canadian spelling and punctuation in her work. She is an avid supporter of animal shelters, nature conservancy, food banks and a variety of other charities. Currently, she has three 'official' cats though a number of strays seem to take up residence in her garden each year.
When not writing, Nicky enjoys reading - though she often bemoans that she seldom has time for it any more. She also enjoys spending time in nature, gardening, taking day trips and eating dark chocolate.

Jessica Stelluto has enjoyed creating art since she was a small child. That artistic passion continued to grow through adolescence where she discovered graphic design after high school. She decided to pursue it as a career and began her journey after achieving her degree in college. She began Jazer Designs, which started as a consolidation of work in a viewable and shareable online portfolio. It is now expanding into a growing business. She specializes in highly detailed line drawings, logos, book covers, flyers, photo editing, and so much more. When not designing, she enjoys spending time with her family, her dogs, and working on cars as well as attending car related events.
