Meet the Author

Lena Brown ("Arach War") used her characters from Goddess Sisters, her upcoming mythology series set at the fictional Mid America University, to create the creepy spidey tale. She's a wife, den mom, dance mom and coffee lover. Follow her on Twitter @lenabrownbooks. Lena Brown is the YA pen name for women's fiction author Malena Lott.

Heather Dearly ("Through a Glass Darkly") is published in short fiction with Nodin Press, and has authored even shorter non-fiction with the Six-Word Memoir® series. She's also the Assistant Editor at Book End Babes. An actress by training, and a stay-at-home mom by choice, she writes at her residence in Oklahoma where she lives with her husband and three children. She is currently working on a young adult novel. For more information, please visit her web site at www.trulymadlydearly.com.

Mari Hestekin ("Midnight Troll") is a long-time lover of words. This is her fiction debut, and she hopes to revisit the world of Rainey to bring her on more adventures. She was inspired to write about trolls because she feels they are an underserved supernatural demographic. Mari lives and writes with her husband and two children, who supply no shortage of drama from which to pull stories.

Kelly Parra's earliest stories were told with paintbrushes, but upon discovering the drama and forbidden love of romance and suspense novels, those paintbrushes were replaced with a keyboard. Now a multi- published author, our "Mermania" contributor has created memorable characters such as a graffiti artist, a psychic teen, and a tough undercover narc. A two-time RITA finalist, she divides her time between her novels, freelance writing, and the adventures of motherhood, where she juggles her home life with two children, a tattooed husband, and a sweet poodle. Visit her website www.kellyparra.com.

Jenny Peterson ("Under Loch and Cay") is a former lifestyle editor and current freelance writer living in Denver, CO. For her day job, she's had the opportunity to write about everything from her love of Harry Potter to local shopping. Her short fiction has appeared in anthologies such as Buzz Books' Sleigh Ride. Jenny spends most of her free time reading and writing YA fiction.

Aaron Smith ("Spectral Media") is the author of the science-fantasy novel Gods and Galaxies, the mystery novel Season of Madness, and many short stories including three featuring Sherlock Holmes. www.godsandgalaxies.blogspot.com.

These authors really out did themselves. They brought even more to the table this time around. I absolutely loved that Kelly Parra and Jenny Peterson continued their short stories form Prom Dates to Die For and I really hope they continue them on some more and hopefully one day make them into a full length novel series.  I think the overall layout of the stories, in terms of story order, was excellently executed. They placed them very smartly and I totally agree with it. I have always been one who thought short stories were too short (haha), but these anthologies are really making me reconsider my love/hate relationship with short stories. I absolutely adore them now.
