Meet the Author

I was born in the summer of love in 1967, and I've been a writer since I first learned how to string words together - but I haven't been an author. An author finishes works they've started. Instead of becoming an author, I had a career and a family, and along the way I accumulated a drawer full of incomplete works.
My first novel was an accident. Variants of a story had been floating around in my head for years as novels "to- be" that never became. The various story bits and subplots found their way into comic book scripts which became graphic novels, but the core story remained unused. I was itching to get back into prose - so I cracked my knuckles and sat down to write whatever came to mind. What came out was the first draft of The Paragon of Animals.
The moral to this story is that life is a journey - as long as you keep on walking, you'll end up somewhere you wanted to be.

Marion G. Harmon (Marion for his great-grandfather, George for his father), was born in Salt Lake City but moved from post to post with his family at the whim of the US military. His travels have taken him as far as Stuttgart in Germany, Sydney, and finally to Las Vegas. After gaining degrees in literature and history, he settled down to tell people how to manage their money.

Mr. Harmon's first novel, Wearing the Cape, was published in 2011, and he has since written two novels set in the same world (Villains Inc. and Bite Me: Big Easy Nights). He is currently working hard on a fourth book, this one featuring Astra and company, while polishing the plot of his deeply unserious space epic, Worst Contact.

Ian Thomas Healy is a prolific writer who dabbles in many different speculative genres. He’s a ten-time participant and winner of National Novel Writing Month where he’s tackled such diverse subjects as sentient alien farts, competitive forklift racing, a religion-powered rabbit-themed superhero, cyberpunk mercenaries, cowboy elves, and an unlikely combination of vampires with minor league hockey. He is also the creator of the Writing Better Action Through Cinematic Techniques workshop, which helps writers to improve their action scenes.

Ian also created the longest-running superhero webcomic done in LEGO, The Adventures of the S-Team, which ran from 2006-2012.

When not writing, which is rare, he enjoys watching hockey, reading comic books (and serious books, too), and living in the great state of Colorado, which he shares with his wife, children, house-pets, and approximately five million other people.

R.J. Ross started writing in junior high when she realized it could help her keep her A in English class. She hasn't stopped since.

Any comments or constructive criticisms are highly appreciated, so feel free to drop a note!

NEW! She's recently published a novel called Raven's Return on Amazon! Look for her under the name R.J. Ross in the kindle store!

Cheyanne is a native Texan with a fear of cold weather and a coffee addiction that probably needs an intervention. She loves books, sarcasm, nail polish and paid holidays. She lives near the beach with her family, one spoiled rotten puppy and a cat who is most likely plotting to take over the world.

Jim Zoetewey grew up in Holland, Michigan, near where L Frank Baum wrote The Wizard of Oz and other books in that series. Admittedly, Baum moved away more than sixty years before Jim was even born, but it's still kind of cool.

Jim didn't attain his goal to never leave school, but did prolong his stay as long as possible. He majored in religion and sociology at Hope College, gaining enough credits to obtain minors in ancient civilizations and creative writing—had he thought to submit applications to the relevant departments. He attended Western Theological Seminary for two years. He followed that up by getting a masters degree in sociology at Western Michigan University.

Once out of school, he took up the most logical occupation for someone with his educational background: web developer and technical support. Simultaneously, he finished all but three credits of a masters in Information Systems, a degree that's actually relevant to his field.

He's still not done.

In the meantime, he's been writing stories about superheroes and posting them online at inmydaydreams.com. He's still not sure whether it's a good idea, but continues to do it anyway.

He's also not sure why he's writing this in the third person, but he's never seen an author bio written in first person and doesn't want to rock the boat.
