About the Author

From the author: I grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the son of a mathematician mother and basketball loving father, and so naturally my passion became writing! It all began as a youth when I wrote tales to go with the computer game Oregon Trail, creating stories to go with Jimmie getting typhoid or Susie getting small pox. Oh the fun of younger days... but one must advance. From there I tackled poetry and received a $100 prize in High School for winning a poetry contest. In college I earned degrees in Journalism and Public Relations. Later I married my wonderful wife, Laura, and we now have an amazing daughter that fills our lives with such joy! Just before I met Laura the idea came to me to write a Fantasy story based on the story of Noah's Ark in the Bible. It was a 'what if' tale centering on Maanta, a merboy who descends from people who, instead of drowning in the flood, adapted to be mer people. Because of Noah's age when he died in the Bible that also left things open for me to incorporate Noah in the book as well. Thus 'The Ark of Humanity' was born. Since then I have been inspired by other things and have gone on to write Eden Legacy and Lazarus, Man. Eden Legacy is another Fantasy work and Lazarus, Man is the story of Lazarus of Bethany, told through tale and tribulation. I've joined forces with other authors as a member of Breakwater Harbor Books and am enthusiastic about the worlds and stories to come! My family is my most treasured achievement. I don't just choose to write. Writing is a part of me.

I greatly enjoyed this Anthology. It is extremely well written and each work, though different, is engrossing. I'll be looking to pick up more books by the authors featured here soon. Thanks Breakwater Harbor Books for this opportunity to experience your authors.

This review is based solely on the story by Claire C. Riley called Life Ever After. This story was intense from start to finish! It's a must read for anyone who enjoys a chillingly realistic zombie themed book. Life Ever After takes place before the events in Claire C. Riley's book Odium. I couldn't put it down it was so intense, I just couldn't wait to see what would happen next!

Note: This review is only in reference to Mindy Haig’s Cybilla. Written in the first person narrative, this hauntingly beautiful tale tells the story of Oren Gale, a musician who seeks his muse, Cybilla. Gale has loved this beautiful woman since the moment she first came to his dream. Gale desperately searches for her, struggling to bring her back to the mortal world. He then crossed paths with many colourful characters like the daughters of the water, Kira and Dia, Janus, the old gentleman and Carmenta, the oracle. The story behind Cybilla ia astonishing, not what I had expected. Haig’s lyrical, powerful prose will leave you wanting more. What I like best about the short story is that Gale is a remarkable character. Even though he had his future stolen, he remained upbeat. Instead of being whiny and bitter, he-to phrase from the book-turned around and shared the water of life with a stranger. Memorable quote from Cybilla: Oh hope, you are a fragile thing. I received this book in exchange of my honest review.
