About the Author

Joleene Naylor is the author of the glitter-less Amaranthine series, a world where vampires aren’t for children. As a compliment to the novel series, she has also written several short stories, including the Vampire Morsels collection, and an Amaranthine Encyclopedia. In what little time is left she watches anime and updates her blogs, all from a crooked Victorian house in Villisca, Iowa. Between her husband and her pets, she is never lonely, and should she ever disappear one might look for her on a beach in Tahiti, sipping a tropical drink and wearing a disguise.

To contact me, please send an email to: l.c_cooper@hotmail.com Twitter name: @LC_Cooper I live with my wonderful husband, our great kids, and our bratty cats in our cabin at the base of the smoky mountains. When not writing, I enjoy gardening, reading, vacationing in exotic places, and visiting family and friends. I have degrees in mathematics education and curriculum design, but with the fallout of that lousy system called common core, I prefer to write more than teach. My goal is to publish four novels every year, and I do enjoy writing short stories, so look for a few of those sprinkled in between the Novels. Novels will always have a price tag unless there's a freebie promotion. Interview: I sat down with Author, LC Cooper this afternoon for a quick interview on her latest book. I'm excited to bring it to you here on BeBee! CJ: LC, how has this new book come about? LC: Just Hold Me is my latest novel. It came about due to current events, recent elections, the increasing stories of extra-terrestrials in the news, the possibility of human-hybrids, and the U.S.-Mexico border. These issues on the news medias and social medias are of interest to many of my readers. CJ: Can you tell us about the genre? LC: The genre of this new book is a mash-up of Historical, Political, SciFi, and Romance. CJ: How are the characters creating the mood? LC: The protagonist, Ed McGraw, is a paranoid conspiracy theorist, who, as a world traveled photo journalist, must come to grips with his past to save the future of his marriage. CJ: Does this story have a meaning you wish to express? LC: Yes, I believe we will soon face the situation where humanity evolves, once again, as a result of extra-terrestrial intervention. CJ: Are you excited about writing for this Camp NaNo WriMo Contest? LC: Yes, because I love to write and the time pressure spurs me on. CJ: Do you recommend this type of contest writing to new writers? explain? LC: No, because writers who have already published their first novel have experience and have worked through much of the doubt that can come when writing. That being said, NaNo WriMo has a group for young writers, too. CJ: In closing, LC can you tell your readers what is next on the horizon for their reading pleasure? LC: Next on the writing table is a sequel to Just Hold Me, called T.H.U.D., followed by, Chocolate Barbells; which will be a Romantic Comedy sequel to Christmess (a John and Jennifer Adventure). Also, I intend to complete two more novels waiting in the wings; Fortune Island-- the third in the Collen Rogerro Adventure Series and Second Chance -- a medically ethical "What if?" novel. CJ: Wrapping this up, I'd like to thank you LC for sitting down with me today and giving your fans and followers a glimpse into this new Camp NaNo WriMo writing project! Good luck to you on this endeavor and keep us up to date when these next novels go to publish! CJD.Sign

Bonnie Mutchler has written hundreds of poems since her childhood, several of which have been published in anthologies. She lives in Missouri with her one eyed cat Blinky and her chihuahua Mo.

Writing is probably one of my favorite things to do. And not as a hobby. As fufillment. I think if I didn't discover writing, I'd be a very bitter, uber depressed, crabtastic butthead. It's just my calling. Being a writer, not a butthead.

My name is Anne C. Franklin. The ‘C’ stands for Curry, after my grandfather, Dr. J. B. Curry. I was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, but I was raised in Miami and the Space Coast of Florida. I live with my husband in Cape Canaveral. I am visually impaired, as is my protagonist in my books. Every night I read audio books until long after my husband has turned off the light and fallen to sleep. My other passions are traveling and writing. I started writing my first book, A Winter Murderland, several times. I started, and I stopped, for years. When I finally decided to be serious about writing, I had to rewrite much of that book. There were no more German Marks, and no one went to currency exchange shops to get foreign money. How excited I was when I found my first ATM in Austria. I’ve combined my three passions, reading (mysteries and suspense), writing, and traveling, into something constructive. So, I plot suspenseful mysteries, which take place while my protagonist is traveling. I also love telling my friends about my trips. Every time I tell a story of an adventure I’ve had, I try to make it more interesting, don’t want to lose my audience. When I was confined to a hospital in Germany, to get my broken arm repaired, I laid in the hospital bed thinking of how I would make this experience exciting for my friends. To my friends: Don’t believe everything I tell you, just enjoy it. I have a license to lie. I am now the author of "The Meg and Janet Vacation Murder Mysteries" series. The first book, A Winter Murderland, has the protagonists Meg and Janet on their winter vacation in the beautiful town of Trier, Germany. They book into a curiously empty hotel. A wild blizzard isolates them in a hospital inhabited by a cloister of robed monks. When a murder is committed and they are victims of brutal attacks, the two travelers discover a puzzling tale of fear and greed. The second book in the series, 'The Kilt Killer', has Meg and Janet vacationing in the Highlands of Scotland, where they encounter a series of gruesome murders. When they become intended victims, they must once again use their wits to survive. I just finished and published the third book in the series, 'Evil Irish Lies', which has Meg and Janet touring Ireland, where they become involved in murder and intrigue involving missing art pieces, and are again forced to use their wits in a fight for their lives at a centuries old estate in County Kerry.

Barbara G.Tarn had an intense life in the Middle Ages that stuck to her through the centuries. She prefers swords to guns, long gowns to mini-skirts, and even though she buried the warrior woman, she deplores the death of knights in shining chainmail. She likes to think her condo apartment is a medieval castle, unfortunately lacking a dungeon to throw noisy neighbors and naughty colleagues in. Also known as the Lady with the Unicorns, these days she prefers to add a touch of fantasy to all her stories, past and present – when she’s not wandering on her fantasy world of Silvery Earth or in her Star Minds futuristic universe. She’s a writer, sometimes artist, mostly a world-creator and story-teller. Two of her stories received an Honorable Mention at the Writers of the Future contest. She writes, draws, ignores her day job and blogs every other day.

With eight books already on sale I have three more to be published this year. Old Geezers 3 (undecided subtitle as yet), Progeny of Kongomato, the final in my monster trilogy and Three Hoodies Save the World 3. I've also begun my newest project: an end-of-the-world novel with a topical twist. No details or spoilers since so far, I'm the only writer to have done it.

I write fantasy/romance stories and new age/spiritual/fantasy/romance poetry. I'm also addicted to reading and am an obsessive crafter. I dance in the clouds where my stories take shape and then I weave them into imaginative and loving tales. Dream above the clouds and believe in yourself. I do and I believe in you.

I was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma and still call this eclectic city my home. I have a strong and firm stand in my faith and a passion for music. Animals have been a large part of my life and I've owned many dogs, cats, fish, birds, and mice. I love all animals and would love to own a dolphin if it was legal to do so. I love dragons and would definitely have one if they actually existed. I enjoy learning about the roles dragons play in oriental cultures. Dragon Quest was my first experience in the realm of role playing. Role playing has been a part of my life for more than 20 years and I've always had a knack for creating unusual characters. Branching into writing is something I've thought about doing for some time and this has been a fascinating journey for me.
