SHANNON DELANY has written stories since she was a child. She began writing in earnest when her grandmother fell unexpectedly ill during a family vacation. In 2008 her greatly abbreviated version of 13 TO LIFE (written in just five weeks) won the grand prize in the first-ever cell phone novel contest in the western world through Textnovel.com.
Shannon's new series (a steampunk trilogy titled WEATHER WITCH, St. Martin's Press) launched June 25, 2013.Previously a teacher and now a farmer raising heritage livestock, Shannon lives and writes in Upstate New York and enjoys traveling to talk to people about most anything.
JACKIE MORSE KESSLER
JACKIE MORSE KESSLER grew up in Brooklyn, NY, with a cranky cat and overflowing shelves filled with dolls and books. Now she's in Upstate NY with another cranky cat, a loving husband, two sons, and overflowing shelves filled with dragons and books (except when her sons steal her dragons). She has a bachelor's degree in English and American Literature, and yet she's never read any Jane Austen (with or without zombies). She also has a master's degree in media ecology. (The living study of technology and culture. Which is cool, but she still can't figure out how to use Tweetdeck.)
Jackie spends a lot of time writing, reading, and getting distracted by bright and shiny new ideas. (She just came up with a new idea right now.) She has a weakness for chocolate and a tendency to let her cat take over her office chair.
STEPHANIE KUEHNERT got her start writing bad poetry about unrequited love and razor blades in eighth grade. In high school, she discovered punk rock and produced several D.I.Y. feminist 'zines. After short stints in Ohio and Wisconsin, Stephanie ultimately returned home and received her MFA in creative writing from Columbia College Chicago. She currently resides in Forest Park, IL.
JENNIFER KNIGHT. Hi. I'm Jen. I am twenty-two years old and live in Miami, Florida with my family. I'm a lifelong lover of books, romance and anything even vaguely supernatural. Except zombies. Zombies scare me.
I wrote the first draft of BLOOD ON THE MOON in about two months, during which I locked myself in my room and thought about teeth and moons and kissing.I must have done something right , because Running Press bought my book and now you're here reading this. I guess that means you liked the book. Yay! If I had a cookie, I'd totally give it to you. You deserve it. Anyway, now that Blood On The Moon is done, I'm writing the sequel. And also some other stuff that hopefully you'll see one day.
MARI MANCUSI used to wish she could become a vampire back in high school. But she ended up in another blood sucking profession - journalism - instead. Today she works as a freelance TV producer and author of books for teens and adults.
When not writing about creatures of the night, Mari enjoys traveling, cooking, goth clubbing, watching cheesy horror movies, and her favorite guilty pleasure - video games. A graduate of Boston University and a two-time Emmy Award Winner, she lives in Austin, Texas with her husband Jacob, daughter Avalon and their dog Mesquite. In addition to the links below you can also find Mari online at .

Born in the swamps of Southern New Jersey, Pab Sungenis developed a childhood fascination with cartooning and drew a daily strip for his own amusement for two years before realizing he couldn't draw. He wound up in broadcasting, worked for numerous stations including WSBU, WOND, WMGM, WSKR, WBNJ, WWBZ, and WKTU. He describes his drawing ability as like that of "a mentally challenged rhinoceros on a Ny-Quil bender", but thanks to the wonders of photo-manipulation and computer image editing, on February 8, 2006 he found himself creating The New Adventures of Queen Victoria, which has appeared ever since, first on Comicssherpa.com., and now in online syndication with gocomics.com. Pab Sungenis is available for quotes, signings, video or podcast appearances, and all opportunities relative to SIDEKICK: THE MISADVENTURES OF THE NEW SCARLET KNIGHT. FIND PAB: ||
