Why should people  read what you write?  I am a romance junkie, and I write what I want to read: steamy, spooky stories that bring  escape from an often hectic day.

Why should people read your work? Mystery, magic and mayhem. I love developing characters that are forced to come to terms with their unusual talents, or overcome challenges of a preternatural kind. I like mixing my genres too, so my stories are familiar but offer something a little different.

Edziza, a dormant volcano in Northern Canada erupts. This eruption
triggers other volcanos in different parts of the world to follow suit. A global
volcanic winter ensues. Savage Dawn is the story of how a handful of survivors
deal with the aftermath.
Why should people read what you write? My stories have been published in literary magazines and broadcast on radio. One of my stories placed first in an annual Writers’ Digest Writing Competition. I studied creative writing at the University of Alberta.
(If you enjoy the writing of Alice Munro and Margaret Atwood, you will enjoy my work.) 

Pen Name: ED Martin

Current titles (names): "Tim and Sara," a short story for Kindle; my short story "The Business Trip" was just included in Free Flash Fiction's anthology The Flashing Type: Issue 1; I've also had over two dozen short stories

fantasy about a spirited peasant girl teaming up with an arrogant prince to slay a dragon.

Why should people read what you write? I’ve moved around and job-hopped a lot, so when I write I draw on my experiences to tell the stories of those around me, with a generous heaping of "what if" thrown in. I like to take an ordinary character or
situation and give it a new, unexpected perspective

 Pen Name: T.L. Manning

 Current titles: “Red Sky At Night”
 Next release: “Wolf Moon's Blue Hour” Book 2 in the Night series January 26, 2013

life, or will the pride in them be the death of her?

Why should people read what you write? Writing young adult fiction has always been a dream of mine. I know how to deliver a drama-filled piece and leave them wanting more. My characters feel real, like you could meet them in person.

This is the story of one who will be, and the three friends that will help him be, a great Spear.
