Teri Riggs was destined to be a writer. As a small girl she didn’t read bedtime stories, she made up her own. Who needed "Little Red Riding Hood" or "The Three Little Pigs" when there were so many great tales bouncing around in her head? When she grew up and became a mother to three little girls, she continued the tradition of making up bedtime stories. On the occasions she chose to tell conventional fairy tales, Teri usually gave them a bit of tweaking here and there or added a new ending. Her girls loved it.
After her daughters had the nerve to actually grow up and leave home, Teri discovered she had a passion for writing and jumped right in. It came as no surprise she chose to write mysteries and happily-ever-after’s since that’s the genres she loves to read.
Teri lives in Marietta, Georgia with her husband, one of her daughters and two dogs that seem to think they rule the world. And some days Teri thinks maybe they do.
Teri still frequently tells herself stories as she falls asleep. The only difference now is she wakes up the next morning and turns her bedtime stories into books.

I grew up in a small rural town in Oklahoma where our favorite entertainment on summer evenings was to sit outside under the stars and tell stories. When I went to bed at night, instead of a lullaby, I got a story. That could be due to the fact that everybody in my family has a singing voice like a bullfrog with laryngitis, but they sure could tell stories--ghost stories, funny stories, happy stories, scary stories.
For as long as I can remember I've been a storyteller. Thank goodness for computers so I can write down my stories. It's hard to make listeners sit still for the length of a book! Like my family's tales, my stories are funny, scary, dramatic, romantic, paranormal, magic.
Writer. Sculptor. Bad fitness advice. In between writing books I fill my not-so-busy schedule with the practicing of martial arts, mountain biking, paddle surfing, weight lifting, and of course HBO, PS4 and increasing the size of my beloved personal library.

As far back as he can remember, Bill Hiatt had a love for reading so intense that he eventually ended up owning over eight thousand books--not counting e-books! He has also loved to write for almost that long. As an English teacher, he had little time to write, though he always felt there were stories within him that longed to get out, and he did manage to publish a few books near the end of his teaching career. Now that he is retired from teaching, the stories are even more anxious to get out into the world, and they will not be denied!
Since fantasy has always been Bill's favorite genre, and since he spent thirty-six years in teaching, mostly at the high school level, it's not surprising that his first published work would be young adult fantasy, though he plans to explore other genres in the future, including science-fiction, horror, and nonfiction related to education.

I remember watching TV or reading a book as a child and saying, What if certain events happened differently. What if I could change how those events played out, make my own beginnings, middles and ends. How about a sequel? I would daydream about this in vivid color and non-stop action. When Star Wars came on the scene, my imagination really kicked into gear and the what if’s became impossible to ignore.
I started writing my ideas down, developed them, created my own worlds and characters. There was one in particular I couldn’t forget about, on a world I loved to visit. So I wrote. A little at first, then more, until about three years ago, when the main character on this world insisted I tell their story.
And so it began.
I was hooked. My computer is now full of story ideas waiting for their turn to receive my full attention. I have finished a YA Science Fiction/Fantasy novel called Storm of Arranon and the next in the series Storm of Arranon: Fire and Ice. The final book is taking shape in the thought process and will become a fifty thousand word draft in November 2015 during NaNoWriMo.
I was born in Hanford, California in 1969. In the mid 1970's, my father began a Law Enforcement career just up the road with the Kingsburg Police Department, taking our family there. It was in junior high school when things began to take shape. I discovered horror novels - books by Stephen King, Clive Barker and Michael Slade, to name a few - , as well as hard rock music. These influences began to form a spark of creativity within me. I began to play guitar and pen song lyrics, but soon found myself confined in that tight medium, desiring to do longer works.

When I'm not teaching science to middle-schoolers, I enjoy reading and writing fiction. It was not always my dream to write but I think serendipity likes to dwell with dreamers and the hyper-imaginative. Since childhood, I can remember entertaining myself and family with tales extended from television or movies. I was also quite the vivid-dreamer, recalling episodes I'd only seen in my dreams as if I were present in a different dimension. So I think when enough of those experiences add up, its good to commit them to pen and paper.
