Lisa King is a writer, researcher, nap enthusiast, and cat lover. She is continually inspired by underdog protagonists, unlikely friendships, and creative ways to (fictionally) end humanity. Her most recent book Blue Haven is a “psychological thriller that’s full of surprises and confronts the dangers of artificial happiness.” (Kirkus Reviews)
Jennifer Jacquelyn lives on a farm with her family of humans, chickens, and one goat! She enjoys writing, gardening, hiking, swimming and deep conversations (anything but small talk!). Although Burning the White Picket Fence is her first book, her poetry has been included in magazines and anthologies.
Ginger Bolton also writes under the name Janet Bolin and has a series of mystery novels under each pen name! She is very fond of donuts, coffee, and coffee shops that encourage people to linger and chat. Double Grudge Donuts, number 8 in the Deputy Donut Mystery series is being released on February 20, 2024 and she is working on #9 and #10 in the series!
Bev Irwin started her writing career at the age of 8 with the publication of her poem about daffodils. Years later, when an injury gave her more time to delve into writing she began a writing career that now boasts four novels, various screenplays, poems, and short stories.
