Our Authors

Katie Bartowski

Kati Bartkowski

Kati Bartkowski was originally drawn to illustration before she got swept up in the world of words. Nowadays she's a fan of creating fantastical creatures and feisty heroines in both mediums. If she's not reading, writing, or drawing, she's probably chasing after her high energy little girl. She lives in northern California and is the coauthor of A DASH OF DRAGON and A HINT OF HYDRA.

S. A. Chakraborty

S. A. Chakraborty

S. A. Chakraborty is a speculative fiction writer from New York City. Her debut, THE CITY OF BRASS, is the first book in the Daevabad trilogy. When not buried in books about Mughal miniatures and Abbasid political intrigue, she enjoys hiking, knitting, and recreating unnecessarily complicated medieval meals for her family.

Gwendolyn Clare

Gwendolyn Clare writes science fiction and fantasy. Her debut novel -- INK, IRON, AND GLASS (Macmillan/Imprint) -- is the first in a steampunk duology about a young mad scientist with the ability to write new worlds into existence. Her short stories have appeared in Clarkesworld, Asimov's, Analog, and Beneath Ceaseless Skies, among others, and her poetry has been nominated for the Rhysling Award.

She holds a BA in Ecology, a BS in Geophysics, a PhD in Mycology, and swears she's done collecting acronyms. She lives in central Pennsylvania with too many cats and never enough books.

Heidi Lang

Heidi Lang managed to stumble upon the two best jobs in the world: writing for kids and walking dogs. If she's not out on the trails surrounded by wagging tails and puppy kisses, she's probably hunched over her laptop working on her next book. She is the author of RULES OF THE RUFF, and the coauthor of A DASH OF DRAGON and A HINT OF HYDRA.

Mike Robinson

Mike Robinson

Ever since the household debut of his nine-page sci-fi epic, "The Aliens That Invaded My Backyard!," Mike has been hopelessly lost to the literary sandbox. After his first real sale at 19, he's since published short fiction in over a dozen outlets. To date, he has released nine books, including the most recent, DREAMSHORES.

A native of Los Angeles, he is also an active screenwriter, having penned a short film, Chrysaline, and the forthcoming supernatural feature, Blood Corral. He is a freelance manuscript editor, and co-editor of Literary Landscapes, the official magazine of The Greater Los Angeles Writers Society.

Sherri Cook Woosley

Sherri Cook Woosley has a Master's Degree in English literature. She taught World Mythology and Introduction to Folklore at University of Maryland before shifting her focus to creative writing. Her short fiction has appeared in Pantheon Magazine, Abyss & Apex, and Flash Fiction Magazine.

She lives outside of Baltimore with her family and various combinations of rescued animals (but always a dog). WALKING THROUGH FIRE is her debut novel about Mesopotamian gods and the end-beginning of the world, but mostly about a mother and her son. And a penguin-turtle.
