Christopher Liccardi is a word slinger living in New Jersey and overlord of TheDarkerHalf.com.
He spends his free time conjuring up tales to distract him from his day job as a Security Analyst
at a large media company in New York.
Seeing the world around him through the eyes of a fiction writer, he has created more than
three hundred stories of various lengths ranging from horror to comedy.
Born and raised in Amsterdam, Bobby Salomons’ works are as authentic and distinguishing
as the city itself. A tense and mysterious atmosphere combined with a vivid and capturing
writing style make his stories a pleasure to read and hard to forget. From a young age he
was drawn to creative and inspiring works, striking up a true passion for writing in college.
Ever since he has steadily developed himself as a writer, working as a script doctor and
faithfully penning down his soon to be released debut series: “DEATH 2 DEATH”. With a
background in Art-Direction (advertising) and Copy Writing, Bobby is boldly undertaking
the effort of establishing himself amongst his writing peers with the humor and sober-
headedness expected from a Dutchman.
To understand Sheila Hall’s unique writing one has to know her equally unique background. Born
on a US Military base in Germany and grew up moving from place to place – all this giving her the
opportunity to see things of the world otherwise left uncovered which today reflects in her
expressive and thrilling writing style.
She went to college, switched majors several times, and decided that learning was much more fun
than getting the actual degree.
Today she is an able book reviewer who owns more books than the average small town library,
with works ranging from Urban Fantasy to Classic Literature. With her ability to read through
complete books in just a few short hours, she has wrought her soul into the minds of great authors
and endless stream of literary works.
Now Sheila is venturing into the world as an expressive writer of warm and emotional Erotic- and
General-literature, using her gifts and past experiences to awe whomever may read it.

Mari Wells is a wife and homeschooling mom of four children. She steals moments in the chaos of being
a stay-at-homeschooling mom to write or love the social media monster. She wakes before dawn to
write her short stories or work on one of her many novels. She’s still awake late into the night researching
or working on blog posts.
Aly Ann Morlock is a nineteen-year young writer from Upstate New York. Embracing
her ‘individuality’ (also known as her ‘being weird’), she has broken into the world of
colored hair, piercings, and tattoos while never quite fitting into the stereotype so
kindly placed upon people that choose to do the same.
Always a reader, Aly has been writing since she can remember; her first stories were
written about her cats and the adventures that brought them to live with her. Since
then, she has moved through young writing and a terrible fantasy phase to settle on
writing realistic fiction and some sci-fi.
One personal goal of Aly’s is to give her readers a believable, realistic tale, even when
writing a world different from our own; creating characters that aren’t perfect and
stories that tell truths that are buried by society. Unafraid of the dark and dirty topics
but also working to see the good around us, she tries to encompass all of humanity not just the parts we wish to see, hoping to open
the minds of her readers to what’s really out there.
She is currently editing her first novel On the Path to Perfection, a story about a sixteen year old and his physical and mental journey to
find peace after a traumatic past and (sometimes) present and eventually hopes to publish that work.
Gabi Daniels is originally from Chicago and now lives in the Southeast with her husband and two
young children. More specifically, Knoxville, TN. To her Yankee friends, this fact is a bottomless pit
of hillbilly jokes, requests for banjo playing and stupid questions. For example; do you even have a
Walmart there? Do you live in a cabin? When are you getting a goat? From Gabi’s fashionista friends;
How far do you have to drive to get to a “real” mall?
Gabi enjoys skiing, hiking, volunteering, organizing and cleaning. She will not partake in any form of
gossip and works out religiously.
Okay, so that’s bull. She sits in front of her computer in yoga pants, hair up in a ponytail, and writes
romance novels. Gabi reads at least three books a week and runs a blog where she talks about all
things books. She also has a secret stash of chocolate chip cookie dough in the freezer for emergencies.
