Rose Garcia is a lawyer turned writer who’s always been fascinated by science fiction and fantasy. From a very young age, she often had her nose buried in books about other-worlds, fantastical creatures, and life and death situations. More recently she’s been intrigued by a blend of science fiction and reality, and the idea that some supernatural events are, indeed, very real.
Rose’s books feature gut-wrenching emotional turmoil and heart-stopping action. Rose is known for bringing richly diverse characters to life as she draws on her own cultural experiences. Rose lives in Houston with her hubs, two kids, and two furry babies.

Alison Ingleby is a USA Today bestselling author of sci-fi and fantasy fiction. She loves writing cross-genre books featuring complex characters, twisting plots and fast-paced action with a dash of romance.
When not writing, Alison enjoys reading, drinking tea and spending time outdoors. She lives in Yorkshire, England, but her heart loiters by the sea in north-west Scotland.
Kristin is a non-recovering chocolate and Pinterest addict who loves to read speculative fiction. You can find her most often indulging in all three of these things at 2 am (sometimes with a proper English show playing on the television in the background).
She also writes epic fantasy (including epic middle grade fiction… which she likes to think will be a thing) when she’s not toting her kids around to sports practices or trying to talk her husband into remodeling her kitchen.
Clarissa has degrees in problem solving and managing information, both of which she uses as best as she can in her writing. She now lives in the Netherlands with her family, where she writes as much as they will let her.
She has always lived more in the world of daydream and fiction, and dreamed of writing and publishing her own stories. She writes stories about the transition from childhood to adulthood. About people finding their place in their world. She enjoys the puzzle of creating a new world and tying that into a story. Her writing spans genres from historical to science fiction, focusing on the characters and their development.
