Meet Doc. For most of my life, when people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I said I was going to be a writer. There was never any doubt in my mind about that. Still, there was one thing I liked more than writing and that was reading. I relished the moments I spent at the library, carefully selecting books, and then taking them home and reading them late into the night. The years I spent studying English literature and creative writing helped me appreciate the art of writing. I enjoy recognizing what makes for good writing, both in my own work and in other works-in-progress. I graduated from Brigham Young University in English Literature and am currently working at the local public library, where I’ve worked since my first year in college.
Meet Rolark. I’m a book fanatic who also enjoys writing and was once attacked by an octopus. True story! Anyway, I spend at least a couple hours each day writing and have found that the only way to be a good writer is to read, read, read. I don’t want to spend all my money on books (well, actually I do, but I have to eat) and so I’ve delved into the world of e-books. Naturally I encounter many self-published works, and as a fellow writer I want to help. When I’m not reading, writing, or helping other writers, I like to sleep or hang out with my husband. I graduated from Brigham Young University in Public Relations and have worked for real estate groups, software companies, laundromats, and a fiction magazine. Thanks for reading my little bio 😉
Meet Um the Muse. I’ve been told that my first word in English was “book.” I’ve devoured hundreds of books of different types (not literally, at least not for years). I enjoy light fiction, urban fantasy, the occasional mystery, and superhero serials. I’ve even recently learned to enjoy non-fiction, though I won’t review them here since I’m not competent to judge the validity of their facts. I graduated from the University of Colorado Colorado Springs [sic] in Economics and still reside in Colorado Springs, CO.
