S.M. Blooding lives in Montana with her husband, K.S. King. They write, fight, love, and help raise his two girls, Miss Talk-Talk-Talk and Little Bear! They are also owned by their cat, Tesla.
She enjoys working with fellow authors and writing/working with them when she can. She co-writes with P.K. Tyler, K.S. King, and Alivia Petton. She hopes to fill the world with fabulous stories that touch people. They may not always be the stories people want to feel, but they may be the stories people need to feel.
Through fantasy and science fiction, of course.
P.K. Tyler is the USA Today and Wall Street Journal Best-Selling author of Speculative Fiction and other Genre Bending novels. She’s also published works as Pavarti K. Tyler and had projects under that name appear on the USA TODAY Bestseller’s List.
“Tyler is essentially the indie scene’s Margaret Atwood; she incorporates sci-fi elements into her novels, which deal with topics such as spirituality, gender, sexuality and power dynamics.” – IndieReader
Pav attended Smith College and graduated with a degree in Theatre. She lived in New York, where she worked as a Dramaturge, Assistant Director and Production Manager on productions both on and off-Broadway. Later, Pavarti went to work in the finance industry for several international law firms. Now located in Baltimore Maryland, she lives with her husband, two daughters and two terrible dogs.
Maggie Best lives in Adelaide, South Australia with her husband, youngest son (her daughter and eldest son have flown the nest), two dogs, and three hens. She has long been fascinated by ancient societies, their people and legends, and has travelled to many historical sites around the world to experience them first-hand.
In typical Pisces style, she spends a lot of time day dreaming, reading and imagining alternate realities. Combined with her impressions of other lands, this makes great fodder for her YA fantasy series of gods and mythical creatures as they mess with the lives of a couple of modern Aussie teens.
Her dream now is to share her stories with the world – and any passing aliens.
K.S. King lives in Montana with Frankie Blooding and her bazillion personalities. He tries to maintain his sanity through fiction.
Alivia Patton lives in a castle with her knight in shining armor. Assuming there are castles in Montana and her husband slays dragons while she isn’t looking. Citing a decided lack of medieval grandeur in Montana, Alivia spends her time dreaming of adventures in the Welsh countryside while wearing an epic cape that blows just right on the cliffside winds. Or, writing books while playing keyboard Jenga with three cats and the dog. Her husband does, occasionally, slay dragons.
