Eilis Flynn has had a slew of jobs that at first glance don’t seem to belong together. She’s worked at a comic book company, a couple of Wall Street brokerage firms, a wire service, and a magazine for futurists. But then she’s also dined with a former British prime minister and a famous economist, can claim family ties to the emperor of Japan (but then can’t we all?) and the president of a major telecommunications company, worked at most of the buildings of the World Trade Centers, stalked actress Katharine Hepburn (for one block), and met her husband when he asked her to sign a comic book. With all these experiences (all of which are true!), what else could she do but start writing stories to make use of all that? She’s written a variety of things that also don’t seem to belong together, but they do: comic book stories both online and in print, scholarly works in a previous life as a scholar, book reviews and interviews, and articles about finance (at odds with her anthropology background), before settling down to write romantic fantasies about the reality beyond what we can see.
Eilis lives in verdant Washington state with her equally fantastical husband and spoiled rotten cats. She was written Superman family stories for DC Comics (as Elizabeth Smith). Her first four books, The Sleeper Awakes, Festival of Stars, Introducing Sonika, and Echoes of Passion, are available at Amazon (of course). Her latest comic book story, “30-Day Guarantee,” is available at http://www.myromancestory.com.
USA Today Best-selling author Alexis Morgan has always loved reading and now spends her days imagining worlds filled with strong alpha heroes and gutsy heroines. She is the author of more than thirty books, novellas, and short stories that span a variety of genres: American West historicals (as Pat Pritchard); paranormal and fantasy romances; and most recently, contemporary romance. Alexis has been nominated for numerous industry awards, including the RITA© from the Romance Writers of America, the top award in the romance genre.

Victoria’s work on Amazon
Victoria Pond reads and writes speculative fiction and fantasy with an erotic twist. Her short stories have been published by Circlet Press and Sizzler Editions, and she’s recently edited her first anthology of amazing writers (Coffee: HotI). She’s excited to be part of the electronerotica (it’s a word now, okay?) movement and uses her editrix’s eye on just about everything.
