She has had her poetry in Poet and Geek, Rain Dogs, Eclectic Eel issues 1,2&3, Ether Books, Brevity Poetry Review, and included in the poetry anthology, ‘The Universe Inside’.
She writes a blog – ‘Poetry Musings’ at www.jadekennedypoet.blogspot.co.uk.
Jane Risdon began writing seriously three years ago after a life spent in the International Music Industry where she managed recording artists, record producers and songwriters from all over the world.
Putting her own wishes to write on hold throughout her Music career had unseen benefits in that she has garnered a wealth of material for her stories. She now has time to write crime and mysteries and has three novels on the go at the moment. Another is a co-written novel with an award winning author and which she hopes will be published in 2014.
Jane has also had short stories published in various anthologies in aid of charity and has another anthology due out in 2014 involving authors from across the globe. She also writes flash fiction and her short stories and flash fiction stories have been published and pod-cast on the internet frequently. These stories are often, but not always, crime related and she often writes humorous short stories based on her observations of characters she has met or knew in the past – heavily disguised of course.
Married to a musician and being involved in the Music Industry for many years, travelling and living in many countries including SE Asia, China, USA and Europe, Jane draws on all her experiences for her writing.

At 48, Angela comes late (her words!) to the joys of creative writing, but has always been an avid reader. She is self-employed with a background in corporate HR and coaching and more recently copywriting work.
At some point she’d love to give it all up and earn a vast sum of money writing best-selling novels, although this may be a little way away as her first novel is still in production.
She lives in Nantwich, Cheshire with her husband, a very demanding cat and a sulky chicken called Sukie. She set up and contributes to a writing group at her local library which is just about to celebrate its first anniversary.
If you’d like to read more of her work, you can find her under the alibi Girlkatski on www.burrst.com and also through the following links:
If you’d like to connect with her you can find her on Twitter @secondstepcoach or you can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Joy was born on a farm in Wisconsin and still love barns and the smell of silage (“an acquired taste,” she says). She lived in Boston after graduating from college, and is now back in Florida (not retired) where she spent some of her childhood.
After selling wildlife habitat in the country, she bought a foreclosure earlier this year and had to replace the kitchen, among other things. They’d even taken the kitchen sink! Thanks to NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), which takes place each November, Joy’s now written three novels. She has three blogs:

- Her media blog: http://pagadan.livejournal.com
- Her house blog: http://pagadan.blogspot.com
