Now a little about the authors of the three longer pieces…
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 those and her longer short 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.
You can find out more about Jane and her writing from:
Jade Kennedy is a writer of poetry, prose, flash fiction and a collector of borrowed expressions. She lives in East Yorkshire, England. She has had her poetry in various ezines including 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 – ‘Borrowed Expressions’ at www.jadekennedywriter.blogspot.co.uk and she is now looking to find more homes for her flash fiction.

Christopher Farley. He lived a sheltered life in the wilds of Kent from where he was saved by the written word. So much so that he still corresponds with certain people with a pen and paper!!
Upon moving to London, a bit like Dick Whittington, searching for streets of gold, he happened upon a beautiful Italian lady who later decided to take him to the sunny realm of southern Switzerland, where he can still be found, smiling inanely, continuously in search of Weissbier.
When he is not working or drinking he sits in front of the computer, searching for fictional inspiration. You can find Chris via his blogs http://christopherfarley.wordpress.com and http://talkingtosh.wordpress.com.
