Meet the Scribes



Shauna Granger

Like so many other writers, Shauna grew up as an avid reader, but it was in high school that she realized she wanted to be a writer. Five years ago, Shauna started work on her Elemental Series. She released the first installment, Earth, on May 1, 2011 and has since released four sequels, with the series coming to an end with Spirit. Her Post-Apocalyptic Fantasy, The Ash and Ruin Trilogy, will come to a close in 2015, the first two books are out now.

Kristin McFarland

As a kid, Kristin McFarland was a huge nerd who carried her first, handwritten fantasy novel around with her in a gigantic binder so that
she could work on it during her free time. These days, she still writes fantasy, but no longer writes by hand. She has a Master’s Degree in Journalism from Indiana University and covered political beats for four different newspapers around the country before wising up and deciding to concentrate on novel writing. She lives in Bloomington, Indiana with her husband and two very ill-behaved tabby cats. Kristin is represented by Jessica Negrón of Talcott Notch Literary Services.

2015Emmie Mears

Emmie Mears is an author, actor, and person of fannish pursuits. Born in Texas, the Lone Star state quickly spit her out after a measly three months, and over eight states and three different countries, Emmie became a proper vagabond. She speaks four languages and holds a degree in history. She writes science fiction and fantasy and loves to weave in sociological and psychological threads through her novels…which was probably not what her university professors had in mind for using her degree. Emmie is the head of a pride of cats in the suburbs of DC, and she’s pretty sure at least one of them thinks she’s its mother. Slightly obsessed with Buffy and Supernatural, Emmie haunts the convention circuits and joins in when she can on panels and general tomfoolery. She is the author of SHRIKE: THE MASKED SONGBIRD (2014) and STORM IN A TEACUP (2015). Emmie is open to bribery in the form of sushi and bubble tea.

Emmie is represented by Sara Megibow of kt literary.

Lyra Selene

Lyra Selene was born under a full moon and has never quite managed to wipe the moonlight out of her eyes.

Lyra grew up on a steady diet of Lloyd Alexander, Susan Cooper and Ursula K. LeGuin, dreaming of fantastic worlds both near and far. Her first novel, written when she was eight, followed exiled warrior princess Jade and her unicorn companion as they braved the deeps of the Forbidden Forest in search of the Lost Wizard Bendar. These days, Lyra writes young adult urban fantasy. She is inspired by world mythology, brooding landscapes, and the alchemy of love.

Liv Rancourt

I write romance: m/f, m/m, and v/h, where the h is for human and the v is for vampire … or sometimes demon … I lean more towards funny than angst. When I’m not writing I take care of tiny premature babies or teenagers, depending on whether I’m at work or at home. My husband is a soul of patience, my dog’s cuteness is legendary, and we share the homestead with three ferrets. Who steal things. Because they’re brats.

I can be found on-line at all hours of the day and night at my website ( & blog (, on Facebook (, or on Twitter ( For sneak peeks and previews and other assorted freebies, go HERE to sign up for my mailing list.

Come find me. We’ll have fun!

J.ScottJennah Scott

Jennah Scott resides Kansas City, Missouri. Until she
started writing she didn’t know what she wanted to be. Which is why she has degrees in education, business, and medical assisting. All that uncertainty has provided her with plenty of ideas for new books. Her books span across the spectrum when it comes to genre. Her contemporary books are available now, but soon she’ll be genre jumping and diving head first into paranormal. When she isn’t writing she’s causing trouble on Twitter, hanging out with family, or she’s lost in
a book. There’s one thing about Jennah, there will never be a dull moment when she’s around.

me_hatMandy Pietruszewski

When Mandy was a teenager, she decided the best way to become an awesome Science Fiction writer was to become an engineer. Two degrees later, Mandy is a bonafide Rocket Scientist. She’s still working on the awesome SF/F writer thing. When not writing or playing with satellites, Mandy can be found buried under a pile of comics, movies, and books taller than she is–which frankly isn’t very tall.
