  • Alicia writes a variety of genres, among them, paranormal and romantic suspense. She creates spine-chilling stories that keep readers on the edge of their seats. She is a ridiculously huge Elvis Presley fan, and avid fan of MLB and NFL. If you look closely, you’ll see a reference to one or all three in pretty much everything she writes. Ha! If she could, she would divide all her time between writing and watching her favorite television shows—such as Dexter, Vampire Diaries, Justified, and True Blood, along with a lot of the older classics; I Love Lucy, Leave it to Beaver, both Bob Newhart shows, etc. Some of her favorite authors include Stephen King, Dennis Lehane, Michael Connelly, Lee Child, and Lisa Gardner just to name a few.

  • Amanda wrote her first romance at the age of sixteen--a vast historical epic starring all her friends as the characters, written secretly during algebra class (and her parents wondered why math was not her strongest subject...)

    She's never since used algebra, but her books have been nominated for many awards, including the RITA Award, the Romantic Times BOOKReviews Reviewers' Choice Award, the Booksellers Best, the National Readers Choice Award, and the Holt Medallion. She lives in Oklahoma with a menagerie of two cats, a Pug, and a very bossy miniature Poodle, along with far too many books.

    When not writing or reading, she loves taking dance classes, collecting cheesy travel souvenirs, and watching the Food Network--even though she doesn't cook.

  • Krysta Scott is a family law attorney in her false life. After years of writing and winning contests, she is now taking the plunge into publishing. A fan of sci-fi and dark stories surrounding people in crisis, she also enjoys way too much tv including Vampire Diaries, Breaking Bad, and Sherlock. As a result of much coaxing by her friends, she decided to write a 20’s romantic suspense as her breakout story.
