Chris Kennedy (Micro-motivity)

Chris Kennedy lives in Hampshire and works for a modern communications company when he isn’t typing or researching for his master’s degree. He took up writing at the insistence of his wonderful wife and three clever children so that he could ‘stop annoying them.’ Once he started he found he couldn’t stop. His perfect holiday is a sunny Mediterranean beach as close as possible to the last remains of an ancient civilization. That’s where he gets his ideas.

Yvette O’Kay (Eternal Life) 

Yvette O’Kay has been writing ever since she was a little girl. She is from New York and this is her very first publication. Yvette is a full time student and author and often has trouble balancing the two, but in the end the satisfaction of finishing a story outweighs anything else for her.

Blake Parker (the truth)

Blake Parker is of the female gender, since the name itself doesn’t give that away. Physically, she resides in Canada. Otherwise, she lives in the contrivance of whatever place she’s wanting to visit – like Oslo. At times, Blake’s love of travel merges her imagination with reality. In day-to-day life, Blake loves paradoxes. For example, the paradox of supporting her obsession with scotch on a limited budget. Or the paradox of running her own business as a social media consultant while, to the chagrin of her friends, never actually using social media for personal use. Somewhere, in between the paradoxes and fantasy of living in far-away places, Blake finds the time, and enjoyment, to write. Connect with Blake on Twitter @iwrotethis_

John Rickett (One More Level)
