˛-✫¸-Leeds 2018 author announcement-˚-˚

 

We are pleased to welcome A P Bateman to the Leeds 2018 event!

 

Amazon #1 bestselling author of The Ares Virus, The Contract Man, Lies & Retribution and The Town.
Previously published author, ex-bodyguard and private investigator, hard-working business owner and family man.

ABOUT ME

I enjoy reading all sorts of crime, mysteries and thrillers. The stories I write are exactly the kind of books I would like to read. I also enjoy watching most types of films depending on my mood, some favourites being most of Hitchcock’s work, classic westerns, most Clint Eastwood offerings, James Bond and anything with Steve McQueen. I enjoy tv murder mysteries especially period dramas from Agatha Christie and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Writing has always been my dream job, especially as a secret agent astronaut, deep sea diving cowboy doesn’t really exist. I have had a wide variety of careers (actually pretty rubbish jobs) including chef, hotel manager, surfboard shaper, antique dealer and private investigator/bodyguard.

The bodyguard bit was a little more serious and I trained in close protection with ex-military, police and special forces. I have also trained on US SWAT ranges in the past with serving police officers which I feel gives a unique insight into weapons and tactics which adds realism to my writing.

I have studied karate on and off most of my life and still enjoy training, shoot clay pigeons and big scary paper targets with very loud guns and surf when I can.

Between being a business owner and constant writer I still manage to find time to provide an unpaid taxi and entertainment service to my two young children and their many friends.

From the editor

A P Bateman has reached the no1 position on Amazon in the following categories: Military, Techno-thriller and Horror. His books are in Amazon Kindle’s top 5% of most completed reads, a statistic that he takes as the most important of his career. “I want to write stories that people love to read. I once tossed a book into the ocean because it was woefully slow. I never want to be that author. And I’ll do without the awards and fortune if it means I can keep the reader engaged and make them wish they had another of my stories to read…”

˜”*°•✫★ 2019 Leeds Author Announcement

We are pleased to welcome Melissa J Rutter to the Leeds 2019 event!
 cf35b2_c9e80ba505cb4d18970aba7cbf672673~mv2.jpg
I write, I read, I write, did I menttion I write?? If I am not writing I am thinking about writing, sad but true. I have books on Amazon and new books on the horizon. I want to take you to another world.
If you like fantasy you might like my book page for I, Immortal 🙂

A few lines about me, I was born on the south coast of the UK in a resort town called Bournemouth. Where I grew up with my mother and two brothers. In 1997 I went to New Hampshire in the USA to be an Au Pair and where I studied creative writing at the Manchester School of Art.

I have been writing since I was sixteen, my first story took me ten years to finish and I have yet to work on it to make anywhere near ready to push that Publish button. I signed with a publishing house in 2012 and published seven of my books with them. The house closed in 2015 and I have been self-publishing ever since.

I have several series out, I, Immortal The Series is an Angel series and is currently of 3 books. The Season Series is a 4 book romance series, the last is about to be published. Lunar Ryce soul Collector series is also at 3 books and number 4 dropping very soon. This is a YA series, though seems popular with all ages. I write rock star romances and thrillers, mysteries and gangster novels. As you can see I like to write for different genres and always have something in the works.

I enjoy reading when I have the time as I do work as well as write. I am a mother and a wife and sometimes the weeks all blend together, I wake up on Monday and blink to find it’s already Friday. The writing world has taught me so much and at the same time, brought me so many new friends, I feel blessed to have in my life, from PA’s to cover designers, from fellow authors to bloggers, amazing people and a real treasure trove in such a cut-throat industry.

Thank you for taking the time to read about me, please look me up on Twitter and Facebook and say Hi!

We are pleased to welcome Laura Rossi to the Leeds 2019 event!
16683933_1825453844388888_1901281496651545351_n.jpg

 

 

Hi! My name is Laura Rossi and I am a dreamer, the kind that walks around all day and likes to go back and forth, from the real world to her own little world.

I have two kids and a fantastic partner. We work together in our little pharmacy in Italy.

After travelling around the world with my family and living abroad a few years, I graduated in Criminology and Psychology in London and worked with juvenile offenders for two years, before moving back to Italy.

I’ve been writing since I was thirteen but never published any of my manuscripts until 2016, when I completed Counterpoints book 1 after many happy, sleepless nights.

I am allergic to staticism, I cannot sit still. I love to travel and meet new people. When I am not busy working or being a mommy, you can find me at a car race event (I am a big Formula one fan) or at a rock gig, or on the beach fantasizing about new character and new stories I’d like to write.

A note from Kirsty ….

I’m a full-time writer of books that (I hope) will make people laugh, escape and feel brilliant. Sometimes I get obsessed with things. Mostly comedy, American TV, booze, glitter, memoirs, perfume, books about cool lasses, typography, Saturday Night Live, my dog Charlie (the greatest dog in town), happy people, unexpected adventures and cheese.

​I LOVE hearing from happy readers. I really do. It’s good for my ego. Jk. Kind of. Seriously, though, I have made some lovely friends out of people who have found me via my books. And there’s nothing nicer than having a ‘hello’ with the guys who make it possible for you to do what you do. press one of the links  below to reach me on Facebook, Or my website. I also send out a cool newsletter with giveaways, promotions and news about upcoming books . There’s a gigantic bar at the top of my home-page with the sign up link. There’s a picture of a pug next to it. You can’t miss it. 🙂
Look forward to seeing you all in Leeds!
