“I make time to write because it’s a passion.  Writing is the only way to make the characters in my mind a reality.” Laura Carter

About Laura

As a child, Laura would make up plays to perform with her sister and counsins at her grandparents’ house. She enrolled in drama school and piano classes, plotting, performing, writing lyrics to songs. In school, she wrote screenplays and stories. She can remember blushing at her first use of an expletive. Safe to say, Laura has always had a flare for the dramatic.

At some point in her late teens, sensibility won out and Laura enrolled in law school. She studied Law at the University of Durham, then studied for a diploma in Legal Practice and became a master of International Trade Law.

When her student days came to an end, Laura spent time travelling the world, indulging in new sights, sounds, people and cultures. She kept a daily travel journal and wrote snippets of her adventures for family and friends back home. It was on Bondi Beach when Laura was living in Sydney, Australia, that she picked up a tatty notepad and pencil and began writing her first novel (now safely tucked away in a drawer).

When her legal career brought her back to London, England, the writing bug bit Laura again and she found an idea that stuck. From a small bedroom in the city, Gregory Ryans and Scarlett Heath were born in book 1 of the Vengeful Love trilogy (romantic suspense).

Not content with staying in one place, Laura moved with her husband and dog to the Caribbean, where she continued to write and published Scarred by You (romantic suspense).

Mother Nature intervened with Hurricane Irma and sent Laura and her family to Jersey (UK Channel Islands), where she released her romantic comedy series, Brits in Manhattan.

˜”*°•✫★ 2019 Leeds Author Announcement

We are very Pleased to welcome Natasha Preston to the Leeds 2019 signing!

ABOUT NATASHA

My name is Natasha, but most people call me Tash or Tasha. I don’t mind either. I was born in England and have lived in small towns and villages out in the countryside ever since.

My husband, Joseph, is the most supportive person in my life. Without his love, help and patience I wouldn’t be where I am today. I’m a proud mummy to two amazing little boys who are my whole world.

At school I drifted through, achieving average grades. I fell into administration and receptionist jobs, thinking that I couldn’t really do anything else.

In 2010 I stumbled into writing completely by accident. I was searching the ‘app store’ and came across Wattpad – an amateur writing site. For the first few months I just read, but then I decided to type out some of the ideas swirling around in my head. I’m so glad I did because I love creating new stories.

Writing gave me an escape and Wattpad gave me the confidence I lacked.

Please can we give an enormous Darker welcome to Helen Claire Gould 
11893865_532332766921863_6547226049888047867_o

I have been writing since my teens, having read my first two Science Fiction novels at the age of nine.

Shortly after suffering some miscarriages in 1992 I began writing for therapeutic reasons. I joined a British Science Fiction Association Orbiter, then a Cassandra one, then became administrator for a third. I had joined the Peterborough SF Club, where I met my husband, and contributed to the club fanzine A Change of Zinery. I set up the Peterborough Science fiction writers’ Group, editing two small press collections of short fiction, Shadows on a Broken Wall and Mother Milk, Father Flywheel. I organised a weekend workshop on writing for comics and had book reviews published in the BSFA review magazine, Vector.

In 1995 I returned to full-time education. After graduating from Anglia Ruskin University in Geology and Planetary science in 2000, I taught Geology and Creative Writing evening classes, and edited further collections of short fiction by my Creative Writing students. From 2004 – 2006, I contributed geological articles to Deposits, an amateur magazine with high production values. I organised and ran a series of writers’ workshops for the 2013 Peterborough Arts Festival.

Floodtide is my first published novel, but I have several more novels and short stories, most of which are set in my own fictional universe.

Please can we give an  enormous Darker welcome to Rudi Jennings

38918445_10155518850857343_8802595323521269760_o

Rudi Michael Jennings spent the majority of his childhood growing up in the Norfolk countryside of fields and trees, really living amongst nature and possibly giving the basis of description in his book. Through travel, various professions and a keen interest in psychology and fantasy writings, he developed a style of his very own and is keen to share it with the fantasy adventure world.

This plans to be the first instalment and adventure of many to come.

27907580_1846955678679559_5643802036280446492_o

About the Book

The Last Myon is a story of fantasy adventure, revenge and an individual’s total unwillingness to submit or to fail, battling against overwhelming natural elements and a group of hardened, sadistic creatures who will stop at nothing to succeed in his capture and slavery.

In an everlasting winter world, Ackrehm, the last of his Myon kind, must fight for his life, sustaining multiple injuries along the way and still demonstrating he truly is a force to be reckoned with. Struggling with exhaustion, both mentally and physically, will he manage to overcome, or will he fight or flee?

One thing is for certain, The Last Myon will keep you hooked until the very end, bonding with characters and excitedly reading on with an obsession to find out what happens next, promoting an ethos to take away of never give up, never surrender.
