Skyla Dawn Cameron
Skyla Dawn Cameron has been writing approximately forever.
Her early storytelling days were spent acting out strange horror/fairy tales with the help of her many dolls, and little has changed except that she now keeps those stories on paper. She signed her first book contract at age twenty-one for River, a unique werewolf tale, which was released to critical and reader praise alike and won her the 2007 EPPIE Award for Best Fantasy. She now has multiple series on the go to keep her busy, which is great for her short attention span. She is also a proud Writer of Unlikable Female Characters™.
Skyla is a fifth generation crazy cat lady who lives in southern Ontario where she writes full time, works as a freelance designer, stabs people with double pointed knitting needles, is an avid gamer, and watches Buffy reruns. If she ever becomes a grownup, she wants to run her own Irish pub, as well as become world dictator.
She probably won’t ever become a grownup, though.

It really isn’t any wonder to her Momma that Dina has loved chronicling the paranormal – writing about vampires, werewolves, ghosts, demons and various other creatures that you don’t want to meet in a dark alley – since junior high school. Her mother still has Dina’s first book – a self-published story done in crayon in the second grade about a unicorn – somewhere in a drawer, which will no doubt be used as a form of blackmail when Dina’s first novel comes out. (Probably to force Dina to edit all the “bad words” out of her manuscript, because her Momma raised her to know better.)
Dina has a novel or ten on her hard drive. Er…on the horizon. She lives in exile on the Oregon Coast with her husband, five cats (she can explain) and a dog. She is currently hard at work writing the next novel in a developing Young Adult series.

Diabolical Behavior Dictator
Adrienne Jones is the author of many strange and delicious books like Brine, Gypsies Stole my Tequila and The Hoax, with more scheduled releases coming down the pipe.
When not reading, writing or watching science fiction, she prefers to be outdoors, especially in the woods, hiking and pondering the weirdness of the universe.

Skye became the black sheep of her university’s literature department when she announced that what she really wanted to do for her senior thesis, instead of writing a thought-provoking essay on the deeper meanings of James Joyce, was to write a romance novel. They gave in, however, and the rest is history. As a result, Skye learned more than she ever thought possible about the inner workings of the publishing industry and off and on, given her schedule, pursued publication of both her senior thesis and other novels she’s written along the way.
Skye has many names and almost as many personalities to go with them. As Melinda Skye, she writes Romantic Suspense, Urban Fantasy, and Young Adult. As Skye Forbes, she may (or may not) have saved the world a few times over. In her real life, under another different name, Skye is a lawyer. And yes, if you ask nicely, she might help keep you out of jail. Or put you in it. It depends on her mood.
Skye lives in California, with her husband, brand new daughter, and menagerie of animals.

Blasphemous Dispensator of Expenditures
From a young age, Seleste’s mom tried to steer her away from stories about witchcraft and monsters and spaceships. Fortunately, she tried to point her toward true crime—which is much scarier. Seleste found solace in the arms of vampires, werewolves, and demons. In no time at all, those true crime stories found their way into her own writing too and she embraced the mayhem. She’s published a short or two with no death, but as a trade-off considers steamy sex a requirement.
As Seleste deLaney, she’s published urban fantasy, steampunk, paranormal romance, and even a contemporary romance. The sex and death thing also bled into her other persona and, as Julie Particka, she writes young adult urban fantasy as well… and mobsters… and post-apocalyptic… and…
Using the scheming powers she learned from her villains—and heroes—she convinced Carina Press, Decadent Publishing, Evernight Publishing, and 1 Place for Romance to publish her devilish tales.

Associate Evil Members
Releaser of the Hellhounds
Frances Pauli writes speculative fiction, usually with touches of humor or romance, which means, of course, that she has trouble choosing sides. She’s always been a rabid fan of things outside the box, odd, weird or unusual, and that trend follows through to her tales which feature aliens, fairies, and even, on occasion, an assortment of humans. Frances eats far too much chocolate, drinks far too little wine and does her best to get the stories out and on paper before they drive her completely insane. More information on her work and upcoming releases can be found on her website: http://francespauli.com
