Born and raised in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, I've been writing short stories ever since I learned to put sentences together. When it finally dawned on me that the market for speculative fiction is in fact non-existent in Holland, I switched to the English language and promptly sold my first story for a whopping 10 dollars. A few years later, a California friend of mine alerted me to the Writers of the Future contest, and I wrote 'Conversation' which went on to achieve published finalist status in 2003.

BACK TO THE AUTHORS

Paul Crilley was born in Scotland but moved to South Africa when he was thirteen and has lived there for the past fifteen years. He always knew he wanted to be a writer so drifted aimlessly from job to job so he would have something to list in his bio. Some of those jobs are: ceramic horse airbrush artist, satellite installer, signwriter, co-owner of a stable yard, barman, greeting card illustrator and book cover artist. He writes fantasy, science fiction, comic scripts, and magic realism. He lives in a small village called Hillcrest with Caroline, his partner of nine years, seven cats, and two dogs.

"Echo of Silence" was his first professional publication. His second story, "And I Will Sing A Lullaby," will appear in the DAW books anthology, I, Alien in 2004. He is currently working on a fantasy novel with fellow South African writer, Dave Freer.

BACK TO THE AUTHORS

Diana Pharaoh Francis grew up on a cattle ranch in Northern California where she taught herself to ride a horse at the age of six. Afraid of heights, and absolutely sure she was going to die, she managed to scramble up on the back of a very patient and lazy strawberry roan destrier, and plod off into the sunset.

Thereafter, she spent much of her early life on horseback, or so far buried into a book that the rest of the world ceased to exist (much to the annoyance of her family). She currently teaches English at the University of Montana-Western. She is married with a three-year-old son.

Her next novel, Path of Honor, will be published in 2004, and takes up the story of Reisil and her friends. Incidentally, the Pharaoh is in fact her real name, and oddly enough, is of British origin.

She resides with John, her fabulously supportive husband, Sammy the Ancient White Wonderdog, and a youthful Yorkie called Sir Darby Scamp the Rascal Ratslayer. She's a Compuserve IMP, a member of Edmonton's Cult of Pain (nothing leathery about this writers group so don't call with offers of servitude unless it involves reshingling my house) and sometimes a science teacher.

BACK TO THE AUTHORS

Although born in Texas, I was mostly raised on a half-mile wide strip of sand on the east coast of Florida, between the ocean and a tidal river. After three moves in four years when I was a teenager, we ended up on a wider bit of sand, without the water: New Mexico. I still live there, in a small handmade, off-the-grid house some miles west of Albuquerque, where the wind blows more often than not.

I work when I have to, build and sing and garden when I get to choose. And write.

She was finally forced out of the writers' closet when she received her Masters in Creative Writing from the University of Montana. She published The Goose Girl, her first book, soon thereafter.

Currently Shannon makes her home in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, with her super-human husband and their pet, a small plastic pig.
