"DAWN TO DARK" - A COLLECTION OF FAIRY TALE RETELLINGS
Halston James has been imagining love stories since before she was old enough to watch telenovelas with her Mom. She runs on carbs and is convinced her blood consists of pure caffeine. She’s fluent in English, Spanish and song lyrics. For therapy, she likes to ruin the lives of fictitious characters with undiluted glee. Kidding. Mostly. She currently lives in the cupboard under the stairs with her loyal and extremely needy spouse, a labradane who is as neurotic as she is and a mini dachshund that is anything but small. You can find her lurking in dark corners with her laptop and bloodshot eyes.

Sonya’s a nerd—a cool nerd—who loves science, books, make-up and unicorns. She even has unicorn slippers and unicorn plushes adorn her office. It’s not obsession (or so she says), it’s simply an ode to her imaginative side.
She believes in fairytales and in the beautiful things a mind can conjure. She’s a firm believer of empowering the crazy fictional ideas, putting them down on paper (figurative paper because she’s not a fan of writing in notebooks), and letting them flourish into a story.
Don’t believe me? Ask her in any of her social media. She’s all about those connections.

KZ Riley is 29 years old and lives near Lubbock, Texas where the wind blows constantly. She has been married to her husband for seven years and they have two daughters together. She has been an avid reader for as long as she can remember and recently took that love to the next level. First, it started by being an ARC and BETA reader for authors, then she began her own review page to let others know of amazing books she was reading, and finally she came to the ultimate outcome: an author herself. For several years, she played with the idea of writing a story and even jotted down notes and storylines, but never had the courage to finish an idea and publish it. It was with the help from the Penned in Ink group that she put her fears aside and decided to go for it.
