His Deacon Chalk: Occult Bounty Hunter series is a thrill ride spilling over with violence and mayhem. @JamesTuckwriter Jenn Bennett:Jenn Bennett writes the Arcadia Bell urban fantasy series for Pocket Books, which features a tiki bar, magic, demons, a pirate mustache, and dirty romance. She lives near Atlanta with one husband and two evil pugs. Visit her at Rachel Aaron:Hello, my name is Rachel Aaron, and I write the Legend of Eli Monpress series for Orbit Books! I was born and raised in Atlanta, but I currently live a lovely, nerdy, bookish life in Athens, GA with my two-year-old son, loving husband, and small, fat dog. I write full time, all the time, but when my husband can drag me away from my own books, I love reading fantasy (urban and traditional), Romance (paranormal and Regency), and Science Fiction (all kinds). I also enjoy video games, anime, manga, hanging out at conventions, and very overdone, epic things.Besides my own books, the internet knows me best for writing very fast. The best way to get to know me is probably to read my blog or follow me on Twitter or Facebook. You can find links to all of these, as well as free samples of all my work, at!Twitter @Rachel_Aaron Alex Hughes:Alex has written since early childhood, and loves great stories in any form including scifi, fantasy, and mystery. Over the years, Alex has lived in many neighborhoods of the sprawling metro Atlanta area. Decatur, the neighborhood on which Clean is centered, was Alex's college home.On any given week you can find Alex in the kitchen cooking gourmet Italian food, watching hours of police procedural dramas, and typing madly.Can't get enough? More bio info (including links to short stories!) here: @ahugheswriter Janice Hardy:Janice Hardy is the author of the fantasy trilogy THE HEALING WARS, where she tapped into her own dark side to create a world where healing was dangerous, and those with the best intentions often made the worst choices. Her books include THE SHIFTER, BLUE FIRE, and DARKFALL from Balzer+Bray/Harper Collins. She also blogs about and teaches writing at The Other Side of the Story. You can visit her online or via Twitter @Janice_Hardy. Kalayna Price:USA Today Bestselling urban fantasy author Kalayna Price writes the Alex Craft Novels and the Novels of Haven.
