Jody Cleven

Passionate educator. Author of middle grade fiction. Log-cabin dweller.
It’s a bit of a cliche to say that authors write what they know, but I’ve got to agree. I write what I know, and I know kids. After years of teaching kids, instructing adults to teach kids, and raising three kids of my own, I come by it naturally. I know about kids’ drama. I know about kids’ fears. I know about kids’ hopes and dreams. My experiences as a teacher, school administrator, professor, and mother from North Carolina inform, to the very fiber, the stories I write to entertain kids of all ages—and their teachers, professors, and parents as well! My Latest Release

Christian Warren Freed

Retired US Army soldier who loves writing, reading, fine cigars, and better bourbon.
I've always known I was destined to be a writer. The road was never easy, and it was filled with bumps, but I never shied away from the challenge. I can comfortably say I've made every mistake possible (fingers crossed) and have come through a stronger, better, and more determined writer. With over 25 science fiction and fantasy novels, my combat memoirs, a children's story, and several shorts in publication, I feel I am finally coming into my own. But I merely create. You the readers are the ones who determine my success or failure.
