Adorno, Daniel
Daniel Adorno
Daniel Adorno is an author of novels based in the science fiction and fantasy genres. He began writing back in 4th grade when his teacher assigned everyone to craft a short book with construction paper. Daniel was up to the task and wrote a book on race cars worthy of a Pulitzer. Before he was a teenager, his father bought him a typewriter for his birthday and Daniel started writing a sequel to the original race car story, which he titled The Hot Rod. Unfortunately, the book was never published, but Daniel discovered a love for writing from that first story and he continued to write short stories throughout high school and into college. His first completed manuscript was a fantasy story that he finished during finals week of his sophomore year in college. For 8 years, the novel sat in limbo waiting to be edited and then Daniel placed in the top five of a local writing contest. Everything changed. He dusted off the novel and a year later his debut novel, The Blade Heir, was published on Amazon.

Daniel currently resides in Minnesota with his wife and son. Besides writing, Daniel enjoys reading speculative fiction, creating digital art, and teaching Sunday school students at his church.

Byrd, Lavay
Lavay Byrd
Lavay Byrd is a young independent author since she wrote her first book, The Miraculous Birth, 2010. For as long as she can remember, Byrd has always had a love for horses, yet she cherishes an even stronger devotion as “a Follower of Jesus Christ”, which all began when she was only five years old. Her gift of story-telling surfaced only a couple years later as she would re-tell some of her favorite Bible stories through illustrations with her family and friends. As time went on, her God-given talent to write creatively continued to improve as she took courses relating to “creative writing” from middle-school to college.

Today, she lives in Newnan, GA with her family, still exploring the “fictional worlds” of her books and making plans to continue her studies in college. She is even holding on to her life-long dream that God will one day bless her with her very own horse.

Hutchinson, Robert J.
Robert J. Hutchinson
Robert J. Hutchinson has been a professional writer and author his entire adult life, working both for Christian publications, such as Christianity Today and U.S. Catholic, and for secular magazines and newspapers. He was once the managing editor of Hawaii Magazine and the Hawaii Bureau Chief for The Hollywood Reporter. Hutchinson attended Catholic schools, studied philosophy and French as an undergraduate, moved to Israel to learn Hebrew, and earned an M.A. in New Testament from Fuller Theological Seminary.

His new book, Searching for Jesus: New Discoveries in the Quest for Jesus of Nazareth---and How They Confirm the Gospel Accounts, has just been published by Thomas Nelson. It's about how new discoveries in archaeology and New Testament studies are challenging older scholarly ideas about who Jesus was and what he was trying to achieve -- and reveal that the basic portrait in the New Testament is actually far more plausible than many of the scholarly "reconstructions" of the past 150 years.

Hutchinson is also the author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Bible which argues that the ideas embedded in the ancient Biblical texts gave rise to such developments as modern science, the recognition of universal human rights and constitutional government.

In addition, he is the author of When in Rome: A Journal of Life in the Vatican City which recounts the adventures of his family when they lived in Rome and Hutchinson researched the inner workings of the Vatican; and The Book of Vices: A Collection of Classic Immoral Tales (Audio Editions) which was a light-hearted attempt to poke fun at William Bennett's The Book of Virtues and is full of excerpts from ribald classics.

Authoress and lover of books, I love to talk about writing, books, and authors anytime, anywhere. My writings are mostly novel length, and I'm in the process of getting my second series polished!
I've not delved into fairytale retelling until this set of plot lines grabbed me, but the tales are so compelling it won't let go, and it's been a sheer pleasure to write them.
Anybody interested in participating in a blog tour for the Thaw: books release in January? ;-)

Kazmierczak, Margaret
Margaret Kazmierczak
Margaret Kazmierczak was born in 1958, fortunately she has not died yet, that is why she has written her first novel "How to make Victoria Sponge". Born of two parents she is the only daughter of four children. A definite tom boy as a child, Margaret grew up in South West England where she played football endlessly with her brothers. She eventually won a medal doing what she did best - kicking a ball.

Margaret has had a full life and eventually succumbed to marrying and producing three children of her own. She loved telling her own stories to her children and encouraged them to help with the plots. This love of story telling finally became a reality when her first novel was published in September 2014. So instead of kicking a ball, Margaret was kicking words around, passing, dribbling and eventually scoring the winner.

If you ever bump into Margaret and ask her a question she will probably answer with a playful anecdote, as something is always happening in her life that creates a script of humourous outcomes.

It would have been rude for Margaret to have written something dry and crusty. Her sense of humour forbade her to write a documentary, or a factual account of the plight of the planet. Her faith lived out in day to day commotion afforded itself to a 'slightly' different perspective on life. Hence a Christian fiction novel was born about a lady called Victoria Sponge. And no is not a cookery book. It is a funny, thought provoking, tender, faith filled, at times painful journey that takes place during one week. The book kicks around with the true concept that God is our father and friend who walks with us during our day to day tasks. Victoria's household is chaotic, caring and central to the message of the book.

If you want to read something different yet not very heavy about our relationship with God, then "How to make Victoria Sponge" could be your cup of tea/coffee with a large slice of cake.
