Author of Hearts Aligned (Self-published 2016), a military romance, Cheri Marie aka Young Adult author Bella Rayne, lives for a good read with an alpha hero and strong, stubborn heroine. After many years of starting books and never finishing, she took to Word in April 2015 determined to write and finish her first novel. Nights that turned into mornings and a whole lot of unruly characters, she finished Hearts Aligned.

Kris Johnston is the best-selling author of paranormal fan favorites; The R.I.P. Series and This Beautiful Curse. She is a single mother of six, a native of Southern California, and loves all things indie. Her obsession with writing began at the age of 8 with poetry and grew over the years. She is a huge fan of Dean Koontz (Odd Thomas is her forever book boyfriend!), Edgar Allan Poe, Stephen King, and R.L. Stine.
Voted 2016 Spillwords Author of the Year, Alyssa Brocker began writing during her freshman year of college. With the creative efforts of her theatre troupe, they produced an original play written in prose. After that experience, writing was all she wanted to do. Her poetry and short stories have been published in Florida Weekly, Leaves of Ink, 101 Word Stories, and Eskimopie. Her current project is a poetry collection, “without reason” on Spillwords. The series is written only from post-it notes, along with honest photography. She lives with her puppy, Dobby, who is always her first reader.
Brianna West lives in beautiful Northern California with her wonderful husband and four adorable children. She writes funny, real stories that are accompanied by humor and supernatural elements. First published in October 2015, Brianna has gone on to add several books to her main series and spin-off series since then. Her stories feature sassy, strong heroines; hunky, supernatural heroes; a sordid amount of action; enough humor to leave you laughing all the way through; and a world that will fill you with an overwhelming desire to be a part of it.
