An avid reader and writer since middle school, C.J. Sears is the author of the “This Fallen World” horror/thriller series. In 2013, he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Creative Writing from Arkansas Tech University. After languishing a few years at a mundane job, C. J. set out to pursue his passion. Inspired by Twin Peaks and Resident Evil, he began working on what would eventually become The Shadow Over Lone Oak – the first of several books chronicling the adventures of eccentric Special Agent Llewyn Finch.

In the fall of 2016, C.J. gave his life to Christ. That faith now informs his storytelling and ongoing blog. He believes that fiction is a uniquely valuable medium for delivering both entertainment and essential truths. His emphasis is on the power of the parable rather than preachiness, and he affirms that no message should get in the way of a good story.

C.J.’s range of interests and hobbies include gaming, occasional poetry, swimming, and amateur photography. He mostly spends time with his family and loved ones, particularly his two rambunctious cats and silly goof dog. The quiet life suits him fine, but when a new vision of monsters and mystery beckons, he’s no stranger to answering the call.

Hailing from Colorado, Brandon has been an artist of many sorts his whole life, foremost among those an award-winning professional modern and ballet dancer, touring worldwide for 25 years. He’s an oil painter, and has sold a number of works, and a creative writer as well, with a published book of poetry, Scarves of Wind.

Brandon’s interest in voice acting has deep roots from his childhood, as he loved doing impressions of famous actors and creating characters or sounds with his voice, entertaining everyone around him. This also led to singing and performing with vocal groups and choirs through college. During his dance career, Mr. Freeman took voice acting classes at Voicetrax, in Sausalito, California, where he learned to hone his vocal skills and microphone work. A focus on narration has been Brandon’s strength as he loves the creative process, and exploring the arc of a story… and the arc of the characters within the story.

5 January 2021: The Evolved Publishing Team welcomes its newest foreign translator (Brazilian Portuguese).

The youngest of four children, music, drawings, cartoons, paintings, games, and books were introduced to me through my brothers. As eclectic as they could be since my brothers had a very different taste and personality, it turned out to be a great experience, from such a young age, to travel between the worlds they liked the most and finally find the ones I did. Because of that, I can not remember a time in my life in which reading wasn’t a huge part of it.
Some of those magical, fictional worlds weren’t available to me in Portuguese, which sparked the interest in other languages, especially English. And although my passion for learning English came mainly from games, music, and books, the desire to experience other cultures outside of the screens and pages had grown.

I’ve been traveling around the world for a few years now, and although the experiences I am living are terrific, the ones coming from stories have never lost their value to me. They’ve turned out to be even more precious, as they are for so many other people. So here I am today, working with books, which I am completely passionate about, hoping to be able to allow fantastic stories to be read also in Portuguese.

Born in the small town of Colac in the Otway Ranges of Victoria, Australia, Geoff moved his family to Lexington Virginia in 1980. In his capacity as a textile chemist and inventor of a computerized printing machine, he worked in Glasgow, VA for 15 years before moving to Roanoke Virginia. He brought a wife and 3 boys to the US, and remarried in 1993, adding four stepdaughters to the family. He’s been active in Toastmasters for 18 years, and has been teaching a self-designed public speaking course to high school-aged students twice per year for the past 9 years.

For more than 30 years, he listened to sweet southern belles saying, “I just love the way you talk”, and begging him to do so. In his early seventies, approaching retirement, he decided to give audio voice recording a shot, and in the past 3 years has released 50 audiobooks. Topics vary from thriller to romance, and more than 30% are from Australian authors.

Geoff grew up loving reading, and recording; saving his pocket money to buy an early reel-to-reel tape recorder. He was a mad fan of the British comedy, The Goon Show, which exposed him to an incredible collection of audio voices from Harry Secombe, Spike Milligan, and Peter Sellers. He diverged into textile dyeing for the next 50 years, until now, when he has returned to his true love, recording, reading, experiencing.

Geoff truly “lives” in the books he narrates, which means he loves doing it. As he prepares for retirement (he still works as a textile chemist 40 hrs per week), he looks forward to being able to continue developing and honing his skills as a narrator.
