James W. Hughes

Description

I came across the idea for my first novel almost by accident. I was at home on summer break from school–I use the word “summer” lightly, as I’m from the north of England–when a news article caught my eye. It was titled “The First Person to Live to 1000 has Already Been Born.” A year (and several drafts) later I had a manuscript for my first novel: Uploaded.

These days I live in Lancaster, a place equally as cold and wet, with seven of my friends. When I’m not writing (or procrastinating), I alternate my time between finishing off my degree in marketing, cooking, travelling, and running.

Watch for James’s second novel in the dystopian YA series, Uploaded: Viral, to come in the fall of 2017.

The Underground has fallen.

The Enclave has delivered a crushing blow to the Outside, but Xander has not lost hope. As the immortal race revel in their victory, he is back in the walled city, uploaded and desperately trying to unravel the president’s sinister plan from the inside.

Rachel has survived the battle, but now lives trapped in the former rebel stronghold. She must learn the ways of the president’s regime to keep not only herself safe, but also those dearest to her.

And all the while, the spark of rebellion grows brighter. Almost as bright as a strange, flickering flame to the north where the Wildlanders have suddenly resurfaced, determined to avenge those the Enclave has taken.

War is brewing.

Derek Taylor Kent is an author, screenwriter, and performer based out of Los Angeles, California. He graduated from UCLA with a degree in theater and playwriting. After realizing a career as a theater actor in LA wasn’t possible, he launched his writing career, penning the hit musical King Kalimari.

The success of Harry Potter inspired him to rediscover his early love of book writing. After his first novel was soundly rejected, he found success with his second, receiving a three-book deal from HarperCollins for his series Scary School (written under pen name Derek the Ghost). The first book won an award for “Funniest Chapter Book of the Year” by Children’s Literature Network, and the series went on to become one of the most popular for middle-grade readers. His bi-lingual picture book El Perro con Sombrero was released August 2015 through Holt/Macmillan, and quickly became a best-selling new picture book. Other available books include the award-winning educational picture book Simon and the Solar System and the magical adventure Rudy and the Beast.

Description

I was raised in the heart of Florida in the 1950s and ’60s, growing up in a pink cinderblock house in a community hemmed by orange groves against the edge of a swamp and the shore of a lake. I didn’t read anything not assigned by a teacher until the summer of 1967, when an injury—the outcome of an idea that looked good at the time—laid me up for several weeks. In an effort to keep me sane my mother brought me armloads of books from the library, which I used to build forts… until the red-and-yellow cover of Have Space Suit, Will Travel lured me into looking inside. To my surprise, I read it—twice—and was hooked. In later years, I read and loved mysteries, fantasies, and historicals, but my reader’s heart first imprinted on YA science fiction.

I left Florida for California in 1973, and wandered a bit before settling on North Carolina’s coast. Along the way I became a husband, a father (three times), and in 2013 a grandfather. I’ve had a half-dozen careers in those forty years, working in education or mental health. These days, when I’m not writing I’m teaching English at a community college.

Oh, did I not mention writing? I began in 1967, right after I started reading, and—if you overlook thousands of rejections and thirty-three years of practice—was an immediate success. Since my first sale in 2000 I’ve sold three novels, a half-dozen novellas, and thirty-one short stories. I’ve also co-written or co-edited nineteen role-players’ resource and rule books.

My writing is fueled by two questions: “What happened?” and “What if?” The first motivates my exploration of lesser-known history, and the second drives my speculations about how our world would be changed if we had chosen differently. From those two streams my stories flow.

Kara S Tyler

Author

Kara S Tyler is the real world name of the author writing as both Pavarti K. Tyler and P.K. Tyler. Under those pen names, her books have spanned genres and won many awards, but they are geared toward an adult audience. Now that she’s writing children’s books, Kara has decided to use her real name.

The Adventures of Ninja and Bunny first came about because of a fabulous conversation overheard between Kara’s two children during a very long car ride. The two young girls spent over two hours debating various aspects of Fae politics and social structure. Without realizing it, the girls were building a world so real, Ray Bradbury would be proud.

Kara lives in Baltimore with her husband, two children, and two terrible dogs. She is a full-time author and mother.
