Eric Buffington was born in Ontario Canada, where he lived until he was eighteen. After that he traveled with a Canadian government program, for one year (what he did is top secret), he then moved to California to serve a two year mission working with the Laotian people.
Shortly after returning home he met the love of his life, moved to Pennsylvania and married her. He has since completed a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in education. He currently lives in Pennsylvania with his wonderfully supportive wife, and their four children.  He currently works as a High School math teacher in an online cyber school.
Sam is a very lucky guy. He juggles work in such a way that he makes sure to spend enough time with his loving wife and five sons. He currently writes from his home office in the basement (lovingly referred to as either the pit, or the den, depending on who you ask). If he can carve out an extra hour for himself during the day, he'll hit the gym to try and regain the body he used to have in his youth.
He spent nearly five years serving as a U.S. Diplomat and absolutely loved the experience, but decided to move back home. Outside of the U.S. he has lived in Latvia, Hungary, and Armenia. He speaks Russian, Hungarian, and Armenian.  He has two dogs.  He plays the Elder Scrolls series.  His favorite superhero is Wolverine, but Batman is a close second.  If the kids go to bed at a reasonable hour, he will cuddle up with his wife to watch Scrubs reruns, the Big Bang Theory, Castle, or Burn Notice.
See, really just an average guy after all.

A.L. Sirois

Tales from the NoWhere and NeverWhen
The Bohemian Magician
A.L. Sirois has had fiction published in Isaac Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine, Fantastic, Amazing Stories, and Thema, and online at Electric Spec, Every Day Fiction and Flash Fiction Online, among other publications. His story In the Conservatory was nominated for the Pushcart Prize. Al has been playing drums for over fifty years in rock and jazz combos. As an artist, he has hundreds of drawings, paintings and illustrations to his credit. Al has contributed comic art for DC, Marvel, and Charlton, and has scripted for Warren Publications. He wrote and drew “Bugs in the System” for witzend #12, the famous comics fanzine started by for MAD artist Wally Wood. He lives in Rockingham County, North Carolina with his wife and occasional collaborator, author Grace Marcus.
Jason Hauser, a lifelong North Carolinian, when not writing, moonlights as a UNC Healthcare Employee and runs regular roleplaying games with his longstanding posse of kobold and goblin buddies. He considers himself to be an overall internet geek who doesn’t know as much as he thinks he does, but also considers himself a subtly charming travel guy with a love for adventure - real or imagined.
Obsessively punctual (and remorselessly intolerant of the chronically non-punctual), Jason, despite having more than his fair share of siblings, has a close-knit family. He is a Turkey Bacon aficionado, a reluctant dancer and a lover of his neighbor’s llamas, whom he says whisper story ideas for children’s books. Whether true or not, he admits that’s kind of weird.

The Annals of Esparia: The Protector of Esparia
The Lost City of Alfarin
Keaton James grew up with a love for books, often being scolded by his parents for reading instead of playing outside with his friends.

Keaton enjoys learning about all kinds of things and hopes to become a science teacher one day. He is excited to be sharing some of his stories with the world.
Lisa Wilson has a bachelor’s degree in Microbiology from Brigham Young University, and a nursing degree from Utah Valley University.  She enjoys gardening, sewing, jewelry making, and spending time with her family. Lisa has seven children, and one very fluffy puppy.  Writing is not a new interest for Lisa.  She wrote her first play for her church youth group when she was in high school, during which time she also avidly participated in the drama program at her
high school in Spokane Washington. Since that time, Lisa has been a busy reader and story writer in her leisure time. The Protector of Esparia is her first published work, and she is excited about her progress on the second installment of the Annals of Esparia.

E.P. Stein

Luciano Fleitas

Codex of Light, Codex of Darkness
Cover Artist
E.P. Stein is a father, husband and author, and those are the titles he cherishes most.  In addition to novels, he has written for community theater stages in Los Angeles.  Stein enjoys games of all sorts, well-written books, and ideas that penetrate past the skin of surface appearances.  But for all his love of the esoteric, few things bore him more than talking about his education and work history.  

Originally from a small town in California, Stein lived in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles.  In 2011, he got married on a boat.  In 2013, his daughter was born.  And together, they returned to that small town in California, so their daughter would know her grandparents.  Life is a great circle after all.
