Patti L. Dikes

Patti L. Dikes is an attorney, author, and former university professor who grew up in Spokane Valley, Washington, when it was just a suburb of Spokane and moved back to the area from San Diego, California, four years ago.

Since returning, whenever she can manage it, you can find this lake girl hiking, swimming, playing fetch off the dock with her dog Sienna, or reading a novel while lying in her hammock at her cabin in Heyburn State Park, Idaho.

​She has published and presented academically in law, theology, and women’s studies, and more recently has been working on developing her creative side and writing semi-autobiographical and historical fiction.

Lorna M. Hartman

Lorna Hartman writes fiction from the scenic Pacific Northwest after a long and continuing career of corporate copywriting to support the impressive food intake of her husband and three growing sons.

She’s two-thirds done writing a feature-length action/adventure screenplay. Her life wouldn’t be the same without rejection, sarcasm, travel, and quality chocolate.

David Jewett is the author of the Bankster Chronicles and the Lucius Jackson Mystery series.

He’s originally from the north shore of Massachusetts, and has lived throughout the USA and worked much of his life as a systems architect and software engineer.

Jerry Schellhammer

He was born in San Francisco, 1958. He moved to Washington State in 1960, graduating from Hanford High School in 1979 and Washington State University in 1987 with a B.A. in English.
Jerry currently lives in Spokane with his wife, stepson, six parrots, two dogs, and a cat.
He also is an Eagle Scout and a veteran of the Washington Army National Guard.

Erik Schubach

An international bestselling author, Erik got his start writing novels by accident. He had always been drawn to strong female characters in books, like Honor Harrington. And he also believes that there is a lack of LGBT characters in media. So one day he came up with a story idea that combines the two… two days later he completed the manuscript for Music of the Soul.

Each of his books features strong likable female characters that are flawed. He thinks that flaws and emotional or physical scars make us human and give us more character than simply conforming to some social norm.
