There is beauty in every kind of love, so why not live a life without boundaries? Experiencing everything the world offers fascinates me and writing about the things that make each of us unique is how I share those insights. I live in the Midwest with a wonderful partner of thirteen years. When not writing, I'm watching movies, reading and living life to the fullest.
Lisa Cresswell, like most writers, began scribbling silly notes, stories, and poems at a very young age. Born in North Carolina, the South proved fertile ground to her imagination with its beautiful white sand beaches and red earth. In fifth grade, she wrote, directed and starred in a play "The Queen of the Nile" at school, despite the fact that she is decidedly un-Egyptian looking. Perhaps that's why she went on to become a real life archaeologist?
Unexpectedly transplanted to Idaho as a teenager, Lisa learned to love the desert and the wide open skies out West. This is where her interest in cultures, both ancient and living, really took root, and she became a Great Basin archaeologist. However, the itch to write never did leave for long. Lisa still lives and writes in Idaho, where she lives with her family and a menagerie of furry critters that includes way too many llamas!

I've been writing since I could put words together. Early stories were about dolls and horses and kids who surmounted the odds and came home with a kitten. Gradually I learned about punctuation and point-of-view and my characters grew up. But real life came along, with forays into psychology and teaching and then a biomedical career and children. Writing happened in my head, for my own amusement, but didn't make it to paper.
Then several years ago, my husband gave me a computer. And my two girls were getting older and developing their own interests. So I sat down and typed out a story. Or two. Or three. Now I have adult work published, and my love of Young Adult fiction has led me to Featherweight, and the chance to share some of my YA stories.
I currently write constantly, read obsessively, and share my home with my younger teenager, my amazingly patient husband, and a crazy, omnivorous little white dog. I can be found at my author page on Goodreads, and look forward to sharing many more stories with YA readers in the future.

Karen Lee has lived in one part of Western Canada or another for her entire life. She's a doting mother of three now-grown kids and has had characters and plots running around her head for as long as she can remember. Though this is her first foray into throwing her original fiction out into the web universe, she hopes to substitute her passion for writing beautiful, emotional men for her previous jobs as a hockey manager/coach, school band volunteer and overall chauffeur.
For now she lives with an overly-patient husband who totally does not get her thing for gay men, two spoiled but wonderful sons (who don't get it either), two also spoiled but beautiful cats, many phone calls with her daughter who has already left the nest, and an abundance of fabulous gay men, large and small, bouncing off the walls of her skull, competing for their turns to tell their stories.

During Spring Break of the year 2007, working on the theory that most amazing things are accomplished by people who simply haven't been told they can't be done, Z.A. Maxfield informed her children it was the truest desire of her heart to become a writer. This may have been the result of boredom, or sunspot activity, or the earnest desire to function as some sort of role model for a change (as opposed to object lesson). It occurred to her that all those 'do your best' and 'try your hardest' and 'never too late' speeches would go better with a little active participation and the occasional visual aid. Since then, Ms. Maxfield has written several novels, three of which have been contracted for publication, and two prize-winning short stories. Ms. Maxfield currently lives in Southern California with her husband and four children, where she regularly and faithfully allows herself to be distracted by life, as well as any other shiny thing she happens to see.
AKM Miles loves to write. She loves characters. A good story line is great, she figures, but if you don't care anything about the characters, why would you care what happens to them? That's pretty much why and how she writes.
She loves, absolutely loves, to hear from readers. That shows that people love the characters in AKM's books and that's why she writes.

I've been reading and writing since I was very young, and I've always enjoyed creating new worlds and stories in which someone who considers his/her life bland and boring suddenly finds everything he/she's always known turned on its ear. In other words, fantasy that starts, and often takes place completely, in the &qout;real world.&qout;. That's the type of story I enjoy reading, as well.
I wrote my first story when I was five, and completed my first book-length manuscript when I was 12. Through junior high, high school, and college, I wrote about 19 more book-length stories, all longhand. Well, I didn't have a computer back then... I put writing aside for several years after I married and had my daughters, but then got back into it about five years ago, and since then have completed the first drafts of 44 young adult manuscripts, 30 of which are part of a series, and another ten of which make up another series. My characters don't like to leave me alone.
I'm a former special education teacher who now does school visits in addition to writing. I live in Massachusetts with my two daughters, my husband, and a pair of cats.

Russell J. Sanders has been an educator, a musician, an actor, a director, and now, a writer.Teaching high school, he says, is like a roller coaster ride---sometimes scary, sometimes bumpy, but always a thrill. And you get to share the ride with emerging minds and emotions.This experience gave him a unique perspective into the psyches of teenagers.
And that perspective was widened by his being a proud gay man. Each teacher sees the job through his or her own eyes; being gay (in a world that is only now finally, and slowly, accepting gay teens) let him see his students, especially his gay students, with deeper insight than his straight counterparts. And that not only made him a different kind of teacher, but it has also made him a different kind of writer.
Russell lives in Texas with his companion of many years, whom he describes as, "the wacky, supremely talented love of my life."

Publishing through Featherweight Press, DH brings the raw emotions of first experiences and issues young people face and lays the emotions out on the page.
