Books

LITERARY EDITOR – Allison Burke 

Allison “Allie” Burke is a published novelist and editor who enjoys Weird Things like reading six YA novels in a day, drinking coffee at all the wrong times, and rambling on about Things No One Has Ever Heard Of to people who are not really listening. She loves vampires – but only on TV, not in books (except that one time) – and expresses herself using the F-word more in a day than is acceptable in any human being’s lifetime. She often Capitalizes Things That Are Not Technically Supposed To Be Capitalized, like that one girl from that one book. Her favorite book is The Fault In Our Stars, and she is terrified of Good Books Being Turned Into Movies That Suck.

Her life’s ambition is to renounce civilisation in pursuit of a career as a wild woman in Scandinavia.

 

Kathleen S. Allen

She is an urban faerie born without wings but she flies on the wings of imagination tethered to this mortal coil. Moonlight sustains her and sunlight devours her. Stars swim in her eyes and her soul bleeds on a daily basis. She is a writer.

Kathleen has been writing since she was eight years old. Okay, she hand copied her poems onto plain white paper, paper punched three holes in the sides and threaded red ribbon through the holes and tied it with a bow. Ta Dah! Her first book. She writes in different genres but YA is her favourite. Find her books on Amazon.com, they are available in print and as EBooks. Find her book trailers on You Tube.

Movies

David Ratcliffe 

David has an undergraduate degree in Drama and first showed symptoms of a mind blown by cinema after watching The Godfather too many years ago to remember. He enjoys binge watching TV shows because that is the only way to watch them, right? The West Wing, The Sopranos and The Wire rank among his favourites of all time; the list could go on but changes the more he watches. He has gradually become less picky in his viewing habits over the last five years and now watches and enjoys a variety of different genres, just do not ask him to watch a musical. He will not watch it. Books, comics and games are also enjoyed in different moods. Finishing that novel is a life ambition.
