TT Banks would rather be doing anything other than writing in the 3rd person about herself. She writes books - this shouldn’t come as a surprise to you - you’re currently reading her author bio! She writes funny, quirky - sometimes nerve-racking - always sexy - lesbian fiction novels. She taught middle school math for one terrifying year and has since been a successful entrepreneur. She needed an outlet for her creative, goofy, slightly dark side - and that’s what you’ll find in her books. Twitter Press: Website Indie Spotlight by Bibiana Krall


Hi there! I’m Evan, Evan Knapp. I came to writing pretty much the way most authors do. I flunked out/dropped out of high school, then ran away from home to live on the streets of Portland, Oregon in the early ’80s. I panhandled, I was an underage club-kid, dabbled in prostitution, told ridiculous bedtime stories to my friends, all while training to be a classical ballet dancer. Then, I started getting dance jobs and had a 30-year career in the performing arts. I was also a teacher, choreographer, director and producer. I retired, then went to college - studying performing arts - to get that piece of paper that said I was qualified to do what I’d been doing my whole life, because I thought I was just a dumb dancer and I needed to prove to myself I wasn’t. I graduated Magna Cum Laude. During my senior year (at age 40-something) I met a professor, Christian De Matteo (Tellworthy.com) who’s infectious love of the written word, in all its forms, somehow smeared off onto me, and, I inadvertently wrote a book. It feels akin to choreographing with words. Right! My book. My book is a short-form bildungsroman memoir titled, WHERE THERE iS MOVEMENT. Connect on Twitter @movementwhere, Facebook, and Email.

A.C. Merkel is an author, musician, and digital artist. What if you could watch history unfold? Take a ride on the Orient Express? Rock out at CBGB in its heyday? Go dancing in post prohibition Chicago? Pick berries under billions of pure starlit pinpoints in 1540s France? That is the premise of his debut urban fantasy.
