Debbie Viguié - the New York Times Bestselling author of over a dozen novels. She is the co-author (with Nancy Holder) of the Young Adult series Wicked, the bestselling five-book series that includes Witch, Curse, Legacy, Spellbound and July 2009′s Resurrection. The Wicked series is currently under option by DreamWorks for a possible film adaptation. In September 2010 the authors launched a brand new Young Adult series with the book Crusade. Much of Debbie’s work has a dark edge to it, including her retold fairy tales, her latest being Violet Eyes, a retelling of “The Princess and the Pea”. In addition to her epic dark fantasy work Debbie also writes thrillers including The Psalm 23 Mysteries and the upcoming Kiss trilogy. When Debbie isn’t busy writing she enjoys spending time with her husband, Scott, visiting theme parks. They live in Florida with their cat, Shrödinger. Visit Debbie online at www.debbieviguie.com


Scott Viguié – holds two doctorate degrees and is an archaeologist and an attorney who has done extensive research on myths and their impact on modern archaeology and modern storytelling. He wrote his dissertation on the importance of using and understanding mythology in archaeological research and analysis. He has done extensive writing in both his chosen fields. When he’s not rigorously pursuing the truth, he enjoys watching and reading science fiction and fantasy. He appreciates the history and mythology woven together in the Doctor Who and Stargate shows. Scott is also one of the producers of the Articles of the Shadow Proclamation, a Doctor Who podcast which can be downloaded on iTunes or from www.shadowproclamation.net. When Scott is not busy with his work he can be found enjoying theme parks with his wife, Debbie, being a technical adviser for her books, or working on his own book examining world-wide laws and regulations governing both professional and amateur archaeology.


Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc- Award Winning Author. “Hailed as one of the most unique and twisted female Horror authors of the generation, she has blazed a path through a genre most often dominated by men. Her work has appeared in everything from magazines (online and in print) to websites and she herself has made many television and radio appearances. Writing in the Horror Sinisteria (which she is repeatedly mistakenly credited with originating) genre, Andrea has in recent years, turned to other works as well, including her mainstream pirate series The Grounds of Nachmasheeghan, her books for children (thanks to the births of a niece and two nephews), the Occult and even some paranormal/dark/Occult Non-Fiction. She is also known for her depraved and oftentimes brutal Erotica. Andrea also owns two of the most popular underground magazines, Twisted Dreams and Worlds Within Worlds Beyond, in circulation today.” www.thelosttheforgottenthedamned.com


Doctor Stew – Resident Doctor Who History/Character/Event Expert/Co-Writer of web series “Doctor Stew,” Christian Basel will be present to discuss the series and to answer questions. Doctor Stew is… “Family Guy meets Doctor Who…it’s Doctor Stew! This is an entirely fan based, non-profit project” www.doctorstew.com

Rebecca Foster aka The Bejeweled Faerie – “I am a Fantasy Artist who also enjoys creating scenes from nature. I like to paint images of elves and faeries as well as creatures that are native to the Florida Environment which I live. I enjoy working with watercolors and like the challenge that they present. For years I have been making artisan jewelry using sterling sliver, Swarovski Crystal, and natural gemstones. You will also from time to time find other things here that I created ‘Just because I can’” www.facebook.com/BejeweledFaerie


The Art of Summer Rae – “Digital art is a passion of mine, and something I take very seriously. I tend to get random ideas at random times, and usually end up with something different than the idea that started it. Artistic inspiration in that department is often music, or events in my life that set a certain mood for me. Most of my art is a representation of something I’m feeling. I’m very emotive through art and express myself that way in the darkest or lightest moments in my life. www.facebook.com/artofsummerrae
