Author Spotlight: Erin O’Reilly

eopic1We’re excited to welcome Erin O’Reilly back to this year’s Lone Star LesFic Festival!

Erin O’Reilly was first challenged by a friend to write a story. Since then, Erin has written numerous online and published works. Her stories Deception and Fearless were GCLS finalists, and Deception garnered the Sapphic Readers Award in 2009. Strong characters always seem to dictate the story and invade her mind at all hours. It always amazes her when the characters she is developing suddenly take on a life of their own and lead the story down a completely different path. She thinks that the characters make an impact on the storyline, making the story more realistic. Contact Erin  via email here.

Author Spotlight: Del Robertson

Del RobertsonAuthor spotlight: Del Robertson

From an early age, Del Robertson always had an active imagination. Fortunately, an understanding mother as well as a teacher or two constructively channeled her creativity, and her powers were harnessed for good and not towards political aspirations of any sort. Del has more award-winning stories than can be counted on one hand, all of which can be found by surfing the web in a t-shirt and a pair of baggy shorts. Del’s boogie board is safely tucked away in a corner at the home office My Fair Maiden Coverof Affinity eBook Press NZ LTD. Her publishers tell her it will be returned unharmed once she’s sold enough books to raise the ransom. Taming the Wolff and My Fair Maiden are both available through Affinity’s site at www.affinityebooks.com.

Come meet Del and your other favorite authors on Saturday, April 5 at the Sixth Annual Lone Star LesFic Festival!
