Sandra Masters

As a lonely only child, she read fairy tales and now writes them. She admits freely she's an unapologetic storyteller. Sandra's stories are found on Amazon, Facebook, or Twitter.

Vicki Thomas

A decade ago, writing fantasy for young adults struck me like a cyclone. My passion for creating characters and creatures drove me to write about a boy searching for his older brother in a mystical Southern England forest. The first book in the Relics Adventure series, The Long Dark Cloak, was released March 2022. Book two, The Golden Lantern, was recently accepted by The Wild Rose Press for publication. I’m thrilled to see my dreams come true. Vicki's Website
