Bio:

Kim Fielding is the bestselling, award-winning author of over 60 novels and novellas. Like Kim herself, her work is eclectic, spanning genres such as contemporary, fantasy, paranormal, horror, and historical. Her stories are set in alternate worlds, in 15th century Bosnia, in modern-day Oregon. Her heroes are hipster architect werewolves, housekeepers, maimed giants, and conflicted graduate students. They’re usually flawed, they often encounter terrible obstacles, but they always find love.

Having migrated back and forth across the western two-thirds of the United States, Kim calls California home. She lives there with her family, her cat, and her day job as a university professor, but escapes as often as possible via car, train, plane, or boat. This may explain why her characters often seem to be in transit as well. She dreams of traveling and writing full-time.

L.A. Witt and her husband have been exiled from Spain and sent to live in Maine because rhymes are fun. She now divides her time between writing, assuring people she is aware that Maine is cold, wondering where to put her next tattoo, and trying to reason with a surly Maine coon. Rumor has it her arch nemesis, Lauren Gallagher, is also somewhere in the wilds of New England, which is why L.A. is also spending a portion of her time training a team of special ops lobsters. Authors Ann Gallagher and Lori A. Witt have been asked to assist in lobster training, but they “have books to write” and “need to focus on our careers” and “don’t you think this rivalry has gotten a little out of hand?” They’re probably just helping Lauren raise her army of squirrels trained to ride moose into battle.

F.E.Feeley Jr is married to his wonderful husband, John. Freddie is an avid reader of Mysteries, Horror, and Suspense, and biographies. He’s also a gamer. His favorites include Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Star Trek Online, Skyrim, Assassin’s Creed, Fallout, and Civilization Five. He LOVES to cook and dives into trying new recipes. He’s an avid music junkie from POPular music to Opera, to Showtunes, Gospel, Rock, Rap, and Hip Hop.

SA “Baz” Collins hails from the San Francisco Bay Area where he lives with his husband, and a kitten named Taki. A classically trained singer/actor (under a different name), Baz knows a good yarn when he sees it.
Based on years of his work as an actor, Baz specializes in character study pieces. It is more important for him that the reader comes away with a greater understanding of the characters and the reasons they make the decisions they do, rather than the situations they are in. It is this deep dive into their manners, their experiences and how they process the world around them that make up the body of Mr. Collins’ work.

The Magic Emporium Authors

January 8, 2021

It gives us great pleasure to welcome Meghan Maslow, EJ Russell, Ari McKay/Rachel Langella, and Morgan Brice/Gail Z. Martin as the guests on Episode 302 – The Save Me Sack!

Meghan Maslow, EJ Russell, Ari McKay/Rachel Langella, and Morgan Brice/Gail Z. Martin explode onto the 2021 scene with their multi-author series “The Magic Emporium.” The four bring their wit and banter to our show to share the project’s concept and their individual contributions! We also explore what a world bible can do for an author writing as part of a team.

If you’re looking for comedy, fantasy, or dead bodies in your romances—sometimes all three at once!—Meghan Maslow’s your gal. She loves writing gay romance because she’s a sap for a happy ending, and believes everyone should be able to find books that have them. And if that romance comes with a dash of mischief, magic, or murder, all the better.
The Best Place to follow Meghan Maslow:


E.J. Russell-certified geek, mother of three, recovering actor–writes romance in a rainbow of flavors. Count on high snark, low angst, and happy endings. Reality? Eh, not so much.

E.J. lives in rural Oregon, enjoys visits from her wonderful adult children, and indulges in good books, red wine, and the occasional hyperbole.
The Best Place to follow EJ Russell:


Ari McKay and Rachel Langella are a writing duo who have been working together since 2004. As Ari McKay, they write Contemporary and Action/Adventure romantic fiction, while they publish Urban Fantasy and Paranormal as Rachel Langella.

Rachel is an assistant teaching professor of creative writing and literature, while Ari is a former systems engineer who moved to full time writing in 2020. Their collective works include the Herc’s Mercs action/adventure series, the Asheville Arcana series, and the Blood Bathory trilogy of urban fantasy.

When not writing, they can be found binging shows together, or collaborating on historical and fantasy costumes.
The Best Place to follow Ari McKay and Rachel Langella:


Morgan Brice is the romance pen name of bestselling author Gail Z. Martin. Morgan writes urban fantasy, MM paranormal romance, with plenty of action, adventure and supernatural thrills to go with the happily ever after. Gail writes epic and urban fantasy, with less romance, more explosions.
