About The Authors

Bethany Vela
Is a fifteen-year old blogger and fantasy geek who enjoys reading, novel writing, and map making. 
When she isn't scribbling in a notebook you are likely to find her loudly explaining to her computer why it is perfectly logical for her to use the British English spelling of words, even though she is American. She is currently rewriting the first draft of her novel and trying to figure out exactly what the limit on sarcasm in fiction is. You can find her here: http://lightofthefallen.blogspot.com/
She likes it when newcomers stop in to say hello, so if you visit, feel free to. She'll be the one sitting in a tree sipping tea and scribbling in a notebook. If she doesn't hear you, you can also kick the tree, and she'll probably fall out of it. If that doesn't work, you can try emailing her at: lightofthefallen.blog@gmail.com, which frankly is much safer than knocking her out of a tree and incurring her wrath.

Emma Grace
is an eighteen-year old woman who is fascinated by everything. She loves to read, write, and explore. Her main focus in life is to be uncomfortable for the sake of the gospel. She loves to teach the Bible through her writing and to encourage others. You can usually find her singing. . . pretty much anywhere. She drinks tea as an addiction. She can be found climbing trees, riding horses, and hiking in her free time.  Her blog is toocomfortableblog.wordpress.com so you can find her here https://toocomfortableblog.wordpress.com ! She would love feedback and comments! Let her know what you think! <3

Anne Rhys
Is an introvert, aspiring Self-Publisher, and Senior, who loves, chai tea, reading, writing, and ranting about LOTR. Is immensely entertained by three-year-olds. Over-thinks everything. She lives in the desert but loves the cool air. Her favorite thing to read is Fantasy and adventure.
 Every day she discovers just how much she loves writing and what it means to be a Child of God. She would love to someday teach the joys of creative writing and reading. You can find her at her blog here: https://aaablogfathersjoy.wordpress.com/
She loves comments and feedback from other people!

Karissa Bird
is a sixteen-year old dreamer, photographer, and writer who firmly believes that every good meal deserves a good book and every rainy morning a cup of tea. She loves to write intense books and sad short stories, although she likes to read happy ones. Her ultimate goal in life is to continually be a Christ-follower and a missionary. Aside from capturing each exciting or boring day through a camera lens or a pencil, she longs to make every moment count for Jesus!  One day she hopes to start her own school for children who wouldn't get a Biblical worldview otherwise. That and the fact that she might get to decorate her own bulletin board make it an inspiring goal to accomplish. 
Although self-proclaimed an introvert, she does love to talk through writing! You can find her little hideaway on the internet here.  Comments are her favorite thing so you should write one!

Natalie Marie
is a twenty-five year old writer, sister, poet, and a self-published author. Between working, selling her first poetry book, and chatting on the online writing group known as the Young Writers Workshop, she can be seen either working on writing her new book, writing on her own personal blog, frommyautisticheart.com, she can be seen at her favorite coffee shop, sipping on a cup of her favorite coffee while either chilling with friends, working on her projects and blog, or a combination of all of the above. Introvert by nature, give her a pen, paper, and an inspiration, and she will not shut up.  With all of her achievements, she still remembers that God is the number One person in her life and that she owes her life to Him. Or as she would tell you, while using her favorite song by Colton Dixon, she knows that God is still her God Through All Of It

Amaris Watje
she has ink stains on her fingers. She competes in speech and debate. She enjoys spending time considering society through the mask of a jaded philosopher. She plays Ultimate Frisbee and volleyball a lot. A friend once asked her, "Do you consist entirely of song lyrics?" 
Her reply was characteristic. "Nah, I've got some sarcasm in there somewhere." 
Her favorite place to be? Her mind palace named Camelot. And the results of the ink stains? All right here. Have fun!

Forgive me for being so ordinary while claiming to know so extraordinary a God.” These words, spoken by Jim Elliot, embody James’s mission. He strives to overcome ordinary boundaries and do the extraordinary through God’s power. He enjoys working at a local Christian bookstore, a job where he can encourage and uplift others while at the same time learning valuable life skills. He has also campaigned for various Christian political candidates, volunteered at a local radio station, and managed his church’s audio visual department. James loves writing because through it he can work to further the kingdom of God, while having fun in the process. He does not want to be just another teenager; he wants to be used by God to do incredible things.

Arella Noreen
When Arella is not writing or spending time discussing anything and everything with anyone who will listen, you can often find her curled up with a book and her bird, or possibly studying for her next college exam. At sixteen, she’s got a lot on her plate, but through it all she always finds time to explore the depths of her creativity and bring the inky worlds at her fingertips to life.  If asked where she’s from, her prompt reply is always to inform the person that she is a “God-made, Jesus-saved, Texan-raised homeschooler, and proud of it.” Current obsessions include sci-fi, fantasy, anything considered remotely geeky, spicy food, busting stereotypes, MBTI, ASL, and Texan culture.
