Jason King

SONY DSC For years Jason King publicly proclaimed his identity as “the chosen one,” but medication and a stint in a minimum security health and wellness facility convinced him that was not the case. In order to cope with his greatly diminished role in society, he devoted his free time to making up stories.

Born in Salt Lake City Utah, Jason grew up on a steady diet of anime, science fiction, Dungeons and Dragons, JRPG’s, and chocolate cake donuts. By some inexplicable cosmic anomaly Jason managed to marry, and is the proud father of four children, one of which is certainly destined to one day slay him and absorb his soul.
Jason holds a bachelor’s degree in I.T. Management and is currently the Internet Marketing Manager for a local bookstore chain. He’s the author of The Age of the Infinite Trilogy, and Valcoria Children of the Crystal Star from Curiosity Quills Press. He is also a proud “anonymous” member of the Space Balrogs comedy troupe, and he speaks fluent Labrador.
His books include:

Morgan J Muir

2016-09-18-KristinPortrait4Morgan J Muir lives in Utah with her fantastic husband, three offspring, and as many cats (but she doesn’t carry them with kits in sacks, and has never been to St. Ives). She grew up riding horses and motorcycles and listening to her grandmother read poetry. She grew up reading any sci-fi/fantasy novel she could get her hands on and so was surprised the day she discovered that she also really enjoyed historical fiction.
