Craig Kobayashi(1) Written Books
Craig Kobayashi spends most of his time in front of his computer. If you peeked into his basement when he was younger, the monitor would have displayed deckard Cain identifying magical items or a horde vs alliance game of capture the flag in Warsong Gulch. If you looked through the window of his anime-adorned home office now (not recommended), you would probably find him tapping away at his analog keyboard with a little black cat on his lap and a stinky black labradoodle at his feet. Reading epic fantasy and science fiction from the likes of David Eddings and Orson Scott Card has always been another of Craig's passions. It wasn't until he turned 30 that Craig managed to rank up his attention span to Rank 1 (average human standard) and used that newfound average-ness to start writing books. His debut series, Peril's Prodigy, is an apocalyptic litrpg that, if you ask Craig, is pretty gosh darn cool. Unfortunately for him, the competition is pretty steep for the title of being Craig's #1 fan. He would like to claim that title for himself, but his beautiful lore keeper and wife, Tabitha, stays in contention with their dog, Bill - leaving Craig fighting for third place with the cat, Cat. He will be publishing not only the remainder of the Peril's Prodigy series that follows Garath and The Band of the Hawk in the Pacific Northwest, but also a collection of short stories in the same world that cover globally important events - and some silliness that didn't make it into the main series.

Sue was born in North Wales, UK, but has spent most of her life in and around the city of Manchester. After graduating from Durham University with a degree in French, Sue got married then had a variety of office jobs before becoming a full-time parent. If she had her way, the phrase "non-working mother" would be banned from the English language. Since then she has had a series of part-time jobs, including some work as a freelance copywriter. In parallel with this she took several courses in Creative Writing. Her writing achievements include winning the Writing Magazine New Subscribers Poetry Competition for 2013. She is also very interested in Family History. Her own background is stranger than fiction; she'd write a book about it if she thought anybody would believe her. Sue has a mind which is sufficiently warped as to be capable of compiling questions for BBC Radio 4's fiendishly difficult Round Britain Quiz. This once caused one of her sons to describe her as "professionally weird." The label has stuck. Sue joined the editorial team of Crooked Cat Publishing team in 2013. The Ghostly Father, officially released on St Valentine's Day 2014, is her first novel.

Zachariah Dracoulis(2) Written Books
I used to have this thing all professional and in the third-person, but I've decided that it's going to be a whole lot better if I'm just candid with you. I like writing. A lot. And gaming. A lot a lot. I'm a former chef, spent most of my time between the ages of 16 and 20 in kitchens and the time before that splitting it roughly sixty-forty with high school. Don't get me wrong, it's a great career, taught me a lot, but f&!k me did it ruin my knees, back, and general state of mind. All better now though, minus some deafness, Asperger's, a clicky jaw, and an improperly healed burst ligament in my right knee. Fun, fun, fun. Despite all that positively joyous pain, I live a pretty awesome life. I've got a gorgeous wife, loving family, and a daughter that's pretty good. I'm kidding, I love that little bundle of joy, best thing in the world. Anyway, booky-book stuff... Well, there's not a lot to tell there outside the fact that I love writing stories, which I've already covered, and I love writing in a lot of genres, especially GameLit, LitRPG, and variations thereof. I guess that's all for now, I'll probably tinker with this little snapshot some more over time, but until then I hope this gives you glimpse into the inner workings of me.
