When Wind Catches.png

Tori V. Rainn resides in Texas where she collects knives, or anything sharp, and pretends to be a ninja. She's a music junkie, loves video games, a member of ACFW, and popcorn addict. She’s currently editing a completed fantasy that she’s darn proud of, well, at least until she goes back and rereads it. Other ongoing projects include yet another fantasy, a paranormal novella boiling hot under her fingers, and various short stories.

Tori writes YA fantasy, horror, sci-fi, paranormal, and speculative, and is always open to branching out to different types of stories, where ever the wind takes her. She has been on this amusing writing journey for nearly seven years, leading to two publications, a children’s story, “The Unseen” featured in The Caterpillar Magazine, and a small story won in a contest, "Pheoclex".

In Love is Courage by Stacy Bennett
In Love is Courage.jpg

Stacy Bennett grew up on the East Coast always knowing she was the ugly duckling in the flock of engineers she called a family. But never did she imagine she'd end up writing fiction. When she wrote her first full story, she thought she only had one story to tell. She soon realized that the rabbit hole ran much deeper. Now she writes everything from flash fiction to full-length titles in the genres of fantasy, paranormal and science fiction. Who knows maybe there's a romance in there, too. This piece was written in tribute to the passing of her mother, her father having crossed over years before. Theirs was the love of a lifetime.
