S.P. Aruna

Bio: I'm a Cambodian woman of mixed blood, married to an aspiring author, and of course he had something to do with my idea to write entertaining fiction. We live in a little green house in the countryside in southern Cambodia. No kids yet, but we're working on it.
I live on a large plot of land and I enjoy taking care of my trees, plants, and flowers. I also love embroidery, stitching to make beautiful pictures. It's very meditative for me. And then I frame them and put them all over the walls of my house, which drives my husband crazy.

Michelle Holland

Bio: In 1995 I opened my own sanctuary for New Forest ponies and saved and rehomed over 57 from slaughter over a 5 year period. This was so rewarding and totally voluntary and I had to raise over £80,000 a year to keep it going. I took on Chelsea who was 6 months old, she was riddled with lice and worms and would attack any man who came near her, after plenty of patience and tender loving care we formed a truly awesome and special relationship, and I decided I would keep her myself!  Chelsea inspired my writing and is the star of The adventures of Bella & Emily and The adventures of Bella & Emily in Devon. I am a fully qualified Canine Behaviourist Practitioner after completing my Canine Psychology & Behaviour course with The International School for Canine Psychology & Behaviour and just love helping dogs and their owners who are trying to deal with behavioural problems.

Will Mayo

 

Bio: But it's weird sometimes how it works. A few nights ago, I dreamed that we, my parents and I, were back in the old house in Alabama, my parents were about half the age they'd be now whereas, myself, I was just a little boy. And it seems the question of my having another bookcase in my apartment here in Maryland was somehow raised, there being little enough room to spare, and, well, my sweet little old mother turned to me, her young eyes shining, and then glanced to my father. "I think he can have another bookcase, don't you, Joe?" she asserted to my father and me, almost simultaneously. My father gave his agreement with the barest of perceptible nods. And that was that.
