In high school, he starred in his class play, Grease, earned a varsity letter in football, and founded the Dungeons and Dragons club. His love for computers eventually led to a degree in computer science. After two grueling years of corporate life, Daryn fled back to his first loves...being his own boss and poverty. Instead of working a normal job, he formed and sold various companies; Dominus Software (custom software), The Laughing Ogre (comic book shop), Active Synapse (publishing company), Gnotary (mobile notary), and Zombie-Clean (commercial cleaning). At some point during all that, he got married, had two brilliant sons, got divorced, got slightly arrested a few times, spent too much time and money at the strip club, met the actual love of his life, and tore both of his Achilles tendons. Two things remained constant over those many tumultuous years and careers, his creativity and his love for writing.
He now writes and lives in Columbus Ohio with his two brilliant sons, Connor and Morgan, his lovely and incredibly supportive wife, Elizabeth, and their ferocious protector, Fiona, a Dogo Argentino.
His indie published book, “Prey Until Dawn”, is an H.P. Lovecraft-inspired story of an ancient book of forbidden knowledge and the fate of those who simply must know the dark truths contained within.Follow Daryn on Twitter
Jessica pottered around with stories all through her childhood, but really revved up when she got to her teen years when she started writing a serial for her schoolfriends, a love story that only ended after a heart-rending incident with a floppy disc drive and a pair of tweezers. Since then, she’s spent most of her life thrown head-first into fantasy worlds of her own creation. She mostly writes novels in a variety of genres, from chick-lit to urban fantasy.
When not scribbling furiously or bashing at her computer keyboard, she divides her attention between her other great passions: coffee, food, and heavy metal music (though nowadays she’s only an occasional groupie). Thanks to her degree at Durham University, Jessica can swear in several languages and, on a good day, pass for a French person. She lives in Manchester with her fiancé and a dangerously insane cat, and spends approximately three quarters of her life ranting on Twitter about buses.
