This week, I’m pleased to have 13 authors hanging out on the Block. I hope you’re getting to see the “real” writer behind some of your favorite books and perhaps meet a couple of wonderful new authors!
1. Judi Phillips
Judi Phillips has had stories playing in her head for as long as she can remember and finally began writing them down. Her spicy alter-ego, Pepper Goodrich, is much newer at the writing game.
2. Rebecca Royce
Rebecca Royce is the mother of two little boys, with a third one set to join them in the fall. Relatively new to writing, she has sold a few novels, with her debut novel, Her Wolf released earlier this month from Liquid Silver Books. A believer that anything is possible, the truly unexpected usually occurs in her work.
3. Liena Ferror
Liena was born and raised in South Central Pennsylvania by parents who instilled a love of reading into her and her brother. After a comment from her husband regarding the fact she reads so much that she could probably write a book, Liena embarked on her writing career. Her first release is scheduled for November 20, 2009 titled The Risen: Queen of the Ghost Drakon from Eirelander Publishing.

8. Diana Castilleja
Diana currently resides in central Texas with her husband and son. When not focusing her energy on her family and her writing, she loves to travel and haunt bookstores. The freedom to read about anything and everything has fueled her adult imagination. She is most likely currently sitting at her desk, having it out with her keyboard writing her next book.
9. Linda Style
In 2000, after five years of writing and four nominations for the RWA Golden Heart Award, Linda’s last GH entry was bought by the senior editor at Harlequin Superromance. Linda’s second book won the prestigious Daphne du Maurier Award, and now, 13 novels later, Linda’s award-winning books are sold worldwide and translated in many language. Linda says she has the best job in the world. “I still can’t believe someone wants to pay me to make up stories.”
