About the Authors
Born in Florida, but raised in the mountains of Northeast Georgia, writing has always been a passion for R.E. Danielle, and she won several young adult fiction awards while in school. Writing has always been a place she can go to relax. An avid reader, Danielle enjoys a good book almost as much as she does writing one! Danielle loved spending time on her uncle’s Christmas tree and grape farm in Florida, as well as taking road trips. R.E. Danielle now lives in Tennessee, where she and her husband raise their young daughter. T.D. Dean is not only her co-author, but also her wonderful mother-in-law!
Born in Middle Tennessee and has always written from a young age. Loves to write to this day and finds inspiration in her family and grandchildren. She has always been know for her crazy imagination and wild stories.
Rachel de la Fuente
Rachel de la Fuente (meaning of the fountain) lives in Maryland with the love of her life and two furry children that meow. The Most Special Chosen was her first novel, but it’s hardly her first story. She’s been writing since elementary school, and telling stories since she could speak. She is an avid fountain pen enthusiast with a bit of an ink problem, and often writes book notes and sections of stories by hand.
Rachel was born and raised in southern California, but spent many summers with family in Mexico. Her parents loved traveling, so she also spent many vacations in various locations, soaking up foreign cultures and sights. She still loves to travel, and is committed to crossing all of the locations off her bucket list.
Rachel is a proud Slytherin, and when not writing, spends much of her free time reading, cross stitching, and watching documentaries.
Growing up writing was second nature that soon become a distant memory. Turning 30 (not saying when) that memory was going to be brought back to life. Lover of all books I try to grab my audience in and never let go. Hoping to get all these thoughts and ideas down for everyone to enjoy, even if it’s a moment or a life time.
This is the new chapter of my life story. Hope everyone enjoys!
Who am I?
Basically, I’m a fiction writing science nerd, who balances Ph.D. work with my imagination. I love the way writing fiction liberates my mind and allows me the freedom to be creative. A large portion of my time is devoted to turning dreams into reality and the other portion to loving and embracing life. When I’m not writing or trying to investigate the inner workings of the microbial world, I’m either binge watching Netflix, reading on my Kindle or painting. That or I’m either pretending to be a Master Chef with my husband, playing with my 5 dogs, or talking to my family and friends.
Why do I write?
My mind is a hotel and way too many characters live there. They slam doors, fall in love, blow things up and murder each other. Avoiding them usually results in multiple temper tantrum, slamming doors and silent treatments that inevitably results in writer’s block. So, I listen to them and share their stories.
Okay, so I’m not one of those people that woke up one day and decided, “you know what, I think I’ll write a book today.” Who am I kidding, yes I am. However, I came to the decision because my fiancé was struggling with his MS, and sometimes when things that heavy are going on in your life, you need an outlet. So, that’s just what I did.
I started with just writing poems, which turned into short stories, then what do you know…a whole book! Trust me, I’m no genius! But I feel you might enjoy some of the things I decided to put on paper. Some may think, “My goodness she’s got a foul mouth!” Especially anyone that knows me, but what can I say, I must’ve been a sailor in my past life! Anyway, enjoy!
Linny Lawless grew up in Northern VA, right outside Washington DC. She has over 20 years as a sales operations professional, and 13 years as a biker chick! She has been riding Harleys with her husband and loves the freedom, wildness, and rebellion of the biker world. Living the biker life is tribal, and primal at times.
Linny has also been a book worm ever since she was a young teen. She reads all genres, but the one she loves the most is Romance! Recently characters have begun to talk to her. Scruffy, sexy alpha bikers who belong to a tribe, their club, and the women they fall in love with. They live in a world full of chaos, not unlike reality. But within that world of chaos, they live their lives the best way they can and discover true love.
I’m from a very small town in the Southern part of Tennessee, it’s not huge, but it’s home. I started writing last year, but I’ve always loved to read.
I have been married to my husband for twenty-two years, we have two grown children, and one we sort of adopted, who has given us our first set of grand kids.
You can normally find me curled up with my laptop and my baby girl a 6 foot long Ball Python working on my next book.
In 6th grade I wanted to be a singer. In high school I wanted to be a lawyer, an astronaut and then a house wife when I thought I was going to marry my high school sweetheart. Then I wanted to be a pilot but found out I was too short to fly. So, I decided to become a photographer. When that didn’t work out, I decided to be a writer.
