Host F.M Sherrill is a novelist and avid bullshitter that’s why she lives in L.A.. She’s been writing for as long as her ancient mind can remember, devouring tales like an anemic vampire roaming the streets in hot pink heels, always thirsty for more. Her most recent venture has been publishing the dark fantasy novels Ivory, Black Sunrise, and Cry Wolf. When she’s not writing, she’s making steampunk weapons, blogging on girlswritingcoffee, sewing giant Doctor Who plushes on her and Becca’s Etsy girlssewingstuffs, making costumes for some film bloke or cosplayer, and sculpting/casting movie prop replicas while gardening in her urban apartment. Her favorite tools? A soldering iron, a blowtorch, a band saw, a sonic screwdriver, a replicator and an active imagination.
Host Becca C. Smith received her Film degree from Full Sail University and has worked in the Film and Television industry for most of her adult life. In 2010 Becca published her first novel, Riser followed by the sequel, Reaper, in 2011, and the finale, Ripper in 2013. In 2012 Becca wrote the children’s novel Alexis Tappendorf and the Search for Beale’s Treasure. She is also the co-author of the teen graphic novel Ghost Whisperer: The Haunted. Most recently, Becca released Atlas, the first book in a new Urban Fantasy series. She currently lives in Los Angeles, CA with her husband, Stephan and their two cats Jack and Duke.
