About the authors:
NJ Nielsen: NJ needs to write like she needs to breathe. It’s an addiction that she never intends to find a cure for. When you don’t find NJ arguing with Vlad, her muse or writing about the wonderful men in her stories, you’ll find her reading work by other authors she greatly admires. NJ lives in the SE of Qld, Australia with her family who all encourage her writing career even if she does occasionally call them by her character’s names. NJ thinks that anyone taking the time to read her stuff is totally awesome.
Jenn Dease: Jenn Dease is a Chef with a reading and writing addiction. The six bookcases in her bedroom are proof of this. She was born and raised in Pittsburgh with one of those families that have four generations in a four block radius. The Redheads, or her sisters, are the best things in her life. When they want to be.
Jambrea Jo Jones: Jambrea wanted to be the youngest romance author published, but life impeded the dreams. She put her writing aside and went to college briefly, then enlisted in the Air Force. After serving in the military, she returned home to Indiana to start her family. A few years later, she discovered yahoo groups and book reviews. There was no turning back. She was bit by the writing bug.
She enjoys spending time with her son when not writing and loves to receive reader feedback. She's addicted to the internet so feel free to email her anytime.
AC Katt: She lives in New Mexico with her husband and new cat who, just as she does loves paper and words. She got a late start to her writing career but is now in a writing frenzy. Go figure!
Pelaam: Living in clean, green New Zealand Pelaam is a multi-published author of m/m romance and erotica. She's loved writing since childhood and to become an author is a cherished dream come true. She grew up reading fairy tales and watching science fiction, horror and fantasy. When not writing she can be found indulging in her other passions of cookery and wine appreciation.
Cherie Noel: Cherie’s been in love with words since before she drew breath, and doesn’t see that ever changing. She write stories, full stop. Sometimes there’s music with them, sometimes they’re poems, and lately, to her great delight, a plethora of M/M fiction and erotic romance. Yum. Smexy man to the second…or third power…now that’s the kinda math Cherie can get behind!!
The hair curls or frizzes as it will, the eyes are green and tend to look in two different directions—no, really—and the rest is subject to change. You know the guy who didn’t know if he was a butterfly dreaming he was a man or a man dreaming he was a butterfly? Yeah, that’s Cherie, but substitute drag queen for butterfly and wacky, wild ex-Army chick for man.

Storming Love, Flood: Steven and Derrick
I was lucky that Kris Jacen my editor at MLR Press chose me to write one of the stories in the Storming Flood series. My fellow writers and I imagined the flood to occur in Copper’s Creek, a small fictional Texas town between Waco and Austin. My very limited experience with Texas was a few trips to San Antonio and a drive from Albuquerque, where I live, to San Antonio for the Electronic Publishing Industry Conference in March, sometime after I had already turned in the story.
However, with the help of my fellow authors in the Flood Series, I was able to come up with the story of stranded schoolteacher, Steven Hayes and the man who recruited him to the Copper Creek Elementary School, Derrick Trent. Derrick, the fire chief in Copper’s Creek, was delighted to meet Steven in an Austin gay bar. The Austin Public School District recruited Steven from New York City, but laid him off before he even began to teach because the school where he was to be assigned shut down. Derrick was delighted to meet Steven for more than one reason, Steven was smoking hot and Copper’s Creek needed a new elementary school teacher to teach third grade.
Steven accepts the job and moves to Copper’s Creek eventually moving in with Derrick. But Steven is unfamiliar with Texas weather. On a day when the sky is dark with clouds, a school alarm goes off. A flood is coming and Steven must evacuate his class to higher ground at the high school. A little girl from Steven’s class goes missing and Steven stays behind at the school to find her. Can Derrick rescue Josie and Steven in this one hundred year flood, or will Steven lose his new life before it’s barely begun?
Find out what happens to Steven and Derrick in Storming Flood: Steven and Derrick to be released from MLR Press on April 24th. To celebrate the release of Storming Flood: Steven and Derrick I’m giving away one book from my backlist to be drawn from a list of names of those who send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org with Storming Love in the subject line. My backlist is available on, my website www.ackatt.com and on my blog www.ackattsjournal.com. Anyone who sends an e-mail will be subscribed to my once a month newsletter AC’s Kattery where I will post about WIP’s character interviews and snippets of my current novels.
Take a look at the Storming Flood Series, I’m sure you will enjoy reading about Copper’s Creek.
