RICKY DRAGONI http://www.rickydragoni.com

I’m originally from Puerto Rico but have spent half of my life in Iowa. My favorite authors include Edgar Allan Poe and Gabriel Garcia Marquez. My books are based on reality but sprinkled with a good dose of faerie dust. I hope my books can be entertaining but also thought provoking.



HOLLY WELCH holly.welch@gmail.com
Holly grew up in West Des Moines, daughter of popular author Henry Gregor Felsen. After retiring from teaching in 2006, Holly republished the 6 car books, answering the requests from many fans. She also reinvented herself as a professional photographer, graphic designer, illustrator, publisher, private investigator, and swan advocate.


A former elementary librarian, Connie, has been a devoted advocate for children’s literacy.  Her love of sharing stories with children culminated with the publication of her first book, “A Friend Named William”, written for the youngest reader.  She’s following up with “The Long Walk” which will be released fall 2018.


JORDYN MERYL meryljordyn@gmail.com
Crossing many genres, Jordyn Meryl spins chronicles of romance, paranormal and fantasy, for they are stories worth telling, even at the risk of revealing true feelings.


Since publishing my women’s contemporary novel A Case of Hearts in the fall of 2013, I’ve had incredible experiences. Being able to talk to groups at libraries, community centers, women’s meetings, and conferences. I’ve attended many craft and vendor shows. I’ve enjoyed meeting many readers and writers on this journey. Publishing my first novel had been a dream come.


KARLA WRIGHT Karla@WrightSources.com
Karla enjoys family, Iowa and American history.  Her genealogy research uncovered the intriguing stories of the Ankeny family and the prominent roles they played in Iowa history.  “Iowa’s Devoted Daughter” is historical fiction.  Karla is a member of DAR and various heritage societies.


DAVID FURNEAUX funox49@gmail.com
David Furneaux is a first time author. He’s a veteran who’s had careers in association management, human resources and business development. He’s a recovering history major who spent over five years developing Numbland Security, a national security romance series. Yes, some think that’s an oxymoron. You be the judge.
