July may be hot, hot, hot; but our writers are cool, cool, cool!  They’re coming all the way from Hawaii (!) and Massachusetts, so you ought to be here as well.


Kate Elliott has been writing stories since she was nine years old, which has led her to believe that writing, like breathing, keeps her alive.  Her most recent series is the “Spiritwalker Trilogy” ( Cold Magic, Cold Fire, Cold Steel), an Afro-Celtic post-Roman alternate-19th-century Regency icepunk mashup with airships, Phoenician spies, revolution, and the intelligent descendents of Troodons. Her previous series are the “Crossroads Trilogy” (starting with Spirit Gate), “The Crown of Stars” septology (starting with King’s Dragon), and the “Novels of the Jaran”.

She likes to play sports more than she likes to watch them; right now, her sport of choice is outrigger canoe paddling. Her spouse has a much more interesting job than she does, with the added benefit that they had to move to Hawaii for his work. Thus, the outrigger canoes. They also have a schnauzer.

E. C. Ambrose is the author of “The Dark Apostle” series of historical fantasy novels, beginning with Elisha Barber (July, 2013, DAW).  Look for Elisha Magus (DAW, forthcoming in July 2014), and continuing volumes in the series.  Published works include “Spoiler Alert” (non-fiction, Clarkesworld, January 2013), “The Romance of Ruins” (non-fiction, Clarkesworld, March 2012) and “Custom of the Sea,” winner of the Tenebris Press Flash Fiction Contest 2012.  Additional stories are forthcoming in Fireside and through the Penguin Specials e-book program.  The author is also working on YA fantasy series “Anointed by the Enemy”, starting with Kinslayer (in progress).  E. C. is a graduate of the Odyssey Writing workshop, a participant in the Codex on-line neo-pro writers’ workshop, and a member of the Cambridge Science Fiction Writers Workshop.

In addition to writing, E. C. works as an adventure guide.  Past occupations include founding a wholesale business, selecting stamps for a philatelic company, selling equestrian equipment, and portraying the Easter Bunny on weekends.  The author spends too much time in a tiny office in New Hampshire with a mournful black lab lurking under the desk.  E. C. blogs about the intersections between history and fantasy at http ://ecambrose.wordpress.com .  Sample chapters and a short story set in Elisha’s world can found online at theDarkApostle.com.


There will be a raffle for all who donate for admission.

After the event, please join us as we treat our readers for dinner and drinks nearby.
