Timewalkerauthor is the online identity of aspiring author Charles Arthur.
I was born in Beckley, West Virginia, where I lived for the next two decades. I graduated from Appalachian Bible College in 2002 with a degree in Bible, intending to plant churches overseas; but I opted not to pursue that path. I moved to Virginia in 2003, and entered the field of Corrections, working as a detention officer for the next seven years. At the end of this extended course in human nature, I returned to West Virginia and began my second career, in Mental Health, working with difficult-to-treat cases at a mental health council.
I have been writing since the age of fourteen, beginning with fanfiction and progressing to original fiction, mostly in the science-fiction genre. In recent years I have begun to branch out into mainstream fiction, as well. I write for the love of it, and aspire to publish my work, as well.
I currently live in my hometown of Beckley, West Virginia, with my wife, Rachel, and children, Emma, Ethan, and Marley.
Guest contributor Cyndera is the online identity of writer and information specialist Aileen Marshall. From her own blog:
“I’ve been writing since I was about twelve years old, mostly poems and some fan fiction with friends (that you really, really don’t want to read). I published professional articles related to library & information science in general.
I love writing for a lot of reasons, but the biggest one is probably because I want to give people what so many of my favorite writers have given me: worlds to dream about! Thanks to Bill Bryson, Donna Leon, John Scalzi, Orson Scott Card, and many others for keeping imagination alive, and thanks to my friends and family for believing in me. I owe you so much that there’s no possible way I could ever pay it back (but I promise you will all be featured in one story or another :P)” ~Aileen
