Samatha Armstrong

Sitting at the bottom of the world in which she biasedly regards is the most beautiful country on the planet, Samantha spends her days immersed in the fiction world and only spares a few hours for all the real stuff.

Samantha writes multiple genres, but mostly New Adult Romances. Living in Auckland, New Zealand with her boyfriend and dog, she reluctantly emerges from her world of writing to enjoy long walks on the beach (literally), spending time with friends and family and drooling over book boyfriends, much to her real boyfriends dislike. (A running joke.)

Half Life

Tui Allen

Tui

Tui Allen was born in 1952 in Te Awamutu, an inland town in the Waikato region of New Zealand. At age six catastrophe transformed her family. After a year of turmoil, she spent the rest of her childhood growing up in a large his/hers/theirs family of “typical Auckland yachties.”

Her first marital home was a small classic sailing boat in which she sailed the South Pacific. There she came face to face with the cetaceans who influenced her life.

Approaching her fifties she felt the pull of home and returned to the Waikato to live in the countryside near the town of her birth, the perfect environment for the cycling she now enjoys.

She has worked at motherhood, teaching, web design and writing and has published children’s picture books, poetry and stories as well as many web sites. Ripple was her first novel.

Katherine Hayton

rine

 

Katherine Hayton is a middle-aged woman who works in insurance, doesn’t have children or pets, can’t drive, has lived in Christchurch her entire life, and resides a two-minute walk from where she was born.

For some reason, she’s developed a rich fantasy life.

To confuse readers, Katherine also publishes under the pen name Lee Hayton (a USA Today bestselling author.) The horror of the world knowing her middle name is outweighed by the convenience of fitting the shorter nom de plume onto book covers. Something she now wishes she’d discovered and implemented far sooner.

Katherine’s latest novel is Cupcakes and Conspiracies, the first entry in a new Cozy Mystery series–Sweet Baked Mysteries, and is available for preorder now. It’s set in the gorgeous township of Hanmer Springs, which is a ninety-minute drive from her base in Christchurch and her favorite holiday destination in New Zealand.

Lee Hayton

Lee Hayton (a USA Today bestselling author) is the nom-de-plume of Katherine Hayton–a middle-aged woman who works in insurance, doesn’t have children or pets, can’t drive, has lived in Christchurch her entire life, and currently resides a two-minute walk from where she was born.

For some reason, she’s developed a rich fantasy life.

Lee’s latest releases are a humorous urban fantasy series called Magic Dude (yeah, the explanation is in the title) and Nerves of Steel, which is a new urban fantasy series about a wise-cracking cyborg, an extremely angst-ridden thirteen-year-old vampire, and a cat.

Both series are pretty awesome but if you want to form your own opinion, pre-order them now!

If mystery/thrillers are more your bag, then check out her real name authorship Katherine Hayton where you’ll find mysteries set (mainly) in her hometown of Christchurch.

Ryland Thorn

I write intense, action-packed stories filled with demons, where even the hero can be motivated by rage or hate.

Beyond writing, I read just about everything, from urban fantasy through to thrillers, dystopian and horror stories. I’m lucky enough to be part of the ground-breaking Phoenix Prime author program, which is leading a fundamental change in the digital publishing world.

When not reading or writing, I’m either on my bike or in my kayak exploring the spectacular Nelson-Tasman region of New Zealand, which is where I live.
