    About the author Tell us your story? What made you start writing? I’ve been writing since I was knee high to a grasshopper. I remember writing short stories as early as second grade, and used to write fan fiction after seeing movies that I really enjoyed, like Ghostbusters, or The Goonies. Wrote my first novel at the age of twelve, so I’ve always been a writer. I’ve spent the last two decades as a hypnotist and psychotherapist specializing in treating PTSD and have had stellar success in the industry. A few years ago, I started taking a smaller role in my private practice to switch careers and live as a writer, which is the only time I seem to find peace. If I’m not writing, I notice those stories seem to spill over into my personal life, so if you ask me, I’m never more satisfied than when I’m writing. I’ve got a creative itch that drives me batty if I’m not writing. I love the creative process and there’s nothing better than putting a book together. What do you wish other people knew about you? I overcome depression and PTSD symptoms by using a simple behavior modification system that changes the internal default mode emotional frequency vibration. That doesn’t mean that I never feel depressed, but what it does mean is that when the depression takes hold I have the skills to transition the depression from what would be a ten on a 1-10 scale to a four, which… Read More »PD Alleva

    Giancarlo Roversi

      About the author Tell us your story? What made you start writing? I’m a musician and a computer engineer. Since I was a child, I loved art. I dreamt of being a singer and an actor. Maybe it’s a coincidence, but when I was ten years old, I suffered an accident on a small train—I was unable to walk for a year and almost lost a foot. During those months when I couldn’t even get up, I wolfed down dozens of books by Agatha Christie and other authors. I also wrote my first short story. It was in the horror genre, and I always pictured the main character running away from a horde of zombies with the first part of the song “Magnetic Fields I” by Jean Michel Jarré playing as a background music. What are you passionate about? Oh, my passion is music, cosmos, literature, and philosophy. What is one thing that instantly makes your day better? Excellent question. So many things. A good pizza, a good conversation. Also, anything positive related to the Pulstarverse, other earthlings, and the people I care about. Oh, of course, a sublime song, book, or series-movie. If you could choose one superpower, what would it be? Well, I’m not a fan of superheroes, but if I could choose one superpower, it would be to be able to roam the cosmos at my own leisure. Come on, what can beat that? If you had a warning label, what would yours say? Hehe, this is… Read More »Giancarlo Roversi

      Kate Messick

        About the author Tell us your story? What made you start writing? Long story short – I wasn’t getting enough sex in my marriage, so I wrote my husband a guide in the form of a romance novel. It didn’t improve my sex life, but I found I really enjoyed writing. If you’re looking for a bit more: I’ve always been an avid reader. I wrote a terrible novel in high school (USA); my Dad and teachers were brutally honest about it. I was in the special education program because of dyslexia and a hearing impairment, so writing wasn’t easy for me. I put the concept out of my mind and focused on more attainable goals. Fast forward twenty years, I’m now a displaced classical clarinetist living in England – away from my family, my friends, and the orchestra (Symphonic Anime Orchestra) that I founded and wrote a ridiculous amount of music for every year. I’d gone from a career-oriented woman with big goals to basically a decorator wife. It was fun for a bit, but wow, not having my creative outlet got really old, really fast. Which also messed with my marriage. In a fit of rage, I just barfed all my issues into a story and gave it to a friend, who was really encouraging. That led to another book, not about my issues, which led to my first trilogy. Writing words lights up the same happy creativity that music notes did in my brain. I’m still married,… Read More »Kate Messick

        About the author Tell us your story? What made you start writing?  My story is a little complicated. My mum became ill when I was two, leaving her permanently disabled. She was re-learning to do everything I was learning at that age: walking, talking, reading and writing etc. I never got the same chance to learn those things as some other kids because the focus at the time was getting mum better so she could care for me and my older sister. I fell behind and when it came time for me to start school, I couldn’t read, I struggled with writing and I even had some problems with my speech.  I went through school struggling to keep up. I worked on my speech with a speech therapist and it improved but there wasn’t a lot of time at home to improve my reading. My grandpa tried but he had my mum, my sister and my granny who had been diagnosed with alzhimers to look after as well. Eventually, I muddled through. It wasn’t until age 10 when the Harry Potter movie came out. I went to see it and fell in love. I knew my sister had the books, so one day I forced myself to read the first one. I kinda knew the story from the movie so managed to work it all out from there. It took me a year to read the first book  but I did and gradually became faster and more proficient with reading.… Read More »Daisy Hale

        Julebord (The Holiday Party) – Book II : A Story about Recent Events – CORRELATIONS TRILOGY

          Please note that the cover is my interpretation of it and the real book cover is not yet available. Should chief investigator James Wiley Redding of the Norwegian Police suspect that any of the doctors working in the small rural hospital of Godshus, located where a fjord meets the North Sea, might be linked to the gruesome discovery made on a December morning after their annual Julebord (holiday party)? Much more whodunit than a diversified nordic noir novel, JULEBORD is laced with what life is like to work in a small rural hospital, where things and humans occasionally get dirty. Not merely a piece of – at times – a bit upmarket crime fiction, the story brings to the realization that in today’s small global village we are linked to each other in some way – whether we want to be or not and cannot hide from the events that affect us all. Book II : A Story about Recent Events – JULEBORD (The Holiday Party), which takes place between August 26th, 1960 and December 23rd, 2019 is the first published volume of the Correlations Trilogy by David Øybo. WARNING: This story contains sexually explicit scenes and adult language, as well as descriptions of actions by characters some readers might find disturbing, upsetting, or offensive. It is intended for MATURE READERS ONLY. ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK. My Review: This is amazingly written story about a small hospidal’s staff in Godshus, Norway. Taking place through several medical personel perspectives during… Read More »Julebord (The Holiday Party) – Book II : A Story about Recent Events – CORRELATIONS TRILOGY
