A.J. Garrotto

A.J. Garratto was born in Santa Monica, CA and now lives in Martinez, CA with his wife and two teenage daughters. He works as a freelance writer. He began writing fiction after an eighteen-year career as a Roman Catholic priest, during which he served as a parish priest and retreat director. His life in the ministry is credited with providing a novelist's insight into human nature, with all its heroism and cowardice, its passion for love and life and its shadowy side of withholding affection, obsession with power, and desire for control. In addition to his writing career, he is a partner in a small computer-oriented book and software publishing company (Bridge Learning Systems, Inc.) Drawing on his earlier training in the ministry, he also serves as a part-time Pastoral Associate at his local parish church, Christ the King, in Pleasant Hill, CA.

Angie Daniels

Angie Daniels was born on the South side of Chicago, IL but preferred spending her summers running up and down the streets on the West side with her eight cousins, playing softball, roller skating (with only one skate) and jumping double dutch. At night, she would spend hours creating soap operas with her younger sister until the two drifted off to sleep. Angie attended Maria Montessori. During the fifth grade she started the first school newspaper and later went on to write, direct and star in a Christmas play. It was at that time she began spending her summers filling yellow notepads with love stories. During high school she decided to pursue a career in acting, and landed the starring role as "Puck" in a "Midsummer Nights Dream." During her sophomore year, her mother relocated to Columbia, Missouri, a small college town, where she landed a role in the musical "The Roar of the Greasepaint, The Smell of the Crowd." Her pursuit of acting was short-lived. Shortly after graduation, she married and started a family. She later attended Columbia College, where she received a Bachelor's of Science in Business Administration and went on to pursue a professional career in Human Resource Management. In 1999, the corporation where she was employed as Personnel Manager went out of business. It was at that time Angela decided it was finally time to return to her love of writing. With her husband's blessings, she took a year off to write her first book, Intimate Intentions, which started off as a simple romance novel that later escalated into 542 pages of romantic suspense. After two submissions, Angela was offered a four-book contract with Genesis Press. She currently resides in Wilmington, Delaware with her husband and three children.

Barbara Keaton


My mother, who is the light of my life, says I always wrote stories. She often relays how my stories were about characters with strange names who fought amongst each other, mostly vying for power. I have been writing since I could put pencil to paper! I was born in 1964 in Chicago, and, as a native, I loved my city and could not imagine living anywhere else. I attended Catholic schools up until the twelfth grade, but it was in grammar school, at the hands of the Oblate Sisters of Prividence, where I solidified my love and respect for written words. My maternal grandfather, the late Thomas Hill, instilled in me my passion. At the Oblate's, this little-known order of black nuns taught with an iron hand and truly believed in the future and success of black children. Outside of my mother, I owe much of who I am to my Grandfather and those incredible nuns! In 1987, I received a BA in Communications from Columbia College. After graduation, I worked as a Bus Operator for the Chicago Transit Authority for nearly 3 years. I found this period of my life as one of profound growth in that it allowed me to address and face my fear of success. I resigned in 1990 from CTA and went on to hold various professional positions, mostly in print news and public relations. Professionally, I have nearly 13 years experience in public, government, and community relations. In addition, I've had several articles and editorials published in various publications: Today's Black Woman Magazine; The Chicago Crusader; The Chicago Defender; and The Chicago Reader. My first book, All I Ask, was published by Genesis Press under its Indigo Imprint in 2000. And my second book, An Unfinished Love Affair, also published by Genesis, was released in March, 2002. Currently, I am a Government and Community Relations Officer for the Chicago Transit Authority. In May of 1999, I received my Master of Science in Journalism from Roosevelt Univerity in Chicago. I belong to several civic and professional organizations; namely the Masonic Order of the Eastern Star. In my spare time I am an avid reader, writer and bid whist player. Though I have no children of my own, I do have "babies", my niece and nephew, Stephanie and Matthew; and my Godchildren, Kenny and Lauren. I'm divorced and share my personal space with my cat, General Patton. My personal creo is: I ANSWER TO TWO - MY GOD AND MYSELF!

Cheris F. Hodges

     The writing bug bit hard and early for Bennettsville, SC native Cheris F. Hodges. As a student at Marlboro County High School , Hodges knew she was going to be a writer. She joined the school's newspaper staff and decided journalism was the way to go.
     Upon graduating in 1995, she enrolled at Johnson C. Smith University and majored in journalism, all the while working on her novels.
     While working at the Covington News in
Covington, Georgia
, Hodges wrote and self-published "Searching For Paradise."
     "After covering police and courts all day, I needed an escape. So, I pulled out my laptop and started writing 'Searching,'" she said. Fiction had always been an escape for Hodges, she said.
     After completing her first novel, she tried, unsuccessfully, to find an agent and publisher.  Determined to share her work with the world, Hodges used the internet publisher
Iuniverse.com.

     A year later, she completed her first romance novel, "Revelations." This time, she found an agent and a publisher that saw the value of her work.
     Maryland agent Sha-Shana Crichton signed Hodges to her agency and, within months, she had a two-book deal with Genesis Press Inc.
     "Revelations" went on to become one of Genesis's best sellers. Fans and critics alike lauded her second Genesis Press novel, "Cautious Heart".
     Hodges sticks to her
South Carolina roots in her new novel, "A Love of Her Own," setting it in Columbia
.
     "A lot of people write books about the south and don't really capture the flavor of the
Carolinas . I want to put South Carolina and North Carolina
on the literary map. My next novel is even set in Bennettsville," she said.

     Hodges, 28, is the features editor of The Charlotte Post and resides in Charlotte, NC . She is currently working on her next novel.
     A Love of Her Own, the story of finding a love where you least expect it, is in stores in February 2005.

I.L. Goodwin

Born and reared in the heart of California's Central Valley, I.L. Goodwin began a love affair with books at the age of five while living in Madera with her 81-year-old grandmother, a wise Southerner and survivor of domestic violence. During those lazy summer afternoons spent listening to her grandmother's timeless wisdom, the desire to chronicle the experiences of strong women burned deep within her heart. The death of her own mother years later at the hands of a violent partner allowed what was once held captive to finally be released on paper. At age 13 she wrote her first full-length manuscript, and several years later completed A Perfect Place to Pray, her debut novel. She currently lives in Stockton, Ca., where she is hard at work on her next novel.

Wanda Thomas

When a college history professor asked, "Who in this room thinks that they could be President of the United States?" Wanda Y. Thomas immediately raised her hand, then looked around to see that she was the only person with a hand in the air. As a twenty-four year veteran (or casualty - her words) of the cable television industry, Wanda has worked in various administrative and affiliate sales & marketing management positions. In 1994, God led Wanda to the dusty desert and the decadent city of Las Vegas, Nevada. "Though God may have had a hand in it," says Wanda. "It was actually a home shopping network, which relocated about 100 people from across the country to Las Vegas, and then laid us all off within a month." That experience, and the lessons learned, prompted Wanda to review the goals on her life's list and to pursue the one that said: write a book and get it published. Currently writing for Genesis Press, Inc and their Indigo Romance line, Wanda's first novel TRULY INSEPARABLE was released in hardback form in October 1998, and in soft cover in December 1999. Her second, FOREVER LOVE, was released in November 2000, and a third, SUBTLE SECRETS, was released in June 2001 and was nominated by Romance In Color in the categories of Book Of The Year and Genesis Press Release of the Year. Wanda was also nominated as Author of the Year. Wanda is single and lives in Denver, Colorado with her teenaged son.
