Meet NoAnna Brown
NoAnna Brown is a sci-fi genius. I have been reading her Finn of Area 51 and loving every minute of the journey. She is also a gifted editor who has been working with me on my current work – A Dormant Howl. NoAnna is a Wattpad and Inkitt community writer who wants to branch out into professional publishing and I fully support this move. She deserves greater recognition for her talent.
The way she builds her world, characters, and plot is outstanding and should be shared with a broader audience. I believe in her and think she is capable for greatness.

Meet Wendi Dennison
Wendi Dennison is a gem of an author. I found her again on Wattpad and Inkitt. She is a brave soul who puts her personal battles into her fictional world and the characters she has living in it. In her book on both Wattpad and Inkitt – Who are we Fooling she tells a story of two people who are fighting their own inner demons of self discovery and feelings that scare more so one than the other. I love how she has the two main characters develop and grow. I’m taking my time with this one, as it’s a real page turner and it’s so detailed, I don’t want to rush through it and miss a minute of the story.

Meet Melissa Frey
Melissa Frey is multitalented and very knowledgeable in her craft – whether it be in writing, editing, or publishing, she is very helpful and supportive in the indie-author community. Her series is a finely tuned machine of adventure, history, and intrigue. Melissa is being put in the realm of such authors like Dan Brown and James Rollins.
Her immense talent is hard to be challenged and in my opinion she surpasses the aspect of storyteller than anyone else in her genre. She knows when to cut back on the description – she believes in the saying, “less is more.” And she knows when to be colorful as long as long as the story needs to be saturated in bold, bright, colorful language.
I think she’s meant to go a long way. Read book one and two of her The Codex Series.

Meet Avyanna Fe
It’s awe-inspiring to have met this one particular young author who is just a senior in high school. This is why it’s so fabulous there are platforms like Inkitt and Wattpad, because writers like this one – Erica Rose (pen name) can put her work out there into the ether and reach many readers at such a tender age.
She is an incredible talent, knows how to show vs. tell, can build a fantastical world and make it believeable. Her characters are fictional, but 100% relatable and real. I have read both books from her Fallen Series and cannot wait for the third to come out on Wattpad. She is truly a force to be reckoned with.

Meet Julia Vellucci
Julia Vellucci is a 17-year-old girl, born and raised in Mississauga, Ontario. She is Italian by origin. She has never been good at visual art but her mom and younger sister both of whom she admires are definitely her creative endeavours as she was inspired by them to find a way to express her creative side, through writing. She discovered her love for creative writing almost two years ago when she first began to bring fictional characters to life through the written craft thanks to a school book club she was part of and couldn't help but wanted to discover what made her characters unique and carry out their story until the very end. Julia's dream is to be able to inspire readers through her words as she believes words can project more than actions ever could.

Meet Mercedes Thorne
Mercedes found her passion to write when she was going through a rough time in her life. Like many of us, it was her writing that gave her an escape and an outlet to express her feelings without having to share her pain vocally to someone else – a stranger. She used to write as her coping mechanism, and she says it was therapeutic. You could say it was her savior – helped her get through her darkest times. Now her writing has taken on a new form. She now writes to just write – a way to entertain others. She hopes to one day make a career out of writing. But for right now, writing is a fun hobby. All she hopes for is that people enjoy her books as much as she likes writing them.

Meet Victoria Christel Maurice
I started my journey as an author at the age of seventeen. Back then, I still struggled with self-acceptance, and reading allowed me to find an escape. Soon enough, I decided to give writing a try. At first, I didn’t believe that I would even finish a story but in a matter of months, I was already working on two projects. I get inspired by the most random things. However, with every book that I write, I try to send out a message.
Everyone has a way to learn. Some have to experience it while others can just read it off a board and get it. I am blessed to be born in an era in which so many options lay in front of me. I decided to write because, through my stories, someone out there might be able to relate or learn from the events taking place. It looks and sounds like so little, but it’s enough to make a difference.
Writing is an art that I thought would be easy to master, but I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't learning something new every day. Every time I think this is as good as it gets, I'm proven wrong. I hadn't noticed how silenced I was until I started writing. The voice of reason is very often the most silenced one. In my case, I often found myself being ridiculed for my views or my want for understanding both sides of an argument. I had so much to say, but it always felt like I'd be running out of time. I've only just begun yet I already feel like I've accomplished so much in so many ways. Through my stories, I get to be in charge, a choice that was very often taken from me.

Meet Gabriella White
Gabriella began her journey in high school when she took a creative writing class as an English elective and discovered her love and talent for writing stories. She would write poems in class periods that were 42 minutes long without realizing it because it came so naturally to her. She wrote her first unfinished short story in the same class and still didn’t think anything of it until she went to college to pursue her lifelong dream of being a teacher. During her freshman year, she continued writing poems that expressed her emotions, such as “Who I Am,” throughout the year while attending her regular classes simultaneously.
At the end of her sophomore year, she decided to pursue her passion for writing and switched her major to Creative Writing. Gabriella then moved to Wattpad and began publishing her work on the writing platform. Her stories gained some traction, but after a few months, that traction came to a halt. So, she moved to Inkitt after seeing several other Wattpad authors mention it on their profiles. She submitted her first book on Inkitt, and it skyrocketed. Within a month of its submission to the website, the book gained over 300 reads, and within a year, it rose to over 2,000. After witnessing its success, she attempted to publish it through traditional publishing but found that it wasn’t for her, so she went the self-publishing route and has found it to be more successful for her. She published her first book, “The Chosen Ones,” on Amazon on July 10, 2021.

Meet Elicia Roper
All That You Are is my debut novel. My name is Elicia Roper. I live and write in Canada. My love for reading and writing started when I was in elementary school. My love for writing grew by time that I got to High school and wrote a short story for English class. That assignment inspired me to continue writing and to write a novel one day. When the pandemic hit, I decided that I would do what I always dreamed of. Write a novel. I am stoked to share my book, my dream, with all of you. Writing has been therapeutic for me, an outlet for me to finally say the words I could never say out loud. I hope that this book heals you, in the many ways that it has comforted and healed me too.

Meet Jami Leigh Burk
“Pittsburgh Native, Book Architect, Cheese Enthusiast, Okay-ish Writer, Fantastic Story-Teller”. Jami Leigh Burk’s origins are unknown for certain. She currently resides in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with her family and elderly bulldog, Rambo. Not feeling like she ever really belonged on Earth, Jami often looked at the stars and longed for a place that she could be herself. After years of dreaming of this place she decided to create it in her stories. Thirteen years ago, the decision was made to pursue writing as more than just a hobby. Being at home with her then two-year-old daughter, Jami began creating stories with characters that had often originated from dreams. Many stories were started during those first years of novel writing, but none seemed to have what it took to keep
Jami’s attention and therefore none were completed. And, if you ask her, she will say none of them deserved to be finished, which was why they were sentenced to the dreaded “right-click” and “move to trash”.
Fast forward to present day, Jami promised herself to publish her debut sci-fi novel for which she has a love-hate relationship. The beast of a project has caused many sleepless nights and vodka sodas with a twist of limes. Jami has found that her love is for the novelette or novella, and after The Keeper Book One and Two are out, she will stay within the realm of the short story series. The grey hair and wrinkles that come from writing novels have increased expenses for the author, and as a result the hair dye and Botox are cutting into her profits. It’s just a good business decision.

She also very much enjoys chatting with the women of her book club on a daily basis—they keep her sane. Thank goodness!
Halloween and Christmas are her favorite holidays. She also enjoys rainy gray days where you can probably find her somewhere under a hoard of blankets and pillows reading a dark reverse harem while wishing she could jump right into the story itself and live as the MC.
