Author, The Werewolf, the Librarian and I
Writing is a passion for this librarian. Working with books for the last ten years has been a love that naturally led her to develop a passion for writing. She starting by writing poetry and then moved on to short stories — I, Ripper being one of her favorites. Her first novel The Werewolf, the Librarian and I, was just published earlier this year. Taking a note from Adell, Erin began writing her book as a cathartic piece, inspired by her being dumped by a boyfriend. While she may have started-off with the intention of writing a heart wrenching, tear jerking good-bye to the jerk story, it instead turned into a funny story of comedy and romance about her life as a werewolf.
Ms. Rambeau found she loved writing about the supernatural and especially being able to place her own embellished-self as a central character in the story. All the characters in the novel are people who have come in and out of her life, just a little different in appearance and name. Ultimately, she found writing the book a learning experience. An adventure that taught her a lot about herself.
Erin is eager to give credit for her accomplishments to her friends and family that have supported her efforts and made her journey towards becoming a published author possible. It is with great enthusiasm that she intends to make this the first in a series of stories on her own character’s journey through life. She will be in the artist alley throughout StarFest, come by and say hi.
Mark Everett Stone
Author, I left my haunt in San Francisico
Born in Helsinki, Finland (The Land of the Uncommonly Stubborn), Mark Everett Stone arrived in the U.S. at a young age and promptly dove into the world of the fantastic. Starting at age seven with the Iliad and the Odyssey, he went on to consume every scrap of Norse Mythology he could get his grubby little paws on. At age thirteen he graduated to Tolkien and Heinlein, building up a book collection that soon rivaled the local public library’s.
In college Mark majored in Journalism and minored in English. The newspaper business wasn’t for him, so he did what every good writer does: find work in a wide variety of fields that included catering, bartending, and restaurant management. After getting married, he sold Hyundais (before they became popular) and, because he lives in Colorado, Subarus. Eventually he matured enough to be able to sit down and just write. He just recently started working on his second novel, The Judas Line.
