A. D. Moseley (Admin)
A.D. Moseley is a freelance graphic artist, author, and part-time editor. She enjoys writing primarily fiction in the science fiction and fantasy realms but will occasionally branch out when the urge arises.
As a full time RVer in the US (with far too many pets for her tiny home on wheels), she enjoys traveling and becoming a citizen of a new town and state as often as possible. She also enjoys proving that her English and Art degrees can be used for so much more than teaching (though she has done that too).
Her characters tend to lean towards being very independent and adventurous, much like her. And while these characteristics can be good things, they can also land them in a good deal of trouble. Luckily many of her characters have access to a little magic to help get themselves out again. She however, is not so lucky!
Em Van Moore (Admin)
Em hails from Northern B.C., Canada, where at her day job she is a mild-mannered nurse with flamboyant hair who still giggles whenever she has to say the word “duty”.
She is a cat-mom of four and human-mom of two. She is queer by every definition of the word.
In her spare time she reads, writes, and slowly kills plants by forgetting about them for extended periods.
Em has always loved writing but struggled (as many people do) with motivation and execution. Diagnosed with ADHD when she was 29, she found the secret ingredient to productivity: heavy doses of prescription medication.
Her first novel (2016) was a wonderful learning experience. Her second novel (2019) was an improvement, and she learned even more in the process. Since then, she has spent her spare time (what little of it she has) reading, researching, and thinking about writing.
She is a NaNoWriMo 2021 and 2022 winner and founding member of the Motley Writers Guild.
Her hobbies include hula-hooping, crafting, prepping, climate activism, volunteering, going to music festivals, and general shenaniganary.
She has a complicated relationship with the Oxford comma, and would prefer no one bring it up because they’re hoping to work things out.
Kieran O’Connor (Admin)
Kieran O’Connor is an emerging author from Calgary, Alberta. After graduating from high school, he originally pursued a career in film, driven by his love of storytelling. But when the pandemic hit and people were forced to stay at home, he began writing as a hobby. Two full manuscripts later, and he’s ready to take his craft to the next level.
He is a self-proclaimed geek inspired by all different types of stories, including books, movies, and games. When he’s not writing, he spends time livestreaming on Twitch, speedrunning and attempting to claim the fastest times in many different games. He also enjoys Dungeons and Dragons, a cooperative storytelling experience as much as it is a game.
Kieran’s current project is a Fantasy coming of age story set in the world he created during his numerous Dungeons and Dragons campaigns. Though set in a fictional world, his stories explore very real themes and conflicts that will immerse you in the adventure.
He is a recent graduate of The Writers Studio at Simon Fraser University.
