Before making the jump to full-time writing, Dayton was a software developer, having discovered the private sector after serving for eleven years in the U.S. Marine Corps.

She also has a humor collection, Random Musings from the Funny Girl. As G.J. Koch she writes the Alexander Outland series and she’s made the most of multiple personality disorder by writing novels, novellas, novelettes, and short stories in all the genres out there and under a variety of other pen names as well, including Anita Ensal, Jemma Chase, A.E. Stanton, and J.C. Koch, all with stories featured in excellent anthologies, available now and upcoming.

BRIAN KOSCIENSKI developed his love of writing from countless hours of reading comic books, losing himself in the different worlds and adventures within the colorful pages. He had minor successes early in his career by getting a few short stories published in independent ‘zines before teaming up with Chris Pisano and Jeff Young to form The Novel Guys. Together they have logged many hours writing novels, stories, articles, comic books, reviews, and the occasional ridiculous haiku.
