Massey has also published short stories in magazines. Massey is one of the founding members of the blog, MagicalWords.net. Magical Words is dedicated to helping newer writers with all aspects of the craft and business of writing, and a book based on the blog, How To Write Magical Words: A Writer’s Companion was published by Bella Rosa Books in 2011. Massey lives in South Carolina with her husband and son. She works as a middle school librarian. Hobbies include belly dancing and playing a pirate at Renaissance fairs.
Born and raised in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Darin Kennedy still remembers watching Star Wars at the local drive-in when it came around the first time and it’s all been downhill from there.
A graduate of Wake Forest University and Bowman Gray School of Medicine, he completed his residency in family medicine in the mountains of Virginia, then served eight years as a United States Army physician, before returning to North Carolina where he works a family physician. He wrote the majority of his contemporary fantasy novel, Pawn’s Gambit, during his yearlong deployment to Iraq in 2003 and this homage to the game of chess as well as every superhero comic you’ve ever read has finally seen the light of day as of October 2016 from Falstaff Books.
Falstaff Books is a digital and print publishing company based in Charlotte, NC dedicated to bringing to life the best in fantasy, science fiction, horror, mystery, and dramatic literature. We love bringing amazing stories to light and giving incredible writers a voice. The battered, ignored, rejected “misfit toys” of fiction are all welcome at Falstaff Books, where we understand that every scar is a story and only with different voices can harmony be created.
Founded in January 2016 by three experienced professionals in the publishing field, self-publisher and small press author John G. Hartness, editor and anthologist Jaym Gates, and author and editor Jay Requard, Falstaff quickly became known for its activism and support of writers, readers, and the greater creative community publishing three anthologies, including the WeAreNotThis – Carolina Writers for Equality, and a number of wide-ranging genre novels in its first year.
We are excited to see meet these Falstaff Books authors in person on Saturday, October 21st at this year’s Geek Gala.
