14. Lark Neville
Lark Neville has always adored words. Even as a child she was consumed with reading mysteries and horror novels. She found a home in the darkness, friends in the monsters, hope in the horror. Through much of her life she expressed her own darkness and pain through her poetry. She went on to channel her love of language into a career as a newspaper reporter and technical writer.

But her muse wouldn’t quiet. Her heart always longed for something more creative. She had to acknowledge her passion lies in weaving tales where monsters are beautiful, magic is alive, and being a little off of the norm might give you insights that save your life.

So this year she made serious efforts to branch out from poetry and nonfiction into short stories. She’s also begun working on her first novel. You can see her work at She can also be found on Twitter and Facebook. She hopes you’ll visit her online and say hello. She can always use a few more friends to help her get through the night.

If you chance to read more of my lil’ yarns, you may see that I turn up occasionally in their pages. You may ask why that is? Well, they’re my adventures after all, aren’t they?
These days I spend my time, plinking songs on my guitar and singing on my porch to the neighbors, painting and drawing erotic art most amateurishly, chasing and catching the sashaying tails of the doxies that happen to cross my path, all the while typing endless lines of prose looking for literary gems amongst the dross of my imagination.
