Shining the Light On...Pippa Jay, Philip Hoy & Shelli Rosewarne-- Preditors & Editors 17th Annual Reader's Poll Nominees

The 17th Annual Preditors & Editors Reader's Poll Awards are underway and we have a bevy of talent all around! To honor their nominations and give you  sneaky Le Peeky into the pure awesome they are, I'm shouting them out every day!

A stay-at-home mum of three who spent twelve years working as an Analytical Chemist in a Metals and Minerals laboratory, Pippa Jay bases her stories on a lifetime addiction to science-fiction books and films. Somewhere along the line a touch of romance crept into her work and refused to leave. In between torturing her various characters, she spends the odd free moments trying to learn guitar, indulging in freestyle street dance and drinking high-caffeine coffee. Although happily settled in historical Colchester in the UK with her husband of 21 years, she continues to roam the rest of the Universe in her head.

Pippa Jay is also a committed member of the SFR Brigade, a community of science fiction romance authors dedicated to writing and promoting the very best of the genre.

Shelli Rosewarne had always had a dream in the back of her head about wanting to be a writer. However, like with so many things, life and paying the bills got in the way and she worked in various jobs from call centers to shops to offices. She eventually realized that life is too short not to try and follow your dreams, and has since had two stand alone novellas published with Breathless Press, along with several submissions in anthologies, and various works in progress in the pipeline. Yup, she's having to pinch herself as well! She's currently lucky enough to live in Edinburgh, where she can be constantly inspired by Scottish folklore and see castles every day. When not writing she loves reading, music and photography.
