I so enjoyed meeting them all and produced many wonderful images for each of them.

I have included here a short bio of each lady, hope you enjoy meeting them too! Vancouver obviously rocks the publishing scene!


Eileen Cook is a multi-published author with her novels appearing in eight languages. Her books have been optioned for film and TV.  She spent most of her teen years wishing she were someone else or somewhere else, which is great training for a writer.

Her newest book, THE HANGING GIRL, will be out in October 2017.

She’s an instructor/mentor with the Simon Fraser University Writer’s Studio Program.

Eileen lives in Vancouver with her husband and two very naughty dogs and no longer wishes to be anyone or anywhere else.


Alyson McLayne is a mom of twins and an award-winning writer of contemporary, historical and paranormal romance. She’s also a dog lover and cat servant with a serious stash of dark chocolate. After getting her degree in theater at the University of Alberta, she promptly moved to the West Coast of Canada where she worked in film for several years and met her prop master husband.
Alyson has been nominated for several Romance Writers of America contests, including The Golden Heart, The Golden Pen, The Orange Rose, Great Expectations, The Molly’s and The Winter Rose.
Her debut historical romance, HIGHLAND PROMISE, will be published by Sourcebooks in October, 2017.

Also check out her romance “Fabrizio Bride” set in sizzling, sexy, Santa Barbara!



Kelly Charron is the author of horror, psychological thrillers and urban fantasy novels.

All with gritty, murderous inclinations and some moderate amounts of humor. She spends far too much time consuming true crime television (and chocolate) while trying to decide if yes, it was the husband, with the wrench, in the library.

She has written a YA psychological thriller called PRETTY WICKED about Ryann Wilkanson, a 15-year-old girl living in the small town of Dungrave County, Colorado who dreams of being an infamous and prolific serial killer––all the while keeping her dark deeds secret from her detective father and his shrewd partner.

With much more to tell in this story, she has written a sequel to PRETTY WICKED titled WICKED FALLOUT, which takes place 12 years after the slew of murders in the small town of Dungrave. It can be enjoyed as a standalone novel or as part of the Pretty Wicked series. Available now.

She has also completed two urban fantasy YA novels (DARKEST SHADOW and BREAKING THE WILDES) about witches, magic, malevolent spirits and, of course, murder which have yet to be released. Stay tuned

She lives and writes in Vancouver, Canada with her husband and their fat cat Moo Moo, who insists on sitting on the keyboard and begging for people food
