Tomorrow, I'm moderating a chat with a pair of fantasy authors, Sheri McGathy and Shannah Blondine. I've known Sheri since about 2000 when her book, Elfen Gold was out at the same time as my Death of Jabari. We still hang out on the same fantasy writer's email list.
Here's some info on both ladies and how to get into the chat. I hope you'll join us.
Born in the Buckeye state, Sheri McGathy was uprooted in 1971 and replanted amongst sunflowers, tornadoes, and college football. she says it's a good life.
During the weekdays, Sheri is a Graphic Arts Coordinator/Copy Editor in prepress. In the evenings and weekends, she's a writer (or tries to be. Sometimes that's debatable.) She is also Managing Editor at The Fractured Publisher online.
Besides TWICE UPON AN EVENTIDE, she has short stories and/or novellas in various anthologies:
OMNIBUS A Collection of Fantasy Stories (Contains Dream Realm Winner: The Birth of Spring)
TRESPASSING TIME Ghost Stories from the Prairie (Ravenstone Press or Double Dragon)

THE STYGIAN SOUL
Sheri's novels include:

Shannah Biondine is the author of several novels of historical and paranormal romance as well as three fantasy novellas. She's published with Double Dragon Publishing. Originally a California native, Shannah now lives in Colorado with her husband and children.

A complete list of her titles and more information is available at her author site: http://biondine.homestead.com . Readers may contact her at: sbiondine@ yahoo.com .
Award-winning fantasy authors Shannah Biondine and Sheri L. McGathy team up again, delivering twice the mystical adventure in this enthralling duet, Twice Upon an Eventide. Here are faraway worlds of danger and intrigue, where dark mirrors hold strange and dark secrets.
A Varlet's Bond by Shannah Biondine
Captain Praxis, wyvern rider, former slave turned royal reeve and bounty hunter, has never forgotten her brief partnership with Prince Zavend of Glacia. Years have passed and now find Praxis a wealthy woman and sometime comrade of Zavend's disreputable brother, Vitus. A twist of fate draws all three back to the heart of Glacia, where an evil is spreading across the land. Can anyone or any sworn oath be trusted? Will Praxis find her heart soaring higher than a wyvern or crushed once and for all?
Summersong by Sheri McGathy
Summersong, a magical border Keep created to maintain the fragile peace between Man and Faery, has lost its glory, its grandeur, and its loyal guardians. The land is dark, filled with turmoil. Yet, one bright glimmer of hope still exists. Long ago, Myree, daughter of a proud nobleman, made a childish vow of undying love in a secluded garden to an equally as young Connair. Now grown, both have not forgotten their pledges. When Myree is abducted into a realm of shadows, Connair risks everything in his quest to save her and recover the heart of Summersong.
Twice Upon an Eventide contains two superbly woven fantasy tales of magic, intrigue, and suspense. If you haven't read Biondine and McGathy before, this book is an excellent place to start! Very enjoyable and highly recommended!
