Paul Bielaczyc


Paul Bielaczyc in his own words: "I have been drawing and whatnot since as long as I can remember. Any spot in my school notebooks that didn't have notes were filled with sketches. I drew mostly from the D&D adventures that my brother ran, as well as the fantasy books I was reading. I did a few pieces based on Terry Brooks' Shannara series, but focusing on being a nerd, I didn't have much time for art in high school.

When I got to college I dual majored in Computer Science and Art History...

Dan dos Santos


At an early age it was pretty apparent that drawing was what I was good at. I spent nearly all of my spare time drawing my favorite cartoon characters with my older sister.

I am a 22 year veteran of both the US Army and the NY Army National Guard, and served in Iraq in 2005. I live and work in Upstate New York.

It all started when I was watching "The Walking Dead" with a friend and she grew irritated at my constant "That's not right!" or "That's impossible!" She challenged me to write something better, and almost a dozen books later, here I am.

My books range from Military Science Fiction to Space Opera to Fantasy, and some comedy thrown in. If you're looking for something to take you away for a day, my books are it!
