LACE Welcomes Author William Schlichter!

LACE is excited to welcome author William Schlichter!
William Schlichter has a Bachelor of Science in Education emphasizing English from Southeast Missouri State and a Masters of Arts in Theater from Missouri State University. With seventeen years of teaching English/Speech/Theater, he has returned to making writing his priority. Recent successes with scriptwriting earned him third place in the 2013 Broadcast Education Association National Festival of Media Arts for writing a TV Spec Script episode of The Walking Dead.
His full-length feature script, Incinta, was an officially selected finalist in the 2014 New Orleans Horror Film Festival. Incinta received recognition again by being selected as a finalist at the 2015 Beverly Hills Film Festival for a full-length feature. Incinta has advanced in several other script contests, including most recently being an Official Selected finalist in the 2016 Irvine Film Festival. His next life goal would be to see his film transferred from the pages to the screen.
Writing has always been his passion even through traveling, raising twin children and educating teenagers. While he specializes in the phantasmagorical world of the undead and science fiction fantasy stories, William continues to teach acting, composition and creative writing.

LACE Welcomes Author Jared Vaughn!

LACE is excited to welcome back author Jared Vaughn!
Jared Vaughn is the author of the acclaimed novel The Longest Time. It’s a nostalgic story about a unique boy named Charlie, whose love for his childhood friend Lisa leads him to fulfill a heroic purpose. Readers of all ages have unanimously agreed that they “can’t put it down,” and are eagerly awaiting the sequel, Another Time. Jared’s vision extends beyond this series with his company, Time Honored Productions. He will be publishing a collection of short stories by new writers this summer, with more surprises in the works as well. He loves to encourage dreamers in his writing workshops and panels at comic cons and libraries, with a special emphasis on the youth. In addition to his writing and publishing, Jared is also known for his cosplay. He has appeared at many conventions as Marty McFly beginning on Back to the Future Day, October 21st, 2015. He’s quick to make you laugh with his impressions and costumes from all three films, often accompanied by Doc Brown. His cosplay has even included Clark Kent, Neo, and the highly original Mario McFly. Whether he’s riding a hoverboard or writing a story, Jared Vaughn encourages you to take Doc’s advice–“The future is whatever you make it. So make it a good one.”

LACE Welcome Author Jonathan Ondrashek!

LACE is excited to welcome author Jonathan Ondrashek!
Jonathan Edward Ondrashek loves to spew word vomit onto the masses. He’s had an array of poetry, reviews, articles, and interviews published in the past decade. His short stories have appeared in the anthologies Fifty Shades of Slay and Rejected for Content 4: Highway to Hell, and his first book in The Human-Undead War series debuted in April 2016. He also co-edited the horror anthology What Goes Around (KnightWatch Press, June 2016).
If he isn’t working, reading, or writing, he’s probably drinking beer and making his wife regret marrying a lunatic.

LACE Welcomes Dakota Caldwell!

LACE is excited to welcome author Dakota Caldwell.
My name is Dakota Caldwell, though I prefer to go by the name “DC.” At the moment, I am a college student at Kansas State University, studying Mechanical Engineering. Realistically, I spend very little of my time actually doing schoolwork. I’m part of the Navigators, an on-campus ministry, in which I serve as a Bible Study leader. I also do sound tech at a local church, take theology courses through a different local church, and am involved in planing my wedding. Oh, and I write.
I’ve been writing for literally as long as I can remember. In fact, I have several stories that are in my Dad’s handwriting because I wasn’t old enough to write yet. I started aggressively pursuing publication my senior year of high school, and finished my first full-length manuscript that year. Since then, I have completed four more manuscripts, all of which have had equal success getting published. As frustrating as it can get sometimes, I’ve learned a ton from the process, and am far from giving up.

LACE Welcomes Author Angel Edenburn!

LACE is excited to welcome author Angel Edenburn back!
A word from Angel –
“Hello all! I am a poet, writer, Gothic Fusion dancer, artistic type, and fur mom to my menagerie. I live near Manhattan, Kansas (the Little Apple) and my books are set here in my home state. My characters tend to be adults. Not models. Not teenagers. My characters just happen to be paranormal. So, welcome to my strange and wonderful world. Below are my links to my current books in print and available in eBook format. I write my adult stories under the name Angel Edenburn and my not-so-adult stories under the name Gena Mantz.”
