My Writer Friends
One of the rare and elusive creatures known as a girl geek, AJ Ryder is an avid gamer, a voracious reader, and a lover of all things magical and fantastical. After years of thinking up sexy stories and hot, sensual characters of varying ilk in her head, she has decided to use her geeky, super powers for good and breathe life into them at last for the reading enjoyment of all.
When I write something, I feel as if I've taken the thoughts and done something productive with them rather than just let them bounce around my skull all day. That's how all my stories start; I see or hear something that triggers a "what if" moment - and then it plays out into a whole production. If I can keep going with it, it becomes a book idea.
I’m A.M. Olenick and I was born & raised in NJ, USA, where I still reside with my family. I’m a boy mom, a dog mom, a coffee-o-holic, and a lover of tattoos, the beach, sunflowers, roses, and all things Christmas. I’m a hopeless romantic and an avid romance reader turned author writing paranormal romance and contemporary romance. My stories range from sweet to steamy & everything in between. In my world, you can find sexy, foul-mouthed alpha-type men, vampires, and shifters and smart & sassy heroines who always get their happy ending.
Born and raised in California, I first discovered my love of writing while taking a creative writing class during my Senior year of high school. What started off as an elective to fill empty gaps in my easy-peasy year soon turned into an obsession, and I have not stopped writing in the 21 years that have followed. I dipped my toe into the waters by way of my Primordyan Chronicles, and I have only continued to grow as an author.
Having moved onto the next chapter of my writing career, I am now a historical romance author with Scarlet Lantern Publishing. I am excited to breathe life into an entirely new cast of characters, and I simply cannot wait to share them all with you!
When I’m not toiling away on my writing, I can be found spending time with my supportive husband and our inquisitive daughter in Minnesota where we make our home with our very spoiled cats. I also love to bake, draw, and dabble in sewing.

Reader, writer, and lover of all things romance. A Midwest girl with simple tastes and dirty thoughts. If I'm not busy clicking away at my laptop with an iced coffee in hand, I'm most likely surrounded by hot wheels and the love of my hubby and son.
The Ardent Homesteader
Hi, my name is Kristin. I live in New York's beautiful Hudson Valley with my husband, Dave, and our three boys. We began our homesteading journey in 2010 with a modest flock of chickens (which we like to call the gateway animal). Over the years we have expanded to raise a small herd of Milking Devon Cattle, heritage breed pigs, and yes, more poultry. Mostly it is for our own consumption, just like our fruits and vegetables, but certain things have also become part of the business, such as pork shares.
I love to cook, bake, and experiment in the kitchen. A few years ago, after I made my first batch of caramel and found it not quite what I was looking for, I decided to play around. It took a few tries to get it to match what I had imagined the perfect caramel to be, but when I did...WOW.
Caramel sauce became my signature gift and was often requested by friends and family. After I gave some to the wonderful farmer whose CSA* I am a member of, he suggested I sell it at the farm. It took a year of planning, research, and a lot of hard work to get The Ardent Homesteader off the ground; but with encouragement from my friends, family, Guy & Nadine at Blooming Hill Farm and Tom & Denise at North Plank Road Tavern, Cara-Sel was born.

Meadow Blues Coffee
Meadow Blues is a monument to my love for Blues music. With music growing more diverse by the day, and the world quickening its pace, I wanted to make sure there was a place where our roots aren’t being forgotten. Where the Blues can live for years to come.
We’re located at 8 Greycourt Ave. We serve coffee, tea, smoothies, craft beer, wine, and cider YOUR CHOICE. Our Meadow Blues bites and pastries are lip smack'n that pair well with our Signature Drinks.
