Judith Barban
Judith Barban, linguist, French professor, and concert pianist, lives in Tega Cay, SC with her husband and fellow pianist Eugene.

Her research into the mediaeval writings of Marie de France, her music, and passion for fishing in the Canadian wilderness have inspired fiction about relationships and the beauty of nature.
Charlie Burnette, attorney, actor, dancer, tri-athlete, and father of four lives in Rock Hill, SC, with Marcia, his wife of thirty years.

Decades of practicing law have given him deep insights into human nature and its dark side... His observations have triggered fiction exploding with anger, fear, redemption, and justice.

Charlie Burnette
