Ed Robertson is a writer of science fiction and fantasy under the somewhat lengthier name Edward W. Robertson. He is best known for his post-apocalyptic Breakers series, but his expansive lightsaber collection surely rates a close second.
Like most authors, he has lived places and had jobs. Currently, he lives in Los Angeles, and his job is writing books, which is excellent. When he is not writing, he is usually walking his dogs, which are as ill-mannered as they are small, or blathering about self-publishing, which he finds fascinating to a truly nerdy degree.
Bestselling author Jason Andrew Bond grew up in Oregon and currently lives in Washington state with his wife and son. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature degree from the University of Oregon and an MBA from the University of Colorado. When his first novel, Hammerhead, unexpectedly reached bestseller status, he dedicated twenty-five percent of his profits to disabled U.S. veterans. Jason's third novel, Hammerhead Resurrection, is currently in editing. Jason takes a hands-on approach to writing. When SCUBA research couldn't wait for summer, he found himself certifying in Puget Sound's frigid January waters. Outside of writing and his family, martial arts are an important part of his life. At eighteen years of age, he entered an Aikido dojo for the first time, and has since trained in Jeet Kune Do, Tae Kwon Do, Shudokan Karate, Goshin Jutsu, Judo, and Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu. (Lyndatrue)
