Over the summer I will be updating author’s details in the Cafe and Bookstore and also sharing their bios, books and recent reviews with you in this series…
Meet Charles E. Yallowitz
Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn’t working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. Truthfully, his tales of adventure are much more interesting than his real life, so skip the bio and dive into the action.

A recent review for Savagery Book Six War of Nytefall
This was an excellent addition to the series, with plenty of action, a good dose of humour sprinkled throughout, and even a few tender moments.
Meet Fiona Tarr
Fiona would be the first to admit a fascination with religion and the impact it has on culture, both historically and today. Her first two complete series are full of elements of mythology and theology set in various historical time periods. They are character driven stories with all the elements of the classic heroic/epic fantasy genre.
Fiona lives in Noosa, Australia with her husband and two adult sons, where she runs a small family business involving tourism and watersports.
When she is not writing, you will likely find her kitesurfing, stand up paddle surfing, travelling or volunteering in some capacity.
Fiona is the great niece of Australian literary author George Johnston, who is best known for his book My Brother Jack which was made into a mini series with the ABC. Although Fiona’s writing style is unlike her Uncle George’s literary form, she writes a compelling, contemporary fantasy novel.
Fiona’s focus on faith, philosophy and sociology continues to be the topic of her current series; a young adult fantasy that crosses into sci-fi with magical time travel.

One of the recent reviews for Death Beneath the Covers
With a powerful female lead Ms Tarr flexes her sleuth muscle in her new exciting novel.
With great characters and a riveting plot line, Ms Tarr’s unique knowledge of the landscape brings to life the torrid underbelly of Adelaide.
Being a fan of her previous work, it’s fantastic to see her talents can pivot in a different genre.
Meet Christa Polkinhorn
Born and raised in Switzerland, Christa Polkinhorn has always had the desire to explore the world outside of her beautiful but tiny country. She traveled in Europe, China, Japan as well as South America. Now, she lives and works as writer and translator in southern California. Her interest in foreign cultures informs her work and her novels take place in several countries. She published a volume of poetry (The Path of Fire). Now, she writes and publishes contemporary fiction with a focus on family drama/love stories (The Family Portrait trilogy) and family drama/suspense (The Wine Lover’s Daughter series). Aside from writing and traveling, she is an avid reader and a lover of the arts, dark chocolate, and red wine.
