Genre: Humour

Web site: http://www.biffmitchell.com 

Publisher: Jacobyte Books

Biff lives at the absolute edge of the world with a paper maché fish named Betts and a psychotic cat named Pico. From Biff's living room window, you can see the elephant that carries the world around through chaos.

Biff has two novels published: Heavy Load, the world’s first laundromance; and Team Player, a spoof on the IT industry and work in the new millennium.  

His third novel, set 200 years in the future, is a satire about corporate business and life on the Internet. 

Biff is well into his fourth novel, which is set in Saint John, New Brunswick 75 years in the future. This one spoofs the fast food industry. 

Biff had a book of short stories, Clearings, published at ShortStuffBooks in Arkansas, but the publisher went under … right after the book received a four star review in Inscriptions Magazine. An expanded version of Clearings is presently available free of charge at Biff’s web site.


Rene Natan (aka Irene Gargantini)

Genre: fiction, romantic suspense

Personal Website: http://www.vermeil.biz/ 

When she was a little girl Rene Natan sat endless hours listening to her grandmother’s stories: the pretty princess disappeared…the little shepherd lost count of his sheep…a terrifying monster kidnapped all the children down in the valley…

Now it’s her turn to take others into the wonderful world of fiction. She has done so with Mountains of Dawn (1999), followed by Cross of Sapphires (2002), and The Collage (2003)—all novels of the romantic suspense genre. Killing on Mount Yula (2003) is a suspense- filled short story for teenagers. Embedding science into a framework of fantasy resulted in the short story A pair of Wings for Christmas (2003).

The Collage is an e-publication of Creative Guy Publishing. Operation Woman in Black is scheduled to appear in 2005, while The Jungfrau Watch is in preparation.

Rene Natan makes her home in Strathroy, Ontario, where she lives with her husband, Martin. Rene Natan is a pen name. Visit her at http://www.vermeil.biz  or contact her at renenatan@aol.com.
