The Author: The writing team of Timothy James Beck is made up of four writers, who meet as a group twice a year, but write their novels in tandem using the Internet.

Jim Carter lives where he was raised, in Long Beach, California, with his partner of twelve years, Bill, and their golden retriever, Hailey. Jim works as a special education administrator for a large school district in Southern California, slaying dragons and fighting for the forces of Good instead of Evil. Jim has a Bachelor's degree in Theatre and a Master's degree in Special Education.

Born in Pennsylvania, Timothy Forry received his B.A. in English Literature and Postmodern Theory from Hampshire College, Amherst, Massachusetts. Timothy lives in Connecticut, where he and his partner Paul run a design firm. He has had several poems and works of short fiction published. His novella "The Vampire Stone," written under the name Timothy Ridge, is part of Kensington's MIDNIGHT THIRSTS collection (September 2004).

Timothy J. Lambert is from Maine via Manhattan. He now lives in Houston with his dogs Rexford G. Lambert, Pixie P. Lambert, and the dogs he fosters for Scout's Honor Rescue. In addition to the TJB novels and the two novels he co-authored with Becky Cochrane, his short story "The End of the Show" was published in Alyson's BEST GAY LOVE STORIES 2005, and his short story "The Dance" was published in Alyson's BEST GAY LOVE STORIES NEW YORK CITY in 2006. He also wrote the introduction to Cleis Press's BEST GAY EROTICA 2007. Timothy and Becky edited an anthology of short stories, FOOL FOR LOVE: NEW GAY FICTION, for Cleis Press.

A graduate of the University of Alabama, Becky and her husband have lived in Texas for twenty-one years, where they share a house with two insane but lovable dogs. In addition to the five TJB novels, she co-authored THE DEAL with Timothy J. Lambert. As Cochrane Lambert, she and Timothy also wrote THREE FORTUNES IN ONE COOKIE. The two recently edited an anthology of short stories, FOOL FOR LOVE: NEW GAY FICTION, for Cleis Press. Becky's novels A COVENTRY CHRISTMAS and A COVENTRY WEDDING are available online and wherever books are sold. She is currently focusing on her art while plotting a third novel.
