Braxton DeGarmo, MD

“A Zealot’s Destiny” – a political thriller (MedAir Series #5)
“Wrongfully Removed” – a medical thriller (MedAir Series #4)
“The Silenced Shooter” – a political thriller (MedAir Series #3)
“Rescued and Remembered” – a thriller (MedAir Series #2)
“Looks that Deceive” – a medical thriller (MedAir Series #1)
“Indebted” – a story of hope and redemption
“The Militant Genome” – a medical thriller

Braxton can’t lay claim to wanting to be a writer all his life, although his mother and seventh grade English teacher were convinced he had what it would take. He went to Duke University, earned a Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Engineering with a major in Bio-Medical Engineering, and followed that with medical school at the University of Cincinnati. After a residency in Emergency Medicine at Madigan Army Medical Center, he served tours as the Chief, Emergency Medical Services at Fort Campbell, KY and as a research Flight Surgeon at Fort Rucker, AL. Who had time to write?

By the late 1990′s, his professional and family life had settled down, somewhat, and his mother once again took up her mantra, “Write a book. You’re a good writer.” Yet, with no experience in writing anything other than technical articles, he hesitated to try his hand at fiction. That changed in 1997 when the local newspaper held a writing contest for Valentine’s Day. Out of 1100 entries, he made it to the top five finalists and realized that maybe he could write fiction after all.

Robert Treskillard

Robert Treskillard is a Celtic enthusiast who has been crafting stories from his early youth, is a software developer, graphic artist, and sometime bladesmith. It all began when Robert’s son wanted to learn blacksmithing and sword-making. The two set out to learn the crafts and in the process were told by a relative that they were descended from a Cornish blacksmith. This lit the fire of Robert’s imagination, and so welding his Celtic research to his love of the legends of King Arthur, a trilogy was forged—Merlin’s Blade, Merlin’s Shadow, and Merlin’s Nightmare—the books of The Merlin Spiral, published by Blink Young Adult Books, an imprint of HarperCollins.

Steve Perron Performing This Weekend
