GUESS WHO'S NEW AT ONYXCON 5 !!!!

SHEREE RENEE THOMAS

Known for the Dark Matter Anthology Book Series! Sheree Renee Thomas is a native of Memphis.  A Cave Canem Fellow and a New York Foundation of the Arts Fellow, her short stories, poetry and articles have appeared in various publications, including storySouth, Callaloo, Colorlines, Vibe, Upscale, African Voices, Essence Magazine, and many more.

BRANDON MASSEY




Here's a little about me, Brandon Massey. ("Massey" is not pronounced "macy," by the way.  Think of "mass" instead).  I was born June 9, 1973, in Waukegan, Illinoise.  I grew up in Zion a suburb of Chicago.  I originally self published Thunderland, my first novel, in 1999.  After managing to selll a few thousand copies on my own, Kensington Publishing Corp. in New York offered me a two-book contract, and published a new, revised edition of Thunderland in December 2001.  Since then, I've published up to three books a year, ranging from thriller novels such as The Other Brother, to short story collections such as Twisted Tales, and anthologies such as Dark Dreams.  My newest suspense thriller, Covenant, was published in November 2010.  I've got plenty more stories in the works that I'll publish in the coming years.  I live with my family near Atlanta, GA.
