Novel Rocket proudly announces the newest members of the website's team:

Allen Arnold spent 20 years in publishing overseeing the development of more than 500 novels as founder and Publisher of Thomas Nelson Fiction. He now leads Content & Resources for Ransomed Heart Ministries. Allen is passionate about helping storytellers write from an awakened heart.

Alton Gansky is the Angel Award-winning, Christy Award-nominated author of more than three dozen books. He is the co-director of the premier Blue Ridge Mountain Christian Writers conference.

Brandilyn Collins is a best-selling novelist known for her trademark Seatbelt Suspense®. These harrowing crime thrillers have earned her the tagline "Don't forget to b r e a t h e . . ."® She's also known for her book on fiction-writing techniques, Getting Into Character: Seven Secrets a Novelist Can Learn From Actors.

Lisa Samson, author of Christy award-winnerSongbird, is known for excellence in writing as well as her artistic bent, but more than anything, perhaps, the name Samson brings to mind authentic stories that makes you think. Once asked why she writes, she said, "So people will know they're not alone." Dealing with difficult issues has also given Samson a reputation for courage in her writing.

Thomas Smith is an award winning writer, newspaper reporter, TV news producer, playwright and essayist. In addition to writing he enjoys teaching classes for beginning writers at conferences and local writers’ groups. He has been a joke writer for Joan Rivers and his comedy material has been performed on The Tonight Show.
