About the Author
Allison Rose is a novelist and screenwriter born and raised in Los Angeles. Tick, the first in her young adult science fiction series, tackles mental illness, artistry, and violence - themes close to Allison's heart. It has been followed by Vice, part two of the Tick Series, and is based in a versed interpretation of near-future L.A. While Allison's stories vary in genre, her focus centers on the struggles of complex female characters and the deconstruction of clichés and tropes about women. She has used her twenty years of graphic design experience to create her own book covers, including all three volumes of Made In L.A. She is a founding member of Made in L.A. Writers.

The Made in L.A. indie author co-op is a Los Angeles-based group of writers dedicated to the support and appreciation of independent authors. While our styles, themes, and story locales differ, our work is strongly influenced by our hometown and underpinned by the diverse culture and life of L.A. Indie authors face formidable challenges: fragmented audiences, intense competition in a crowded market, and traditional publishers' deep pockets. Increasing the visibility of our books continues to be uphill climb. Going the independent route can also be lonely. We came together to offer mutual support, to raise our voices together, and showcase burgeoning indie author talent in the Los Angeles area and beyond.
Dario Ciriello is a professional author and editor, and the founder (2009) of Panverse Publishing. Dario's first novel, "Sutherland's Rules," a crime caper/thriller with a shimmer of the fantastic, was published in 2013. "Free Verse and Other Stories," a collection of his short Science Fiction work, was released in June 2014. His 2015 novel, a supernatural suspense thriller titled "Black Easter," pits love against black magic and demonic possession on a remote, idyllic Greek island. Dario is currently at work on a new thriller. Dario's nonfiction book, "Aegean Dream," the bittersweet memoir of a year spent on the small Greek island of Skopelos (the real "Mamma Mia"! island), was an Amazon category #1 for several months in 2012. "Drown the Cat: the Rebel Author's Guide to Writing Beyond the Rules" (Panverse, July 2017) is his second nonfiction work. In addition to writing, Dario, who currently lives in the Los Angeles area, offers professional editing, copyediting, and coaching services to indie authors.
