More on our Guest
The Founders of RomCon-
Michele Callahan:
Take your average 7-year-old small town girl - throw in Sleeping Beauty, a dash of Star Wars, and a pinch of Ghostbusters. Only then will you begin to understand the twisted wanderings of Michele's mind. An author and life-long bookworm, Michele's obsession with all things paranormal began at a very young age. She's worked as a Burger King drive-thru goddess, a receptionist in a law firm, a cashier, a medical/surgical assistant, an anatomy instructor in a cadaver lab, and she enjoyed every minute of it! Married for almost 20 years to her high-school sweetheart, she and her husband have owned their own business for the last 8 years. Michele's current project (other than RomCon) is about a group of people stolen from Death himself, given certain "gifts" and sent on impossible missions to save the world.  Chronicles of the Taken: Red Night is now available for just $.99 for Kindle at Amazon.com.Michele is a founder and Director here at RomCon.   
Elaine Levine:
Elaine began writing when she was in college. At the time, her son was only a year old. Her dream was to be a stay-at-home mom with a lucrative career as an author. Twenty-four years, a second child, a college degree, and two grandchildren later, she sold her first novel in a two book deal to Kensington Books. Elaine funds her writing addiction with a day job as an application developer in the Lotus Notes technology. You can learn more about her by visiting her website at www.elainelevine.com.
Elaine is a founder and Director here at RomCon.

What IS a RomCon?-
RomCon® is a FAN convention dedicated 100% to romance and women's fiction.  3 Days. You, Your Friends, and over 70 of your  Favorite Authors chatting like best friends at the coffee shop. What do we do?  We have fun!  We laugh.  We play games and get free stuff.  We line dance, ride mechanical bulls, pose with hunky cover models, tell ghost stories, ask our favorite authors to reveal all their secrets, solve murder mysteries, and giggle like we're 14 again.  We talk BOOKS...hot heroes (and why we love them), which characters we'd like to strangle ourselves, and any other random thing that comes to mind.  We beg our favorite authors for sneak peek intel on whose book is coming next…and sometimes we get it! 
You won’t find a single “workshop” here.  We don’t talk about how to write, sell, or market books.  What you’ll find is Pure Reader BLISS...

About the Author:

Delilah Marvelle spent her youth studying various languages, reading voraciously, and playing the pianoforte. She confesses that here ends the extent of her gentle breeding. She was a naughty child who was forever torturing her parents with countless adventures that they did not deem respectable. Confined to her room on many occasions due to these misadventures, she discovered the quill and its amazing power. Soon, to the dismay of her parents, she rather enjoyed being confined to her room and finished writing her first historical romance (which was a heart stopping 800 pages long...) at the age of 14. You can visit her at her website at www.DelilahMarvelle.com or her blog that explores the naughtier side of history at www.DelilahMarvelle.blogspot.com
