Christopher Weuve is a professional naval analyst and wargame designer. He spent six years at the Center for Naval Analyses (the Combat Information Center of a Burke-class destroyer would make an excellent starship bridge), and then five years on the faculty of the US Naval War College. Outside the day job, he's a founding member of BuNine (David Weber's Honorverse analytic visualization team) and was an editor for “House of Steel: The Honorverse Companion,” in which he also co-authored (with David Weber) the “Building a Navy in the Honorverse” chapter.

H.P. Holo

H.P. Holo grew up in a family where it was dangerous to profess boredom. She’s also an incorrigible smart aleck. So when her parents told her to read a dictionary, she did. And then she began writing novels they needed that dictionary to understand.

Her first published ode to smart aleckery was YA fantasy The Wizard’s Way (with Jacob Holo), which readers have called everything from “quirky and fun” to “a veritable love letter to steampunk fans” to “2 stars. A book.”

J.A. Sutherland

As of 10/2/2018, J.A. Sutherland will not be able to attend SphinxCon for personal reasons.  We wish him the best and hope to see him in the future!

J.A. Sutherland spends his time sailing the Bahamas on a 43' 1925 John G. Alden sailboat called Little Bit ...

Yeah ... no. In his dreams. 

Reality is a townhouse in Orlando with a 90 pound husky-wolf mix who won't let him take naps.

When not reading or writing, he spends his time on roadtrips around the Southeast US searching for good barbecue.

Jacob Holo

Jacob Holo has been a recreational geek since childhood, when he discovered Star Wars and Star Trek, and a professional geek since college, when he graduated from Youngstown State University with a degree in Electrical and Controls Engineering. He started writing when his parents bought that “new” IBM 286 desktop, and over the years, those powers combined to push him to the next level of nerddom: a sci-fi author who designs intricate worlds and tech systems...and promptly blows them up in a string of nonstop action.

Michael J. Allen

Michael J. Allen is a bestselling author of multi-layer science fiction and fantasy novels. Born in Oregon and an avid storm fan, he lives in far too hot & humid rural Georgia with his two black Labradors: Myth and Magesty. Warped from youth by the likes of Jerry Lewis, Robin Williams, Gene Wilder and Danny Kay, his sense of humor leads to (in order) occasional surrender, communicable insanity, a sweet tooth and periodic launch into nonsensical song.

Wendy Woods

To say that Wendy Woods has a fascination with felines, and corsets, would be an understatement.  Whether she becomes a Sirra’Kan princess, a Soulguard in corset and swords, or is simply wrangling her author husband to and from panels, there is always a purr available for anyone in good graces, and claws for those that misbehave.  She works full-time in the medical field, fighting with insurance companies, for her patient’s benefit every day, which greatly relieves her family, because she gets any arguing out before she gets home.
