Could there be two more beautiful things than writing and cake? Maybe writing about cake, or writing on a cake, or eating a cake while writing… but that’s about it. This is a general writing blog by a few assorted dabblers in the writing field.

Scott – Years ago, I left the Midwest for the deserts of Arizona. Since then, I have worked in the grocery business and as a high school English teacher. Literature and writing are my passions, and I try to share my love of the written word with my students each day.

Jeff MoriartyJeff’s day job(s) are a Social Media consultant, founder of Ignite Phoenix, and mischief maker with ImprovAZ.  By night (and really any spare time) he is working on several screenplays and a novel, trying to determine which medium suits him best. Jeff was a founding member of the Jester’Z Improv Comedy Troupe in Arizona, and written sketches for two tours of the Dry Heat sketch comedy revue. He is currently enrolled in a Film & Television program, focusing on screenwriting.

grindhouse – Computer programmer in professional life.  Sporadic writer (usually in the form of screenplays) when the mood or inspiration hits.  A stint in improvisational performance and sketch comedy writing helped to develop a sense of timing and an ear for dialogue.

M. Jaynes – M. Jaynes is a thirty-something, burned-out high school teacher with anti-social tendencies.  Constantly looking for ways to establish balance in her life, she looks to blogging as a way to purge her soul and escape reality. Married fourteen years to “one hell of a writer,” she continues to study those authors she holds in high regard as a means of improving and exploring her own style.

Eric Bahle – I grew up in rural Pennsylvania and now live in the desert. I have been fascinated, and sometimes obsessed, with storytelling through books and movies since I was a small child. It’s only now, in my thirties, that I’ve engaged in the madness of trying my hand at the craft. Now I’m hooked. Prose fiction is what I focus on although I haven’t given up on figuring out those damned screenplays.

Barbara McAllister enjoys the art of writing and discovered it as a therapeutic outlet many years ago after being notified of a company downsizing effort.  The battle to find time to write is a constant but it doesn’t stop her from trying. She enjoys the creative outlet that writing provides and is working on a couple of projects.  In her day job, she’s a Foundation Program Officer working to increase the pipeline of engineering students globally.
