Multiverse Expo Sunday September 18th

Byrd's Books will be in on the celebration across the street at the Bethel Public Library when the Multiverse Expo bursts forth! We will host author signings on September with Rekka Jay (R. J. Theodore), Elizabeth Chatsworth and Kristin Ward singing their books and available to discuss how they wrote them with you!

About the authors:

R J Theodore (she/they) is an author, graphic designer, and all-around collector of creative endeavors and hobbies. She enjoys writing about magic-infused technologies, first contact events, and bioluminescing landscapes.

Her love of SFF storytelling developed through grabbing for anything-and-everything “unicorn” as a child, but she was subverted by tales of distant solar systems when her brother introduced her to Star Trek: The Next Generation at age seven. A few years later, Sailor Moon taught her stories can have both.

Her short fiction has appeared in MetaStellar and Fireside Magazines as well as the Glitter + Ashes and Unfettered Hexes anthologies from Neon Hemlock Press.

She lives in New England, haunted by her childhood cat. Find more information at rjtheodore.com.

Elizabeth Chatsworth: A native of Sheffield in Yorkshire, England, I now live in the US where I work as a voice actor. I write science fiction and fantasy that celebrates rogues, rebels, and renegades across time and space. From Victorian sensibilities to interstellar travel, I'll send you on a cosmic adventure filled with quirky characters and a touch of humor!

My debut novel, The Brass Queen (2021) has won numerous awards including the IBPA Benjamin Franklin Award™ Gold for Science Fiction & Fantasy. I'm also a Writers Of The Future contest winner for my short story, "The Widow's Might." 

Kristin Ward is an award-winning young adult author living in Connecticut. A science and math teacher for over twenty years, she infuses her geeky passions into stories that meld realism and fantasy. Kristin embraces her inner nerd regularly, often quoting 80s movies while expecting those around her to chime in with appropriate rejoinders. As a nature freak, she can be found wandering the woods or chilling in her yard with all manner of furry and feathered friends.

She is often referred to as a unicorn by colleagues who remain in awe of her ability to create or find various and sundry things in mere moments. In reality, the horn was removed years ago, leaving only a mild imprint that can be seen if she tilts her head just right. A lifelong lover of books and writing, she dreamed of becoming an author for thirty years before publishing her award-winning debut in 2018. Her first novel, After the Green Withered, is one of many things you should probably read.
