Brian D. Beckstead will be presenting The Stallion Warriors, a thriller set in Salt Lake City, just prior to the 2012 presidential election. Beckstead is a former Mormon who lives in Murray, Utah. “I found myself pinned between the gay community and the Mormon Church for having the audacity to write such a story.” He is a business consultant and developer, and is writing several more books, including the sequel.
Colleen Helme will be presenting two of her books, Flame of Destiny and Carrots. Colleen has always been fascinated with the idea of magic and as a child pretended she was a princess who could make things happen with just a wave of her wand. She lives in Utah with her family.
Bryan Young will be presenting two of his books, Lost at the Con and Man Against the Future. Young works across many different mediums.
