jdJD Mader is an award-winning writer and musician. Author of the critically acclaimed novels Joe Café and The Biker (a Matt Stark Novel), a gazillion short stories (some gathered into the collection Please, no eyes.) and some very angry letters, Mader also writes music and likes to fish. Check out his weekly advice column called Don’t Ask JD. His blog is updated more than his wardrobe, and he lives within casting distance of a tackle shop. Look for the second in the ‘Matt Stark’ series, Hannigan’s Fight, coming soon…





seasonsyellow16!This collection of four inter-woven stories explores the quest for redemption in a world made chaotic by emotional disorder. Broken characters brace themselves against their elemental constructs – only to find that nothing is promised and that nothing comes without a price. Four seasons. Four stories written by four critically-acclaimed authors. Are the seasons reminders of our growth or a glimpse at our slow decay? The answer is not as simple as it seems.
