blob_3.jpegBorn in the San Francisco Bay Area of California, Ariana became the family gypsy, travelling the United States, meeting new people and finding new places. As a reporter for the Suburban Journals newspapers in Illinois, Ariana had ample opportunity to meet interesting characters, and some of these (suitably disguised) turn up in her books. 

She was a member of the Australian Society of Authors, Australian Writers Association, EPIC, a former Senior Editor and Director of Services for Romance Writers of America/Australian Chapter and a Contributing Editor to Suite 101 with articles she wrote about other authors. Her articles have been published in Inscriptions Magazine, Suite 101, Disceptatio--an e-magazine, Bamboo Grove and the Romance Writers of American/Australia Newsletter. She has been a Managing Editor for Sharpwriter and Senior Editor for Clocktower Books. 

Her writing interest was in the murder mystery genre, producing three novels which are coming out from Writers Exchange, and she also collaborated in a trilogy on the paranormal mysteries of Australia with her husband Max (Glass Trilogy, also from Writers Exchange). Other books by Ariana Overton include a children's book, A Gift for Roo and a foray into sci-fi erotica, Portal under a pseudonym. She was also a prolific and talented book cover artist with more than 200 covers to her credit.

 In 1998 she went adventuring to Australia, where she met her husband Max Overton. She explored the country for two years, making many new friends and experiencing all that Australia had to offer, including a stint on a morning radio talkback show in Townsville. Returning to the United States in 2000, she continued to write alongside her husband until her unexpected death in 2003.

Writers Exchange is a Christian publishing house, although we do publish many, many other genres and not all our authors are Christian:)

We have been publishing and selling books since 2000, but in 2017 we decided to sell MOST of our books exclusively from Amazon. A number of our books are also available from other retailers. We have made it very easy for you to find our books from whichever retailer you prefer, either in the "buy" links on each book page, but also by the Menu Item "Our Books by Retailer" which will show you our books at Amazon, Apple, Barnes and Noble and Kobo.

So what is here, that is not available at Amazon and other distributors?
* "Universe" pages that go into a lot more detail about the various fictional universes some of our authors have created,
* Free Short Stories by our authors (which will also be on our blog)
* upcoming: author interviews - which will also be on our blog (where you can get new content/releases emailed directly to you!)
* and other fun things as we think of them :)

We hope you enjoy!
