Ambage Hosts

Andrew Page (Ambage Host & Founder) is an aspiring author and avid reader, having a love for literature from a young age, in part due to his homeschooling background until High School.

More of his writing, as well as various other bookish ramblings, essays, and more can be found in his blog:

Caleb Peiffer (Ambage Host & Founder) was raised a homeschooler, spending part of his childhood in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. With his ardent love of reading came a dream to write, and inspired by authors such as Agatha Christie, Sinclair Lewis, and F. Scott Fitzgerald, he’s been doing just that.

Peiffer always has a yarn to spin, and visitors are always welcome in his blog at

John Matz (Ambage Host & Resident Artist) finds it rather awkward to write about himself in the third person, but when asked nicely may be convinced to do so. This guy is a dabbler in many fields, but his heart belongs to comics. Unfortunately he does not have the ability nor the drive to actually make a comic. He writes, draws, builds with Lego, and imagines what it’s like to make comics.

Nate Deisinger (Ambage Host) is, apparently, a writer. When he isn’t picking letters out of the Scrabble bag and transferring the results to a Word document, he’s usually busy with university, work, or trying very hard not to think about either of those last two.

Ambage Write-Off Hosts

Tyler St. Francis (Write-Off Host). Once upon the time, there was the Pretty Boy Swag. It was a vibrant cluster of life in a cold, homely universe, and one day to alleviate its stark loneliness it birthed Tyler St. Francis and his magic Keyboard, which became the Pretty Boy Incarnate and the Pretty Boy Bible. And the world was both a little comelier, and a little more eloquent.

And the Swag was pleased.

Lewis in The Chronicles of Narnia, he has been writing since his early teen years. Other interests include a great love of music, and his Biology studies at Texas A&M University.

Elijah Philip Brockway (Contributor), also known as Ilyusha Brokvey, Ilya, Ilja, Wildcard, Blokfase, The Otter, and That Weird Guy In The Corner, is a profuse (though not necessarily proficient) writer, and fond of making, playing, and listening to music.

Oh, and he wrote some weird stories and stuff in the first Anthology.

Timothy L. Cerepaka (Contributor) unintentionally discovered the multiverse one day when a dimensional gateway appeared inside his microwave. Forgetting the old adage about curiosity and cats (he was not a cat, after all), Timothy stepped through that portal, where he was immediately pulled into the realm of the mysterious, the impossible, and the fantastic and has never looked back. Nowadays, Timothy writes fantasy and science-fiction stories as an indie author with dreams that are neither too big nor too small, but just right. His family and friends still don’t know that most of his stories are based on true events. They just think he has a strange imagination.
