Sam Landstrom

Sam is the owner of Delight Games and the author of several Delight Games titles including the six Wizard's Choice volumes, Zombie High volumes 3-10, and co-written various other Delight Games titles.

In addition, Sam manages the production of all Delight Games titles including writing, software development, editing, testing, and everything else that's required to ship.  When you contact Delight Games, you're usually talking to him.

Sam believes that interactive fiction has the potential to revolutionize reading around the world by bringing great storytelling and interesting scenarios right to the reader on their smartphone or tablet. Millions of Delight Games have been downloaded and the ratings and feedback have convinced him that these simple, but fun interactive novels can help make reading addictive and thinking fun.

Sam  began writing fiction on the bus to and from work. His first novel MetaGame, sold tens of thousands of copies and made it to #2 on Amazon Kindle's best seller list. This experience instilled in Sam the wish to create more fiction and deliver it into the hands of the masses. 

Quick Bio: I like writing (of course), coding, listening to audio books while doing errands (e.g. walking the dogs), snowboarding, mountain biking, and hanging out with my wife and two kids in the Seattle area. 


Michelle Kudelka

Michelle often gets herself into things that she shouldn't, like writing a historical fiction novel that requires more research than actually writing. Apart from her original work Oregon Trail, she is also behind the twisted fairy tale and Frost conversions.

Erin Foster Hartley

Robert Kroese

Robert Kroese’s sense of irony was honed growing up in Grand Rapids, Michigan – home of the Amway corporation and the Gerald R. Ford Museum, and the first city in the United States to fluoridate its water supply. In second grade, he wrote his first novel, the saga of Captain Bill and his spaceship Thee Eagle. This turned out to be the high point of his academic career. After barely graduating from Calvin College in 1992 with a philosophy degree, he was fired from a variety of jobs before moving to California, where he stumbled into software development. As this job required neither punctuality nor a sense of direction, he excelled at it. In 2009, he called upon his extensive knowledge of useless information and love of explosions to write his first novel, Mercury Falls. Since then, he has written two sequels, Mercury Rises (2011) and Mercury Rests (2012), and a humorous epic fantasy, Disenchanted.

For Delight Games, Robert has written Superhero's Choice and Deep Space Huntress.

William Miller

Maria Prince

Maria Prince is a game writer, translator, and aspiring horror novelist from Georgia, US. In high school, she wrote a pretty bad fantasy novel (with a sequel and everything!), but at least it was good practice. She moved to Sweden in 2007 after marrying a Swede.

Maria started work at Junebud AB a few years later as a scripting intern (more technical than it sounds), and then as game writer. After the company went under, she began a freelance career in writing and translation. Her hobbies include gaming, comics, and the odd programming project.

For Delight Games, Maria wrote the Witch Saga series.
