Nell Stark grew up predominately on the east coast of the USA, attended Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, and is now pursuing a doctorate in medieval English literature at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. When she is not teaching, writing, or teaching in the university's Writing Center, she enjoys cooking, sailing, reading, and any sport that involves running around maniacally.
Trinity Tam is an award-winning writer-producer of movies and television. Her favorite job was in video games. Her least favorite, in mutual funds. Everything in between ended in dotcom. In 1996, she graduated cum laude with a BA in East Asian Studies. She giggles whenever someone says cum laude but she doesn't blush. She thinks twelve years living in Manhattan makes her a New Yorker but concedes that loathing the Yankees makes her a bad one.
