Meet the Author

Kate Kaynak was born and raised in New Jersey, but she managed to escape. Her Yale degree says she was a psych major, but she had WAY too much fun to have paid attention in class. She and her husband live in New Hampshire with their three kids, where Kaynak enjoys reading, writing, and fighting crime with her amazing superpowers.

Trisha J. Wooldridge reviews dining establishments in Faerie for her local paper, much to the natives' confusion. She often gets injured while trying to ride her horse, save the planet, interview famous movie and music people, or wear heels. She swears she loves her Husband-of-Awesome for more than his health insurance (he's also pretty cute). Her work has been in two EPIC Award-winning anthologies Bad-Ass Faeries and UnCONventional. Her debut novel, The Kelpie, comes out in December 2013.

    Fun read!

    This is a fun anthology--you can read a story or two in a sitting. And if you're a con-goer, you'll get a lot of the in-jokes, too.
