    About the Author

    AUTHOR: Ever since I was able to read, I've had a book (or a comic book in the early days) in my hands or on my person. I grew up in a non-digital age, in a home with one telephone that everyone shared, one television that no one watched, and in which movies were a luxury. Aside from radio theatre, books were my best non-human friends. My love of reading never died. When I was 8 years old, I drew my first series of comic books. They were terrible, but I still love them. To me, they represent the moment the wise-old-man inside my little boy's head finally made me aware that I loved to create. As it turned out, I enjoyed writing much more than I enjoyed drawing, but I've spent most of my life doing some form of creative work. And when not, I've worked some boring jobs in very creative ways. To this day, I love to write and to share my creations with others. I'm the guy who will watch a good movie twenty more times, if it means I get to introduce it to someone else and participate in their joy of discovering something entertaining or valuable. I can't be quite so intimately participatory with my own writing, but I do love to know that I've brightened someone's day, made them think, feel or-at the very least-provided them with a welcome distraction for a while.

    EDITOR: I was born a bibliophile, but it wasn't until high school that I discovered my knack for editing and decided I wanted to edit fiction. I love the feel of a book in my hands, and I may or may not be one of those crazy book sniffers. In my spare time (which is in short supply), I enjoy playing board games and card games with my husband and two teen boys, perusing antique shops, and, of course, reading. What I love most about editing is cultivating relationships with authors. I feel fortunate to be able to share in their creative vision as an editorial partner. I am inspired by their dedication and I enjoy helping them achieve their goals.
