Jennifer Lyn Parsons
A pixel-slinger and code monkey by trade, Jennifer Lyn Parsons is a life-long lover of story with a capital S. Her work has been seen in 365 Tomorrows, Dark Valentine Magazine, and Eternal Haunted Summer, among others. She published her first novel in 2012. When not writing either code or fiction, she runs Luna Station Press, reads books as part of the Geek Girls Book Club, devours comic books because she’s loved Batman her entire life, and sometimes makes things out of wool.

Andi Marquette was born in New Mexico and grew up in Colorado. She completed a couple of academic degrees in anthropology and returned to New Mexico, where she decided a doctorate in history was somehow a good idea. She completed it before realizing that maybe she should have joined the circus, or at least a traveling Gypsy troupe. Oh, well. She fell into editing sometime around 1993 and has been obsessed with words ever since, which may or may not be a good thing. She currently resides in an undisclosed western location, where she edits, writes science fiction, mysteries, and romance, and cultivates a strange obsession with New Mexico chile.
Megan has two writing degrees that do not pay the bills. She got her BFA from Hartwick College in 2008. After graduation Megan had a soul crushing career in the fast paced and flashy world of corporate pharmaceutical insurance validation. She obtained her MA from Wilkes University in 2010, and thankfully gave up her career as a vitamin D deficient cubicle monkey. Megan is working on a dystopian series, and is the author of The Magical Time Keeper serial currently published with Jukepop Serials. She also does manuscript review for friends and spends too much time looking at cat pictures on the internet.
Danielle Perry was just a girl when she discovered writing, and has never looked back. Her first stories were Star Trek-inspired; now she writes primarily about mythology, love, and robots. (Sometimes all three at once.) She received her BA in English Literature and Religious Studies at Guilford College, in Greensboro, NC. Recently, she undertook an epic West Coast trip and settled in Portland, OR. She tweets a lot and has a website she doesn’t update enough.
I am a writer, an editor, a radical, and the product of more than one country. I work with people and land, which is a good basis for being a writer: you see both the tiny, human stories, and the great ones that change the landscape. Speculative fiction for me is the way to see both of these at once.

I write things down because I am compelled to. I respect those who can truly articulate, in as many words as it takes, the things they see in their minds. Reaching into the unfathomable is a brave and daunting task. Experimentation, whether through words and punctuation, photography or music, keeps me in step with myself and at the same time outside of myself. Too much self is never a good thing.
Elizabeth is a short story author and TV writer living in Los Angeles. An aspiring writer since the age of 2, she cycled through mystery fiction and feature screenplays before settling comfortably into the world of SF/fantasy and young adult fiction both as a reader and writer. She has worked as a script reader and proofreader in Hollywood for the past eight years and belongs to several writing groups and workshops.
Discovery is my reason for writing. When I’m writing, I fall into that right-brain, beyond-self, language-root place, where even familiar words are openings. I’ve retired from university teaching (composition, technical writing, grammar, science fiction and fantasy, creative writing) but I’m still teaching myself with every story, poem, and paragraph. It helps that my new home office is a comfy chair by a big bay window overlooking meadows and mountains. I’m kept aloft by my three young grandchildren and grounded by my good man beside me in the porch swing on summer evenings, by distant lightning and lightning bugs.
