D. H. Timpko http://www.dhtimpko.com D. H. Timpko is the author of “The Firma Twins and the Purple Staff of Death,” a science fiction novel for children aged 9-13 in which identical twins learn they have fantastical powers far beyond anything they could have imagined. She is completing the second Firma twins novel, “The Firma Twins and the Flute of Enchantment.” A retired journalist and technical writer, Timpko is a member of SCBWI, the Writers-Editors Network, Broad Universe, and the Yellow Brick Road, an online critique group for children’s writers. She has won awards for several children’s and adult short stories. Her family newsletter, “Chez Timpko News,” won the APEX award for publication excellence in 2013-2016. She looks forward to a future when time travel resolves the dilemma of not having enough time to do what she loves most—writing, reading, watching films, traveling, and spending time with her family, friends, wonderful husband, and intellectually challenged pets. She has no regrets about not having time to clean house. Yes
Tracy Townsend http://www.tracytownsend.net Tracy Townsend holds a Master’s degree in Writing & Rhetoric from DePaul University and a Bachelor’s degree in creative writing from DePauw University, a source of regular consternation when proofreading her credentials. She is chair of the English Department at the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy, an elite public boarding school, where she teaches creative writing and science fiction & fantasy literature. She has been a martial arts instructor, a stage combat and accent coach, and a short-order cook for houses full of tired gamers. Now she lives in Bolingbrook, Illinois with two bumptious hounds, two remarkable children, and one very patient husband. Her short story, “Late Arrivals,” was published by Luna Station Quarterly in March 2016. Yes
Chrysoula Tzavelas http://www.dreamfarmer.net/ Chrysoula Tzavelas went to twelve schools in twelve years while growing up as an Air Force brat, and she never met a library she didn't like. She now lives near Seattle with cats, dogs, adults and children. They graciously allow her a few hours to write everyday and one day she'll have time to do other things again, too. She likes combed wool, bread dough, and gardens, but she also likes technology, games and space. This probably goes hand in hand with liking Jane Austen, Terry Pratchett and Iain Banks. Yes

Leona R Wisoker http://www.leonawisoker.com Leona R. Wisoker started out as a writer when she was eight. Her parents made the deadly mistake of praising her work, and friends and family alike have had to wade through piles of her writing ever since. This is, thankfully, not as tedious a task as it used to be (or so she is assured). Her science-fantasy series, Children of the Desert, was initially published though Mercury Retrograde Press; in January of 2014, MRx ceased operations as a traditional publisher. Fortunately, the series was picked up in late 2014 by ReAnimus Press and is once more widely available. Leona writes, reviews, and edits at whim. Her short fiction has been published by Anotherealm, Alienskin, Galactic Creatures (anthology), Sha’Daa: Pawns and S'D: Inked (anthologies), The Society For The Preservation of CJ Henderson (anthology), Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine, Futures: Fire to Fly Magazine, and more. She currently has one novella (Fallen City) and one short story (A Small Price To Pay) out through The Scribbling Lion. She is listed on Goodreads, Twitter, and Shelfari; at the moment, she is most often, though erratically, on Twitter, and hopes to clear her desk enough to rejoin the civilized world before 2017. Social media in general is updated in the rare moments between the completion of one overdue project and the beginning of the next. Leona lives in Williamsburg, Virginia, with an extraordinarily patient husband and a terribly spoiled lab-beagle-shepherd mix. Yes
