Ken Schrader http://www.ken-schrader.com I am a science fiction and fantasy writer, a shameless Geek, a fan of the Oxford comma, and I make housing decisions based upon the space available for bookshelves. I collect books (big surprise), movies, and music that runs through me like lightning. I don’t know much about art, but I know what I like. I sing out loud when I think there’s no one around, and I try to get a blog post up once a week – both with varying degrees of success. I love music of all kinds, books, the big sky off my front porch, Star Wars, Firefly, Blind Guardian (to which, I write almost exclusively), star gazing, jasmine tea, and the smell of rain on the air. My favorite flavor of ice cream is chocolate, my favorite food is a grilled steak, and I can suspend disbelief embarrassingly quickly. I live in Michigan, am co-owned by several dogs (especially the Border Collie), and is one of the rare breed of folk that enjoys mowing the lawn. No

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
