Nicola lives in the wilds of (almost) Eastern Europe with her long-suffering husband, phenomenal children and a grumpy cat. Trained as an actress and singer, she has worked in entertainment for over 20 years and currently splits her time between writing speculative fiction, helping her husband run their voice-over company, Offstimme, and voicing everything from commercials and documentaries to public transport announcements.
Gary Dowell is a Dallas-based writer and former journalist who writes catalog copy for Heritage Auctions by day, and fights crime as a freelance film critic by night. In between, he works as a consultant for the USA Film Festival and Dallas International Film Festival. His inane ramblings can be read at MovieInk.net, PopCitizen.com, and DarkHorizons.com. He has fond memories of sleep.
