DeJay
I'm 56 years of age. I'm retired after working in Corporate America at various management positions and levels for the past thirty one years. I've loved and been married to the same woman for twenty nine years. She and I share a log cabin on five acres in the backwoods of Pennsylvania. We have two labs, Maggi and Molly who rule our roost. My wife and I travel six months of the year in an RV throughout the US. I'm thrilled at this first sale, it will always be special to me.

Doreen Perrine
Doreen Perrine has been published in numerous anthologies and literary e-zines including The Copperfield Review, GayFlashFiction, Harrington Lesbian Literary Quarterly, The Queer Collection, Sapphic Voices, Queer and Catholic, Raving Dove, Sinister Wisdom, and Lesbian Connection. Her novella, Phendar of the Avila, a lesbian fantasy has recently been released in on Freya's Bower. Doreen's plays have been performed at Here Arts Center, WOW, Under St. Marks Theatres, and Manhattan Theatre Source in New York City. A member of the Golden Crown Literary Society, she coordinates a writer's opportunity where she resides in Catskill, New York. Doreen's website address is http://doreenperrine.tripod.com/

Fran Walker
Fran Walker has held the usual odd assortment of jobs: office receptionist, fast food restaurant worker, horse-drawn carriage driver, show groom, and lab technician. She lives in New Zealand with her wife, cats, and various farm animals who are, respectively, wonderful, spoilt, and entertaining. Her short fiction is due to appear in the anthologies Read These Lips (volume 2) and Chilling Tales (P. D. Publishing, editor Patty Henderson). When she's not writing or slogging at the day job, she can be found pottering around the garden, baking and cooking (well), or quilting (badly). She can be contacted at franwalker@ihug.co.nz

Andi Marquette
Andi Marquette was born in New Mexico, grew up in Colorado, then ended up back in New Mexico where she completed a Ph.D. in history after two other degrees in anthropology. Around 1993, she became a professional editor and has been obsessed with words ever since, which may or may not be a good thing. She wandered east and spent three years on the other side of the Mississippi, but couldn't shake the West off her boots or out of her soul, so she returned to her homelands and is currently based in Colorado where she edits, writes, and spends lots of time running around in the surrounding mountains.

Jess Sandoval
Jess lives in Portland, Oregon with her partner, two cats and a dog. When she's not slaving over her laptop writing and re-writing, she's managing a frame shop, reading, experimenting with southwestern recipes, and figuring out what it is about the rain that calls to her.

Darby O'Neil
As for a bio, let's see: Darby currently lives in the Pacific Northwest with her partner and 3 cats. Although she has been writing sporadically for many years, both fiction and poetry, this is her first officially, for real, actually published piece. She also works as a photographer and social worker. Her favorite hobbies include hiking, waterfall hunting, and playing ice hockey.

Mary Douglas
Mary resides in the Pacific Northwest with her partner. She is an assistant photographer, full time student, social worker, fencer, forester, avid hiker, hockey player, and co-mom to three cats. This is her first real publication. You can reach her at sassydendron@yahoo.com
