    Jeanne Ryan lives in the Pacific Northwest with her family. She is author of the thriller Nerve, which is being adapted into an upcoming Lionsgate feature film, and Charisma.She dreams of the day scientists develop a DNA alteration for flying. In the meantime, writing provides her wings.

    David Bell worked a series of odd jobs—waiter, bartender, book store clerk, telemarketer—in a series of odd places—Shreveport, Louisiana; Savannah, Georgia; Washington D.C. After six years of that, he decided he had had enough of the real world and went to graduate school for creative writing. During graduate school, David wrote a few novels, which still survive on his hard drive but have not been published, and sold some short stories to journals large and small—Western Humanities Review, Backwards City Review, The Edge: Tales of Suspense. Some of these journals still exist even after publishing David’s work.
