Lauren Jankowski has been an avid reader for most of her life. She holds a B.A. in Women and Gender Studies from Beloit College. She has been writing fiction since high school, when she noticed a lack of strong women in the popular genre books. Also known for her activism for asexual visibility, she has taught a course on writing asexual characters for the “Writing the Other” series. She founded Asexual Artists, is a member of Pack of Aces, and is an outspoken feminist. When she’s not writing or researching, she enjoys reading (particularly anything relating to ancient myths) or playing with her pets.
Tracy Korn is a sci-fi / urban fantasy author and all around science geek who may or may not have a "Lip Smackers" chapstick addiction. When she’s not inventing worlds (and subsequently saving them or wrecking them), she reads about other people doing it, practices her newbie cinematographer skills, and dreams of someday meeting James Cameron. 2019 plans include the launch of her new urban fantasy series, First Bloods.
