Crashlanding by Moira Gillen

After 5+ years of being a librarian in a small town in Western Maryland, Moira quit to pursue her dream of writing full-time. In addition to being a wife and mother, and writing shorter pieces (mostly dark fiction, horror, and speculative fiction), Moira is also hard at work on revising her first novel-length manuscript, a full-length women's historical speculative fiction ghost story entitled "Edgewood".


You can find out more about her and her writing at moiragillen.com, and there are links to some of her stories currently for sale in anthologies at moiragillen.com/page/links. Additionally, the site has several short "in-progress" or rough-draft stories for casual readers and links to follow her on Twitter @moiragillen for updates on new publications.

Read and expanded version of Planetary Politics and Pizza

Jennifer Flath lives in the rainy Pacific Northwest with her family and her cats. The land of rain and mountains and moss and rivers and oceans is constant fodder for her writing. Her first love is a young adult fantasy series called The Black Pearl. She’s self-published the first two books in the series so far (along with their companion short stories) and is working on a third. As a writer, she loves to take serious things lightly and light things seriously. In her past life, she was an elementary school teacher, so she has a particular fondness for the antics of young people.
