Dan Rice writes speculative fiction while not slaving away at the 9 to 5 or entertaining wee lads who have a penchant for a bit of the ultra-violence. You can find his thoughts on writing and his complete bibliography at his website https://www.danscifi.com/.
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.
