Amanda Helms is an SFF writer living in her home state of Colorado. Favorite things include the perfect cup of tea, walking her dog on sunny days, and fuzzy socks on cold ones.

Katherine Inskip teaches astrophysics for a living and spends her (infrequent) spare time populating the universe with worlds of her own. She is a mother to two boys, and enjoys chaos, water-fights, tree-climbing, and thwarting plans for world domination. Katherine is addicted to chocolate and Japanese logic puzzles, narrates for a variety of podcasts, and wishes she’d started slush reading decades ago. You can read her blog, Trisigmatic, or follow her on Twitter.
Fonda Lee is the author of the award-winning young adult science fiction novels Zeroboxer and Exo. When she’s not writing she can be found training in martial arts or searching out tasty food in Portland, Oregon. You can learn more about her work on her website, or follow her on Twitter.
