Dan Gemeinhart

Dan Gemeinhart lives in a small town smack dab in the middle of Washington state with his wife and three young daughters. He was lucky and grateful to be a teacher-librarian in an elementary school for thirteen years, where he got to share awesome books with awesome kids. He loves camping, cooking and traveling. He also plays guitar (badly) and reads (constantly). His house is always a mess. He is really pretty darn happy.

Daniella Melendez

Daniella Melendez lives in an obscure pocket of Florida with her husband, her young son, and the family cat. She was first published in kindergarten with the poignant poem “I Love Chicken Nuggets”, an experience that inspired a lifetime of passion for writing. Sometime thereafter, she earned a B.A. in English/Creative Writing from USF, a black belt in taekwondo, and an AuDHD diagnosis. When she isn’t chasing the toddler, immersed in her favorite game, or buried in a book, she can be found writing stories that center ND voices. 

Brittany Evans

Brittany Evans is a Canadian who makes graphic designs by daylight and writes stories by moonlight. Growing up her parents always said she had a "wild imagination" where she could be given a stick and create an entire story with it. Now as an adult they find themselves lost in the worlds they create often inspired by nature and anime. When she isn't writing she can be found hiking or drinking too much Starbucks.
