Kristene Perron has been shot, stabbed, drowned, run over and thrown from a building. During her ten years as a professional stuntwoman, she learned all the interesting ways a person can get injured or die and then applied this unique education to her fiction. She is the co-author of the adventure science fiction series Warpworld, the 2010 winner of the Surrey International Writer’s Conference Storyteller Award, and a 2015 Writers of the Future finalist. Her friends wish she would stop talking about cats.
A career nomad, Josh Simpson has driven trucks through the lower forty-eight states, treated and and disposed of hazardous waste, mixed mud as a stonemasonry laborer, failed abysmally in marketing, gotten on people’s nerves as a safety man, and presently gets on their nerves even more using nerve release techniques in pain relief therapy.
He lives amidst the scrub and mesquite of West Texas, with his cat.
