Kelly J. Ford is the author of Real Bad Things, coming summer 2022 from Thomas & Mercer, and Cottonmouths, named one of 2017’s best books of the year by the Los Angeles Review and featured in the “52 Books in 52 Weeks” from the Los Angeles Times. Her work has appeared in Post Road Magazine, Black Heart Magazine, Fried Chicken and Coffee, and Knee-Jerk Magazine. She is an instructor for GrubStreet Writing Center and an IT project manager. Kelly is Arkansas bred and Vermont based.

P. J. Vernon was born in South Carolina. Called a "rising star thriller writer" by Library Journal, Vernon's debut, When You Find Me, was both an Audible Plus #1 Listen and an Associated Press Top Ten U.S. Audiobook. His latest novel, Bath Haus, pitched as "Gone Girl with gays and Grindr" and has been praised as “a nightmarish white-knuckler” by O, The Oprah Magazine and called "[an] adrenaline-spiked pulse-pounder" by The New York Times. He lives in Calgary with his husband and two wily dogs.

S.A. Cosby is the multi-award winning author of BLACKTOP WASTELAND and RAZORBLADE TEARS.  He is the recipient of the Anthony, The Barry, The Macavity, The ITW award and The LA Times Book award.  His latest novel RAZORBLADE TEARS was a NYT best seller. When not writing, he is a whisky snob, a connoisseur of moonshine, and an avid but slow hiker. He lives in Gloucester, Virginia, with his cats and a squirrel named Solomon.

Heather Levy is a born and bred Oklahoman and graduate of Oklahoma City University's Red Earth MFA program for creative writing. Her work has appeared in numerous journals, including CrimeReads and NAILED Magazine. The New York Times called her debut WALKING THROUGH NEEDLES “a spellbinding novel at the nexus of power, desire and abuse that portends a bright future” and the Los Angeles Times called it “a standout for its frank but sensitive exploration of trauma and desire.” She lives in Oklahoma with her husband, two kids, and three murderous cats.
