Anne Gray copy edited the final five years of Emerald City for Cheryl and has also served as a freelance proofreader for Subterranean Press since 2006. In her other life she is a cognitive systems designer and human factors engineer. In yet another life she runs science fiction conventions and manages wikis about the genre. In her fourth life she and her husband Brian are having their first child this year. Luckily, she is part cat and has plenty of lives to devote to her various interests.
Karina Meléndez hails from sunny Mexico. She has lived in Canada since 2004, long enough to know she won’t become acclimatized to the constant chill and rain. Time spent indoors hiding from the weather often leads to the internet and —in Karina’s case—to web development.
Chrissie Harper has lived up north, down south and (mostly) in the West Midlands. Her eye’s set on the south again. She once self-published a magazine about Jack Kirby for £2.50. Then Dez Skinn picked it up and gave it a budget. She worked for the BBC on one occasion but a glittering television career didn’t follow. Yet. She writes, designs, edits, draws, colours and sings badly. Lots more @ www.chezchrissie.co.uk.
