Jarrod D. King is the author of ‘Pangaea: Unsettled Land’. He writes fantasy with a mix of deep characterization and extravagant stories with the purpose of bringing a new voice to the world. He is now currently working on expanding the world of Pangaea with a prequel titled ‘The Auctorati’.

Annabelle Jay writes young adult LGBT novels. She loves dragons, witches, and magic, but also writes realistic fiction too. Annabelle is the author of several novels, including The Knight Perry, Caron High News, and The Sun Dragon Series.

St. Sukie de la Croix is a writer and photographer. He is most widely known for his 2012 book Chicago Whispers: A History of LGBT Chicago Before Stonewall. His works have explored the underground cultures and aspects of Chicago’s LGBT community dating back to the 1670s. He has had several columns in Chicago publications, both in print and online: Outlines (now Windy City Times), Nightspots, Chicago Now, and Chicago Free Press.

Eric Andrews-Katz was born in New York. When he was twelve, his family moved to Florida without asking. Eventually, he studied creative writing at USF before attending the Florida School of Massage. Eric moved to Seattle in 1994 and started a successful business (The Massage Guy™), and lives with his partner, Alan. Eric’s work can be found in these anthologies: So Fey: Queer Fairy Fiction, The Best Date Ever, Charmed Lives: Gay Spirit in Storytelling, Gay City: Vols 2, 3, & 4 (which he also co-edited), Zombiality: A Queer Bent on the Undead, and Best Gay Fiction 2015. Eric has been a finalist in the Saints & Sinners: New Fiction from the Festival anthologies (2014, 2015) and writes interviews/reviews for the Seattle Gay News. His novels include the Agent Buck 98 series (The Jesus Injection, Balls & Chain) and Tartarus, published by Bold Strokes Books.
