Gerri Leen Muses

Gerri Leen likes to think of herself as an author/poet, but really she’s a certified cat
servant. She’s allowed to live with Simon (a white Turkish Angora, also known as The Demolator because he is the most destructive cat ever and as The Vominator because, well, you can guess) and with his sister River who’s a torbie (tabby/tortoiseshell mix–talk about your combos!) shorthair who lives up to her Firefly namesake in so many creepifying ways. She’s also very sweet). Gerri writes fiction and poetry in many genres and also romance as Kim Strattford.

Despite the urging of her feline overlords, she has not dedicated herself solely to fiction that features cats in all their glory. There will be repercussions unless cheese delivery is imminent.

Marguerite Kenner

Marguerite is a native Californian who has forsaken sunny paradise to live with her true love in Merrye Olde England. She frequently wears so many hats that she needs two heads. When she’s not grappling with legal conundrums as a commercial solicitor, editing Cast of Wonders, or helping behind the scenes as COO of Escape Artists, she can be found narrating audio fiction, studying popular culture (i.e. going to movies and playing video games) with her partner Alasdair Stuart, or curling up with a really good book. You can follow her adventures on Twitter.
