Timothy L. Rodriguez

was a journalist when newspapers counted, he is a poet when poetry doesn't count for much, and he is a novelist when the fate of fiction is uncertain. He is a practitioner of Robert Frost's line: the only certain freedom is in departure. He has traveled widely and assumed many walks of life. For the moment he lives on a barrier island in North Carolina.

Joan Leotta

She is  widely published, an award-winning journalist, short story writer, and author (novels). She performs folklore and one-woman shows on historic figures.
