About the Authors

Good Day's Work (Cover Photo): An artist by trade, traveler by luck. Hernando likes to explore both the mundane and the normal to find the beauty and joy in the things often overlooked or seldom seen. In his travels, Hernando likes to find landscapes and views that express life in its natural form amidst society's changing pace.

Whatever You Say: Rebecca Lanning's stories, essays, and poems have appeared in Salon, The Washington Post, The New York Times (Lives They Loved), Brain Child Magazine, The Sunday Reader, Teen Magazine, South of the Garden, Haven, Literary Mama, Role Reboot, and elsewhere.

The Man Upstairs: Hailey Piper was born obsessed with monsters, ghosts, and all things that go bump in the night. She now writes horror stories to feed that obsession. Her previous work has appeared in Trickster’s Treats.

Roaches: Rhea Dhanbhoora is an MFA candidate at Sarah Lawrence and Fiction Editor at Lumina Journal. She recently went back to full-time study after a seven-year stint in print and digital media. Back home in Bombay, her full-time job as an editor included handling and writing for Features supplements for a daily newspaper and as a teenager, had a collection of what some people may call poetry published. Not counting a brief spell selling homemade cakes, cookies, and 3D sugar figures, she's worked for health portals, travel websites, a short film company, literary reviews, hotel chains, and India's first podcast network. She’s currently working on narratives of women based in a largely ignored Zoroastrian/ Parsi community that's fast going the way of the Dodo Bird — an attempt to carve a little place in fiction for them to sit in, through short stories that revolve around or set the characters in situations that are uncomfortable, taboo or in some other way lead to cracks and breaks for them, for society and for minority communities like them the world over.
