Michael Tierney – Nothing in Michael Tierney’s past could predict that he would start writing Steampunk/alternate history novels. Except that growing up near Boston, he developed an abiding interest in history. And those degrees in chemistry he earned, as well as his fascination with the history of science. Not to mention his love of Victoriana, its architecture, design, and culture. Oh, yes, and his rampant Anglophilia. Plus, he’s always enjoyed writing, even though most of his work to date had been non-fiction and technical in nature.
On second thought, maybe it was inevitable.

Dover Whitecliff – Dover Whitecliff is an analyst, an artist, an editor, and a jack-of-all-trades, but mostly a writer who has loved making up stories and drawing hedgehogs since forever.

She-Wolf in Shorts is the first volume. Dover was born in the shadow of Fujiyama, raised in the shadow of Olomana, and lives where she can see the shadow of Mt. Shasta if she squints and it’s a really clear day.
