Erin Hymas (Airdrie, Alberta) is a university student and avid tea lover.  When she's not
drowning in piles of homework or working retail, she splits her time between drawing
comic books, watching zombie movies, and snuggling with her two dogs.

Becca Schortinghuis is a recent addition to the Alberta landscape. Born and raised in the
interior of British Columbia, she then spent 10 years in Vancouver pretending it wasn’t
raining, before finally giving up and moving to Calgary. Becca is the proud owner of one
husband and two young daughters. She is still trying to figure out what she wants to be
when she grows up.
