Katherine Youngblood spent her childhood traveling around the world with her mother, brothers and Air Force father, learning to treasure people from all cultures. Settling in Pensacola, FL, she has finally put down roots, raising her three children along the lovely Gulf of Mexico. Katherine is passionate about literature, animals, nature, and people. Her desire is to connect with those who have lost their way in the world. She hopes her writings express hope and forgiveness.

Her favorite quote:

“Everything matters. Because you are important, everything you do is important. Every time you forgive, the universe changes; every time you reach out and touch a heart or a life, the world changes; with every kindness and service, seen or unseen, my (God’s) purposes are accomplished and nothing will ever be the same again.” THE SHACK by William P. Young

Her favorite authors are C.S. Lewis, Thomas Merton, Agatha Christie, E.L. Doctorow, Toni Morrison, and others.

J.E. Muzzio, a Tampa native, lives a solitary life in the shadow of The Big Guava. Jacob’s Ladder was her first work of fiction. It was inspired by her children and brought to life by her father, her hero, who always told her she could do anything – even dance on the stars; and her mother who taught her that if you want to dance, you have to pay the fiddler.

Mitch Wisniewski is a senior Creative Writing major at the University of West Florida. He has always enjoyed writing and is currently working on a coming of age novel, as well as a series of short stories posted weekly on mitchwisniewski.substack.com.

He spends far too much time on his laptop and far too much money at thrift stores. A perfect balance in his opinion. He can be found on Twitter and Instagram @mitchwis.
