The theme for March is resilience.
Carolyn Wood, born and raised in Portland, Oregon, still lives in her family home. She is a retired English teacher who spent more than thirty-five years encouraging students to write and is now taking her own advice, although often she’d rather be practicing yoga, or outdoors tending her bees and garden or hiking backroads and mountain trails. Ms. Wood’s work has appeared in Teachers as Writers and Elohi Gadugi Journal. Tough Girl – An Olympian’s Journey is her first book.
C.M. Spivey is a speculative fiction writer, author of the high fantasy Trident Chronicles series, and the gothic mystery The Longing and the Lack. His enduring love of fantasy started young. Now, he explores the rules and ramifications of magic in his own works—and as a panromantic asexual trans man, he’s committed to queering his favorite genres.
