About the Author
Speed City Indiana Sisters in Crime—an organization of Indiana mystery writers whose members have contributed to a collection of anthologies.
Diana Catt moved around the Midwest for college, post-graduate studies, jobs – then ended up in rural Indiana. She raised three kids to perfection, trained pets of every ilk, and never had weeds in her flower beds. Life has been good – so she creates mysteries and weird stories to add a welcome level of disorder and suspense. Diana has had 14 short story publications.
Marianne Halbert’s stories have appeared in numerous anthologies and magazines on the cutting edge of speculative fiction. She grew up in the heartland devouring mysteries and horror, and loves to read and write anything quirky, spooky, downright creepy, surprising or moving. While she abhors gore for gore’s sake, she thrills on creating tension, and edge-of-your-seat suspense, and shades-of-gray characters that make you think of them years after the pages have closed.
