*published under these names




Rather than pat the two-headed muskrats begging for cottage cheese near her gate, in 2008, KJ Hannah Greenberg returned her attentions to writing. Half of a dozen international newspaper columns/blogs, several hundred free-standing short works, and a Pushcart Prize nomination later, she decided to linger among the bibliophiles. This December, Unbound CONTENT will be offering a full-length collection of Hannah's poetry, A Bank Robber's Bad Luck with His Ex-Girlfriend. During March 2012, Bards and Sages Publishing will launch a compilation of seventy of Hannah's brief fictions, Don't Pet the Sweaty Things. In 2010, French Creek Press published an assortment of KJ Hannah Greenberg's essays, Oblivious to the Obvious: Wishfully Mindful Parenting.

I assemble words into brief fictions, plays, essays, and poetry. Sometimes, I write flash fiction, or haikus. Other times, I write novels, serialized short stories, or musicals. I publish across genres, across themes, and across commonplace sensibilities. I also get my kicks from geckos, from waterfalls, and from sunsets.

Three activities seem rudimentary to sound writing; reading, writing, and rewriting. I think, as well, it’s important to get tenacious about churning out work. Discipline is not sufficient to succeed, but it is necessary.

Just like I alternate among strokes, when swimming laps, I jump among techniques when fashioning prose or poetics. I want to keep all of my mental muscles toned. Plus, it feels good to wiggle at the edges.

Likes:

* lovers of slipstream fiction and oboe players who never got past the second orchestral chair
* mothers who are too busy mopping carpets, diapering doll bottoms, and chopping beans to think clearly

* left-handed rubber bands

Status:
Married to my college sweetheart, inhabiting a home full of teenage and twenty-something sons and daughters, also harboring an invisible Komodo dragon and an entire array of make-believe hedgehogs.

Anything else:
I’m not sure what I want to be when I grow up. Already in my fifth decade, I intend to wander one page at a time.

Some time ago, I was a rhetoric professor. I gave up academia for motherhood and left my maternal focus behind when my children began to tower over me. These days, I keep company with chimeras, with would-be emperors of distant star systems, and with herbalist forsworn to plants outside of the mint family.

Natasha Cabot















Name: Natasha Cabot

AKA: Nat, Tasha


Natasha Cabot is a Canadian writer based in Vancouver, BC. She has a BA in English Literature, a degree which has proven to be quite useless in most of her jobs but gives her a sense of superiority over her co-workers. She knows who various writers are and can quote them whilst making others feel stupid. Superiority is a good thing. In addition to reading and writing, she loves all kinds of sports - except soccer. She has been published in numerous literary journals including Metazen, Wilderness House Literary Review, Gone Lawn Journal, The Legendary, Microw, and Ginosko Literary Review. She is currently working on a collection of short stories she hopes to have published next year.


I like to write about the darker things in life. Tragedy can be funny if it is told correctly. I like to explore the abnormal side of normalcy. While I hope people enjoy what I write, in the end I can't write for anyone else but myself. If others like it, it is a fantastic bonus but I can't write to make others happy or to please other people - only myself.

My likes: Writing, reading, owls, sports, mockery, monkeys, and science.

My dislikes: People without imagination, close-mindedness, willful ignorance, and cruelty. And right-wing politicians.

Kayla Bashe












Name: Kayla Bashe


My first story was a fanfiction crossover between My Little Pony and Veggie Tales. I was three years old at the time.

I had no idea how the spacebar worked.

Fortunately, my knowledge of computers, typing, spelling, and grammar has vastly improved since then. I learned to read a few weeks before I learned to write, and participated in my first theatrical production shortly afterward. Since then, I've written four novellas, collected an entire wall of books, held a staged reading of a full-length steampunk play I wrote, and choreographed a solo performance piece. I recently attended the Alpha Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror Workshop for Young Writers.

Currently, I share an infuriatingly large house with my mother, my father, and an endearing Cockapoo. When I grow up, I want to keep a rescued chicken in my apartment, write strong female characters to inspire young girls, grow my own lavender, take eight dance classes in a row, couch-surf across the United States, travel the world, and always talk to strangers.

Three spiders live in my tub.


My first novel, Kitty Cadawell and the Shadowslayers of Fyrn: http://www.amazon.com/Kitty-Cadawell-Shadowslayers-Kayla-Bashe/dp/0557019168

Education: The New School of Montmouth County; currently somewhat homeschooled.


Likes: The theatre. Collecting butterfly-decorated notebooks. Modern art made from tangled yarn. Sculpture gardens and Sculpey clay. Filling the aformentioned notebooks. Savasana, also known as Corpse Pose. Fresh-baked lemon bars. Blasting Bollywood music at 5 AM. Contemporary dance and improvised ballets. Trilogies; quartets. Tango dresses. Red jazz shoes. Long jog/runs. Books by Kelly Link, Sherwood Smith, Tamora Pierce, and Francesca Lia Block. NaNoWriMo. Biographies of courtesans. Anything glittering.


Dislikes: Boredom. Cubicles. People who don't empty their penny-filled pockets to the dog-owning homeless, or who won't clap to save Tinkerbell. Going anywhere without a notebook and at least two mechanical pencils. Permanently unrequited love.


Status: Flirting with everyone else's boyfriends and drooling over fictional guys!



Anything else: Of course I freelance- what would you like me to write?

Theatrical resume available upon request.
