Kit Moss’ passion in life is the fostering of GLBTQ historical novels and stories in order to replace all the historical data ignored or eliminated by historians even in times when same sex love and nonbinary gender identity were common.  As he, who is transgender, likes to say, “We were here and we were queer.”  His own books and stories cover the periods of the Anglo Saxons, the Crusades, and the early nineteenth century. He lives near Seattle with his longtime partner, Jim Tedord, and their doted-upon cats.

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand.  She shares her home with two cats who are convinced that the house is run to suit them; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date it appears as though the cats may be winning.

In 2008 she completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra.

She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth.

Anne’s books have twice received honorable mentions and twice reached the finals in the Rainbow Awards.
