In a past life MARY MUSSELMAN taught English, speech and creative writing at the high school level. However, she found she preferred writing rather than teaching. "When my students wrote," says Mary, "I also followed my assignments and discovered that I was my best student!" Mary has been writing short stories and personal essays for several years. Her short story “An Ageless Kiss” will appear soon in Haunts. “The Never Ending Game” will be published in Mausoleum in October 2001, and “A Change of Heart” will appear in Waxing & Waning. Mary adds that in her spare time "I work as an account clerk at Purdue University, read mystery novels, and take care of my pet chinchilla."

Over the past few  years, CAROL MacALLISTER has  had over150 short stories and poems published. She has won numerous writing awards and has been published in several anthologies.

VIVIAN LEE MARSDEN has been writing on paper since her mother told her to stop writing on the walls. That was in her childhood house on Admiral Grove, Liverpool, England. An interesting child full of imagination, she believed she saw fairies in her backyard and tried to take photographs of them. Nobody believed they were hiding in the mushrooms. Especially since there weren't any mushrooms in the picture (obviously just in her head). Her M.O. for writing seems to be centered around a lyric of a song, a song title or anything musical. She loves writing the bizarre and unusual because she herself is bizarre and unusual. Other times though, she just writes whatever comes out of her brain. "If I were an artist, I'd draw or paint, but since I can't seem to do that, I write whatever comes out of my head."

STEPHEN A. AMAN  "As a writer I always watch for the arrival of a story idea.  In this case it came in the middle of a rock concert in form of a strange girl that kept appearing. The event was so striking that I had to write about it the following day. As a writer I have been published only a few times, but each is a stone and I am building my own path. Someday the destination will be more than a spot on the horizon."
