Josh - Josh Walker was born the third of seven children. He was raised in Cheyenne, WY. Growing up, he was a fan of Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. After graduating High School, he spent two years in Chile: learning the language and culture, meeting new people, and making lifelong friends.

He returned to the United States, taking an interest in early childhood education and spent eight years in that field. Going back to Chile to visit old friends, he found a new one - the best friend he ever had, Macarena. They have been married for seven years and have three children, a six month old boy, three year old boy, and five year old girl.

Josh has worked as the Creative Story Director for Apixal, an independent game developer. He also serves as Research Coordinator for Haunted North America.

When he isn't writing or working at his day job, he is spending time with his wife and kids.


Tom - The author, at various times in his life, has been a farmer, a soldier, a factory worker, a network engineer, a car mechanic, and a computer tech. Along the way, he’s driven big rigs over a million miles through six countries on two continents, built his own house, rebuilt a car or two from the frame up, and has even done some gunsmithing. He’s got prizes hanging on the wall of that house he built for IPSC pistol matches, and his homemade ale, although the perfect mead still eludes him. He’s lived in his car, in a van, on the plains of Wyoming, and the mountains of Colorado, with side trips to Central America and Europe. He’s had beers in the last beach bar on the Sun Coast of Florida and the Panama Canal Yacht club. He’s had a handful of great dogs, and loved one woman more than a man should. It’s been a ride. Here’s hoping we’re only at mid-track.
