About the Author
When not crafting fictional worlds and surfing Pinterest, Myisha Haynes works full-time as a games artist in San Francisco. She earned an MFA in Visual Development at the Academy of Art University and a BA in English at UC Santa Barbara (but is still a pretty questionable speller). She loves fall and winter but is also from California, and therefore has no idea what a real winter looks like. Besides her modern fantasy webcomic, The Substitutes, her work can also be seen in the award-winning Elements Anthology: Fire, Rolled & Told, Power & Magic 2, and Marvel's Gwenpool.
