About the Author
Jess Lourey (rhymes with "dowry") is best known for her critically-acclaimed Murder-by-Month mysteries, which have earned multiple starred reviews from Library Journal and Booklist, the latter calling her writing "a splendid mix of humor and suspense." Jess also writes sword and sorcery fantasy, edge-of-your-seat YA adventure, and magical realism, literary fiction, and thrillers. She is a tenured professor of creative writing and sociology, a recipient of The Loft's 2014 Excellence in Teaching fellowship, and a sought-after workshop leader and keynote speaker who delivered the 2016 "Rewrite Your Life" TEDx Talk. When not teaching, reading, traveling, writing, or hanging out with her family, you can find her dreaming of her next story. You can find out more at www.jessicalourey.com. Tony VanDenEinde (rhymes with "band of the nineties") is the second half of the dynamic duo. Tony brings ideas to life in a visual way that makes sense, from 3D illustrations to sketching, motion graphics to board games. Tony's interactive iPad app Bill the Raccoon, heralded his new BrainPunch series, which teaches children using proven multimedia and mnemonic techniques. When he is not creating visual magic, or completing creative projects with his very talented wife, you can find him traveling, playing volleyball, or spending time with family and friends.
