After spending the majority of her life battling sasquatches in the Great White North, she migrated south to Texas to have a go at the armadillos.

Jack Wells is a burgeoning author located in Northern Utah. He has been writing on and off since grade school, though most of his early works consist of bad poetry and even worse song lyrics. Some of his more serious writing experience includes penning amateur reviews of movies, novels (multiple genres), and video games for various websites. When not putting pen to paper, Jack can be found spending time with his sweet but quirky family, hiking, kayaking, and sipping whiskey by his fire pit.
His critically acclaimed series, Monochrome, Noir is set to wrap up Nov. and Dec. of '22 with the release of Parts 3 and 4.
One can often catch Jack taking spontaneous late night road trips throughout northern Utah with the latest retro synth music providing a surreal soundtrack. Outside of all the fun activities, Jack spends much of his time herding cats as a beleaguered government employee
