Jason is an English teacher and runs a small creative writing program. He’s had a few pieces of fiction published in small places and is currently trying to sell his novel Lonely Human Atoms, which is about a dysfunctional physicist. He is also working on a collection of interconnected short stories because he can’t help himself. His book tastes can be generalized to literary fiction and science-y nonfiction. He also enjoys a good chuckle a la Bill Bryson or David Sedaris.
Ever the glutton for punishment, you can find Jason at three other places on the internets. He maintains a personal blog called The Winesburg Eagle where he writes about teaching and writing and music and being liberal in a conservative world. He also writes about the Cincinnati Reds baseball playing club at Redleg Nation and occasionally contributes baseball articles to the nationally renowned site The Hardball Times (as a bonus, every Tuesday, the articles at THT are guaranteed Jason-edited for extra goodness).
(Don’t mind the baby on Cate’s back. That’s the only way anything gets done around here.)
Cate grew up reading in lieu of studying her multiplication tables. These days she’s a stay-at-home mom who tries to make as much time for reading and writing as possible. Completely unrelated to writing, she runs a small dye business at Colored by Cate. Her typical book pile is fairly eclectic, consisting of literary fiction, memoir, poetry, plays, feminist theory, and sundry nonfiction. She is an alumni of the Kentucky Governor’s School for the Arts, has had poetry published in Strong Verse, and is currently working on her first novel.
Around the blogosphere, Cate writes about balancing marriage, motherhood, and the pursuit of simple living at her personal blog, Liberal Simplicity, and is a regular contributor to Great Clips’ Everything Great campaign. Her writing has been syndicated by BlogHer.
