As an anthropologist, Lesann divides her time between academic interests and professional research. Focused primarily on the American west, she is inspired by the geologic features of empty landscapes. The ancient art and prehistory of those settings often feature in her work. She writes about messed-up people and sinister events, saying her stories often feature paranormal or romantic elements because life is boring without spooky stuff and warm bodies. Crossing genre lines, she pens both contemporary and historical mysteries, romantic suspense, and even a little horror. For for information about upcoming releases visit the Lesann Berry website.

D. Blake Werts
Blake is a perpetual student and if pressed, will insist he’s damn good at software development, which he chose to pursue professionally. His attention is drawn to all things analog, so if he’s babbling about the past, this is likely the cause. He enjoys vacationing with his wonderful wife and pup, snapping away with vintage/toy cameras, smashing fingers in letterpress equipment, organizing classical Long Play collections, or seeking out dusty books. Blake graduated with a degree in Computer Science from Clemson University in Clemson, SC, and a degree in English Literature from Queens University in Charlotte, NC.
