Jennifer Graham was born and raised in Brooklyn NY, but spends a great deal of her vacation time in Barbados or the United Kingdom with family and friends. Her first published story, “Intelligence”, appeared in the anthology Beacons of Tomorrow. Her story “Burden of Proof” appeared in Nights of Blood 2 in 2009. She also writes Sci-Fi Romance under the name Jacqueline Zest. Her sci-fi romance adventure novella “Star-filled Wishes”, set in the Future Jinn universe, was published in 2011. Previous jobs include: a chemist, a programmer, a data processor in a financial firm and an administrative assistant. More of her writing can be found at jennjettmedia.wordpress.com.
Michael Ben-Zvi has had a long-standing love of science fiction and fantasy adventure ever since his first time watching Star Wars as an impressionable youth. He has participated in several New York-based writing groups and critique sessions over the years, gradually honing his ability to put into words where his mind has always chosen to wander. Residing in Manhattan, but a refugee from suburban New Jersey, Michael is a graphic designer and desktop publisher with a history in the corporate world, and is now seeking to explore ever more strange new worlds. In addition to his work with Infinite Dimensions, he is currently developing his own collection of speculative short fiction for an independent release and a series of novels expanding upon the universe in his story for Infinite Dimensions: Crossroads.
Mackenzie Reide is a mechanical engineer, writer and adventurer. She also dabbles in aerospace so, yes, you can call her a rocket scientist. She loves to see strong girls in stories which is reflected in her middle grade novels, The Mystery of Troll Creek, The Mask of the Troll, and The Mine Caper from The Adventurers trilogy. She has also pondered alternate history in her short stories “Shifting Gears” in the anthology Altered States of the Union and “Cascadia” in the anthology Infinite Dimensions: Crossroads. Her short story “Asteroid XXII” is in the science fiction anthology Infinite Dimensions: Memory. For more information, check out her website at www.mackenziereide.com.
Shirley Chan has been writing and telling stories all her life—don’t all writers say something similar? Storytelling is her creative outlet, as after the science Ph.D., and then the current cat-herding job of project management to pay the bills, she spends her time either consuming stories or trying to spin her own. A few hard-learned truisms: saying you’ll do it and doing it are not the same; unemployment, while unwelcome, can certainly be a huge catalyst to creative productivity.
