Katherine McIntyre


I split my time writing and working my day job as a massage therapist. If it’s a creative pursuit though, chances are I’ve dabbled in it. Hell, I’ve played around with soapmaking, beer brewing, cupcake baking, tea blending and everything else under the midday sun. I run a tea company, Solstice Brews, and my short stories, novellas, and novels (including steampunk ones) have been published through companies like Decadent Publishing, Breathless Press, and Hazardous Press.

Julia O’Connell is a bibliophile and lover of literature studying English and Linguistics at the College of William & Mary. Her favorite things to do (apart from reading) include dressing up and dancing. These two hobbies led to her discovery of Steampunk, first at Jeff Mach’s Wicked Faire, and later at Steampunk World’s Fair and assorted concerts of her favorite Steampunk musicians.


She can now be found teaching ballroom workshops at these conventions with her sister and fellow members of Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (https://www.facebook.com/whiskeytangofoxrotwtf). She’s also a writer and editor for the geeky blog, The Daily Geekette (http://dailygeekette.wordpress.com) and is hoping to enter the professional world of editing and publishing after she graduates.
