Tyler Bell – Westside Fairytales
Tyler was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, at the ass end of the 1980s. St. Judes Catholic School got rid of him by sixth grade and he came up in the public school system with the lions share of his generation. His childhood was a lot of hand-me-downs and hard work, of doing whether or not you wanted to and going back out to fight even if you were scared.
And he read. Lots. And thought about writing his own books.
The towers falling on 9/11 changed his plans for his future just about as much as anybody else in that era. And, five years after watching thousands die live in his freshman typing class, Tyler was clapped up in body armor with Second Battalion, Eighth Marines outside of Fallujah. He did three combat deployments with the Marines as an infantry 0331 and rejoined society drunk, angry, and pissed off about being alive when other people weren't.
Writing saved his life. He started with journalism in college and found himself suddenly drinking less and going out more, wanting to know about people. He could feel the world through their stories, through the scrawls they left on the inside of his skull, more than he could feel using his own skin. He found the shards of the person he could become inside others, and slowly, painstakingly put himself back together.
He caught the itch soon after and started writing for himself, doing whatever he could to commit the stories he couldn't write the news to paper. Stories too grotesque or banally cruel for publication. The true lives of the blue collar folk he'd grown up alongside — folks the world just always seemed ready to write off and forget — he wrote about them.

Leigh Pfeffer – History is Gay
Leigh is a museum worker by day, queer history aficionado and podcaster by night/any spare time they get. They love telling stories about badass folks from history and present who dare to live authentically and add light and love to the world. Leigh is a giant geek as well, can't (and won't) shut up about TV, comics, and the importance of representation on-screen and off. They have a degree in European History and Theater, and wrote their thesis on ascetic medieval women and all the ways they messed with the patriarchy, and flirted for a long time with slapping on an archaeology degree as well, because why not! Bones, yo. They're so neat. Now, they can usually be seen frantically running around craft stores working on cosplays, spending entirely way too much money at comic conventions, and muttering obscenities under breath at Adobe Premiere Pro while honing video editing skills. And usually consuming more Netflix than is probably healthy. Likes: seeing hopeful and representative stories reflected in media, new comic book Wednesdays, also tea, petting all the dogs, and their bed. Dislikes: cisheteronormativity, the patriarchy, and the word moist.
