C.L. Alden has a Creative Writing degree from University of Arizona and currently lives in central Massachusetts. She grew up as a Navy “brat” and spent her childhood moving around until 8th grade when her father retired and they settled down, near his hometown, in Owls Head, Maine. Though technically still considered “from away” by some Mainers, Cristina’s love of the area and its history inspired her to write this book. When she is not writing Cristina, a creative spirit, finds other outlets such as photography, gardening and cooking. She is a general dabbler of this and that, and a seeker of adventure and tall tales.

It started with single comic book. Jeremy’s mother was determined to make a reader out of him. Shunning traditional literature at a young age, his mother placed X-Men Classic #69 in his lap and for the first time he was exposed to the phrases, “Mutants,” “BAMF,” and “SNIKT.” From that moment on, he imagined his enrollment at Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters at 1407 Graymalkin Lane. Jeremy came to writing late in his professional career. It wasn’t until 2006 that he participated in his first NaNoWriMo, writing an epic science fiction novel. Since then he has focused his writing on his dystopian superhero series.
