Karen Dudley loves both writing and preparing fine foods, so writing about a chef comes naturally to her. She began her career by writing wildlife biology books for kids but was lured into writing mysteries for the satisfaction of bumping off people in fiction who irritated her in real life. She has now either seen the light or gone to the 'dark side' (depending on your point of view) by switching genres to speculative fiction. Food for the Gods is her first historical fantasy novel. A sequel, Kraken Bake, is currently in the works.
Chadwick Ginther is the author of Thunder Road, a Norse mythology inspired Urban Fantasy, releasing Fall 2012. His short fiction has found a home in On Spec, Tesseracts 16 and the forthcoming Fungi anthology from Innsmouth Free Press. When he's not writing his own books, he's selling everyone else's as a bookseller and genre buyer for Canada's largest independent bookstore.
Turnstone Press is one of Manitoba’s most respected independent literary presses, publishing quality fiction, non-fiction, and poetry for over 35 years. In 1998 Turnstone Press launched Ravenstone, an imprint of literary genre titles.
