TAMARA HERMAN Born in Montreal, Quebec, but grew up in Toronto, Ontario. I am young enough to look good for my age, but old enough to refuse to tell anyone. I am pitifully overeducated and woefully underpaid (go figure). I have been teaching English literature and psychological deconstruction of literature for over 20 years to senior secondary school students. I am also a complete English lit nerd. I predominantly enjoy gothic horror and earlier 20th C works (Shelley, Poe, Wilde, Fitzgerald, Bradbury, Huxley, Orwell, etc.). Mythopoeic Criticism and psychological deconstruction of literature is where I find solace - the connections between literature across the world and over the generations is astounding. I have had a lifelong passion for writing. I have had several works of non-fiction published nationally, as well as some of my poetry published in an anthology. My best friend Cindy Aronson and I co-authored our first novel which was published in 2015 and we are currently working on the second and third in the series. Our first screenplay is an adaptation of our novel. We have also co-written a TV comedy pilot script, along with several episodes. I often write about my personal experiences with mental illness. I find writing about it cathartic and helps me to cope with negativity. I am a very strong technical writer - focusing on grammar, syntax, and style. But I also write emotionally and with a great sense of dynamism. Some irrelevant things about me: I am painfully enamoured with Benedict Cumberbatch. The Brits have RUINED me for all other men, sigh. BBC Sherlock is quite possibly some of the most impressive writing around. My favourite words include: apothecary, penultimate, Oaxaca CINDY ARONSON I grew up in the suburbs of Toronto with my single mom and brothers. I wouldn’t say my childhood was an easy one, but then again, our experiences, both the good and the bad, make us who we are. I proudly admit to being a lover of fiction, experiencing my first real relationship with a book when introduced to Judy Blume’s iconic novel Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret, when I was eleven years old. My passion for reading grew as I did, and I have spent much of the last thirty-something years indulging my appetite for fiction. My taste in genres may have changed drastically over the years….erotic romance is certainly a far cry from Judy Blume’s stories of preteen self discovery and angst…but my passion for a strong story and dynamic characters has never waned. I have always had an intense and vivid imagination, writing my own stories, scripts, songs, and poetry from the time I was six years old. I have won poetry contests, had my work turned into song and performed at Young People’s Theatre in Toronto, and I’ve published in various anthologies. My passion for literature and my intrinsic need to understand my own psyche and its various imbalances, structured my university experience. Graduating with degrees in psychology and education prepared me for the future I thought I was destined for. However, the world we live in can be quite unpredictable, and so instead of teaching high school English and social studies, I began my career in special education, and upon beginning my family just four years later, I decided to become a substitute teacher. And that is what I have been doing for the last sixteen years.
