About the Author

Vera Gómez, the daughter of Mexican immigrants, is a native Texan who now works in corporate communications in upstate South Carolina. She has been prominent in the world of performance poetry on the local, regional, and national levels. Joel McCollough has worked both in desktop publishing and as a teacher in the public schools. His poems, widely published in literary magazines, often reflect his lifelong residence in the Greenville area. Terri McCord, recipient of the 2001-2002 Literary Arts Fellowship in Poetry from the South Carolina Arts Commission, often writes about parent-child relationships and the place of animals in our lives. Kimberly Jane Simms, a celebrated performance poet, hosted the 2004 World Poetry Slam Championship in Greenville. Brian Slusher, author of “Paranormal Romance” (below), teaches high school drama and English. His poems, frequently published in literary journals, are notable for the breadth and playfulness of their author’s imagination.
