Abby Dryer is kind of the coolest person ever. When she’s not solving problems or saving companies, she’s being the dopest purple-haired, petticoat and sparkly-shoes wearing friend that anyone could want. And on top of that she’s a blues dancer, aikido student, knitting prodigy, and master of the “do you REALLY wanna do that” eyebrow.


Paul Teodo

Paul Teodo is a retired healthcare exec and long time Chicagoan. His first novel Pastaman is a gritty coming of age story of a troubled young man growing up on Chicago’s south side and his quest for redemption. 


Suzanne Faber

Suzanne Faber is 60 years old and no longer cares if she loses 10 pounds.
