Zach Ricks is an attorney / project manager / writer / aspiring imperialist warmonger living in Austin TX with a very understanding wife and daughter. He found science fiction at five years old when his parents made the tactical error of taking him to see “Star Wars” while visiting family in Alaska. They later recalled that it was the first time they’d taken him to a movie where he hadn’t been whining about having to go to the bathroom or wanting popcorn. And while it was a welcome change, it also sort of freaked them out. He grew up on a potato farm in Idaho, which gave him a lot of time riding around on tractors and pondering “Wouldn’t it be cool if…” Today, he can be found occasionally posting short stories at MadPoetFiles.com. His latest project is Flying Island Press – a publisher of e-magazines for anything with a screen or a pair of earphones.
Laura Nicole started out writing poems and short stories throughout school and got her dramatic blood circulating through community theatre. In 2007 she was introduced to audio drama by her father Alan Spencer, who needed an authentic German accent for a show. After 2 years of voice acting, Laura helped start Gypsy Audio and the group allowed her to put some of her poetry and stories into an audio format while still acting in several different shows. After helping David out with editing scripts for one of his shows, they became literary partners in crime bouncing ideas off of one another which prompted the start of Scrivener’s Circle.
