Lisa Lutz

Lisa is the New York Times-bestselling author of the Spellman series of comedic crime novels: The Spellman Files, Curse of the Spellmans, Revenge of the Spellmans, The Spellmans Strike Again, and the forthcoming Trail of the Spellmans, which will be published in spring 2012. The series has received Edgar, Anthony, and Macavity nominations, and each title has been a selection of the Indie Next List. Despite having attended UC Santa Cruz, UC Irvine, the University of Leeds, and San Francisco State, Lisa still does not have a bachelor’s degree or know what caliginous means. She lives in San Francisco.

David Hayward

David runs a small writing and editing business in Healdsburg, California, where he does not grow pot or have a cat. His poetry has won a Pushcart Prize and appeared in Harper’s and other magazines. He received an MFA in poetry from UC Irvine during the 20th century. Heads You Lose is David’s first published fiction. He’s now working on a novel of his own, about a family of gamblers. It will probably be called Hollow Leg, though Lisa continues to refer to it as The Mellman Files. If it gets published, he expects his name on the cover to be huge.
