Nancy Shoellkopf

Nancy Schoellkopf is a California poet and novelist who writes stories with spiritual themes. She is the author of the Avian Series of Novels–Yellow-Billed Magpie, Red-Tailed Hawk, and Ghost Owl–as well as the short story collection, Rover. In her books she has created a universe where each soul-orphaned, homeless, autistic, wounded, rich, poor, unremarkable, ageless-is discovered as a luminous gift. She invites the reader to ponder the extraordinary treasures hidden in the ordinary events of daily life. Based in Sacramento, Nancy spent over 30 years teaching amazing children in Special Education Classes in urban school districts. A full-time writer now, she enjoys lavishing attention on her cats, her garden, and her intriguing circle of family and friends.

Katya Mills-I am an Independent. I write mostly creative nonfiction and literary fiction set in American cities at the turn of the millennium. Chicago and NYC and San Francisco. 1990-2010. Lovers, dreamers, loners, scribblers, and latchkey kids. Predating the mobile phone. In 2013 I got off my ass and self-published my first novel, Girl Without Borders, a love triangle gone bad. Then I wrote a trilogy starring a girl with psychic powers. Currently I am putting finishing touches on a novella about 4 friends in Chicago, 1999, who are coming apart at the seams. I hold a BA in Literature from Northwestern University and an MA in Psychology from JFK University. I would like to thank Goodreads for helping press my work into the public imagination. My preferred tools of the trade are Scrivener, coffee and a Chromebook. I use my cats’ claws to draw blood. At night I morph into a social worker. You can find me at www.katyamills.com
