Ann Aptaker pic

Native New Yorker Ann Aptaker has earned a reputation as a respected if cheeky exhibition designer and curator of art during her career in museums and galleries. Taking the approach that what art authorities find uncomfortable the public would likely enjoy, exhibitions Ann has curated have garnered favorable reviews in the New York Times, Art in America, American Art Review, and other publications.
 
She brings the same attitude and philosophy to her first love: writing, especially a tangy variety of historical crime fiction. Ann’s short stories have appeared in two editions (2003 and 2004) of the noir crime anthology Fedora. Her flash fiction story, “A Night In Town,” appeared in the online zine Punk Soul Poet. In addition to curating and designing art exhibitions and writing crime stories, Ann is also an art writer and an adjunct professor of art history at the New York Institute of Technology. CRIMINAL GOLD is her debut novel.

R.G. Emanuelle pic

R.G. Emanuelle is from New York City, and spent more than 20 years as an editor, writer, and typesetter. When she was child, a neighbor called her a vampire because she only came out after dark, so it’s fitting that her first novel, Twice Bitten, is about creatures of the night. When she’s not writing or editing, she can usually be found cooking or developing recipes, as she is also a culinary school graduate, which is what inspired her to write her romantic novella, Add Spice to Taste, starring a love-burned chef. She is co-editor of All You Can Eat: A Buffet of Lesbian Erotica & Romance, Unwrap These Presents, and Skulls and Crossbones: Tales of Women Pirates, and her short stories can be found in numerous anthologies.Blog: www.rgemanuelle.com
