Manuel Arduino Pavón nació en Montevideo en 1955. Actualmente reside en Buenos Aires. Estudió Literatura en la Universidad de la República de su país. Desde 1979 ha publicado más de cincuenta obras en Uruguay, en la Argentina, España, México, Costa Rica, Holanda, Canadá y los EE.UU. Con excepción de la Dramaturgia, lo intenta todo: ensayo (esotérico), aforística, narrativa, obras misceláneas y poesía. Su principal cualidad es la versatilidad, que le permite deambular por territorios tan antagónicos y sentirse a sus anchas en todos ellos. Una inclinación natural a la experimentación literaria lo acompaña desde sus primeros años en el oficio, pero los años de vida le permiten atenuar o pronunciar esos rasgos estentóreos según sean las circunstancias. La casi totalidad de su obra ha sido publicada fuera de su país. Una marcada inclinación cosmopolita y universal colorea sus trabajos, de forma que nunca se considerará exactamente como un representante típico de la literatura iberoamericana o uruguaya.

Marie Danielle Frankson was raised in the small town of Stony Creek, New York, which is nestled in the southern Adirondack Mountains, and graduated from Hadley-Luzerne Central School.

To live, you have to put yourself out there—to experience things whether they turn out the way you want or not, to set yourself up for vulnerability which may breed rejection and malice but can also breed acceptance and love. Life didn’t exactly come with a road map, but we all learn to navigate it in some way.” — from Balancing Act. Marie’s Açedrex titles are the young adult/coming-of-age novels The Transfer of Age and Balancing Act and the sci-fi apocalyptic novel Seeking Utopia. She is also the author of the poem “When I See an Eagle”. Interview with the author | Facebook | Author blog
Seymour Hamilton was a war baby, born in 1941 in England during an air-raid. He has also lived in Mauritius and many locations all over Canada. He now lives in Chelsea, Quebec, and has done for more than 20 years — the longest he has ever spent in one place. There he completed a lifetime’s ambition to write a story for boys and tomboys of all ages: The Astreya Trilogy, and where The Laughing Princess came out of a box in the basement and ventured into print. He studied English Literature and spent a few years teaching to enraptured students. He spent the last 20 years of his working life as an editor and writer-for-hire. He has two sons, Golden Retrievers, and a wife who continues to work so he can do what he loves: writing fiction.
