Notes on Contributors
Born and raised Nigerian, Lewis Agulue‘s culture taught him that a hard working man comes home everyday with the evidence of toil on his shirt and his hands; so whenever he finishes writing, he likes to roll around in the dirt to keep up the tradition. He loves riding motorcycles because of the freedom he experiences, and he loves creative writing because it gives him the the chance to fully explore his imagination and its endless possibilities.
Xuan-Nhan Cornett spent the greater part of her life learning from the seemingly polar cultures of her Vietnamese mother and American father. She spends most of her time and energy investing in different ways to express her understanding of her world. So far, these expressions have taken form through the visual and literal arts.
Joseph Mokouba-Sony was born and groomed by a black man in “Black man’s land.” His vision is that he will one day wear a stainless white gown with a stethoscope hanging around his neck and his fingers cautiously gripping a scalpel while he waits for the next victim of cardiac arrest to save. Surely, he won’t forget to say his prayers before laying his scalpel on the troubled organ.
Jason Pastora has worked in the automotive industry over the last decade. Unhappy with his job status, he returned to school trying to earn a degree in computer science. He loves to write as a form of expressing ideas within his mind, and hopes one day to improve his writing skills enough to possibly have a story published in some form of media.
Jason Reinhardt has lived in Houston so long he finds the weather pleasant. He hopes to be published in literary journals with cool names (Prairie Schooner, Eleven Eleven, Sugar House Review, Zoetrope: All-Story, etc.). A self-help book is not forthcoming.
Jaimy Reynolds has achieved the true riches of life becoming humble with a pure heart, mind, and soul. He has found inner peace in a world in which good people are becoming extinct. This son of God flies although he has been set up to fall.
Katarzyna Suchodolska is a kitchen mess-maker from Poland. She truly believes that no matter what the question, the answer is always chocolate.
