About the Readers:

Raised in the great state of Kansas, Farooq Ahmed is a graduate of the Columbia University Creative Writing Program and of Brown University, where he studied biochemistry. He is a Contributing Editor for Photonics magazine, and his writing has appeared in the Financial Times, Nature, and The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. His work has been lauded by the South Asian Journalists Association, and he lives in Los Angeles. KANSASTAN is his debut novel.

Nicole Mabry grew up in Northern California but has lived in Queens for the past 17 years. She went to college at UCLA and Cal State Hayward, graduating with degrees in Art History, Photography and Digital Graphics. She currently works at NBCUniversal managing Photography Post Production for Bravo, SYFY and USA Network. Her award-winning photography has graced the covers of books internationally and has been featured in shows throughout the city. After a successful 20-year career in photography, she decided to take a left turn and go from telling a story with an image, to telling a story with words. Nicole’s debut novel, an apocalyptic women’s fiction thriller, was inspired by a dream she had when a real life snow storm shut down all forms of public transportation in the city. PAST THIS POINT tells the story of one woman and her dog fighting to survive during a deadly virus outbreak that renders New York City a ghost town.

A former Wallace Stegner Fellow and Merrill House and Clampitt House resident, Peter Kline teaches writing at the University of San Francisco and in Stanford University’s Master of Liberal Arts Program. He is the author of two poetry collections, Deviants (SFASU Press, 2013), and Mirrorforms, which was published by Parlor Press/Free Verse Editions in the fall of 2019.
