About the Author

Shelly Page is a young adult contemporary fantasy and horror writer making her editorial debut with Night of the Living Queers. By day, she's a practicing attorney representing homeless LGBTQ+ youth of color. By night, she's planning ways to scare her readers while simultaneously awakening their inner gay. She's an oil painter, a lover of autumn, and possibly the only lesbian who doesn't own a cat.

Alex Brown loves rooting for the final girl--especially if she's a monster. Alex has a short story in the instant Indie bestselling young adult folk horror anthology, The Gathering Dark. Alex is also the cocreator of The Bridge, a narrative fiction podcast that's had over one million downloads to date! Alex's sapphic YA horror-comedy debut is Damned If You Do. Alex lives in Los Angeles with her partner and their two very chaotic cats. Night of the Living Queers is her editorial debut. As far as she knows, she hasn't summoned an Eldritch God who loves pizza . . . yet.
