About the Author
Brad Ricca is the Edgar-nominated author of five books, including True Raiders, Olive the Lionheart, Mrs. Sherlock Holmes, and the award-winning Super Boys. His independent film Last Son won a Silver Ace Award. He lives in Cleveland, Ohio.

Courtney Sieh graduated from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 2016 with a BFA in illustration and an emphasis in interior architecture. Currently she is freelancing out of a swamp near Minneapolis, kept company at her drafting table by her two cats.

Nellie Bly (1864-1922), born Elizabeth Cochran Seaman, was an American journalist, industrialist, inventor, and charity worker who was widely known for her record-breaking trip around the world in seventy-two days, in emulation of Jules Verne's fictional character Phileas Fogg, and an exposé in which she worked undercover to report on a mental institution from within. She was a pioneer in her field and launched a new kind of investigative journalism.
Reviews
"Sieh's detailed ink drawings, reminiscent of 19th-century etchings, coupled with a hard-boiled adaptation by Ricca, retell the groundbreaking journalism of Bly, a reporter who went undercover to expose abuses at Blackwell's Asylum in 1887....this history bears repeating." -Publishers Weekly
