DeAnna Knippling grew up on the Great Plains, a land driven by expansionism, murder, corruption, and just plain good folks. She lives in a time where souls are bought and sold without even the benefit of a piece of paper to mark the exchange. And she’d feel bad for some of the monsters crushed by such things, but they shouldn’t have been there in the first place. She lives in Colorado with her husband and daughter, has been published in Big Pulp, Black Static, Crossed Genres, and more. Her latest book is Alice’s Adventures in Underland: The Queen of Stilled Hearts. You can find her at WonderlandPress.com and Facebook.
