Fred Meissner says: "I decided to 'live life to the fullest' by playing at writing and working as a high school English/Special Education teacher; having enjoyed some success in both areas, I will eventually retire from teaching, build a papier-mâché glider from my rejection slips, and soar peacefully into Oblivion's misty realms.

I do, however, have a few recent publishing credits: they include Ascent Aspirations, Electro-Twaddle, Armada Quarterly, Poetry Canada, and a broadside for Rubicon Press. As well Cezanne's Carrot, Toward the Light, and The Fieldstone Review have each published one of my personal essays and I've had the opportunity to read some of my work at the Eden Mills Writers Festival."

Krystyna Laycraft, theoretical physicist, painter and photographer was born in Poland. She finished her study at The University of Warsaw. After moving to Canada, she worked as a scientist at The University of Calgary on Aurora Borealis and studied art by attending variety courses.

Her fascination with nature as an artist is expressed in painting and photographing dynamic systems, like flowing water, moving, and changing color and shape clouds, growing trees, plants and flowers.
As a physicist, she wants to share with people beauty and richness of the chaos theory.
Chaos is about letting go, and the possibility of living not as controllers of nature but as creative participators. By paying attention to tiny and insignificant things, we open ourselves to creative dimensions.

Jeremy Garwood was born near Reading, UK. After studies in Chemistry and Biology at the University of Exeter, he worked as a research assistant on insect moulting hormones, then travelled for six months across Southern Asia and Eastern Australia to the Australian National University. Here, he spent several years investigating the molecular biology of insect development for his PhD. His post-doctoral research in France at the Institut Jacques Monod, Paris was upon hormonal control of fly gene expression, and the regulation of chromosome replication in bacteria. In Heidelberg, Germany, he discovered an interest for the extracellular matrix in mouse brains, and he has cloned and investigated several of the molecules implicated in brain formation and repair, a topic that he has pursued in Strasbourg, France.

He has published numerous scientific research reports, reviews and book chapters, but 'ABCPhD' is his first completed novel. He will work on his second novel during a sabbatical year in Montreal, Canada.
