Scott Lynch

I am a resident of Waverley, Nova Scotia. I have lived, studied (Acadia University), and worked in Nova Scotia all my life (except for that year in Australia as a Rotary Exchange Student). I have had the good fortune to travel and love that food so quickly brings us together in so many ways. I am an amateur poet, cook, and photographer and have learned so much from my three sons, now young men.

Some experiences I’ve had: A Canadian Olympic Torch runner in 1988 (with a friend) & 2010 who has run the tracks at Ancient Delphi, Ancient Olympia and the Modern Olympic track in Athens, Greece; climbed to the top of the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt; sailed in a hot air balloon over the Serengeti in Kenya; and jumped from a perfectly good airplane in Coldbrook, Nova Scotia.

Catherine A. MacKenzie

Catherine A. MacKenzie escapes from her mundane world by writing poems and short fiction. Although she writes all genres, she often veers toward the dark and death, composing fiction most women can relate to. Though, at first reading, her stories may appear bizarre, they are so ominously real that one wonders what lives hidden within her mind. Cathy has been published in various print and online publications. She has also self-published several poetry and short story collections, available as e-books and in print on Amazon and Smashwords.

Cathy also paints, pastels being her favourite medium and her grandchildren her favourite subjects. She lives with her husband in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The couple winters in Ajijic, Mexico, where her works have appeared in local publications.
