Abigail Grimes is a multi-genre author of gripping fiction, poetry, and nonfiction with heart, and the host of Written By Grimes: The Podcast. Inspired by the world around her, Abigail’s work centres relatable yet flawed women in our contemporary world – their struggles, joy, and pain, and all the things they wish their mothers had warned them about. She is the author of the thriller The Violence of Fire and the poetry and prose collection For The Quiet, and the upcoming contemporary domestic thriller, Beautiful Things.

Judith Shaw is a poet and a member of the Durham Storytellers. She is the author of the children’s book My Grandmother Said Art Is Everywhere. Judith was born in Kingston, Jamaica and raised by her Grandma Wawa. Judith believes grandparents are wise and special, and that they should be loved, honoured, and respected.
