In grade school, Christina Lea did her homework twice to prove that her way was better than the teacher's, and she's been right ever since. After slipping out the back door of the local university with a degree in psychology, she worked in laboratories, charted ground water movement, started fires, ran a comic book store, learned how to program for the web, designed and implemented a couple of web applications for a fat-cat corporation, forgot how to program for the web, and wrote all kinds of stuff, including games, technical specifications, proposals, news articles, revolutionary leaflets, stories, and really long sentences. Some of these things she did for her own company, Peryton Publishing, and some she did for people who paid her — or were supposed to pay her. You might also remember her as Tanith E. Howard of the Dunwich Herald. She lives in Cleveland with a cosmic superhero and a bunch of cats.
