Known affectionately by her kids as "Indiana Mom", Dr. Mel. White renounced the Dilbert-In-Cube-Land existence of a computer programmer for a life of adventure, books, artwork, music, digging up dinosaurs (yes, really), and writing.
She's had a number of cartoons and comic book stories published as well as three graphic novels (the Duncan & Mallory series with the late Robert Asprin.) Her fiction has appeared in magazines and five different anthologies.
Sam Voss wanted to go west and write about its history and culture, but the only culture he encountered were a pair of robbers who beat him up and left him for dead.
