We also have a couple of contributors out on sabbatical. The rest of us continue to hone our skills in all facets of the writer's life, as well as rigorous training in swordplay, jousting, and climbing walls of ice. (Can you tell I've been watching a wee bit of Game of Thrones?)
With the buds and blooms of spring, it seemed a fine time to bring on a couple more recruits. They all received their letters via Owl Post, and I am happy to say they have embarked on the Mayhem Express, and will be adding to the constant excitement that is Project Mayhem.
Without further ado, let me introduce the newest stars of the blogosphere:
Jim Hill: Flaming Snot Rockets! Jim is a mild mannered designer by day, and children's book creator by night. He writes middle-grade and young adult stories packed with humor, heart and lots of action. He is a member of SCBWI, the Vice-President of the Cape Cod Writers Center and graduated with an MFA in Creative Writing for Children & Young Adults from VCFA in January 2014.

Joanna Roddy ~ Joanna is a freelance writer and novelist, represented by The Cooke Agency. Growing up, Joanna could usually be found up a tree with a book or onstage in a costume. Her favorite stories have always been about new worlds, magic, and adventure, and her first novel, Jules and the Djinn Master, is a middle grade fantasy in the tradition of the books she loved to read growing up. She lives in a little blue farmhouse called Mapleside with her son, daughter, husband, and two cats in the Seattle area and when she's not writing or taking care of her littles, she can be found gardening, teaching high school composition, and, of course, reading.
Thanks to the three of you for boldly going where few have gone before--into the mouth of the Mayhem. We're looking forward to some great posts, friendship, and fun. WELCOME!
