Cari Corene began life in the frozen north where she unwittingly and irrevocably became tied to the natural world as a source of inspiration. Whether that natural world is a spruce forest in Anchorage, an elegant street of time affected row houses in Baltimore, or the globally experienced change from one season to another seems only to spur different inspirations, not so much different quantities of inspiration. Presently Cari Corene illustrates her webcomic, found at storyofthedoor.com, and works assorted freelance. She has a BFA in sequential art from the Savannah College of Art & Design and aspires to illustrate for trading card games, paint childre's picture books, continue creating comics on the web, and above all else to design entertaining characters.

Steph Stober is a freelance illustrator who never quite grew out of cartoons and comic books. Most of her time is spent drawing, spoiling her two rabbits (Caesar and Houdini), and generally geeking out about nerdy things on the internet. As the creator of Final Arcanum, she enjoys nothing more than telling tales of pirates and magic, and just how well the two can mix together.

Crystal Yates has been writing and drawing Earthsong since June of 2004, when she completed her honours Ba in Fine Art History, Egyptology and Archaeology with which she hoped to become a museum curator or teacher. She took a year off of her scholarly pursuits to recharge her mental batteries and make a little money working. Part of the former endeavour was the launch of Earthsong, which had been brewing in her head for the last year or so. Started solely as a hobby/distraction, Earthsong was eventually redrawn and then published by Seven Seas Entertainment in June 2006. Sales did not go as well as hoped, and so Earthsong has since been dropped from their catalog but, as you've probably noticed, it continues online. Aside from her comic making, Crystal enjoys playing her guitar - or rather would enjoy playing her guitar if her sons would let her - reading, mythology, Star Trek, henna tattooing, collecting fonts, cartoons, comics, coconut, concerts, cooking and alliteration with a side of pun. She thinks of herself as a "Tomgeek", a woman whose interests lie in the stereotypically geeky male domain, which inspired her to found the all-female webcomic collective, tomgeeks.com, in November 2007, which is open to any female creator. Born in 1980, she was married in April 2006, has two adorable boys, and is currently persuing a career in the eternally underappreciated profession of a full-time mom while moonlighting as a comic artist. Needless to say, Crystal has yet to become a museum curator or teacher, but life seldom turns out as expected, eh?
