The infamous Slush Wrangler, aka the Tortoise, is a mildly published individual with a horror of adverbs. Oh, no! There’s one now. Sneaking up, tortoise bashes its head in with a hammer. Contrary to the nickname, stories will be read promptly. Another one. Whips out a knife. Shwoosh! Snick! Preferring pulp to literature, the Tortoise is Ms. Mitchell’s evil twin, separated at birth, and raised by … well … tortoises.
Mari Mitchell lives in the high deserts of California. She has been married for over ten years, has two sons, two pet rats (who are actively plotting to take over the nearby space port,) and one very round, very loved cat (who is passively-aggressively taking over the couch and computer.)
