Julia Goss was teased at university because of coming from Scunthorpe, a steel town which many otherwise rational people still believe lies on the east coast. She now lives in the beautiful Forest of Dean, a forgotten slice of Gloucestershire, uninhabited by any member of the royal family, where she taught for many years in primary schools but is now a gardener.

Martin Choules has been rhyming for the last ten years and still hasn't found a match for purple or month. He regularly attends Pitshanger Poets in Ealing, and his publication credits include Snakeskin and Brittle Star.
