Claire Shepherd

I am a lover of literature and language equally. I graduated with a BA in English from the University of Northern Colorado and will be working on my MA in English from the same institution. I am a reader and a writer with a passion for knights, chivalry, and quests. I have spent countless days at Hogwarts and Camelot; I have been to Middlemarch; and I’ve sailed a river with my good friends Huck and Jim. I am a lover of Historical novels—both fiction and non-fiction. I’ve traveled the world in my books, and I’m always up for a new adventure. I live in Loveland with my husband and my library. 

Bio picture

Bonnie Walker

My family tells me that I have been correcting people since I was two years old; I have since grown into a full-fledged grammar stickler. I enjoy helping people improve their writing. I love words and the way they work together to tell stories. Reading is my favorite hobby, and fantasy is by far my favorite genre. I love to travel and learn the stories of other peoples and places. I lived in France and Belgium for over two years, and I am fluent in French—which has taught me more about the English language than any of my English classes. I graduated with a BA in English and history from the University of Denver and hope to continue my studies in literary history.
