Noelle M.

Noelle is a cradle Catholic with a love for adoration and all things football (Roll Tide). She spends her days immersed in stories and air conditioning in an effort to survive the 9 month summer of the Deep South (so far, so good). A romantic at heart, she can occasionally (always) be coaxed into ballroom dancing. For more of Noelle M., visit her blog, or email her at

Elizabeth S. 

Elizabeth is a cradle Catholic, an English master’s student, a wife to a Catholic convert, a mother-to-be, and an office manager at a local university’s writing center. With all that, life is anything but boring for this Alabama native. She can be frequently caught sitting outside listening to the rain and thunder, writing fiction for fun, or reading her favorite fantasy author. She has a blog, but she has put it on hold for the moment while she finishes her master’s degree.
