J.D. Doherty is actually two people: a brother-sister team, Jack and Diana, that writes in tandem. They have been writing together for almost ten years, though this is their first joint publication. Both live in Virginia and are looking to finish their college degrees in computer science and anthropology, respectively.
Two of Diana’s pieces have been published elsewhere; “The Cursed Axe” appeared in Silver Blade this past February, and “The Judgement of the Peacekeeper” was published in Kzine‘s issue 6.
