Bayana is a writer, reader, and Potterhead. She prefers staying indoors, blasting music until she turns deaf, and reading about magical, intergalactic, timey-wimey things. She is in the process of writing her first novel/series, and often finds herself committing to things that are much larger and time-consuming than she originally expects them to be (this novel being one of them). Bayana was born and raised in Oakland, California but is now living in Chicago.

Robyn has been a nerd since her first Scholastic school fair. Life forever changed when she discovered the Harry Potter Series and nothing was the same for her or the people around her.  Robyn is a true California girl, born and raised all over Southern California she now lives in Oakland, but will always make it home to San Diego for Comic-Con. Robyn has never been a social butterfly preferring instead to spend her time indoors bonding with her Netflix queue. True nerds don't do sun. She sometimes struggles to understand her cofounder but takes pride in using her status as the oldest to pass down some cultural gems. Her favorite things include playing vinyl records in dark rooms, browsing city library shelves,  sporadic marathons of Doctor Who and Harry Potter, and preparing for the robot takeover.
