DL Shirey lives in Portland, Oregon, writing fiction, by and large, unless it's small. He has been caught flashing at Café Aphra, 365 Tomorrows, ZeroFlash and Fewer Than 500 among others. His story ‘6:58’ brings back thoughts to the reader of a life lived and is a wonderful addition to the Spring 2018 edition of NUNUM. DL can be found on Twitter at dlshirey or at www.dlshirey.com
Michael Guynn is currently a freshman at Dixie State University in Saint George, Utah, and is majoring in psychology. In his free time, he writes poetry, plays guitar, skis, longboards, and sells his art on skateboards. Someday he hopes to be a psychiatrist and inspire through art, writing, and creativity. Which is exactly why the Spring 2018 edition of NUNUM wouldn’t have been complete without having some of his work’s playful seriousness and right-now sense of place inside it.
