About the Author
Carly Joelle Strickland has been in love with art since she learned to color inside the lines. She graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2011 from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a degree in Illustration. While at SCAD she was involved in Writer’s Block and played Ophelia in a studio production of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. During the summer before her senior year, Carly held a graphic design internship at EBSCO Media. Carly is the proud mother of two fancy rats, Queenie and Duchess, expect to see them in a future Matter Deep story. She loves old Star Trek episodes and says the word “awesome” an awful lot.
