Erin Macdonald is a gravitational-wave astrophysicist turned writer, producer and science advisor (to Star Trek among others) in Los Angeles. In other words, a rocket scientist by day and a warp-drive expert by night.

Robert J. Sawyer is a Hugo- and Nebula-award winning science fiction writer who lives and works near Toronto. The Ottawa Citizen called him "the dean of Canadian science fiction."
