H. L. Nelson is Chief Cud Chewer of Cease, Cows. Her publications include Nightmare, The Big Click, and others. Her story “A Creature Comes Home” was chosen by Kevin Brockmeier for The Masters Review Volume IV anthology. The dark fiction anthology she co-edited, Choose Wisely: 35 Women Up to No Good (Upper Rubber Boot Books), is available now. It includes stories by Joyce Carol Oates, Diane Cook, Cat Rambo, Aimee Bender, Rachel Swirsky, and other badass women. H. L. lives in Dallas (and detests country music and football) with her musician husband, two amazing boys, a corgi-mix pup named Scruffy “Super Sword,” and a skittish spitz named Annabel Lee.
