The four of us met while attending Maryville University near St. Louis, Missouri. All of us were pursuing our undergraduate degree in English and became quick friends. 

Once we graduated we decided that we wanted to write a novel together. We spent many afternoons and late nights discussing our vision. The final outcome was Swaying, our first novel.
