Contributors to the Thoughts

Jeremy DeFatta

Jeremy is a native of Mississippi and resident of Hattiesburg, where he is still trying to figure out what to do next a year and a half out of his MA in 20th Century American Literature. Though a lover of many aspects of Nerd Culture, his contributions to this blog will mostly fall under the umbrella of American and British comics and comics writers, a primary focus of his master’s thesis. He welcomes open, civil discussion on the points he raises in his posts. Feel free to follow his sometimes not-so-nice thoughts on Twitter @quaintjeremy.


Candice Mizell

One day we’ll have a goat, my daughter assures me. My son reminds me that he’ll soon be old enough to drive. So, you see, I’ve become adept at the smile and nod. Occasionally I write. Sometimes I even finish a project, but mostly… well, I live and dream.


Phil McNelly

Hey, Listen!


Tim Tanner

I like writing; it is fun. I have a big, fat, black cat named Tuna who is currently yelling at me at any point in time you are reading this. I like hot teas and sometimes I add honey. Beer is good, but whiskey brings the good feelings on faster. Sometimes, when I’m real nice, people let me be in their movies. I stay away from Facebook, but you can check out my IMDB page to see if I can manage to grab some okay upcoming roles.
