Terri Favro’s regrets in life include knocking out her brother with a ballpeen hammer and losing last year’s Deathmatch semi-final. After her near-lifeless body was dragged from the arena, she was shortlisted for the CBC Literary Prizes and CZP Rannu Spec Fiction competitions. Terri enjoys comic books, classic cocktails, the obituaries of the B list wrestlers of her childhood, and blogging at terrifavro.ca. She is the author of The Proxy Bride and Waiting for Mario Puzo.
