She has co-authored a collection of prose collaborations with David Surface called The Secret Life of Gods.

David Surface’s stories and essays have been published in North American Review, Fiction, DoubleTake, Crazyhorse, Cortland Review, Taitlin’s Tower, Supernatural Tales, and Shadows and Tall Trees. He has twice been nominated for the Pushcart Prize in Fiction, was the recipient of a 2008 Fellowship in Creative Nonfiction from the New York Foundation for the Arts, and was one of six artists statewide nominated for the NYFA Prize. He is the founder and director of the Veterans Writing Workshop that runs free programs for U.S. veterans in the NYC area and is also founder of the FEGS Writing Project that provides workshops for adults living with mental illness and substance abuse.

Writer Gay Partington Terry

Gay Partington Terry is a Manx insomniac who grew up in northern Appalachia and now lives in Harlem. As a teenager, she assisted her father in his magic act and since then has worked as a waitress, factory worker, and welfare worker; catalogued tribal arts for Sotheby’s; volunteered in Margaret Mead’s office before she died; and taught tai chi and yoga. She has had poetry and short stories published in e-zines, fantasy magazines, and anthologies and wrote screenplays for “The Toxic Avenger” II and III. She has four grandchildren and is watched over by the ghost of a loyal Australian Shepherd. At heart, she thinks of herself as a slacker who enjoys teaching her grandkids “weird stuff.”
