Cate Gardner spends her days drawing pinstripes on strangers' suits and her evenings cursing stain removers. One day she hopes to board a train and find it populated with strange men in pinstripe suits (trilby optional), though she suspects that is the last anyone will see of her. In the meantime, her writing imp promises to continue to crack open her skull daily and to unhook the twisted words floating within. The things you'll find in her little book have appeared in a variety of curious places including Fantasy Magazine, Necrotic Tissue, and Three Crow Press. Others have emerged from that place labelled nowhere.

Cate is the author of the forthcoming collection, Strange Men in Pinstripe Suits and Other Curious Things.
