Managing Editor

Rebecca Haven was born and raised in St. Paul, MN. After spending six years in Cleveland, OH, she realized the Twin Cities isn't so bad-the rivers in the Twin Cities don't catch fire. Rebecca lives in Minneapolis, MN with her un-creatively named cat, kitty and whatever friend ends up on the couch for the night. Rebecca has been published in Haute Dish, Double Dare Press, STC-TC and The Metropolitan. Someday she hopes to actually get paid to write.
