Author: Denny Angelle George Kovacik and Lily Angelle

Denny Angelle has been a veteran writer for decades with nothing more to show for it than bylines in Boys' Life, Goldmine, American Pop and the Houston Chronicle among others. Former radio reporter George Kovacik worships the Boss and fronts his own band, Orange Is In. Rookie writer Lily Angelle has cooler credits than her elders, as her pieces appear regularly on blogs such as Mxdwn, TG Daily, Talk Nerdy 2 Me and the Austin-based Do512.
