Meet the Mudditors
"Just like to say that one of the reasons I choose to send things to MuddyUm among others, is all the great support and suggestions from editors like you. It teaches me a lot about my craft."

Writer and Editor. Psychotherapist in my spare time. Funny whenever I can be, serious when I lean so far left I nearly fall over.
AKA BOFace, AKA Baskerville Old Face, AKA Baskerville, AKA Quasimodo, AKA PaulHoss. I change my name like I change my t-shirt because why not?
If I leave a lot of asterisks it's because I care.
Now* just* look at that face. Even I would trust me!
All time Medium Top Writer in Accordions. I write. I have always written. I play accordion. I have an extraordinary ability to be fascinated by things. People I trust tell me I am funny.

Rachael loves living on the North Shore of Lake Superior in Minnesota, breathing in the beauty, and writing humor that causes readers to laugh until they can't breathe. Cycling, sustainable living, yoga, hiking, and phone-photography are a handful of her hobbies. Rachael is a no-makeup, lots-of-nonsense kind of human. She's passionate about the health of the planet and the next generation of all living things - except jerks. They can go.
Toni Crowe is a skilled storyteller who escaped corporate America to pursue her dream of writing whatever she wanted, whenever she chose. She is an award-winning multi-book author. Being an introverted degreed engineer who forced herself to become an executive extrovert gives Toni a unique variegated world-view. Toni takes real-life lessons and presents them in a way readers will not forget. Her dark humor shines like flickering candlelight in the night. Humor is one of her most persuasive tools.
Holly J. See

I enjoy reading, writing song parodies, interacting with my poodle, and dancing around the house to “Sing” — Pentatonix & “Rock ’N Roll Soul” — Grand Funk
Anu Anniah lives in Bangalore, India. Laughing is her favorite hobby. It takes up most of her day.
After a billion years in corporate, she suddenly chucked it all to spend time with her teen. The jury is out on whether the teen actually wanted this change. Meanwhile, Anu discovered she had much to say about lots of things. Since no one listened, she began to write. She published a book while no one was looking. No one is looking even now.

Stephanie Wilson was having a fine life in Northern Virginia--coaching, hiking, drawing, waving goodbye to her kids as they moved off into the world—but then she got abducted by aliens. Now she lives in some place called MuddyUm, where she writes, laughs, edits, and deals with the extraterrestrials listed above. It’s fun. It's on a boat of some sort. She misses Earth.
