Chief Imagination Officer
Dan Cafaro is the founder and publisher of Atticus Books, a fiery multimedia press based in Madison, New Jersey (or wherever Dan is living at the moment). Dan is a rabble-rousing old soul with a penchant for satire and sun-dried tomatoes. Despite his eternal hunt for meticulous prose, he is an untrained metaphor grifter and frequent abuser—Strunk & White, take that—of the closed em dash. Atticus Review is his celestial firstborn (and she swears on a stack of City Lights pocket paperbacks that she will become a galactic hitchhiker when she grows up).
Katrina Gray lives in Nashville with the writer John Minichillo and their curly-headed lovechild. Her writing has appeared in JMWW, Necessary Fiction, Women Writers: A Zine, BLIP, The Northville Review, Emprise Review, and other places. She has a special fondness for overcast days, kalamata olives, magnolia blossoms, singer-songwriters, Twittering comics, and iced soy hazelnut lattes. She blogs in two places: the sometimes-literary Katrina Gray website, and the always-literary Fictionaut.
Libby O’Neill is the former managing editor of Atticus Books, where mostly she took Dan’s half-baked ideas and made them golden brown. She’d been with Atticus for three years, starting as a summer intern after earning her BA in English at the University of Dallas. She somehow managed to leave the press with her sanity intact and is now purportedly raising Hucks, Scouts and chicks (and if her husband gets his way, alpacas) somewhere in the backwoods of Maryland.
