Over 20 years ago Briana Lawrence and Jessica Walsh (Snow) were two fanfiction-writing ladies who geeked out over Gundam Wing and Resident Evil. Now? They’re still geeks and still have their fandoms, but they’re also a cosplaying married couple who write books, discuss the importance of representation, and do their best to keep their three butt-head cats in line. (They’re failing. Send help.)
Briana has had a number of publications for various pop culture websites, including Funimation, SyFy Wire, Teen Vogue, The Mary Sue, and more. She currently works as the Senior Features Editor at Crunchyroll where she edits a team of phenomenal writers and writes articles that take a deep dive into anime. When she’s not trying to tell you why you need to marathon “SK8 the Infinity,” she’s working on her magical girl book series, “magnifiqueNOIR.” She also just signed her first two-book deal with Andrews McMeel Publishing.
Snow is also a writer and is hard at work on the third book in the couple’s “Hunters” urban fantasy series now that she’s launched her horror anthology Little Creepers. She’s also had her horror stories read on various podcasts such as “Ghoul Intentions” and the always spine-tingling Mr. Creepy Pasta. Currently, she runs the queer review blog, “Well, Are They?” where she takes a look at various forms of LGBTQ+ content. The blog also hosts Briana’s “Queer Manga Book Club.” When Snow’s not writing, you can catch her (potentially swearing) at her sewing machine, working on various craft projects and cosplay where she designs variations of her and Briana’s favorite characters. Don’t be surprised if you see one of them sporting a “Super Mario Brothers” dress or “Toy Story” inspired ball gown.
When going to conventions, Briana and Snow always bring their best. You can get lost in their books—or heck—you can come by for a selfie and fun conversations about cosplay, anime, ships, or video games. (Use caution: if you start a conversation about Supergiant Games’ “Hades” they may never let you leave!)
