Kevin Holtsberry, the founder and editor of Collected Miscellany, works in the field of communications and public affairs.  He has been blogging since November of 2001 and started CM in 2003 after getting burned out on politics. He enjoys reading everything from literary fiction and classic literature to espionage, mystery, neo-noir and even the occasional sci-fi/fantasy.  He also reads non-fiction ranging from history and contemporary politics to theology and philosophy. He is particularly fond of short biographies.

Jeff Grim has been a reader all of his life.  He has had a particular interest in military history, any war at any time.  His fascination with military history has brought him to an interest in historical fiction where the history comes alive with fictitious heroes and villains.  Recently, Jeff has become interested in historical mysteries set in various time periods.
