Chris teaches high school English and enjoys making music in his spare time. In the early days of podcasting, Chris produced an anthology horror fiction podcast called The Late Late Show. Yes, one of Alex’s stories was featured on an episode . . . it was the start of a beautiful friendship.


Sara Warren

Sara Warren is the brilliant artist behind the Ostium logo, transcript covers and illustrations.

Sara, known to some by her alias Captain Sunshine, has been dabbling in art since she was a wee bairn. She is a fan or horror, video games and kick-ass women and these themes run through much of her work. When not illustrating for projects and fun, she can often been found playing video games, immersed in a book or venturing out of doors for camping and hiking. She’s also got a soft spot for critters, especially her 13 lbs tomcat. Check out Sara’s Facebook art page.
