Jennifer and Jessica Slee are identical twins who write together and separately. Jennifer has a degree in Archaeology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she was a recipient of the Willie Lavonsa Moore prize in creative non-fiction. Jessica studied English Literature and Creative Writing at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Both are collegiate intramural champions in the debatably competitive sport of paper-plane flying. As choral singers for over a decade, they have shared a stage with the Charlotte Symphony, the North Carolina Symphony, and as children performed briefly with the touring production of Godspell. They are working on their debut novel, a thriller that combines elements of speculative technology with historic settings and a uniquely horrific premise.
