Without the help of this group, we couldn’t do what we do.

Michael B. Fee

Michael B. Fee, painter
Fee created the Things They Buried cover painting, Cenotaph, which interprets a scene from the novel, including the three main characters and the ominous desalinization plant, as well as Bettel Hand, depicting elements from They Eat Their Own. He is one of Amanda and Michael’s favorite artists; as soon as they realized their story was becoming a novel, there was no question of who wither wanted as cover artist. Fee has shown his paintings everywhere from New Orleans to San Diego. (michaelbfee.com)

Emily Stansell

Emily Stansell, photographer
Emily is a fantastic photographer and queen of kitsch who turns everything she does into art. Her family can often be found modeling detailed costumes in curious settings, and her home looks like it popped straight out of the 1970s. In only one-hundred photos, she managed to drag at least ten good ones out of Amanda and Michael. (instagram.com/pinkylee55)
