Suspect: Brianna Van Dyke (Editor for Ruminate magazine)

Apprehended: while editing Ruminate's Issue 12
“Clue” to favorite writing spot: in bed with a hot cup of tea and a stack of inspiring books
Known to be involved with writing: a current essay in response to walking labyrinths at monasteries throughout Colorado.
Last seen autographing: the latest issue of Ruminate’s Issue 11: Passages
Spotted recently: thanking Bret Lett for judging the recent Ruminate Short Story Prize
Often seen: making lists of possible themes for upcoming magazine issues (while also trying to occupy a rambunctious three-year-old)
Recently found enjoying a query letter: that revealed a writer who read the submission guidelines and the magazine before submitting

Wishes more freelance writers: would read the submission guidelines
Overuses this written word: so
