About M.J. Zellnik
A Shameless Plea

is the joint pen name of sister-brother writing team Miriam and Joe Zellnik. Miriam, based in Portland, OR, is an accomplished freelance writer who's been published in Marie Claire, Bust, and other local and national publications, as well as authoring numerous novelty titles for Running Press Publishing, Quirk Books, and others. Joe lives in New York City where he is a theatrical composer and graphic designer. His musicals have been performed at New York's Ensemble Studio Theater, Dodger Stages, Playwright's Horizons, and London's Bridewell Theater, among others, as well as touring the country. This series marks their first collaborative effort (well, since early childhood!)
