Sonia Patel


Sonia Patel writes out of her experience as a first-generation Indian immigrant cradled in the Hawaiian indigenous culture, an experience lushly and brilliantly explored in her debut novel. As a child and adolescent psychiatrist, Patel trained at Stanford University and the University of Hawaii, and has spent over ten years providing individual and family psychotherapy to adolescent girls and their families.

Christopher Cardinale


Christopher Cardinale had a rootless upbringing following his educator parents through five states from Ohio to New Mexico. Independently, he continued his nomadic life in Guatamala and Mexico, finally settling in Brooklyn, New York. Inspired by Mexican muralism and anarchist punk collectives, Christopher works within marginally defined communities, painting murals whose subjects include the anti-globalization and anti-war movements. His large-scale murals can be viewed in New York, Italy, Greece and Mexico.

Publishing credits include a story in the Wobblies, a graphic history of industrial workers of the world; extensive features in the legendary WW3 Illustrated Magazine; and his riveting depiction of Hurricane Katrina’s aftermath in New Orleans became the first cover story comic in Punk Planet’s history. He is currently working on a graphic novel celebrating his passion for cycling, which includes poignant graphic memorials about those who’ve been killed by cars while biking.
