Beth Fantaskey is the author of Jekel Loves Hyde and Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Darkside. She is a college professor who has a fear of public speaking, although she teaches it. Her favorite hobby is travelling the world - but her biggest fear is flying. She has two 5-year-old kids - who AREN'T twins. She's been fired once, from a job as a bookstore clerk. She believes her best educational experience was doing research in India on the Dalit (untouchable) struggle for human rights. Beth suffers from mild ichthyphobia (fear of fish). She doesn't bother trying to overcome that one!
