Happy July! We're hitting the road this week with an Inkubator debut from Carla Frechette and Marya Doery. We think you'll find it moderately challenging!
Carla works for a boarding school in the Litchfield Hills of Connecticut and enjoys all sorts of word games, including solving NPR's Sunday Puzzle with her colleagues. She has also spent many years working in the show horse field. When not puzzling, Carla reads, hikes, and runs, which keeps her sane.
Marya has worked as a stablehand, biology lab technician, physicist, and software developer. Currently, she splits her time between editing crossword puzzles and developing mobile apps. She also enjoys rock climbing, skiing, and snorkeling.
When you're done solving, check out Diary of a Crossword Fiend for a write-up and discussion, every Friday after an Inkubator puzzle is published. For general updates, follow us on Twitter at @InkubatorXWords, and visit our website. Thanks to all of our subscribers for your continuing support, feedback, and kindness!
Coming up next, on Thursday, July 8: Anne Rousseve plays our tune.
