Ever since I was able to read, I’ve had a book (or a comic book in the early days) in my hands or on my person. I grew up in a non-digital age, in a home with one telephone that everyone shared, one television that no one watched, and in which movies were a luxury. Aside from radio theatre, books were my best non-human friends.

My love of reading never died. When I was 8 years old, I drew my first series of comic books. They were terrible, but I still love them. To me, they represent the moment the wise-old-man inside my little boy’s head finally made me aware that I loved to create.

As it turned out, I enjoyed writing much more than I enjoyed drawing, but I’ve spent most of my life doing some form of creative work. And when not, I’ve worked some boring jobs in very creative ways.

To this day, I love to write and to share my creations with others. I’m the guy who will watch a good movie twenty more times, if it means I get to introduce it to someone else and participate in their joy of discovering something entertaining or valuable. I can’t be quite so intimately participatory with my own writing, but I do love to know that I’ve brightened someone’s day, made them think, feel or—at the very least—provided them with a welcome distraction for a while.

The Reader….

My love of reading started early, before I can remember, but my obsession began with R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps books. In my teens, I graduated to Clive Barker, to my mom’s dismay. One year, a copy of his Books of Blood was all I wanted for Christmas. Though my mom may not have agreed with my preferences, she always accepted me for who I was, and encouraged me to be that person. She saw me through my brief Anne Rice Interview with a Vampire and Queen of the Damned phase, my Stephen King’s Dark Tower phase, and my Terry Goodkind’s Sword of Truth phase. (And the trilogy that shall not be named, the one with sparkly vamps. What? It was a phase!) It shouldn’t have come as any surprise that I’d write a few stories of my own someday. Speaking of which….

The Writer….

In March 2013, my youngest daughter was born. I’d worked full-time jobs while my older two children stayed with a sitter, but decided to stay home with the last one. With much more time on my hands than I’d expected, I took an online writing class, out of which a whole new world opened up for me. At the encouragement of our instructor, I started a blog and started tweeting. Within months, I’d found lots of new connections, people who were also pursuing this writing thing. Within a year or so, I’d started publishing my own short works.

Now, four years later, I’ve finally nailed down my voice and style. I love stories with paranormal elements, especially those that relate to the afterlife or alternate biblical histories, the darker the better. I also have a soft spot for romance, thanks to Grandma.

The Editor….

In 2014, I eased into editing. A critique group made its way onto my priority list. If a writer buddy needed a beta read, I jumped at the chance to apply a critical eye as well as positive reinforcement to the task. With every project I worked on, whether writing or offering constructive criticism, I aimed to improve my craft as I helped my fellow author. Becoming an editor wasn’t my goal, but as I learned more about the mechanics of writing, a natural evolution occurred. My editing skills grew at a much more rapid pace than my writing skills did.

Since 2014, I’ve edited countless anthologies, novels, and independent short works from various authors. I wish I had counted. That number would be pretty handy right about now. My primary focus is on speculative fiction, but I’m also interested in women’s fiction and romance.

I love sharing stories with the world. On any given day, that might mean editing a brilliant manuscript, writing my own books, or shamelessly throwing my favorite published novels in a friend’s general direction.

My editing career kicked off with an internship at a literary agency, where my favorite projects always involved realizing the full potential of client manuscripts. I specialize in young adult of all flavors, fantasy, and science fiction.

When not editing, I enjoy sewing, photography, ice skating, and hanging out with a very noisy cockatiel.

Briana Hertzog graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a BFA in Communication Arts. Since graduation, she has worked as a freelance illustrator and fine artist. She draws most of her inspiration from the natural world around her but loves the freedom she has as an artist and storyteller to mold it and manipulate it into any direction she pleases.

She has a strong love for problem solving and views each image she creates as a visual metaphor for depicting its accompanying text in the best way possible. She sees each illustration as a personal challenge and a means of improvement, learning and growth.
