Emily Gerren

Editor


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.

Description

WebsiteButton-AuthorWebsite2 WebsiteButton-Facebook WebsiteButton-Twitter
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.

Erin deWard

Voice Actor

PUBLISHER’S NOTE: Erin deWard is a voice actor who produces audiobooks for Audible.com.

I have been studying acting and performing since 1973 (gack, can it really be that long?). Since then, I have gone to college and lived the actor-y life of a 20 something in NYC (cocktail waitress, temp, and lots of macaroni and cheese), travelled, worked with individuals with developmental disabilities, married, renovated my house (talk about drama), raised 2 children, learned to walk more than one dog at a time, perfected my pancakes, and braved Disney World.

I have, in the past few years, become a Shakespeare geek. I take class with Red Bull and Shakespeare and Company whenever I can. Most recently I had the pleasure of working on clowning in Shakespeare with Zach Fine and Andy Grotelueschen from Fiasco Theater.

In 2010, I was lucky enough to join The Strange Bedfellows, a company of actors who perform Shakespeare in all of his bawdy, violent, funny, and tragic glory. The Bedfellows strive to make their audiences forget about that horrible experience they had in high school English class reading Willie. Instead of treating Shakespeare as some delicate, acquired taste, the Bedfellows romp, clown, fight with passion, and work to communicate the human-ness in all of Shakespeare’s characters.

After my stick figure comic series “The Adventures of The Unstoppable” failed to garner any fans, I accepted that drawing would never be my superpower. I also accepted that I was not, after all, The Unstoppable. Twelve-year-old me never forgot the thrill of adventure, however, and the mystery of heroes, powers, and a bad guy who maybe is only bad because he feels stuck. Or maybe he’s just bad, and that’s interesting, too.

My writing has taken me around the worlds of my brain, and also around a lot of restaurants. After years of being the pickiest eater in the south, I somehow got a stint as a city blogger and food columnist, which taught me that people are too obsessed with queso and not excited enough about chicken noodle soup. I’ve since said goodbye to journalistic writing and hello to creative writing, which, after all, is what I’ve always done.

I currently live in Florida, where I complain about the humidity but never make any plans to move. My husband and I have two cats (only two), who are excellent sounding boards for ideas.

Nobody’s secrets are safe.

At first, it was the voices outside her window. “She is one of them….”

Second came the hallucinations: an unfamiliar symbol, floating on the precipice of her thoughts. And the letters: “E-N” dance around in her head, more annoying than unsettling.

Third came the abilities: speed, dexterity, insane reflexes. All her life she’d been clumsy, but no more.

Fourth came the Academy: covert government operation, physically advanced soldiers raised apart from society for a single purpose, telekinesis, telepathic hive-minded clones.

Last came the Grifters, but they weren’t really last–they’d been there since the very beginning of 18-year-old Ella Keppler’s life.

It isn’t unusual that Grifters are stalking Ella. What’s unusual is how clever these creatures are becoming. The Academy won’t admit it… until a completely innocent, perfectly normal civilian–Ella’s best friend–is kidnapped by the supposedly unintelligent Grifters.

Joe enters the writing world after a 25-year law enforcement career in the city of Newark, NJ. He’s written for several online publications, including over thirty profiles of high-achieving women from around the world for About.com.

He has an inexplicable curiosity about Texas noir, and set two short stories in the southeast corner of the state between Laredo and Corpus Christi. Many of the awful things his characters inflict on one another are based on real events from his former career. The sarcasm is in his bones.

Joe lives in New Jersey but enjoys learning about other cultures and perspectives. He’s fascinated by human motivation, and doesn’t believe much happens by accident. He often listens to movie soundtracks when writing to help with visualization.
