David Lee


David describes himself as a "humble purveyor of fine accoutrements, contraptions of false perception and questionable relics" and is also writing this in the 3rd person.

He founded HCS Publishing in 2013 to support his then, teenage daughter and author JM Lee. He has insisted that HCS Publishing remain a "non-profit" publisher where the authors receive the financial benefits of their hard work. Most people think he's slightly mad but what do they know? ;)

Editor in Chief

Hi, my name is Jeanne Wilkins, and I am passionate about quality literature, especially of the speculative variety. I hold a BA from Queens University in Charlotte, NC, where I was accepted into Sigma Upsilon, a national writer’s fraternity. I have been published in a few small press literary magazines, including “The Fardleferd Herd” out of Elgin, IL. I served as a first reader, then an editor of Bookman Publishing out of Honolulu, HI, until moving to Virginia. Since then I have been a tutor of English and creative writing, and an independent editor. I have managed two bookstores, in Red Lodge, MT and Suffolk, VA.
