Jeanne Wilkins

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.

Nicole Ordway



Nicole obtained a BA in English from Christopher Newport University in 2009. While studying she completed freelance editing work as well as editing a novel for Mairi Campbell. She prefers to read fiction, and loves sci-fi and fantasy in particular, but will read anything with a compelling story. Her short story, “Selkie of the Shoals,” was featured in Panglossian Productions’s “Blackout: Theatre in the Dark” and her debut novel, Hollow Thunder, was published under HCS Publishing in the fall of 2013.
