Susan H. Roddey

South Carolina native S.H. Roddey has been writing for fun since she was a child and still enjoys building worlds across the speculative fiction spectrum filled with mystery and intrigue.  She brings to the literary world a unique blend of humor, emotion, and wild ideas filled with dark themes and strong characters. In her spare time, she offers professional book formatting services and writes romance as her imaginary friend, Siobhan Kinkade.

In addition to writing she is also a voracious reader, wannabe chef, and video game addict with two full-time jobs: administrative social media professional, and mom to a cat, a young twenty-something, and a pair of precocious youngsters with an affinity for computer keyboards. She also enjoys the perks of being married to her best friend and full-time muse.

Laurie Hilburn

editor, proofreader

Laurie Hilburn

Laurie Hilburn has been reading and writing for as long as she can remember. Some of her earliest memories are of staying up all night to read Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery (a distant relative) and penning the gripping tale of Detective Laura Scott searching for the missing cat figurine (her father still has the one-page story). Since then, she has gone on to flourish in English, Literature, and Creative Writing spaces. Most recently, she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature & Language and double minor in Creative Writing & Women’s Studies from Winthrop University in 2016. In the near future, she plans to pursue a Master of Arts and, eventually, earn her PhD to fulfill her lifelong dream of being referred to as Dr. Hilburn.

During and after school, she cultivated her penchant for correcting others through editing and proofreading. From working as an academic tutor to a creative prose editor to a professional resume editor to a journalistic copyeditor, she now has 4+ years of experience under her belt and is excited for more. In her free time, she continues to read and write, as well as play video games, take naps, and cuddle with her two cats. She lives with her best friend and artistic muse, in addition to way too much Wonder Woman paraphernalia.
