David T. Neal
Publisher, Editor-in-Chief firstname.lastname@example.org
Dave has worked as an editor for over 20 years, including a decade at the University of Chicago Press. He has written fiction for most of his life, with a particular fondness for Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, J.D. Salinger, Michael Moorcock, Flannery O’Connor, Shirley Jackson and C.M. Kornbluth.
He’s published the hipster-hounding werewolf novel, SAAMAANTHAA (2011), the Lovecraftian horror-thriller, CHOSEN (2012), the cheeky-chic vampire novel, SUCKAGE (2013), the creature-feature novellas, RELICT (2013) and SUMMERVILLE (2013), and the science fiction short story collection, SINGULARITIES (2015).
His short stories have appeared in Albedo 1, Ireland’s premier fantasy and science fiction magazine, and he won second place in their Aeon Award in 2008 for his short story, “Aegis.” He was also in the Thunder on the Battlefield: Swords anthology (2013) for his short story, “The Wolf and the Crow.”
Dave loves horror movies, Westerns, Venetian masks (and Venice, in general). He adores New Orleans and Southern Gothic in particular. Where music is concerned, he’s a human jukebox, and knows or can talk about almost any musical genre (excepting Country music, which he does not like). Dave loves to cook, and often sneaks in details of fine cuisine into his fiction, particularly when he’s writing while hungry, and he does great Mark Hamill and Heath Ledger Joker impressions.
Christine M. Scott
Publisher, Creative Director email@example.com
Hearty of laugh and quick of wit, Christine has been a professional graphic designer/website developer & brand consultant for over 20 years. She is an ardent book designer, intent on creating works that support the vision of the author, create a pleasing yet unobtrusive experience for the reader, and both refer to and expand upon the methods of the art of book making.
Christine is a visual artist and uses found objects, collage, and assemblage to craft a world-within-a-world that communicates a playfully unnerving take on the contradictions, absurdity, and strangeness of postmodern American life.
A reader of all genre fiction, she has a particular fondness for ghosts and witches—send any good ghost stories (real or fictional) her way. Raised on Nancy Drew, the Dana Girls and Beverly Gray, she savors a well-crafted mystery.
Her interests include art and philosophy of art, decorative arts, architecture, costume design, paranormal studies, history and jewelry making. She loves clever turns of phrases, libraries, lipstick and filet mignon, cooked rare. She is also known as “The Queen of Portents.” She takes her coffee Blonde.
Christine was recently selected as a contributor to the Game of Thrones: The Compendium. View the book and her work here…
