Editor Renee Duke grew up in Ontario/B.C., Canada and Berkshire, England. Due to a treacherous re-drawing of county lines while she was out of the country, her little English market town is now in Oxfordshire, but she’s still a Berkshire girl at heart.After qualifying as an Early Childhood Educator, she went on to work with children of all ages in a number of capacities, including a stint in Belize, Central America with World Peace and Development. These days she still does occasional interactive history units with 6- to12-year-olds at an after-school care centre but is otherwise retired and able to concentrate on writing.





Editor Victoria Chatham was born in Bristol, England, where she grew up in an area rife with the elegance of Regency architecture. This, along with the novels of Georgette Heyer, engendered in her an abiding interest in the period with its style and manners and is one where she feels most at home.  Apart from her writing, Victoria is an avid reader of anything that catches her interest, but especially Regency romance. She also teaches introductory creative writing. Her love of horses gets her away from her computer to volunteer at Spruce Meadows, a world class equestrian centre near Calgary, Alberta, where she currently lives.   http://victoriachatham.blogspot.ca/

Michelle Lee, Art Director

Michelle Lee is a cover artist for BWL Publishing Inc.   She is the artistic one; which is odd, given that even with a ruler she can’t draw a straight line.  But let her open up a graphics program, and watch out.  Creating graphics is a labor of love.  As much as she may complain about creating covers for certain genres - there is a simple joy in creating a face for a story, which is what a cover does.  With her designs, she hopes to provide the wrapping for the gift an author creates.
