Staff members share insights into their personal and professional lives.
What is your creative focus?
My creative focus is very illustrative. I love vector art and using my ipad and pen to draw. I like to draw things that move me, as do most artists. The main subjects that have been piquing my interest are nature, people, animals, climate change, and plastic pollution.
What kind of submissions grab your attention?
I am looking for originality. Personally, I am a sucker for a good Sci-Fi or Fantasy. I want to see submissions that feel true to the author and can translate well to the readers.
What makes you smile?
Sunsets—something that is easily passed as just another part of the day. Sunsets are so beautiful and calming. My cat and two dogs also make me smile.
What is your favorite book?
Black Leopard Red Wolf by Marlon James. It is a fantasy book that came out this year, and I could not put it down.
