Editor and Acquisitions Reader
Jay Barlow (They/Them) graduated with a Masters in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University. They spend most of their time teaching their two rescue pups new tricks and smothering them in kisses, much to the dog’s chagrin. They love fantasy/sci-fi, romance, comics, and action adventure movies. When not weeping over fanfiction, they can be found serenading passersby with an out of tune bass guitar. They currently reside in Tennessee, with all the soul food and peach cobbler they can eat.
