The staff

Publisher: Stacey Welsh

Learning to read at the age of four, while on holiday going across the Nullarbor Desert in Australia, Stacey found a love of reading, but it wasn’t until she was almost 30 that she discovered her love of writing. One night’s dream and 18 months of work later and she was Self-published with her first book Scarlett Blade: The Bandit Queen hitting the shelves of her local bookstore, and also Amazon.com and several other reputable websites. She is currently working on a few other projects which she hopes to have published soon through Kindle, as well as contributing to Far Horizons

Kimberly Nugent is a self-admitted geek, of gaming, grammar, and crafting. She lives in Northern California with her two kids, two pets, and engineer husband. Kimberly caught the sci-fi bug at an early age thanks to her grandfather handing her a copy of The Hobbit, and a librarian who insisted she check out Dragonsong. Kimberly has been with Far Horizons as “extra editor” since December and enjoys torturing the authors with writing prompts. You can find her online on Twitter at @BlueTeaEditing.

Art & Production: Ana Marija Meshkova

Ana

From a young age, Ana Marija has been fascinated by the written word, reading anything she could get her hands on, from old classics, to newer books. Feeling the need to release the characters from her head, at the age of 16 she turned to creating that which occupies a large portion of her life. Her imagination making use of everything around her, she writes regularly for Far Horizons magazine, was one of the authors contributing to the Tied in Pink anthology for breast cancer, and hopes one day to publish her own books. She also regularly dabbles in translating from English to Macedonian and reverse, and has recently started teaching herself the finer points of making magazine layouts.

Proofreading & Production: Valery Riddle

Valery

Having written her first poem at 8 and her first short story at 12, Valery Riddle has come a long way from an amateur to a self-taught writer as she was trying to find herself in the one talent that really mattered. Between the understanding that small scribbles on the paper might mean something more than simple everyday words and the hope that she has something to contribute, the writer dared to go deeper into the shadows of human weaknesses and desires to find the unquenched well of subjects. Be it an innocent human error behind some drastic action or frightful hidden motives in everyday life, Valery sets on a journey to put her characters in such circumstances that would reveal it all. Just another face in the crowd, she watches people around her as a silent observer to find new plots to explore, while her true inspiration blooms in the quietness of nature, away from noisy cars and smoky cities, on seashores under the ever-changing sky. To follow her own words from the works that she herself calls “verses-in-prose”:

“People crave bread and circuses, and I crave to see those people. I will let them outrun me to see them better. However close the sunset is, the sun will always remain in the sky and my shade will not disappear. I will not walk off my path to become closer to people. And I know that when I am asked for an explanation I shall not give it”.

  1. There’s a typo’ in the blurb for Forever Hungry — the first sentence reads “Do like brains?” The second sentence continues the inquiry, “Do you like munching on their gooey goodness…” etc., etc. I’m sure the first sentence was suppose to say, “Do you like brains?” Later in the paragraph there’s even sort of a reprise of the opening question, “Do you, in fact, like Braaaains!?” which contains the word “you”, as the first sentence probably should. It all looks good other than that, though!
    (Sorry — I didn’t see where else to put this.)
