Stacy Peters-Walters

Nonfiction Editorial Assistant

Stacy is a student at Dakota State University studying elementary, special and gifted education and computer graphics. She loves to write, but hates structured guidelines of how to write, which is why she chose not to become an English teacher. She writes mainly poetry, but is trying her hand at short stories. She plays both the clarinet and the saxophone, in which she finds spiritual release when writing doesn't seem to work. She also loves playing on the Internet and creating two- and three-dimensional art with computer graphics programs.

Linda Hampton Schiffer

Fiction Editor

I am primarily a visual artist but have been writing for many years. I am a quilter and have been doing more and more "art" quilting in recent years. I am also the coauthor of three books on foundation piecing/quilting. I am happy to be able to combine my love of fibers with my love of words in my current "job" as quilt author. :-)

I live in Columbia, Maryland with my beloved husband, Skip (an astronomer) and my two children, Eva (15) and Hugh (12). We also have four cats and three birds (the latter keep the former happily entertained from time to time). :)
