Dr. Sørina Higgins
Editor-in-Chief, Grand High Grammaryean
Sørina is the intrepid (some may say tyrannical) helmswoman who keeps the Press going and the team on its tracks, even when there are tempests or dragons. She’s also a writer, English teacher, modernist, Inklings scholar, yoga practitioner, cat lover, ballroom dancer, podcaster, homesteader, and definitely not a real-life magician.
Managing Editor, Marketing Director, and Superhero of the Many Hats
Kira is Sørina’s right-hand-woman, keeping the Press organized and on schedule. She is the creative mind behind all our marketing and social media as well as the Coordinator of Bookflow who performs magic with numbers, spreadsheets, and project apps. She’s also a fantasy author, linguist, archer, and horseback rider.
Audio Book Director and Mad Violinist
Christopher’s superpower is turning a text into the most gorgeous audio performance by finding the best readers for each work, directing audio recordings, and editing the files into final audio books. He is also one of our most attentive editors, as well as a body worker, musician, brewer, Aikido-ka, and believer in fairies.
Communications Assistant and Illusionist of Arts
Gio is the matchmaker between authors and artists to make sure our books look their best, and she’s also the one who implements the team’s design ideas into the website and books. She is a PhD candidate in Foreign Letters and Translation at University of São Paulo and a literary translator who also runs a small rooster sanctuary.
Assistant Editor and Sherbet of Allah
Sarah is in charge of printing and distribution, which means she is the one who actually gets books into people’s houses. She is also a scholar who edits many of our manuscripts, works with authors, bakes pies, sings opera, and raises a household of lively and intelligent children at the same time.
Nick is a YouTuber and SilmFilm writer who can turn anything into a video, even without footage. He also manages Author Circles and its members single-handedly while rocking babies with the other hand.
James “I can build that” Tauber
Digital Publishing Manager and Blue Wizard
James could build anything if he had the time, and he is the father of our multi-purpose platform Blackberry. He’s a polymath of a real-life wizard with degrees and skills in computers, technology, programming, web development, data science, linguistics, philology, the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, educational research methodology, music theory, composition, wine tasting, and more.
