Meet the Ghouls

Monster-SuzanneSuzanne Purkis

From a very young age, Suzanne knew she wasn’t cut out for a normal life. A freelance writer and editor by day, and a child/dog/husband wrangler by night, she learned to read when she was three and wrote her first short story at the age of five. When she can catch a little break from the chaos, Suzanne is working on her second dystopian novel. She blogs at Apoplectic Apostrophes. You can also find her at Lucid Editing, her professional website, and over on Facebook and Twitter.

Monster-TonyTony Lovell

Hailing from a small suburban area in Central Alabama, Tony is a Phoenix, and just completed and earned his Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. In his downtime, Tony writes everything he can imagine, acts in community-theatre productions around Birmingham, burns Yankee Candle candles, sings off-key to his favorite music, and spends as much time as he can with his husband and five fur-babies. He blogs at Bedbug’s Writing, tweets as @bedbugcouture, and can also be found on Facebook.


Jen Brunett
Social Media Ghoul

A small town girl at heart, Jen comes to us by way of the music industry, where she worked in radio and as a conceptual marketing writer for artists like the White Stripes. Nowadays, Jen lives in Western New York, where she focuses on raising kids, conducting kitchen food experiments, healing people through alternative medicine, and reading. In her spare time, Jen writes. She’s even published a book! It’s called Finding Your Spirit: A Mom’s Guide to the Universe. She blogs at Finding Spirit and tweets as @JenBrunett.

MonsterJenniferJennifer Greenwood
Submissions Editor

Although she now makes her home in the wilds of Canada, Jennifer was born in an English manor house—and she brings that dichotomous nature to everything she does, including her lifelong work as a painter, poet, writer, and reader. Jennifer has written two novels and countless poems. These days, painting takes up most of her time, as she explores her dichotomous nature on canvas. As our submissions editor, Jennifer will peruse your submissions (both verbal and visual) with her discerning eye.


Sue Archer
Boot Camp Editor and Grammar Corner Columnist

Sue loves reading stories so much that the house could burn down around her while she was nose-deep in a book and she wouldn’t notice. It’s a good thing she’s immortal. Sue uses her penetrating gaze to freeze manuscript errors in their tracks. She is a wordsmith and a freelance editor who writes communication tips with a creative twist at her blog Doorway Between Worlds. You can also hunt her down on Twitter.

MonsterPatrickPatrick Riegert

Halfway through his fourth decade, Patrick gave up his poorly-feigned pretence of normalcy to take up the mantle of vagabond, a Honda Shadow his grumbling liberator. He blogs as the Wayward Mind; edits and experiments with designing tabletop RPGs; and writes fiction/creative nonfiction from wheresover he happens to find himself: cozily cocooned within his hammock-tent, sprawled gratefully on a stranger’s couch, or sipping a beer in a quiet corner of a dusty roadside tavern. He roams Twitter as @WaywardMind.

    Good day! I could have sworn I’ve visited this website before but after browsing through many of the posts I realized it’s new to
    me. Anyhow, I’m certainly pleased I found
    it and I’ll be bookmarking it and checking back frequently!

    Hello, I was still wondering if I might still get the winner’s badge for Challenge #83? I haven’t been able to add it to my post, could I have some help please?
