Browse our reviews, learn more about the authors, and meet our talented review team. If you would like to contribute a review, please read our Reviewer's Guidelines. If you are an author, publicist or publisher and would like us to review a book, read Getting Reviewed.

Susan Wittig Albert Editor SuperNova Susan Wittig Albert, Coordinating Editor: In 1985, I left my career as a university professor and administrator and began working fulltime as a novelist and freelance writer.

Mary Jo Doig Editor SuperStar Mary Jo Doig, Editor: I have found so many ways to nurture my reader's/writer's soul in SCN since joining in 2001. When I reflect about the years past, I think of myself as "SCN Homegrown," from beginning to shyly and not confidently share some of my stories in w-ecircles 2 and 9, to accepting facilitator-ship of the wonderful group of women in w-ecircle 7 in 2003 a few years later. Soon after, I was delighted to accept the editorship of Story Circle Journal's "True Words From Real Women." —read more...

Barbara Heming Editor Barbara Heming, Distribution Editor: Ever since she learned to read, Barbara Heming has been a voracious reader. For her a snow day was a gift of time to journey into the worlds sandwiched between the covers of a book. She pursued a Ph.D. in Hispanic Languages and Literature which opened doors into literature of other cultures. After moving to a remote canyon in northern New Mexico a few years ago, she turned her attention to her lifelong dream of writing fiction and has now completed a number of short stories and her first novel. —read more...

Linda Hoye Editor Star Linda Hoye, Editor: I'm a Business Analyst, writer, adoptee, bibliophile, and somewhat-fanatical grandma. I recently published my memoir, Two Hearts: An Adoptee's Journey Through Grief to Gratitude (2012), and am a contributor to Adoption Voices Magazine. I recently retired from corporate life and, along with my husband and our doted-upon Yorkshire Terrier, returned to my Canadian home land where I'm keeping busy in my garden, my kitchen, and at my writer's desk. You can connect with me on my blog, A Slice of Life Writing. —read more...

Judy M. Miller Editor StarBurst Judy M. Miller, Editor: Seven years ago I took my husband's advice and began my writing career. It was in my first writing classes that I came across Story Circle Network. I was drawn to the idea of women nurturing women in their quest to write and share their stories. I joined SCN soon after and volunteered to become one of the SCBR editors. —read more...

Susan Schoch Editor SuperStar Susan Schoch, Editor: Susan Schoch is a Colorado member of our editorial team. About herself, she says, "I'm a freelance writer and editor, specializing in memoir and personal history, and recently completed a biography of two revered ceramic artists, titled The Clay Connection: Jim and Nan McKinnell.

Paula Stallings Yost Editor Paula Stallings Yost, Editor: After a twenty-five-year career in public relations and journalism in Dallas, I returned to my roots in the piney woods of East Texas, working for a while as lifestyles editor for a small-town daily newspaper.
