Lycan Valley Editorial

M.J. SYDNEY ~ Owner, Editor-in-Chief

M. J. Sydney acquired LVP Publications in April 2017 and works full time as a freelance writer and editor. When she isn't hiding out in the office, you can find her roaming around in the Jeep--armed with a Canon and an Alice Cooper playlist--shooting anything that jumps in front of the camera lens. She works and lives with a vampire, a werewolf, a Mogwai, and various woodland creatures in the Pacific Northwest.

KEN MACGREGOR ~ Managing Editor, Anthologies/Collections

Ken MacGregor has written over 200 short stories, a (co-authored) novel, a novella, TV commercials, sketch comedy, a music video, and a zombie movie. When not writing, Ken drives the bookmobile for his local library. He lives with his family and three cats, one of whom is dead but they don't hold that against her.

NATALIE FRANK ~ Managing Editor, Novellas and Serials

Natalie Frank has a PhD in Clinical Psychology and has published on multiple topics in the behavioral science and other fields. She has served as a reviewer for academic publications and several large publishing houses. In addition to being a feature writer and editor for a number of sites, as well as an editor at Lycan Valley, Natalie is also a freelance writer/editor writing as Taye Carrol. She has a number of her own published stories under her metaphorical belt, including one in issue 32 of Weirdbook Magazine.

STACEY TURNER ~ Darkling Team Project Manager

Stacy Turner has edited ten anthologies, several of which have produced Stoker nominated stories, including Grim Mistresses. She's edited over a hundred novels and short stories for a variety of authors. Stacey lives in West Central Illinois with her husband where she is owned by cats. She loves editing because she's bossy, and while she wields a wicked red pen, she has yet to make an author cry. Not that such a thing would be her ultimate goal.

DARKLING ~ Lycan Valley's Graveyard Host

She's dark, she's cute, she's sassy, she's dead ... and she's haunting the valley one story at a time. Darkling, our not-quite-human graveyard host, comes to us from the Machleif Cemetery, which borders the parameter of Lycan Valley. An unfortunate accident brought her to the valley where she now spends most of her time telling stories to the Spirits of the Damned and anyone else brave enough to stick around and listen.

ROBERT NELSON ~ Project Editor

In another life, Robert Nelson wrote 75 ghostwritten novels for many different authors in the horror genre. Now, as Blaze McRob, he has added another five novels and has contributed to some 36 different collections and anthologies. He believes in giving back to the writing community and is always helping new and emerging authors. He and his wife, Terri DelCampo, lead a mainly writing life in Georgia, where the seasons are hot and hotter, making it easier to write about Hell.


The Lycan Valley Reaper is an undisclosed editorial team working to bring Death to the Valley with one unified voice. The Reaper likes soft organ music, long, moon-lit strolls through graveyards and enjoys chocolate eclairs.

CARL R JENNINGS ~ Lycan Valley Assistant

Carl the Werecoyote is Lycan Valley's all-purpose assistant. Carl does other things too but only when he's allowed out from the crawl space beneath the office...or when he escapes, which happens more frequently than we'd like.

DALE W GLASER ~ Webmaster

Dale W Glaser is an English major, a SF/F/H geek, and the author of dozens of speculative short stories. In the past, he has been a Dungeon Master, the editor of a campus satire magazine, and the kind of person who buys souvenirs from the Salem Witch Museum. He lives in Virginia with his wife, three children, and seven pets (and counting) of various species and origins.
