Lycan Valley Editorial

MJAE SYDNEY ~ Owner, Editor-in-Chief

MJae 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.

CHRISTINE MORGAN ~ Managing Editor, Novellas & Novels

Christine Morgan was recently dubbed "the Martha Stewart of extreme horror" after appearing on the Bizzong podcast, for her hobbies of weird baking and kooky crafts as well as writing. The author of works as varied as Spermjackers From Hell, The Raven’s Table, Dawn of the Living-Impaired and Other Messed-Up Zombie Stories, Murder Girls, and White Death, she’s especially honored to be allowed to play with Edward Lee’s toys and wrote a sequel to his Lucifer’s Lottery called Lakehouse Infernal, which came out in 2019. A long-time contributor to The Horror Fiction Review, she also beta-reads, has edited a few anthologies, and takes on various other word-related gigs as opportunity presents. 

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 lived in West Central Illinois with her husband where she was owned by cats. She loved editing because she was bossy, and while she wielded a wicked red pen, she never made an author cry. Not that such a thing would have been her ultimate goal. 

RIP APRIL 14, 2021 Watch out for all the Beasties and Ghouls...

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.


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

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.
