Kayla Hardin
    Structural Editor 

Kayla is a lifelong bibliophile and perpetual learner, whose love for literature knows no bounds! Armed with a BA and MFA in English, specializing in Editing and Rhetoric, she's the wordsmith extraordinaire you want crafting your stories. Blame it on her dad - the culprit behind her early dive into Stephen King's spine-chilling tales. From that fateful introduction sprang a lifelong obsession with horror stories, alongside an insatiable appetite for all things literary. Currently calling Cincinnati home, she shares her abode with a mischievous devil cat, two loyal dogs, a doting husband, and a budding bookworm son - proving that the love for reading runs deep in the family genes. When she's not lost in the pages of a captivating novel or fine-tuning manuscripts, you can find her exploring the surrounding wilderness or concocting whimsical tales of her own. With a pen in hand and a heart full of stories, she is ready to bring your monsters to life.
