Managing Editor

Red Velvette

Red has simple tastes: fast cars, fast horses, and fast reads. She wants tight pacing, unique plot lines, and well-crafted prose that makes her see words in new ways.

She's a Texas girl with a B.A. from Tarleton State University (dean's list honors) in history. She's served as a freelance editor since 2017.

She's open minded in her reading preferences. Give her a taste of something new, something lovely. . . .

Acquisitions Editor

S. James 

Maness

James is an Aggie who bleeds maroon. His literary tastes vary, but he leans toward historical fiction, literary fiction, and fantasy. He doesn't mind a touch of romance.

He's a fan of James Joyce, Diana Gabaldon, Jane Austen, George R. R. Martin, and too many others to list.

Freelance Acquisitions Editor

Sage Webb

Sage is a former criminal defense attorney and the author of The Unremarkable Circumstances of Inmate 17656-090, which won Red City Review's Best Debut Novel Award for 2018. Before joining Stoneman House, she served as a senior editor for a nonprofit organization and then rose to become that group's vice president of content strategy and publications.

 

Her short stories have appeared in places such as the Birmingham Arts Journal, the Ocotillo Review, and Notre Dame's Grotto Network. She has received awards that include second place in the 2017 Hackney Literary Awards and a place on the short list for the 2018 Chester B. Himes Memorial Short Fiction Prize. She's an active-level member of International Thriller Writers and a professional member of PEN America. 

She loves Hemingway, Joyce Carol Oates, Rick Bass, and Raymond Carver. She favors the style and usage of David Foster Wallace, and she can't say no to a good adventure story. Give her legal thrillers, boat stories, and anything surfing.
