About S&H

History (and more)

S & H Publishing was formed with one goal in mind - providing quality books for our readers. We want to attract a following of devoted readers who depend on us to find exciting new books that entertain, inspire, and inform. Today's book market is more alive than ever, with new talented writers who are bursting with great stories and fresh enthusiasm.

Just as the contemporary woman is not restricted by genre or age, talent is not restricted by distance or national borders. We pride ourselves on the international community of talented writers we bring to our readers.

Sometimes new writers have more enthusiasm than craftsmanship. That's where our expertise comes into play. Everyone associated with S & H is an avid reader and understands the disappointment of picking up a book that sounds interesting only to have it marred by poor writing, poor editing, or poor proofreading. We cannot guarantee perfection, but we continually strive for it.

Who We Are

dixie

Dixiane Hallaj, Ph.D.

Acquisitions Editor

When Dixiane's doctoral dissertation was described as a page-turner, she turned her talents to writing fiction. Impatient with the trade publishing process, she founded S & H Publishing, Inc. in 2014. As a reader for awesomeindies.net and an evaluator for indiePendents.org for several years, she was impressed by the depth and quality of today’s new authors. Now she actively recruits this talent for S & H. Dixiane lives in Purcellville, VA with her husband of 54 years and their cat named Dog.

Marjorie

Marjorie Rommel, M.F.A.

Managing Editor

Marjorie Rommel lives in Auburn, WA, where she cares for her husband, three cats, 847 birds, 54 squirrels, and a snarky brace of possums in her large back yard. She is Poet Laureate of her city, leads an after-school teen writers group, and is active in the local poetry scene. She was an Espy Foundation Resident in 2000, and received a White Bridge Traveling Fellowship from the Adam Family Foundation in 2001.
