Who We Are
Dixiane Hallaj, Ph.D.
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 Rommel, M.F.A.
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. She holds an MFA in Creative Writing/Poetry from Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA, where she taught several years, and is co-founder and president of the nonprofit Northwest Renaissance, Poets, Performers & Publishers, presenting poetry events in the Puget Sound Region since 1975.
